hmm, interesting thoughts. I should better clarify the project. This will be a child’s step stool assembled with glue and screws. The primer I will be using is Zinsser 123.

So it sounds like my game plan will be to…

  1. Sand with 120 grit until the surface is flat enough
  2. Pre-prime what I can (or choose to)
  3. Assemble with glue and screws
  4. Plug/fill holes and spot sand with 120
  5. Finish priming
  6. Scuff-sand if needed
  7. Put on the finish paint
