Spalted Oak/Epoxy Resin Hybrid – A Lidded Box

March 8, 2022 By Billy Burt Sr Off

I put some green polyester resin shavings from years ago into the bottom of the mold and added a piece of punky spalted oak. I filled the mold with Blueberry tinted resin and put it in the pressure pot. I had to add more since the oak soaked up a lot more than I anticipated. I then turned it and a hackberry finial. I ebonized the finial using Speedball Super Black India Ink. I finished the box with four coats of Deft Gloss Lacquer. I still need to buff it out and I’ll do that in a few days after the lacquer fully cures. If you have questions that I didn’t answer, feel free to contact me. Thanks for watching.
