Bonsai display table -resin?

Before I take on making an outdoor display table, resin poured I figured I should check if any of you crazy tree loving creatives has given this a shit already? Searched the web with out any bonsai specific results.


I think it has potential. However, just like elaborate pots and stands we it comes down to what will draw the eye. The tree, the pot, the stand, the table?

Epoxy resin is commonly used in wooden boat building and can hold up to the elements with a couple of considerations. Exposure to UV will eventually cause the resin to yellow. You will want to use a UV inhibiting top coat which gets re-applied every year. Second, direct exposure to high temps can compromise the resin. Depending on your zone this may or may not be an issue.

I was thinking marine grade epoxy to deal with the UV and I was under the impression that was UV resistant. I did not know about a top coat to protect from the UV, so that’s helpful thank you!
