I made a crosscut sled from 1/2” baltic birch plywood with with oak runners. It worked great when I made it, which happened to be in the Spring when the humidity in SC is moderate. However, my shop is in my garage and my sled swells with the humidity and becomes nearly unusable.
I’m planning to set it out in the sun this Fall on a nice cool day, let it shrink back to original size, and then seal it with something that will hopefully prevent it from absorbing moisture and swelling when it becomes humid again.
My question is, what is the best thing to seal it with? Shellac? Polyurethane?
