For the past few weekends, my side project has been this slab maple coffee table. While there aren’t any electronics inside, I couldn’t help but document the project and write up a guide on the Adafruit Learning System. I really enjoyed learning about the process of epoxy-finishing wood and wanted to pass along the fun, open source style. Inside you’ll find links to all the materials I used as well as tons of process pics.
This 150 year-old maple tree was cut down on my parents’ Connecticut property two years ago, and this slice has been drying in their barn since. I’ve had a long time to think about this project and it was a blast finally finishing it up!
