Check Out This Carbon Fiber Epoxy Table Top! Can You Imagine A Bar Top Made With This Stuff!

We’re in the process of bidding and designing a new house and shop and when I saw this carbon fiber epoxy table from the guys at Stone Coat Countertops I was in love. I’m not sure I’d want my entire kitchen to be covered in this stuff, but man a bar sure would be awesome. The epoxy coat is super durable, easy to re-coat if damaged, and could be done at home with some practice. We’d do our own if we got enough practice in to feel comfortable not screwing up a sheet of carbon fiber. Note this one has red in it, but there several colors available now and it would be cool to play with them.

Epoxy countertops are nothing new, but the designs that people are doing now have seriously pushed the envelope and make having any look you desire a reality, if you find the right installer. Metallics make stone look counters a whole new level of cool and we love them, but this carbon look is really something special to us. This video shows you just how to do it, and we are going to have to practice everything it shows on something small in the near future.

    Sorry, Chad, you blew it! The sixth word out of his mouth at the beginning of this video was “faux”, followed by “carbon fiber”. Faux, as in phoney, fake, and imposter. I have black fiberglass that looks exactly like 2X2 twill carbon, and can get it in any colors just like this guy did.
    But if yould like a real one, we can sure build you one, and it’d look better than this (you can see where they didn’t hold the material well enough and the cloth pattern is skewed). The next thing about this table is that, wood or not, the carbon is going to become delaminted from the base, because wood expands and contracts with humidity, and the carbon doesn’t. We’re Factory Ten Composites on FB…

    I would NOT cut, route or sand MDF without a mask, those fiber are so small and you only get one set of lungs…usually.
