    Re: Shuffle board table

    I have stripped/refinished a couple and they were made from hard maple.

      They are mostly made of plywood and maple if I've searched the internet correctly.  
      But as far as I understand, it's more important to have a high-quality finish/coveting
      Guess you need a good varnish or smth

      cheers

        Maple would probably be my guess too...You need wood that is non porous and super hard to prevent those little rolling sand stuff from going into them.

            I wonder if epoxy would do a good job on a shuffleboard table. That's just me wondering... Propbably not.

              I used Target Coatings EM2000 in high gloss sheen, to which I added the appropriate catalyst (to harden it) and retarder (so it levelled out to a super smooth finish) as per consultation with Target's tech support.
              As an aside the tech support was supplied by Jeff Weiss, the founder and owner of Target Coatings, which IMO is the best i was going to get. Interestingly he recommended misting on a very thin coat of EM 2000 diluted 50% with distilled water as a first sealer coat, scuffing back when dry, then repeating until I had a thin even layer on which I could apply the treated topcoat.
