Topic tags/keywords: finishing

I’m looking at making a few cabinets for my house and I was wondering what experience anyone here has had with Bin Primer. I like it because I can easily spray with my Earlex and it dries super fast (more coats in a day).

I was thinking of maybe even just using it as a white ‘paint’ and just shooting a clear water based urethane over top.

Thoughts?

I use and love BIN.
If you decide to clearocat it, make sure it’s compatible with the finish.

NiteWalker,

I was thinking since this is a shellac based primer that a water based clear should work ok.

I tried it under crystalac gloss black and it peeled right off.

A quick test with your waterbased finish would answer any concerns though.

Why not plain old shellac? Sparys well, dries fast. Zinsser Seal Coat is what I use most unless there is a need to fill grain.

+1 on sealcoat.
I use it on every project I build to bring out the color and grain in the wood, sometimes tinted with transtint dyes.

I absolutely love Zinsser Seal Coat, spray it right out of the can. I was thinking that would probably be the best topcoat. I love how it makes the grain come alive and dries quickly so i can get several coats on in a day.

I’ll post pics as I progress.
