Everyone loves having a unique piece of furniture, whether its uniqueness has to do with the personal story behind it, like a coffee table made out of the old Oak tree that stood in the yard for generations, or, in this case, due to appearance. This is a ‘glow table’ and believe it or not, it’s quite simple to make.
Any type of wood would work if you have a router, but if you use Pecky cypress, it’s even easier, because that type of wood already has natural grooves and indentations in it.
After clearing out the grooves, simply smooth the surface down with a sander, as pictured above.
Then mix a photo-luminescent powder into simple resin to fill in the grooves. Pick your favorite color, any will do.
After a short time of soaking up some light, then put in a bit of shade, your table begins to glow already.
But that pales in comparison to how things will look once it truly gets dark!
Remember to seal it up with a polyurethane finish after sanding it down again once the glow in the dark resin has dried.
And then you have your final product! For video instructions on how to do this, watch this video from YouTube!
