Hi to All,
I’m planning to rebuild a walk in closet/wardrobe. I plan to build boxes out of 3/4 inch Birch plywood and attached rods/shelves and make drawers where needed. (sample pic attached) These boxes will be floor based and will be attached to the walls as well.
I will attach maple banding over the open edges of plywood.
My question – Im trying to find the safest sealer coat (i do not plan to stain the plywood as i like the light color of birch) to protect it. I do not want to pain it. Also i would use the same sealer to finish the inside of the drawers.
So the sealer coat needs to be odor free and safe for clothing and odorless given it will be in bedroom. Also should be easy to apply. I dont have a spray gun.
Few options i have found are water based finishes and shellac such as:
1. dewaxed shellac
2. Zinsser Bulls Eye® SealCoat™
3. Bulls Eye® Shellac-Clear
4. Vermont Natural Coatings Interior Floor and Furniture Finishes
5. general finishes waterborne acrylic finish
6. Bioshield Aqua Resin Floor Finish
7. AFM Safecoat Polyureseal BP
8. AFM SafeCoat, Acrylacq
10. OSMO Polyx-Oil
Please help in choosing the right sealer!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
