Many people use a traditional workbench finish: a couple of coats of oil (usually BLO or tung oil), but you'll be better off if you use varnish. The Bull's Eye works fine. I use it on all mdf before painting to avoid any bleed thru and for a better finish. You could have just left it. You can use an oil-based filling primer or PVA glue to seal the edges of your MDF workspace. Instead of them, you also can use drywall compound. TEAMVIEWER VS SUPREMO

Gwerner Posts: They call me George Took 12 coats, but each coat dries quickly. I finished up with a coat of wax and buffed it out. It really toughened up the surface and water beads up on it like a freshly waxed car. And then paste wax from time to time. I Spray mine with Deft Semi-gloss Lacquer. A couple of coats and glue scrapes off easy. Sparktrician Posts: I use Butchers Bowling Alley Wax.
Peter Parfitt recommends Osmo PolyX. The capacity for occasional blundering is inseparable from the capacity to bring things to pass. Bert Vanderveen Posts: Linseed oil with some natural turpentine and a bit of accellerant hardener mixed in. Even smells nice :. You've already done the hole boring, so I'd stay away from polyurethane or heavier coatings that could drip into and affect usability of the holes.
Tinker Posts: I use 2 or more coats of wipe on poly and then paste wax. Periodic applications of the wax, especially before an extensive glue project. I did get some glue into a couple of holes that had to be carefully chiseled out and sanded smooth.
I then added several applications of the paste wax to all of the holes and the problem has not reoccurred since. Any glue that does find its way onto the surface is very easily remove with even a fingernail. Anything that is stiff would work for removal and no damage to the table top. Did you use oil or water based poly -- and does it make a difference given MDFs high absorption and tendency to warp when wet? Quote from: Tinker on July 11, , AM. Brent Taylor Posts: You may not need to do the spit coat, but I find it seals it better and the Gulf of Mexico is across the street so I need to seal everything.
WastedP Posts: Would it be crazy to recommend putting down a sheet of cheap laminate prior to boring the holes? The Wilsonart distributor in Washington used to sell "B" and "C" grade sheets for about a dollar per sf. These would have cosmetic blemishes, but nothing that would keep you from using it for a work surface.
I see full sheets of laminate at the building salvage stores for lower prices than that. It works as a sealer. The more coats i put on, the better the seal. I think the wax just gave it better chance against glue sticking to it. I just add a little wax now and tun and especially if i expect a lot of glue drip. Matthewajones Posts: Learn more.

Wax is great for shrugging off glue but in thin layers is doesn't do much against water. The beading on the surface that you can get is misleading, it's actually very poor at resisting the penetration of water.
