    Finish for bar top?

    Hi everyone. I'm in the process of building a 34' bar and matching 12' island for a local cafe. The top is constructed of solid red oak and cherry veneer. I originally thought of epoxy for a finish, but there will be hot food served there, and epoxy and heat don't mix. What do you suggest for a finish to protect this bar? Thanks!

    Hi Shane. welcome to the forum. I'm not sure any finishes are good with heat other than oil and that doesn't give you much protection from everything else. Bhelen's Rock Hard finish has been given good reviews.
