Alcarol's Beautiful use of Resin Casting for Furniture

Alcarol is a design and fabrication studio which is doing amazing work with resin casting to preserve unique features in wood in stone.

Marble ways table is made by using the sacrifical table from stone cutting.  When the table bed is too marred from cutting it is replaced.  Acarol is casting these slabs into beautiful tables, preserving the natural kerf marks as well as the stone and sawdust in the process.  (via Core 77)

This video from Vimeo shows the entire process.
