Birch plywood painting help
Hi guys, building some basic birch cabs and I need the outside painted. I have edge banded the end grain (not really happy with the way it came out, but to late now). What is the best way to get a good finish? What do I need to sand to, any special primers and/or special paints? Do I sand after primer dropped, and after every paint coat? They would like a semi gloss finish, what would be best for that?
The inside will be the batter wood with a clear coat. Thinking I will poly that for durability.
Side question, is there a better way than edge banding, if it will be painted?
