Making a Table Entirely Out of Epoxy Resin

Making a Table Entirely Out of Epoxy Resin

Most furniture has a structure made out of wood or metal. But HomeMadeModern wanted to see if it was possible to fabricate a table entirely from epoxy resin. He started by making a wood prototype, then used those parts to create silicone molds to cast the resin. The finished piece is sturdy and has a truly unique look.

We’ve seen a lot of cool custom guitar builds over the years, but we’re particularly enchanted by this one.

If there’s one thing you don’t want staring you in the face when you turn the bathroom lights on, it’s a creepy Alien xenomorph spider taking a bath in your sink.

We’ve always been wowed by the craft of Kumiko. Inspired by the elegant Japanese latticework, Make With Miles created a unique electric guitar with a body that incorporates the technique.

After building three electric guitar bodies out of colored pencils, Burls Art has stepped up his game by making one with more than 2000 individual pencils, nearly doubling his last effort, and incorporating the neck into the same mold as the body. Watching that crystal clear epoxy poured over the pencils is just so satisfying.

In the Fortress of Doom in DOOM Eternal, you’ll see a trio of bad-ass guitars, designed by artist Ethan Evans. Orbital Guitars looked at the one in the middle called the Crucible, and said “yeah, I can make that,” and got to building a real-world, 8-string version of the guitar. It’s made from wenge wood and epoxy resin.

Making a Sink from Plywood

Making a Sink from Plywood

Sinks are usually made from porcelain or metal, but builder Laura Kampf wanted something a little different to replace the beat-up old slop sink in her shop, so she created one by laminating scraps of plywood, then coating them with an ample dose of epoxy to make it watertight. Now she needs a proper backsplash.

Making a Bowl from Handkerchiefs

Making a Bowl from Handkerchiefs

Maker Nick Zammeti shows us how something as simple as a stack of handkerchiefs can become a work of art. Watch as he creates a small bowl from a stack of the cloths saturated with epoxy resin. As he works through the layers on a lathe, various colors and marbled patterns emerge from the pile.

Ocean in a Cup

Ocean in a Cup

Roman Khramov of 5 min Minibricks shows us how to create a tiny diorama of a boat and ocean waves inside of a tea cup using 3D printing, paint, cotton, and resin. The base was created with a Snapmaker 3D printer, but it required craftsmanship and skill to bring the scene to life with such detail. (Thanks Niklaus!)
