« Part 1: Base Part 2 of Table Saw Workstation series no next part

So I decided on the type of wood I would skin the outside with; the sides, front and back is Lauan plywood (1/4”) and the area where the where the saw will sit is skinned with birch plywood. I sanded them up to 220 grit sand paper. Taking very careful passing ensure I didn’t burn through the veneer. I put 1 coat of De-waxed shellac cut to 1 lb, lightly sanded with 320, then put on the first coat of WATCO Danish Oil. I like how the redness of the Lauan came out and thinking it will look nice with drawer/door fronts of Birch Plywood.
