Epoxy Resin Finish on Speaker Enclosures

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has used self leveling clear epoxy resin as a final finish on speaker enclosures. What is the best way to add the finish? Would you do one side at a time upright or all sides at once? taking into consideration the epoxy moving down the sides due to gravity if you do most sides at once. I have seen videos of it done on kitchen tops/tables/coffee tables and the finish is fantastic. I know it can be brushed on, so doing all sides at once might be okay?

Ive used the stuff many times for boat stuff. I would do all the sides and top first, all at once. Then move to bottom when dry, after a light scuff with sandpaper along the bottom edges. The epoxy will seep into the scuffed up area and give you a good seam without discolouration.

Wouldnt worry about drips too much, the stuff dries pretty fast. Its a blessing and a curse in that sense. You can usually brush out any ripples (the epoxy equivalent of a drip), if you get to it within about 5 minutes.

Youll get a sense for how quickly it dries. For a box type enclosure, make sure to not let a wet edge go too long without being continued. Maybe a spiral type brushing scheme would work best if you dont feel like rushing!
