Glow in the Dark Powder in Resin Adds Cool Magic to Rustic Wood Shelves

How cool are these DIY shelves? They started out as a 5-foot-long piece of cracked and knotted chestnut.

The result is three beautiful shelves with glowing resin inlay, that were the brainchild of UK jewelry designer Mat Brown.

We were running a bit short on shelving in the kitchen and wanted somewhere we could store all the preserves we’re going to make from the garden this year, so we went to the timber yard to see what they had. They had this, 155cm long piece of chestnut.

It was pretty heavily cracked and pitted, with knotholes and so on. But, I had a plan. Resin inlay. A technique traditionally used with a colour-matched epoxy to the wood, to give an “invisible” repair. I’m taking a slightly different approach.

It was different, all right. And genius!

We’ve posted about a glowing table before, but Mat’s technique was less labor intensive and more DIY friendly. Click here to see how he did it.
