I’m making a crokinole board that has a plain birch playing surface and outer rail that match. I’ve already covered the playing surface which is still separate with a waterbased polyacrylic. Now for the base; I’ve dyed the base dark with an aniline dye which is also waterbased. Then I’ve glued the natural birtch rail around that and I plan to clear coat both of them together however I’m worried that the dye will run into the natural birch when hit with the waterbased clear.
One way to solve this would be to use an oil based poly instead however I worry that it will yellow on the rails and look different than the clear playing surface (deck).
I also know another option is to use a shellac as a sealer over the dye.
So I’m just wondering which would be the best route to go here and perhaps there is something that I haven’t considered then please let me know. Thanks.
