I know what your talking about. THere was a bar redone in a town I used to
live in and the bar top was done that way ...gorgous. It had differnt
denominations of money, coins, bills etc. all kind of neat stuff embedded.
Was clear on top. I'm not sure what they used. I'll ask my hubby. I believe
he was friends with the owner. Your table find sounds really cool. I love
finding treasures and redoing them.

Ok, my hand book is finished and I decided to re'tackle a table I was
working on. It wasn't working for me so I shoved it in the corner - now it's
coming together nicely. What it is is a coffee table - low, 18"x28" long.
The top originally held something (this was a dumpster find), but now has a
recessed area, just the size of dominos, checkers, etc. I have created a
design using these playing pieces and I love the way it looks, but before I
glue them down I was wondering if there is some sort of clear "filler" that
I can pour over the entire thing to make a smooth surface and fill in the
empty spaces. I don't know if I'm describing this correctly - if anyone
needs a visual I can take a picture of what I've got so far and post on my
site. I was thinking of a boat resin (???) or something along that line. Any
