Hi Colin, what dyes are you using?

Mark Mossinghoff says:

Greetings from St Louis!

Steve Larson says:

Another wonderful thing about the Ecopoxy brand is that you pour the whole depth in one pour, whereas the other brands you have to only pour 1/8 to 1/4 inch layers and let set between pours due to heat problems.

Steve Larson says:

I love the tip of using the beans to determine volume

Steve Larson says:

We have found that with the Ecopoxy brand you do NOT use heat. Heat actually helps put bubbles into it. As does fiddling with it. Just mix, and pour without letting it pour off the stick back into the container. The bubbles will come out on their own. Ecopoxy is different than the other brands. Another thing that Canadians do better 🙂

Ivo Kolarik says:

If you use thicker plastic you get rid of the wrinkles

Dave's Shed says:

Thanks for the video. My concern is the lack of flatness of the plastic sheet. That Tuck tape is not available in Australia. Will normal packing tape work just as well?

JohnK2112 says:

Awesome tips! Thank you!

Harold H says:

That bean trick is BRILLIANT! I am always a little low in my estimates or make too much. Very cool.

James Meyer says:

You amaze me! Thank you for such useful insights!

Lance M says:

Nice video I learned a lot from this. I have seen other woodworkers use shellac to seal the wood prior to pouring, it is supposed to prevent the epoxy from staining the wood. Would you recommend that for your next pour?

Eugene Owen says:

I really enjoyed this video. Thank you for sharing.

Grampie's Workshop says:

How's she goin'? The tops looks some nice!!! Great tip to not scrap the sides of the container when pouring. I have used some epoxy before and never really liked it as it felt tacky. This must have been the reason why as I did scrap the sides of the mixing container. Take care!!!

Conrad rieckhoff says:

Thanks Colin will the moisture bleed from the epoxy on the wood sand out

Paolo Joe Jingy says:

There is space between the beans, how does that work?

Leandro Silva says:

Very smart using the beans with a measure pattern, im think using sand or some dust would result in a better precision. Nice video as always

Sterling Davis says:

Good Stuff, great Ideas, and tips, Thanks for sharing

Jack Mortimer says:

You can get rid of bubbles by putting the mixed epoxy into a vacuum chamber for a while. The vacuum will pull the bubbles out quite nicely.
