I Put some thought into that process with West System.. I love West for all sort of things, but I can not trust it to yellow after 8 or so years even under a protective layer of varnish and if I then have to remove it to start over, the sanding involved would be TORTURE... so I will stick to the old fashioned way. I get why people do the epoxy trick- it saves time and money when you are paying someone to do it. This should cost me about $100 in materials and my time which has proven so many times to be worthless LOL
