Iron Forest Wood Company houses a variety hardwood slabs from area sawmills. These include Walnut, Oak, Cherry, Osage Orange, Ash, Elm and Pecan
It takes an artists eye to envision what that raw slab can become. Laying out the pieces and moving them around until the picture is complete is key to a beautiful table.
Craftsmen create framing for the readied pieces to be placed and laid out ready for the initial pouring of the epoxy resin.
There are hundreds of colors and special effects that can be incorporated into the epoxy resin as it is mixed. These effects include color additives and even glow powder that gives the table a glow in the dark effect.
The pour is one of the most important steps in this process. Combining colored resin and additives to the "river" to give special effects that make each table truly one of a kind.
Once the resin is hardened there are additional steps in finishing and polishing the product. This slow process creates a mirror finish that will last fro years.
