How to Make a Rustic Table with Epoxy Resin
I love building tables with unique wood and epoxy resin. The combination of these two elements enhances the wood’s natural beauty and preserves it’s look for many years. In this tutorial, I show you how to make a rustic table with epoxy resin and reclaimed wood.

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.
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.
