    On my list of things to try... love the look. Just wondering if planing it down a little further would give you crisp lines between wood and resin rather than the areas where the epoxy is really thin covering the burl?

    FWIW I'm with Doc on this one. I like the sharp break from wood to resin. With the overlap it looks "muddy" for lack of a better term. The straight cuts of the wood are kind of jarring to me as well.

    HOWEVER I may fell that way because;

    I'm not used to seeing tables made that way.

    I'm looking at it via a screen and it may look WAAAAY cooler in person.

    The Burl cap peeking through the resin is an AWESOME effect!!

    Kudos for taking it on.

    Looks really nice. Im with some of the others. Clear lines of distinction between wood and dyed epoxy would help. However, i think id try sanding it down, not planing.
    But looks awesome just the way it is
