Information
Want to practise before committing to a full size resin river table? Our newest shaped burr is just the ticket!

Trimmed specifically to fit our square silicone coaster and tile moulds our Shaped to Perfection River Coaster Burr slots into the mould allowing you to create your own unique wooden burl homeware without the need for saws or drills. Have fun making your very first resin river pour and try adding transparent pigments or swirling mica powder through to create different effects.

This mould takes approximately 80ml of resin to fill (when the burr is inside).

How?
  • After placing the burr into the mould, use Resin8 Heat-Resistant Resin (if you're using the finished piece as a coaster) or Resin8 Slowcure Epoxy Resin and your favourite pigment to fill the mould. 
  • Once dry, use Rejuven8 Wet and Dry Paper to smooth out any over-filled edges.
  • Once all lovely and smooth, either use polish, or simply paint on another thin of heat-resistant resin and leave to dry.
  • Your glorious piece is complete! 
What's a burr? A burr (or burl if you're from across the pond) is a tree growth which has caused the wood to grow in a deformed way. Usually this is from an injury to the tree or a virus, fungus or disease. This means that the wood is full of small knots and therefore looks very attractive when worked, and their waney edge retained. Burrs are often highly prized and are sought after for use in furniture, sculpture, art and jewellery. 

Our burrs are harvested from Australian Mallee (eucalyptus). The wood is richly coloured (compared to the non burred wood) and comes up a treat when polished. They are robust, stable and hard and can be polished with danish oil, a polyurethane spray or even a thin layer of resin.
