The process was a multicast procedure which took a few batches so that the exothermic reaction wouldn't cause natural wood oils to come out of the wood. The first pour was just a base one to get into the hidden void spaces and make sure that nothing came out to the other side, which is always a worry with a wood like this. I kept the piece covered so nothing would get on the surface and then the second day poured another batch in, following the first day's procedure. A total of 4 pours were needed to get the resin to near the tape supported piece and the tape was removed for the final pour to allow the wood to rest naturally against the prior day's pour. Pour 5 started the final covering procedure and came around that wood piece to support it up to its sides. I was willing to let the hardened resin be a bit concave which happened as part of the normal shrinkage in casting. With good adherence to the sides and internal void spaces that was the only way it could shrink.
Now the bench has that as an extra feature which took some time, but seemed like a much better idea than just filling it in flat with putty or colored epoxy.
- Easy to work with
- Fills in void spaces
- Relatively fast set-up for multi-pour situations
- Exothermic, which means thinking ahead on the amount to cast at a given time
- Shrinks as it cools
- Time consuming for larger pieces
For me this was a great solution as an alternative that my normal methods wouldn't address.
