My table top is coming along slowly. I removed the bark on the outside using a wire wheel on a grinder, after getting as much off as I could with a sharpened putty knife. This is a crotch piece of wood and it has a bark vein (no idea what the official name is) running for quite a way. Do I gouge this out, or just leave it.
The slab is the one on the left in this thread.
I want to do what is best for the table top, and I remember reading somewhere that you need to remove all the bark because of the dirt and nastiness trapped in it.
I was reading that an epoxy top is not as solid a finish as lacquer or poly. Is this true? If so can you put poly or lacquer on top of epoxy?
