Robert - call the tech rep at Bartop Epoxy and ask them all the
technical questions you may have. especially about sealing
the wood (and what to use) prior to pouring it on your irreplaceable wood.
if not sealed correctly, the bubbles from the wood will drive you NUTS
trying to get them all popped before the epoxy sets up. and any bubbles
that are in the epoxy when it cures will be there forever and ever and ever.
you also have the task of applying the epoxy to all the edges.
then - ask for referrals in your area that you may be able to go look at in person.
a side note: if the wood is good on both sides, why not have the boards
resawn in half so you could have double the amount of antique boards
for other projects around the house.
a 52sf area is a TREMENDOUS project for a novice and should be
referred to the professionals that do that for a living.
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
