Table with epoxy resin inlay and matching lamp

  • Published on Apr 20, 2017
  • I transformed this ugly duckling table to a nice table with laid in pebbles. The piece of wood that I cut out, I turned into a lamp. I'm very satisfied with the set. In the process I learned a lot about how to handle epoxy.
    I used 2 x 1,2 Watt 12 volt G4 LEDs and a 24 volts 'warm white' LED-strip. The power supply of the lamp is hidden in a special piece of wood I made for the lamp. The steel cables are used for powering the lamp. These steel cables are being sold in a hanging kit, I bought them from a local webshop,
    I used 15 mm U-shaped aluminium strip. The video starts with the making of it, if you are just interested in the finished result, skip to 7:35.

    So very imaginative, beautiful and cool!!!! The LED lights look like a trail of hot golden coals spralled out in a line amoung the rocks, like after someone stepped in each place they left hot golden embers behind!! If you want more of a glow maybe try dropping the LEDs down by adding one more and placing back to back and then up against the underside center with the lights facing out sideways, and then adding a reflective surface around the edges of the underside of the rocked area, angled up towards the strips in center of table so the light will reflect off of the reflective surface an back up at the underside of the surface from edge to center. I think that will light the underside up like I think you were expecting and wanted!!
    Wonderful build, I subbed!!!

    this project is awesome man! Might I suggest a way to make the LED strip light more evenly thought? Instead of directly placing the LED facing up, it would be better to flip it upside down and make an angled reflection plate to put under it just so slightly.

    A beautiful project in general, but the way you have chosen to cut it - all the holes, spoiled the beauty of the product . It would have been simpler if you had created a cut in another way.

      I chose this because imho it resembles the outline of stones. Therefore the shape connects with the stones.. (I obviously disagree.. 😆😁 )

    If I did this to our dining table, my Mum would slap the living shit out of me, tie me to the table, and waterboard me, under that lamp, until I gave up this dude and his instructional video. Sorry Table Guy, I want you to know, I'm gonna hold out as long as I can (my record is 5 seconds during torture), before I rat you and your wonderful channel out.
    My Mum is like Liam Neeson...she may not know who you are, she may not know what you want, but if you ruin her dining table....she will find you, and she will kill you !
    lol. I'm joking. She does have a very peculiar set of special skills do you dude ! Good job ! 😉

    Very nice transformation. The only thing that bugged me was the lamp didnt look as tho it could be lowered down and set in place like a puzzle piece in the cut out section . Just me , i wanted it to look alike . But its really beautiful.

    • Onrust!

      I guess many people find it annoying that I turned it... But I had to, because (as you can see) I drove some screws in the top of the wood, and those holes would have shown if I would have used the wood as if it was to fit in... So I flipped the wood around, but now it won't ever 'fit' again... Sorry.... Thank you.

    I'm a carpenter and that was such a cool idea. Many of my customers get rid of old furniture for new stuff after I remodel their houses so what a great idea this would be to reuse some of their old pieces to make new especially when they have sentimental value but they just don't match the new stuff. AWESOME! Thank you for sharing!

      'Why would anyone want to see gravel?' - Just because you don't know the answer to that question doesn't mean that there is no answer... The very essence of what you're saying is that we don't connect. And if we don't connect, then this comment of yours is meaningless. My advice for you would be to stop with these comments.
      Wish you all the best. 👍

      Thank you! That's an intriguing question.. mmm... MDF... I wouldn't have thought about that. I'm not particular fond of MDF. But I like the question anyway.. 😊 I don't really know, but I think not. I think the epoxy is so thin, that it would run into the MDF, and that would be ugly. But I confess, I don't know. I like these kind of questions, but in this case I would not try it..

    C'est très joli. Par contre c'est vrai que s'il y avait plus de rubans de leds ça serait un peu mieux. Et moi j'aurais plutôt fait un miroir avec de la lumière qui sort par derrière avec le morceau en trop. Mais le rendu est très sympa. Un beau travail qui a dû demander beaucoup de temps !

    You said there was a problem with epoxy spilling underneath the table or something but i did not see any problem. What were you talking about?

    • Onrust!
      Onrust!  3 months ago

      No, not really. It turned out OK. But it's a learning process.. 😊 Had I to do it again, I would not first finish the wood, but sand & polish the whole thing, so the epoxy too, afterwards...

    • TheKingDavid
      TheKingDavid 3 months ago

      @Onrust! oh, so it was not that big of a problem after all?

    • Onrust!
      Onrust!  3 months ago

      No, not underneath the table, but underneath the tape I put on at the sides. That tape was useless. I put it on not to let the epoxy get to the already finished wood, but it crawled under. And, as turned out, you can easily wipe the still wet epoxy away, so there really is no need for tape.

    Very unique idea! You mentioned you wouldn't have used the tape, if you could go back, what would you have used? Also, those wires do they go to the cielling? I wonder if making a couple of posts that went through the rocks and fixed under would of been more appealing? I'm assuming you went with batter powered? Would be a pain to run a cord anywhere!

    • John T

      @Onrust! hey, thanks for the reply. I actually (literally, just did like two minutes ago), just finished cutting a piece of live wood down. I am getting ready to attempt something similar to this, so the feedback is helpful. Thanks again, and I enjoyed the video; very helpful.

    • Onrust!
      Onrust!  3 months ago

      About the tape: I would - as I eventually did - just remove the tape. Mistakenly spilled epoxy you can easily remove when wet. I chose to do it like this because I finished the wood before pouring the epoxy. That meant however, that after pouring the epoxy, I could never touch it again, so no sanding or polishing. And this is the way you learn, because now I would NOT finish the wood, I would have poured the epoxy in excess, and would have sanded and polished the whole afterwards. That way, the epoxy would wind up flatter than it is now.
      The lamp is powered through the hanging wires. That is the cool part... 😊 I made a ceiling piece especially for the lamp - a piece of wood (about the same color) with two hooks to hang the lamp, and I wired the hooks. The required transformer is above the ceiling piece.
      The LED-strip in the table has a transformer of its own, so no batteries. Yes, the wire coming off is a pain. I would certainly think of some battery powered solution for a future project, yes.
