    Not only do I doubt you can get all the old paint and wood oxidation off, I don't think you can buy a clear coat finish that will last even a year.

    Of course, you will have to plane the wood after it dries. You need to figure on the expense of the planer and the labor to do that.

    The pre-made counter top will move in exactly the same way as one you would build yourself. It is a property of wood, not the result of a build technique.

    I would only like it if they also provide a "Dislike" button. Having only a "Like" button leaves off half the possible information a reader can provide.

    I used a Ridgid model 3650 with a dado blade for probably 15 years. I made beehive boxes on a regular basis which required a 3/4" cut. The saw has plenty of power and the arbor is plenty strong. You...

    I have used it for filler. The epoxy is much harder than the wood and that makes it difficult to sand flush. I always get a little mound of epoxy.

    Only you can decide whether the limitations of this tool are outweighed by its convenient size. I would find such a tool mostly useless but that is because of the kind of work I do.

    I agree with John TenEyck. If you try to sink them deeper, you are likely to create larger and more conspicuous dents. By the time you finish the piece, the pins will be hard to see anyway.

    It looks to me like you are dealing with custom parts for which there is no manufactured source. If that is true, could you possibly have them made by someone with a 3-D printer?
