This table was a long time comin. It began it's life as a glued on, lighter burned, scraped up coffee table at my friend's college apartment.
I had my grandpa put an edge on the top so the resin would stay in when poured. Then I glued down one kangaroo and it sat in my living room for a year.
I made a covered top for it so it wouldn't look too goofy while in progress. But it was equally goofy itself:
So we tossed that, and then, in under a week it went from that to this:
I put aussie coins on a few of the major cities.
The glass was glued down, then grouted, then resined. easy as pie. It's very heavy before, now with glass, grout, and resin, it's a solid ton.
If I were to do it over again, I would use uniformly sized pieces. It saved time obviously to use the bigger pieces, but seeing it as a whole completed, I know I would do it differently. C'est la vie.
I'd love to hear what you think.
