Cypress Glowing Table

Use a ‘pecky cypress’ and the resin with a glow in the dark powder to make stunning furniture.
Hey, all DIY fans! Do you remember the Glowing Shelf I showed you some time ago? The results were amazing during the day and at night! It seems that not only I am under a big impression of the marvelous effects that gives the resin mixed with glowing powder.

You can use this brilliant method in any wood projects. One of the contributors on the ‘Instructables’ shows in precise steps a brilliant method of making glowing table. He used 'pecky cypress' - the regular cypress that has been naturally damaged. Shining formula fills the naturally formed voids in hardwood, creating a stunning table. Find the perfect place for this unique piece of furniture. It can suits well your home as well as your garden.

Try this project out, maybe you can use some other color of the resin? If you take the challenge let me know in comments below!

    We did an outside bar with cedar that had the natural wood holes and planned on using some type of resin to seal and waterproof it. We finally decided on marine resin used to seal wood and other parts in boats. This worked great. A tip I would like to share: when the can label says that it starts to harden in 15 mins, they are NOT joking. It says 15 mins you better be finished spreading in 14 mins. I would actually suggest not mixing the whole can at once if you have and medium sized or larger project. I learned the hard way.

    Be very aware that epoxy resins are quite toxic as green dust (not quite cured) even cured dust is very toxic. Many people can become allergic to epoxy once exposed. You should use a good respirator and disposable coveralls!
