Recreating the Famous Yosemite Falls with EcoPoxy

You might have seen our bio-based epoxies and color pigments used to create river tables, but have you ever seen a spiral waterfall staircase?

When we came across this project on social media, we knew there was an exciting story to be shared. We reached out to David from WoodLab Co to tell us more about the most complex project he had ever attempted.

The spiral staircase project began as an effort to commemorate a wedding that occurred in 2020, with the intent to look like a flowing river. Since the stairs would be adjacent to a huge window, the stair treads needed powerful LEDs to give the proper effect even in bright daylight sun. David brought in Mike Hofer, an expert in complex lighting projects, to create the flowing water illusion. In the end, the solution was a brand-new lighting technology that had not yet hit the market. The result? What we believe to be the first internally lit spiralling cascading walnut staircase in the world.

David has been working with EcoPoxy products for more than five years. In that time, he has seen the demand for custom-made furniture grow in Idaho so much that he has been able to take his passion on as a full-time job.

David has found that more and more people appreciate the sustainable concept and the epoxy’s ability to fill in little imperfections to enhance the underlying beauty of natural wood. With color pigments, the world of custom furniture also gained a new design-centric element, leading David and his team to engage in projects with numerous designers.

"Challenge yourselves to go further. Think outside the box."

David's advice was, “Challenge yourselves to go further. Think outside the box.” In his experience, David’s seen a considerable migration of people return to local makers to buy sustainable products after experiencing interrupted supply chains. If you look for locally sourced makers, you will be glad you did.
