What Is A Resin Table?

Pouring epoxy resin river tables require certain types of epoxy and certain techniques. Most coating epoxies require thin pours of no more than 1/8 to 1/4″ per application. Because many DIY epoxy river tables are much thicker than 1/8 inch, multiple layers must be used or a thinner, slower curing epoxy must be used.
