Best finish for wood veneer snowboard1/22
I have purchased a snowboard that was a failed manufacturing experiment. The topsheet (top of the board) is a nice walnut veneer that is saturated with epoxy and then pressed to the board core. On this board, they were trying a new gloss finish and it was a failure. I don't know what they used. My plan is to sand down to epoxy layer and refinish. My question is: what should I finish with? I'd like a clear satin finish - but it needs to be extremely durable and withstand flex, vibration and extreme cold.
Thank you in advance for any guidance.
West Marine epoxy should do the trick.
My son and I build a few skis just for our own use. I have seen some nice wall hanger skis with a high gloss marine finish. They look good till they get a few scratches.
We use Osmo on the ones we build. Usually apply it once or twice a year. Its low luster and close to the wood and does not show scratches or dings much. We sometimes use a Sirca wax effect finish on doors and windows and think that would be good in this application also. Hard to describe, its sort of a water base oil finish.
Building, we coat the veneer top sheet with epoxy before pressing just to get good saturation then sand it back to the wood for finishing after.
Might won't to try 2k exterior eurothane.
