My dog's bowl was looking pretty rough so it seemed time I build her a new one. I wanted something that could handle water and generally take a beating. Resin seemed like the perfect option. I had been wanting to make a resin panel filled with scrap wood for a while so I started with that and then put the panel through the X-Carve CNC Router to form the bowl holder. I welded a base for it and then put it all together.
This was a great project because it incorporated a little bit of woodworking, resin, the CNC Router, and welding. The dog loves it and it has held up to rough use very well.
It seemed time I take a crack at making a classic Resin River Table. This build was a fantastic experience because it incorporated wood working, resin, and welding into one finished piece.
This was also a milestone project as my first major metal build in a while. I studied public art in College and did a lot of welding back then, about 15 years ago. This project was the perfect excuse to get back to it and re-teach myself what I know.
This was also my first try at using Ecopoxy.
I hope you enjoy!
Father, Maker, and all around fun guy.
