Question epoxy on plywood floor?

Just joined this site and am very impressed. I want to build a 18x32 Tuffshed but not a concrete pad. Is it possible to use one of the epoxy floor coverings over a plywood floor? I really like the looks and convenience of the good looking epoxy floors I see on this site but don't know if possible w/plywood. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have no personal opinion, just passing along a couple threads I remember seeing on here.

Epoxy on wood thread:

This guy had no problems with it:

This guy did epoxy on his plywood ramp also:

I have and you can but it needs a little more attention than concrete. The seems or joints need to be patched with a flexible epoxy or membrane and use fiberglass tape almost like you are spackling sheetrock. Next you will need to use a flex resin for a primer and base coat. Then broadcast your preferred aggregate and top coat. Good luck.
