Not sure where is the right place to post this, so I figured “Everything Else” sounded good.
I’m currently working on some coaster designs, because, well, who doesn’t want to make some coasters right? I’m making them currently out of Proofgrade plywood materials. I’m thinking that they probably need to be coated in something in order to seal them and protect from moisture, at least on the tops. I’ve got cork for the bottoms.
So my question: I’ve been searching and reading online and seen various people use spray spar eurethane, others use brush on marine spar, others use a brush on clear lacquer. I’m not really familiar with these materials / methods and was looking on some advice for the easiest and best results in coating coasters. I’ve tried using spar eurethane spray but I’m getting mixed results for evenness of coat and it takes a lot of time to spray it, wait for it to set, sand, spray another coat, rinse and repeat.
So, best way to protect coasters?
