Follow this a little bit.


Repeat 4 times:

  1. Build wood form
  2. Drill hole for bolt
  3. Seal wood with anti-stick
  4. Pour first layer of resin, use torch to reduce bubbles
  5. Let dry enough (how much?)
  6. Put the bolt and anchor into the form (we do this after the first pour so we don't spill resin on it by accident and reduce clarity)
  7. Seal bolt with caulk
  8. Add bottles and/or caps
  9. Pour the rest of the leg, use torch to reduce bubbles
  10. Let dry
  11. Sand as needed

  7. Place caps
  8. Glue caps with hot glue
  9. Fill the top with resin, use torch to reduce bubbles
