    I was thinking this might be a great, fairly inexpensive way to get a great hardwood bar top. Anyone try this approach? If so how did you secure it to the bar top? Varnish or Poly or ???

    I used 3/4 oak on the bar top and glued each piece down. looks great. I used many coats of gun stock stain and than a lot of coats of gloss poly. After each coat of poly, wait until dry, than sanded lightly, than another coat. It came out very nice. Have fun.

    Thank you very much for the response. This is the way I am going to go for the bar top. Found 3/4″x5″ cocobolo hand scraped solid hard wood flooring at lumber liquidators. Envirotex over the top of it.
    I’ll post pics.

    Not well. Got it laid out and it just looked “off” ended up making the bar too out of 3/4″ MDF and covering it in a single sheet of patina copper. Then covered that in 1/4″ of envirotex bar top epoxy to protect it. Looks amazing. Can’t figure out how to post pics or I would.

    I was planning to use the hand scraped maple spice 5″ from Home Depot. I then was going to get a stain to match for the rest of the bar. I’m going for an Irish pub look.

    What about it looked wrong?
