What about the same stuff everyone recommends for sealing MDF. Zinsser BIN, IIRC. It's a shellac based coating. I think it's recommended for MDF because it doesn't cause it to swell.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

That sounds fine to me. I just don't know what the calculus is - why that over something else?

I used General Finishes underbody primer my MDF and trim. It has a high solids content and sands smooth as silk with 400 grit 3m frecut.

On plywood I actually mixed West System epoxy and added their filler (forget which one.. it was kinda pink), and that didn't sand anywhere as easy as the GF finish.. but was tough as nails. I did my piano black finish on top of it.

GF can be sourced from Jeff at homestead refinishing. Good guy; hookd me up on some discontinued stuff.

I have a source for General Finishes here in ATL. I have dallied about. I have a coat of sanding sealer on one side of the door that needs sanding this weekend - after I get new shocks and struts in my car - after I change the oil - after I watch football...

Thanks for the knowledge.
