When the tabletop emerges from the mold at Preserving Nature Crafts, it marks the beginning of an intricate process. At the heart of this transformation is the art of sanding, a meticulous journey that elevates our Live Edge River Tables to masterpieces.

Shaping Foundations with Initial Grits 120 or 240

The initial sanding at 120 or 240 grit is where the foundation is laid. Skilled artisans at Preserving Nature Crafts meticulously shape the table, refining edges and contours. This stage sets the tone for the table's final form, bringing us one step closer to revealing its inherent beauty.

Revelation in Progress Progressing Through the Grits in Sanding River Tables

As we progress through the grits sanding river tables, the table undergoes a remarkable evolution. Each pass with finer grits reveals more of the live edge river table's true character. The patterns of the wood and the river-like epoxy resin become increasingly mesmerizing, capturing the essence of nature's infusion in our creations. We must use rubbing alcohol between layers and grits so it doesn't melt the epoxy resin and it can show us where we've missed as well.
