look – you are in a productive woodworking – carpenter atmosphere.
THINGS GET SCRATCHED !! regardless of what finish is used.
and fluorescent lime green and black scratches the easiest of all.
brown latex house paint would be my choice. Valspar StormCoat is an excellent paint.
it is thick and will clog a lot of holes in the OSB and will make your project look great.
and in all my years of using OSB – I have never, ever seen a “scratch” on a panel.
the top surface could be 1/4” MDF with a poly finish held down with countersunk screws.
easy and cheap to replace when the time comes.
and the bigger the castor – the easier it is to roll over stuff. HF has pretty good 6” castors.

if you over think it – it will surely be over thunk.
