Awesome question! We like to reinforce the natural wood slabs and pieces with steel, so they won't warp, but be sure to seal the underside with a sealer like polyurethane. When you epoxy the surface as well as treat the underside of your project this will encapsulate the workpiece and help to prevent warping and movement caused by moisture. We like our moisture content under 13% in our wood projects before coating.
Have a great day and give us a call for free project support!
