I’m finishing a fly tying table for my dad, and I need a sealant (top coat) that will resist fly head cement or crazy glue.

Any recommendations.

I used a mixture of BLO/Beeswax/turpentine on my assembly table, and Urea Formadehyde glue pops right off, I’m thinking crazy glue will as well; the beeswax component really prevents adhesion. It’s also easy to renew. More info here, but I’ll use MS next time instead of the turp to reduce the odor greatly, had to air out my shop for 2 days.

My fly tying table is topcoated with WB poly (Target 9000) and gets waxed occassionally. No problems with super glue sticking

Poly would be better than lacquer as most tying cement is lacquer. Wax it well and tell him to wax it periodically.

Get a sheet of laminate that you can scrape the glue off.

Go cheap, put a piece of waxed paper down. Use once or twice and toss.
