There are some projects out there that seem to be hellbent on breaking your spirit. For me, it was almost my crazy Epoxy waterfall river table build. But instead of letting the constant obstacles that came my way get me down, I faced them head-on. After two full months of getting kicked in the ass by this project, I finally achieved my final vision in this gorgeous Epoxy waterfall table. 

Learn how I took on one of my toughest challenges yet! If you’re following along at home or want to try it out for yourself, be sure to take a look at my video below.

CRAZY Epoxy Waterfall River Table Build

I used a single pour for my Epoxy waterfall river table. Using an intricate crafting technique, I also added some bubbles to the river for extra depth. To build my rock, I used a technique I like to call “Glue it and Screw it.” Basically, I just glue and screw a wooden shelf together. 

I’m not going to lie, this project was a tough one. As you will see when you watch my video, I faced loads of roadblocks. But after working through FOUR broken tables, I finally made a stunning waterfall river table.
