I searched and didnt find an answer to this:
I am looking into making a wood bar countertop. It is the pass through
area, not around the sink. I plan on adding the typical large wood molding
on the edge for leaning/etc.
This piece will be 6 feet long by 18" wide...what is the best technique? I
have a table saw and other good hand tools (biscuit joiner etc) and good
My first thought is to buy maple at local supply and biscuit them together
lengthwise (sorta like a 2x4 on edge...but probably rip them in half or
thirds...so 1.5" wide by whatever depth I get by ripping the boards (inch or
so)...even 3/4" wide boards would look good I think.
Anyway, do the above and then sand to smooth...once it is installed with
molded etc, I thought to use the epoxy coating for that thick hard look and
make it safer for drink water rings etc.
Thoughts or other options to construct? I have seen edge grain or same as
above but width (18" long boards....joined side by side to get 6')
