Creating Waves on a Coffee Table

Supplies Required

  • Glass Coffee Table
  • Phenol Formaldehyde Resin
  • Industrial Grade Spray Gun
  • Glazing Compound
  • Power Sander

Step 1: Take Measurements

Before you embark on creating the surface shift, take measurements of the surface area of the coffee table. Also, decide the size and the number of waves you will be creating on the surface of the table.

Step 2: Prepare the Table Surface

Make sure the surface of the table is clean. Use a strong solvent to remove any debris or impurities from the surface. Use a power sander to create a smooth surface.

Step 3: Prepare the Resin

Mix the phenol formaldehyde resin and the glazing compound in a bowl. This resin will act as a glue to hold the waves together. Use an industrial grade spray gun to spread the resin evenly over the surface of the table.

Step 4: Create the Waves

Using a damp rag, create the waves on the surface of the table. Create some tension by pulling the rag until it forms crests and troughs. Make sure to leave enough room between each wave. Once the desired shape has been achieved, let it sit for a few minutes.

Step 5:Sand and Refine

Once the waves have been formed, use a power sander to refine each wave. This will smooth out any imperfections and create a uniform look.

Step 6: Apply a Sealer

Once the waves have been created and sanded, apply a sealer to protect the surface of the table. This will prevent the resin from deteriorating over time.

Creating waves on a coffee table is not a difficult task and can be done by anyone with the right materials and instruction. Following these steps will ensure that the waves created are strong, durable, and look great!
