    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

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

    Rob, this was the first picture I took, now the end board has half pennies, and yess all the penny will be glued on the board using epoxy, Will post picture when completely done.
