Looks great Rob. How did you get the contrast between the black and white? Did you use white epoxy, let it set up, then poor the black?

As an experiment, I used acrylic white paint and painted the edges of the chunks of Cedar that would be on the outside. The paint wasn't quite dry when I poured the resin and what you see is how it ended up turning out.
