Do you have beautiful authentic wood with, for example, nice grains or knots? Then protect the wood well by casting off the top with epoxy casting resin.

You can also fill the gaps, for example, with Glow in the Dark Epoxy for an even more unique effect. This method is also good to perform if the surface is not flat.
