As the old saying goes, "you can't get there from here".
That's why desk protectors exist.
Sooner or later, a ball point pen will engrave that beautiful wood
desk top, if you don't use one.
Seal it with 3-5 coats of epoxy, allowing 2-3 days between coats
before sanding lightly with 100 grit, then seal with some final coats
Wait 2-3 weeks to place in service complete with a desk protector.
Been to the movie, don't need the T-Shirt.
