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.

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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
