A friend of mine had an old nautical chart of Cohasset Harbor mounted to a piece of wood. It used to have a lobster glued onto it, however, when the lobster broke the chart was left with chunks of epoxy all over it. Since this piece held sentimental value for my friend, I agreed to remove the epoxy and resurface the clear coat. Here are the results.

One step that I forgot to take a picture of was removing all traces of dust particles from the surface. I used a tack cloth to do this. Also the sand marks may show through after the first coat but if you do 2 or 3 coats it should be perfect. Just make sure to sand with 320 between coats and use tape or tack cloth to get dust off. A paper towel will not cut it.
