Pour live edges epoxy top layer

Post by AlexBF » Thu Feb 27, 2020 10:26 am

Hi :)
I'm refurbishing a 1930s veneered dressing table, which I want to use to install a counter top basin and high rise tap for my bathroom.
As the whole project is turning out quite elegant I was considering an epoxy clear glass layer (maybe a little more than half cm) on the top, which also would make it more waterproof. So basically it would look like having glass top but sealing the wood at the same time.
My only concern are the edges.
Watching a ton of videos I see that they pour the epoxy and let it drip on the edges, which isn't an option for me.
So I would need to build a 'barrier' around the top (which is curved) just for the pouring, something I can peel of reasonably easily when the epoxy is cured and that prevents the epoxy from leaking.
Some sort of tape? Any ideas?
Thanks!
