I have a steam kit and I’m making a box for it. The box measures 47.5”x18” x8” and is made with a couple of half inch panels from an old nicely made entertainment center 1/2 inch particle board with rosewood veneer and the sides and ends with 4/4 oak.
The box needs to be absolutely sealed against moisture infiltration to the wood.
I am using Spar now on all interior surfaces.
Question. Is spar okay to use, and if so how many coats should I use?
I know some of you are going to suggest marine sealer, but is that really needed as long as you account for water drainage and don’t let it sit with water in it?
