Hadn’t thought about it. Some finishes( not plastic) absorb water. If you are making it with spalted wood you have another factor…the wood, mold issues?

I often use a magazine LOL and my wife hands me a coaster….(purchased) Protects the table. Non plastic finish.

I’m thinking if it’s spalted wood …use a low matte finish urathane? I’d run a few test projects.

Another thought…wondering about time, labor, and materials….and your profit line, as I’m thinking you will sell these?
