I'm building a Bonsai display table that will be kept outdoors.
I'm planning to put on a coat of System three epoxy followed by a 2 or 3 coats of their varnish.
The top is 15 inches wide and about 5 feet long.

Is the epoxy a good idea or should I just use the varnish?

Thank you,
Mike

An article in FWW several years ago concluded that epoxy sealer followed by Epifanes Marine varnish had the longest durability of the products they tested.  I would do as you propose.
