That's Oak, most likely Red oak as it is more widely available.

How easy is it to remove to work on?

Start with a good wood stripper. Go to lowes, menards, home depot(whatever you have). Get something designed for furniture.

As you are sanding save the saw dust to make wood filler..a 220 finish sanding should take the crap off & down to a clean wood...use the dust & clear wood glue to make the puddy fill holes ...sand with 400 paper then finish to what ever color you like....then pour the super glaze...its like cold plastic...

Do note that the Pour epoxies must have a lip to keep it from running off the sides, and the piece must be perfectly level.

Tape can be used, but if the tape bond fails, then you just made a big mess and have wasted product, and have to re do it. I have had little luck with the bartop pour epoxies and always wound up having to sand them flat and then polish them and have refused all future jobs in this realm.

Bartop epoxy also does not like UV light and will turn chalky if exposed to a lot of sunlight.

The darker spots on oak are very porous and sucks up a lot of stain deep into the wood. Even if you sand it, they will remain dark, so restaining and blending becomes necessary.

In your case I might just soak a Scotch brite pad with acetone or laquer thinner to remove the gummy exterior then use a polyurethane to refinish it with either a gloss/ semigloss or satin finish, whatever floats your boat.

It is really all up to how much effort you wish to expend on it.

Cover the screws and you can never remove them, I always use decorative screws, so they add to the look.

The stuff used on boat wood is best, stands up to the UV rays, looks great too.

Note that Big box stores carry spar varnishes that are only slightly more uv resistant then regular polyurethane.

Among the best products for wood on boats is Epifanes varnishes.


$$$ though.

How concerned with UV protection should i be using it on the dash and interior panels of a van with tinted windows that sits in the shade 80% of the day? Will it fade real bad?
