            Sorry about that. One more time That's one good looking piece of stock you have. I laminated two pieces of an old butcher block table (1 3/16") about 6 years ago, still using it today and I love it, solid, great rebound and a sweat sound. I know you're going to enjoy it. I left it natural with a light coat of Tung oil. Not sure how any Urethane would stand up to a constant bag beating. You may want to check with some of the baggers who have used a clear epoxy resin.

              Haha got there in the end...I'll probably use oil or maybe a varnish as wasn't going to go down the route of epoxy
              I got offered a solid walnut worktop 3 metres long from the same place too for around 140 dollars (
