    Re: Cabinet for a knife collection

    I think the long borders look fine but the ends look unfinished? Either scalloping the wood or cutting pennies in half would look better to me. Is the idea to pour a thick layer on top of the pennies without gluing them down first?

      Re: Cabinet for a knife collection

      The problem with poured epoxy is getting rid of the air bubbles and there will be air under those pennies, if you have a higher boarder the epoxy will be drawn up the edge as water is in a glass so you could go for an edge 4mm or 5mm maybe 6mm higher than the pennies, paint (acrylic) the back board black of something, I wonder if by gluing each penny down you will eliminate the air problem under the pennies, when I did a bench top pour with epoxy the instructions said it needed a 23 degree temperature for 24 hours so the work piece has to be at 23 deg before you start, you can do multiple pours but you have to maintain that 23 deg, to get the trapped air out you wave a soft flame or a blow torch over the epoxy ( heat gun ) it makes the epoxy very thin and runny so it flows and brings the air the the surface but as soon as the heat is off it returns to its curing process in fact the heat speeds up the curing process, you also need the correct epoxy as there are so many kinds for different jobs.
      I do wonder about the epoxy pulling the top bent as it dries if it is only thin wood I have nothing to base this on so I could be all wrong.
      Have another try you have the talent to make this work.

            Very nice Jacques.
            I'm thinking it must have taken some muscle to put it in place.

                    The top of penny's is very nice, it would be good to know of your trials and tribulations if you don't mind sharing them, there is always something to learn, did you do it yourself? did you have an air problem? what epoxy did you use? did you warm it up and for how long? and so on.

                              The top is made usinf 1470 penneys, what I did is clean them up a little bit with just a dry cloth, each penney is glued on a half inch russian birch, one quater inch epoxy is poured onto the pennies, yes there were bubble but with a small blow torch no problem everyting went very well, you just have to watch for the bubble to come up, the board has to be level, my next projet will be doing part of my bedroom floor, I just bought $100.00 worth of pennies, and I need about $300.00 . Will get you tyhe name of the epoxy when I get in my shop this morning, will send you a picture of gthe can.
                              Take good care and have a nice day
