Plywood shelving unit
I have a project coming up for my daughter in-law.
She has a walk in closet and wants large standing shelving units on three of the four walls.
They don't want fine furniture, just something decent looking to put clothes and shoes on etc.
I plan on using cabinet grade birch plywood for the whole project.....Uprights and adjustable shelves.
I know I have several options for edge banding or facing the plywood, but
was wondering if anyone ever just filled the edge of the ply with a wood filler and tried staining over it?
I have done this in the past on plywood edges that were to be painted, but never gave it a try with a stain.
And what would be a good finish for birch plywood. If I would apply tung oil would the oil come off onto
the clothes stored on the shelves or would it be better to use a poly or shellac type finish.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks... Dave

Donít have the best tools, don't use the best woods and projects donít always turnout perfeck.
I just feel the need to work with wood!
