Just finished glueing my stands together and need advice with finishing them. I plan to use truck bed coating for the base, top, front, and back. Do I need to prime the MDF first? How many coats of primer, and how many coats of the truck bed coating would I need to make it look nice. I also picked up 1X6 birch for the sides and need advise on stain and lacquer if needed. How many coats, what type/brand of stain and laquer work best? This is my problem area... I know nothing about finishing wood. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
