I'm finishing up my budget-minded, no frills workbench (an exact copy of Sam
Allen's joiner's bench), and am trying to decide how/if to finish the bench
The base is made of construction lumber (pine 4x4's and 2x4's), and the top
is a laminated MDF surface, covered with masonite. I'm wondering if I
should use oil or not on the masonite surface. I'm mainly aiming to make it
resistance to adhesives and moisture. I know I could wax it, but I was
thinking oil might work better. So, does this make any sense at all, or
will it be a waste of effort?
Thanks for your input,
