Collective design: The fragments of wood with elements of resin is the rudiments. Shapes such as round, rectangular, hexagon, with sharp or live edges are obtained. The natural structure of wood could be enhanced by the craftsman skills including woodcarving and milling. To create a countertop, a container with bumpers of the required height is used, workpieces are laid out in it, then it is completely filled with a resin composition. The countertops unique pattern is created by arranging the wood in any manner and filling the resin composition with color options.
The experts from Craftica utilize varieties of glue to derive matte or transparent finish by adding assortments of color and shade Transparent finish is recommended when there is a need to emphasize all the details like array fibers, inscriptions or badges on metal elements.

It should be noted that the mixtures are beautifully stained with gouache, ink, oil paints, and these components do not harm human health. For partitions, thin plastic barriers could be usedand the top of the whole composition is filled with a thin transparent layer.
