How to Make a Rustic Table with Epoxy Resin

I offered to build a table for my sister in November while brainstorming project ideas during Thanksgiving.  My sister is older than me, which typically means she does more favors for me than I do for her.

 

 

how to make a rustic table - for my sister

 

I spoke to my sister and traded many Pinterest screenshots via text over a two week period to get an idea of the style table she wanted me to build.  The final decision was a industrial style table with a rustic style with reclaimed wood.

I decided to incorporate a few unique elements to this rustic table, which compliment my sister’s personality and her faith.

Needless to say, I was happy to build this table for my sister.  I completed the table the same week as her birthday, which made it more special.
