First of all, hello UKworkshop! As you can see, we are fresh blood on this forum. We think the best way to introduce ourselves and show what is that we do is by showing our latest project - this seems like the right place to do it. It's a clear, encapsulated epoxy resin corner featured on an English Walnut surface. You can check it out in the attachments.

Contrary to what it may seem, it's not that hard to recreate. We encourage you try it for yourself and see - it's really worth it, the outcome is quite stunning. We recently uploaded a step-by-step DIY video, which shows the whole process and how to achieve this exact effect. The main point is that you do not need to be a specialist to create something special. If you feel intrigued enough to watch the video, just type Earthy Timber into YouTube and click the first video that pops up. Make sure to let us know what you think, as we'd love to get some feedback (it's our first attempt at something like this), and feel free to ask any questions if they pop-up, even if it's about fitting etc. The part II, which shows the finishing process (how the effect in the picture was obtained), is coming next week.

We look forward to hearing your opinion. Thank you for reading and have a great day!

Interesting , looks like a great way to use up timber that would otherwise probably be cut to remove the defect plus it looks cool,
looking forward to the next vid .
Nice works guys, haven't checked the video as I'm at work but who h type of epoxy did you use and where from?

Do you experience any difficulties with differential seasonal/environmental movement? i.e. if the wood moves do the resin pieces loosen, or do you keep the dimensions small enough for it to not be an issue?
@Monkeybiter Kiln drying the timber to below 10% moisture content keeps the movement minimal, and the resin we use is flexible enough to support this. Thank you for pointing this out, I should have included this information in the video. If you want to recreate this effect we really recommend you get a moisture-meter, the moisture content of the timber is really crucial not only for this technique but for interior wood surfaces in general. Also, pre-drilling the holes in the wood before you pour in the resin as mentioned in the video will increase the durability and keep the corner in place. Granted all these terms are met, there should be no problems.

@Estoril We use 2 different types of resin, one for the base layer and one for the final layer. I can't remember them off the top of my head exactly, but the full names are listed in the video. Once you have the names, you can easily find them online. Let me know if there are any problems I will do my best to assist.

@Porker Thank you for your support. And yes the lack of guard is a mistake on our behalf, I apologise. Health and safety first!
Just got in from work and took a look. I enjoyed it. Subbed your channel and liked. Look forward to your follow ups. Good luck with building your business presence online. Hope it progresses well.
Now... About those Walnut offcuts....
I might know someone who might find a use for the bits you probably throw away and would be willing to come to an arrangement for bits that might be big enough to make plane handles etc. I'm asking for a friend :D A friend that has the very same PM address as me weirdly. :wink: Life is always better when we co operate for mutual benefit I've found. :D

We are the only company in the UK to use vacuum kiln-drying.

Morgan Timber in Kent use a WDE Maspell vacuum kiln.

Just letting you know, so you're not putting false claims on your website. :roll:
How did you deal with bubbles in the resin (I know: watch the video! Time is pressing today though).

OK, watched it - they didn't really form and it wets the surface better than I thought it would.

Very nice idea, nice video.

One point, you'll get better pouring when your chemical containers are nearly full, if you do it with the handle downwards or sideways. I was waiting for it to dribble everywhere... ;-)
@Chris Thank you for your support! The new video should be uploaded this Monday. About the offcuts... I will take some pictures of what we have available and PM the friend before 5pm if that's OK with him [;

@Naz We appreciate you taking the time to visit our website (as you can see it's still under development; we are also dealing under the name Timberdeal, which you could say has a more 'complete' website). This is by no means an attack on Morgan Timber, but if you compare our kiln to this technology, the difference is really quite drastic (we have a few pictures on the Timberdeal website - 'v kiln service'). Our main focus are slabs so we require a much larger and specialised kiln, but the compact version you pointed at should definitely be enough for this particular process. Your point remains very valid however, a vacuum kiln is a vacuum kiln, and we will change this information ASAP. Thank you for pointing this out.

@Eric We are glad you like the video. The 'stirring tool' aka stick with a hole in it (haha) should take care of the bubble problem nicely. The more carefully you stir the better, and heating the resin before mixing with hardener always helps. And thank you for the pouring tip! We will definitely use that in upcoming resin videos.
