Default "beadboard" table top?

this as a table top if I polyurethaned it. There is 1/2 inch plywood under
whatever I decide to top this with for support. It wouldn't be used for
cutting or hot materials, more just to eat at. If course the edges will be
trimmed out, etc.

TIA,



The only way I would do it is if I could use a poured finish that
would wind up level.

Too many nooks and crannies for the food to get trapped in otherwise.

Yes it is possible.

You didn't ask but, would I do it? Not on a bet!

A very good pick up. I bet it is what was meant, it makes far more sense. Of
course, in the application he describes, I still wouldn't do it but what the
heck.
