Our story:

 

Everyone asks how I got into this and it's always a lot of fun to share my journey. I was stationed with a friend at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, California from October 2006 to February 2011. During that time, I befriended one of my fellow AS’s who goes by Garret. He decided to get out of the Navy and moved back home to Colorado and did his woodworking at his dads mill. He started posting some of his work and it inspired me. I’ve always loved working with my hands and building projects but never really applied myself in that arena. See, when I was in high school, I took woodworking. It was fun and I learned how to use the tools but one afternoon, someone broke into my locker and stole my project. It was too late to start a new one so I never got to finish my work. So, when I saw some of the work my buddy was doing over in Colorado, my mind was blown at how beautiful this new art was. I asked him to show me how to create these masterpieces and he generously offered, however I never was able to make it out to Elizabeth, CO. 

 

Fast forward to my post Navy days and here I am with a little extra cash so I decided to try it out myself. After a couple YouTube videos and several phone calls to Garret, I sourced some slabs from the local Amish mills, built me a mold and poured the epoxy, flattened and finished a small 2’ by 6’ table top. It was a small project but came out successful. It was a garage beginning with a few more projects, testing out different epoxies and coloring techniques to include encapsulating objects, not all were successful but I learned a lot along the way. There was a high demand for this functional art. People were wanting custom tables and charcuterie boards so I needed to expand my operation. I invested in a 5’x10’ CNC machine and that was when I took the step to really dive in and start my new passion. 

 

IVRivertables is located in Calloway, Maryland in a small humble commercial space large enough to produce tables up to 11’x4’. Come check us out!
