Preparing for a resin table top pour / by James Gray

Careful planning must be a part of a successful end product.  The biggest problem with casting resin is the heat build up.  I constructed a mold for a 3" thick top by building a flowing water bath around it.  This will help me cool it down and control the heat which can cause cracking and warping.  I also am adding an extruded panel of polycarbonite to gain stability.  Same with the pour for the legs that will support the top.
