I’m in the midst of building a couple of bookshelf speakers out of MDF. I’d like to to finish them with a high gloss paint, but I’m not sure how to achieve it.
Is there a ‘standard’ way to seal the MDF so that the edges don’t raise? I was thinking of using a thin coat of Bondo on them, but that seems a bit extreme what with all of the sanding that entails…
Also, I was thinking of going with a Ferrari Red with a mirror finish, but I want to do it right. I’ve got a Rockler HVLP sprayer which I have not used yet. Should I go with automotive primer and finish?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
