Hi all :D, I’m a newbie to the ukworkshop forum and also a newbie to woodworking. I’m after some advice as to what epoxy resins people use for resin river chopping boards/serving board/drinks coasters please. I’ve started with Glasscast 50 which seems simple to use but after some other ideas as well. Thanks in advance :D

Same as I use - If it works stick (lol) with it as you will know how it works, the open time and how pigments work with it.

I think epoxy on a cutting board will score quickly if the knife user is heavy handed.
The one epoxy name that is always highly recommended is West Systems.

It definitely will. I don't think epoxy is a suitable material for this purpose.
