Epoxy or poly finish
So I'm in the final stages of completing my bar and now I'm searching for a finish for the bar top. It's come down to two choices, but I'm definitly open to suggestions if you have any. Multiple layers of poly, or an epoxy flood type finish.
I think i want to go with the epoxy flood, but I have some concerns that a thick epoxy layer would prevent any movement that the bar top would incur due to changes in the seasons(its a garage bar so sort of exposed to the outdoors).
The bar top itself will either be a top layer of hardwood plywood, probably red oak, or T&G joined hardwood flooring. Both being attached to a plywood substrate.
Any suggestions would be great Thanks!,
