Do you have beautiful authentic wood with nice grains or knots? Then protect the wood well by casting off the top with epoxy casting resin. If you do this using corner profiles as formwork, the wood will get a very unique "floating" effect. You can also fill the gaps, for example, with Glow in the Dark Epoxy, for example, for an even more unique effect. This method is also good to perform if the surface is not flat. This occurs with rough wood or if the boards used are not the same thickness.
