I am building a flip top planer stand and have a finishing question. The panels will be ACX plywood that I will paint with a hammered green finish. The edge banding will be maple that I want to finish in clear poly. Is it best to apply the poly first and then do the painting, or should I paint first? I was thinking poly first would be the best because then any misplaced primer or paint would wipe off easier. Any thoughts?
