    Today I show you how I made an epoxy resin sphere. It's basically trapped pine cones inside of the epoxy, formed so it has a small stand. After it all hardened, I sanded it down to 500 grit. Afterwards i used my own sanding paste for the finish.

    Nice. Looks like a beast of a machine lathe there.

    I have been messing around with pine cones lately as well. What kind of epoxy did you use?

    It looks very nice. The video shows how you turned the sphere after the epoxy cured, but I think that the most important part of the procedure is missing. In order to have a complete procedure I think you should describe or show how you encapsulated the pine cone and what you did to minimize trapped air.
