This is the coffee table i made for my home. Its made with birdseye maple, bolivian rosewood and hickory, and i got two boys, a 3 year old and a 2 year old. They are rough on furniture in a “I cant believe you actually broke that” kinda way and i dont want them destroying this nice wood. Well after i finished this birdseye maple and rosewood top with polyurethane it got a couple dings and i could see where things were headed.
I wound up putting bartop epoxy on the top. That type of finish is ok but i prefer a polyurethane finish but this epoxy should hold up to alot of abuse and later on when the kids grow up some i will take this finish off and put poly on. You can actually use a hand plane on this stuff pretty well so a nice sharp jack plane is probably how i will remove the epoxy. If anybody has a better suggestion for removing epoxy finish i would like to hear them. Thanks for viewing, Andy.
