Would you put a finish on the inside of a shop cabinet or not?

Sometimes I don’t finish the outside, so to answer your question, no.

If I finish it, I was just thinking about some poly to protect it. Keep it a light color for a brighter look and easier to see whats in there. hahaha

Reasons to finish the inside of a shop cabinet:

Because you can.

Experiment with a technique/material you haven’t used or want to get better using.

Use up something from the finishing cabinet because you just can’t bring yourself to throw it out.

Protection of the surface.

Combinations of the above.

I finish all of my shop cabinets and furniture inside and out….Usually about 2-3 coats of Tung oil will do it…
