Thread: Elk N Epoxy Bartop

    Elk N Epoxy Bartop

    Hello all,

    Big day today.

    We decided to fill the elk to within 1/16 of the bar top.

    What we used is Mas slow cure epoxy.

    These pictures do not accurately describe the scary lifelike result.

    We were scared to. Again over nothing.

    Almost like we knew what we were doing.

    Elk & Epoxy

    Per,
    That is AWESOME. Being a hill billy and one not afraid to say I grew up hinting & fishing at Dad's side... that is truly amazing! And the fact it's in a bar top is even better. I hope it gets much admiration from those resting a beverage and elbow near it.

    Top stuff, Per Why did you use slow cure epoxy? Dose that have anything to do with making sure their are no bubbles in it or for some other reason.

    Man, it's been a while since I've been around the creek - now I see what sort of stuff I've been missing!

    Beautiful job, Per!

    Thanks every one.

    Yeah there is no going back once you pour that stuff.

    Terry,
    Yes, slow cure is the way to go and you chase the bubbles out with
    a hair dryer.
