Birch Ply: the internet has no answers for me!
I am cladding the interior of my home music studio/office in some beautiful sanded birch plywood. It was half the price of drywall and is absolutely beautiful (I have absolutely no interest in learning how to mud walls). I am trying to figure out the best/most cost effective way to finish 52 4’x8′ birch boards in a way that I can finish at least 3 a day before installing when the rest of the work is done.
I either satin or matte finish and as close to the original color as possible. I live in a humid climate as well if that matters. Basically just want to protect the wood but leave it be beyond that for a Scandinavian cabin look.
The internet has not been helpful at all so far. I’m trying brush laquer and sealcoat on a test board but it’s not forgiving and will take a long time. Any ideas? Tips?
