Blackie,

Stellar job on the work bench…It looks a lot like mine, except for the cabinet system I build for underneath…I see you used MDF for the top….I would suggest putting about 4-6 coats of poly on it, as that will help “wick” away any moisture you might get on the top…Things spilled, like glue, etc. will wipe right off, plus it gives the top a nice light brown petina…..Just a suggestion….You’ve done a great job on the whole re-build of your shop…I’m impressed…..

Randy,

Nice! I commented on your project page about the bench. Now I see your solution.

I use Rick’s solution for my MDF projects, and plywood that’s not cabinet grade. Two coats of seal coat sink into the material and waterborne poly seals the surface.

As I said it’s looking like a model shop, and it’s going to be hard to get it dirty. LOL!

Pretty straight forward solution on the outfeed table. I have a Grizzly cabinet saw and I want to come up with an efficient and non permanent outfeed table.

Hey Tom,

Thanks for the nice comment on my solution for MDF….Actually, I was thinking about it, and I left out an important step…..After the bench is built , I apply 2 coats of Watco Danish Oil (clear) before applying the poly….The danish oil will soak into the top , give it a nice petina, and when rubbed in and dry, then the poly…...

Rick,

Just saw your response.

The “Danish Oil” is a formulation combining oil and hardeners ( such as polyurathane, and I believe the shellac? might be wrong here) I would use it to enhance grain in woods. I think the sealer is cheaper? LOL!

Happy Dad’s day to all.

You have certainly come a long way these past weeks. It’s been a joy to follow along with you. I’m not even tired from seeing all the work you’ve done. :)
