How do I get a perfectly flat UVPoxy coating on top of a wood surface?

In order to obtain a perfectly flat and level epoxy coating, the surface under the coating also must be flat and level. Natural features in wood surfaces, such as knots, cracks, and areas with larger pores, can absorb more resin than surrounding areas. This results in indentations and low spots. If your work surface has any of these features, 2-3 seal coats may be required to fully seal the surface. Apply the first seal coat, sand with 220 grit sandpaper, and wipe down. Examine the surface carefully to confirm that all voids have been filled and the surface is flat. If this surface is not smooth, seal coat and sand again, repeating as many times as required until the surface is perfectly flat and level. Then, continue to the flood coat.
