Our '93 Scamp
has a well worn original table. We plan to:
1. Replace it with a plywood table
2. Epoxy a vintage map onto the top
The original table appears to be 5/8" thick. No such hardwood ply is available to me locally. But, 1/2" hardwood ply is available, and the epoxy folks advertise that it adds 1/8" thickness - making 1/2" ply into a suitable 5/8" replacement.
1. Any thoughts on the suitability of 1/2" ply as not only table top, but bed? Will that be strong enough? Will the epoxy add strength? I could add a couple of lateral strips on the bottom in order to add lateral strength. But do I need to?
2. Epoxy: Have you had a great experience with epoxy that you could point me to? Any suggestions at all?
