The beauty of this DIY Waterfall Table side table is that it includes three building techniques with excellent results.
Brad Rodriguez of Fix This Blood is an expert woodworker who has inspired us with projects such as his flip-top tool stand and patio cooler. But Rodriquez also specializes in welding and shows us how epoxy can be used to create a waterfall Table effect.
It all starts with a living edge slab, which he cut with a circular saw and lowered together with a planner. A few passes with an orbital sander smooth everything out, in preparation for the next step, which is epoxy pouring.

An epoxy resin form must consist of table pieces and poured epoxy. Then it’s time to mix and pour. Epoxy resin takes 72 hours to heal, and during that time you can make a metal base for the table. This simple base is welded together using square bars, but you can get custom creative, but it’s best to keep the design to a minimum to show the table.
If you want to hone your DIY skills, this project is a great way to use them all to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
