Bar Countertop

I am searching for this product I have seen used on bars. I am making a bar and I want the counter top to be like theirs. the product uses seems to be a liquid solution that is poured onto the counter top over things like rocks or coins and it dries to a hard clear flat finish. does anybody know what this stuff is and where I can find it??

kap148, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
I believe what you are looking for is called "Resin Pour". I have not used it but if you go to the carpentry forum under a thread called "Building a bar" it is discussed. Check with your local Home Improvement store. Good luck.

Home Depot carries in in the paint aisle. Just bought some about a week ago. The stuff in our local store is called Glaze Coat by Famowood (www.famowood.com). Think it was about $16 for the 32 oz kit that covers 9 sq ft. You can also find it at most large craft stores; the one I've used on previous projects was called Envirotex (or that might have been the manufacturer). Suggest you practice on some small test pieces to see how it works; it can be a little tricky and there are some tricks top getting the bst finish.

bar top varnish

There are two products that we usually recommend to our customers.
One a " bar top varnish / or Marine Varnish " both available
at hardware or marine stores.

The thick stuff you are referring to, was used quite a bit
in the 1970s on top of old boat hatch cover doors.
VERY thick
EPOXY
Should easily be able to find this at any good hardware store.
HINT: do NOT shake the can , as you will get bubbles in the finished
product

good luck

This thread is 6 years old. Hopefully the op has finished his project by now.
