I am making a potato/onion bin out of knotty pine. What
kind of finish would you use inside the bin, if any?
Should I seal it with something like polyurathane so the
potato juices don't get into the wood, or does that matter?
Fire up your 1" forstner bit and drill lots of holes to insure air
I'd include a false bottom full of holes to insure air circulation
Couple of coats of poly and your good to go.
BTW, make sure you don't try to keep onions and taters next to each
Go to Home Depot and take a look at the coated wire baskets use in
closet storage systems.
Consider using the baskets to hold taters, maple side rails, to allow
baskets to slide in/out, attached to pine box.
Again, 3-4 coats of poly on the K/P, wax on the maple.
Whatsoever thou doest unto one side of a board, thou shalt do unto the
other. This is the first and greatest commandment. Otherwise thy
board, being differentially treated, shall warp when the humidity
changes, causing all manner of evil.
