Great slab! I have made several live edge pieces and used MirrorCoat to fill voids. You can see into them and they are filled smooth with the top. After curing, I just belt sand smooth and then sand the whole top ready for finish. System Three advised that I wait at least 5 days to spray lacquer onto the surface after cure. I also had trouble with the material running through the bottom and have a call in to System Three for advice on sealing the bottom. It eats right through tape and even squeezed past clay stuffed into the bottom of voids.

As for a durable finish. You could use Spar varnish or MirrorCoat for the top. I use a two part conversion varnish from ML Campbell called KlearVar but if you don’t have spray capability better to go with either of the two former products.
