I stripped an old organ, which I think is cherry or alder, and am going to install a top where the keyboard was, thus making a small desk. I have some cherry tongue and groove left over and was thinking of covering the t&g with a thin layer of epoxy, then varnishing over that. Will that be tough enough for a writing surface? Too much sanding to get smooth? Should I just remove the tongues/grooves and glue strips together and varnish that? Or, plan on setting a sheet of thin glass on top? Or….? Am not really interested in a fake wood veneer if I can avoid it. Thanks for info. john
