stickers on wood and laquer

7 posts in this topic

I know you can't laquer over stickers on wood, but can you use something else 1st to seal the sticker on the wood and then laquer over it and the rest of the piece of wood? Any advice would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks

THe clear epoxy would work. I think yoiu could get by with just putting several coats of sanding sealer or varnish over them would work too.

Have you tested for a reaction yet.

I used it on a bartop when i built a bar for my neighbor.

He put playing cards and some small fishing flies,photos and some poker chips on it.I used tongue and groove cedar for the bar top,spray adhesive to attach items to the bar,and used the pour on for the final surface. I had to use 2 coats of the pour on to cover everything so surface was smooth.After all was finished,surface is about 1/4 " thick.The bar was finished about 2-3 years ago and no reaction and has held up extremely well.last winter I went over to buff out some scratches and looks like new again. the bar is 36"x96" and took 2 container of the epoxy to do the job( 1 for each coat).thw nice part is it is self leveling so you are guaranteed to have a level surface as long as it is fairly close to begin with.

I'm making bean bag boards so would this work for them? I have the stickers on the wood already and hope to find something to seal them on so I can lacquer over the rest of the boards. Can I get this epoxy and just do that and forget about everything else? Thanks for the advice. Never done this before. Learning as I go.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
