Making an Epoxy & Concrete Coffee Table

This episode shows how to make a modern coffee table from epoxy resin and white concrete. I’m calling it the “Arctic Erosion” coffee table. I used thick set epoxy resin with blue epoxy pigment, and a white GFRC concrete mix with white concrete pigment, to make this modern coffee table. Some have pointed out the concrete & epoxy coffee table somewhat resembles a Minecraft lake, although any resemblance is unintentional :)

I’m really happy how this table came out – the epoxy and white concrete both shine, and the design is probably my favorite thing I’ve made to date.

I think it is important when sharing designs, to give credit to other designers who inspired you. The design of this concrete and epoxy table was heavily inspired by Brandon Gore’s concrete erosion sink, and the art work of Ben Young. Since I don’t sell my work, Brandon would likely be the person to contact if you would like to buy a custom table that is similar to this. Here are links to both those folks – I highly suggest checking them out. They inspired me, and will likely inspire you too!
