Floating Nightstand with Epoxy Inlay | Bedside Table …I wanted these floating nightstands to have a bit of design pop to them, so I reached out to my good friend, Paul Jasper of Copper Pig Fine Woodworking, to help me. He has pioneered the technique of using metal powders with epoxy to create unbelievably creative and unique designs. The floating nightstand cases were mitered to create a waterfall look with continuous grain. They have a crisp modern design, but I wanted the fronts to really grab your attention. So, with Paul’s assistance, we fired up his CNC and carved a modified Asanoha Japanese pattern in the front and filled it with brass powder and TotalBoat epoxy. I would like the experiment a little more with the infinite possibilities that this design aesthetic offers. Due to the size of each floating nighstand, I also need to rethink the French cleat hanging solution. Yikes. Huge thanks to TotalBoat for the epoxy and Paul Jasper for all his assistance.
