You could get it at woodcraft or at one of those box stores in a gallon. They sell kits.
The one you showed would be good for small things.
What do you want epoxy for?

Don't have a set of chisels and not a clue how to carve. At least an actual shape like a bird or something I think here in a minute I'm going to drag an extension cord out to the shop and work in there. Btw never told ya I got it cleaned out and kind of organized in there so I have an eight foot by four foot space to work in now instead of my porch haha

I messed with all of that crap. The bar finishes and all of that other garbage.Stain it, spray it and put a glass top over it. Problem solved.No reason to "plasticize" the legs and feet.

Google "pour-on epoxy" and you will find lots of choices. Most big boxes and real paint store carries it. I have found that the brand is not important. But, following the directions is essential for a good outcome.

You're thinking epoxy glue. It's epoxy finish. That's a different critter. Sherwin Williams makes a good epoxy coating.
I like their other coatings so I would try them. They probably also focus solely on epoxy as a coating.

I have used System Three general purpose resin. They have several pre-formulated mixtures for different purposes. They have a book to explain how to select a product and how to formulate with the general purpose resin. It is free to download and a it is what I used to learn about the epoxies for finishing and as an adhesive.
