Can a bar rail/chicago rail whatever be covered with this? Wouldn't it just run off the edge?
I used it over some ceramic tiles. I put it 1/8" thick and yes let it run over the edges of my wood trim that was used as a dam. I filled it and let it run over the edge, but had a defined area masked off with the blue painters tape and during the intial hour of curing used a poly brush to clean up the drips. When the dripping stopped, I removed the tape before the epoxy totally set up.
You can use the epoxy like a varnish, brush it on thick and it self levels and you get a mirror like finish thats equal to 6 plus coats of varnish. If you do it like a varnish, practice on some "finished" scrap to get an idea how it finishes out. There are tons of youtube like videos that show how-to's for finishing wood table tops.
EDIT: I actually have to do another 1/16" flood coat since my bar is "L" shaped, I couldnt get the all surfaces completely level, so where some of the epoxy flowed over, it ended up slightly short of flowing over in spots, so I need to re-level in another direction and flood coat the whole top again to get it to my anal retentive standards.
