Here's the dilemma... Oak Collar that will be stained and then clear coated with Spar Urethane... The bottom edge will be attached to the keezer with (probably) liquid nails. Should I leave the bottom edge unfinished for better adhesion, or should I clear coat it for better resistance to moisture? TIA!

I went ahead and put polyurethane on mine. The liquid nails still sealed just fine.

Yeah, I sealed mine to protect from moisture as well.
