Yes, the table is all from scratch. I bought an old table several years ago just for the slate. Paid $300 for the whole table then. Threw everything else away and built new. Not sure if you can see the rails, but I inlayed 1" deer tracks for the markings. I made the rails from left over logs from our front porch.
The entire bar and pool table are finished with 4 coats of sprayed lacquer. The very top of the bar, which I assume you are interested in is a poured epoxy. Pretty easy to do, just messy. Make sure anything under and around the part is covered unless you want it epoxied too. I used Kleer Koat from US Composites. Here is a link to their site.
