Looking good! What was the actual product name for your resin, and how much time did you have to work with it - and to get the bubbles out (with heat?)?

I used a gallon kit of EnviroTex Lite Pour-on finish. I may do one more flood coat to get it a bit thicker. My wife and I spent about 30 minutes spreading and then popping bubbles with a torch. I was surprised you can get a nice little one at Home Depot for $13.

Close up shots as requested. I will say our house has plenty of lint floating around. We may add another flood coat or leave it as is.

Looks basic but works VERY well. I love the 'cheap' bar top with the resin. So simple but so effective and actually looks pretty professional! I'd be very happy if I had a bar like that. Top job!

Awesome! Can't believe how well that resin flood coating comes out! Maybe the trick is to build a "tent" clean room out of drop cloth plastic to minimize the dust contamination on the surface while the flood coat sets up.

Local craft beer bar did the resin top over pennies. It looks awesome.

Looks great! Can't wait to do something very similar in my own basement.
