What sealer to use
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:53 PM »
I finally got too building a cart to hold my two MFT and 13 systainer and two CMS units.

I used Russian burch plywood and need to seal the plywood.

I am not sure what sealer to use.

So any comments would be Nice

I will post some pics of the 8 ft long 6 wheel contraption, soon.

That's a handy looking cart.  I have a similar setup - 2 MFT but one CMS.
I was trying to figure out how to store the CMS modules/parts.  That looks like a good solution.

I'm a huge fan of the baltic/Russian birch ply.  I've used OSMO Poly-x as a finish and I'm really happy with it.  Provides a nice finish and keeps water from penetrating.  I haven't tried getting glue off it yet but I'd bet it peels right off.
The other nice thing about Poly-x is you can spot repair/re-apply.
The one downside is Baltic ply tends to be yellow and Poly-x seems to enhance that... I'm not a yellowy fan.

Thanks for the reply.

I would like to see your MFT system as well.

I had to change the pullout shelf slides from 100lb slids to 220lb slides and make platform to raise the saw CMS. I needed to overlap the lags on the CMS router to fit in the distance left. I used the whole 8ft sheet.

I’ve been using MinWax Wipe-On Poly on everything from bed frames to jewelry boxes. It’s truly wipe on. I use a lint free cloth to apply. It dries flat and quickly. It’s easy to touch up.

I second that.

A hard wax finish such as Osmo or Rubio Monocoat would work well and they are easy to apply.
