OnlyGenusCaps Posted February 15, 2022 Share Posted February 15, 2022 I feel a bit like I am turning this into the handyman's forum Sorry about that. But, I am seeking some opinions because I know there are folks much better versed in woodworking (I say I'm making a cherry bookcase or something) than I am. Here is what's happening. I have 1/8" plywood, of some sort, that I am attaching to a frame to obscure the sump under a tank. The pieces I have up are warping a bit. My basement is like 20%RH right now and in the summer it will be above 70%RH. Plus, once the tank is running there will be the gradient in humidity from the sump under the tank, to the outside air. I think if I am going to have any chance of preventing this wood from looking like a book that was dried after falling in a puddle, I am going to have to coat it in something. Now, I have time. I can really only do this in my garage, and it's going to be a few weeks here until it is warm enough to work with anything like that. Still, I'd like to have a plan. My first thought was to use a water based polyurethane. But, I am starting to wonder if a spray on acrylic wouldn't work better. Does any one have any suggestions about what I should use to keep the moisture from warping the wood? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
