Workshop Tip: Defend out of doors furnishings with epoxy foot pads

This technique works on out of doors furnishings to stop the ft from wicking water up into the legs and alluring rot, and on indoor furnishings to stop the ft from damaging flooring. Create a easy properly on the backside of every foot by making use of masking tape as proven, after which pour in a 1/8-in.- thick layer of 5-minute epoxy. Depart the epoxy for just a few hours to completely remedy and also you’ll discover it simple to trim with a block aircraft, making it simple to degree the ft. The epoxy might be left clear, dyed black, or dyed to match the colour of the wooden. I used it most just lately on an outside aspect desk.
