I put up some 1/4” underlayment on the walls of my shop for paneling.Some type of imported hardwood. I trimmed them with some mahogany chair rail I scooped off of craigs list for cheap. It really looks nice so I would like to puy a decent finish on it. I was thinking sanding sealer with a roller or foam pad to put it on.. Any ideas on something better? Thanks

I would think anything that would give you a good hard finish to seal the surface so that the dust is more easily cleaned off would be a great idea.

Sanding sealer I would think would look more natural/flat uncoated look if that’s what you’re trying to achieve. I was reading somewhere there is a waterborne urethane made that will give an untreated look yet really offers a hard finish with less odor but can’t remember what company offered it.

Sounds like you are really putting togeather a real eye catcher of of a shop.
