This vintage desk was already beautiful when I found it slowly rotting away in a wet, deteriorating barn. It wanted to be liberated and given new life. I felt that its only functional flaw was the partially-rotted surface, which I did not want to simply replace. The technique implemented was a simple, multi-pour epoxy cast using dyed epoxy resin; this resulted in an extremely strong and flat surface, which accents the filled voids without hiding the texture of the original wood surface.
