Topic tags/keywords: finishing painting question

I am in home stretch of finishing my tablesaw table/outfeed table and I wanted to paint it a matte black afterwards. The top is made 3/4” Sanded Pine Plywood. I have noticed when I sanded it down that there are a ton of cracks throughout the piece. I know this is normal but I did some research on how to fill these voids, the best solution that I found was a brush on Sanding Sealer.

I have seen that you can use it as a base coat for poly finishes or any other finishes, but I want to use a spray on Krylon Matte Black paint.

Any tips, tricks, do’s or don’ts would be much appreciated, Thanks!

I think the solution you have found it about the best you can do….except

I put a layer of tempered masonite on mine, just fastened with 18 gauge finishing nails (pre-drill the masonite). That way when it starts looking beat up I can easily replace it.

Another idea would to be to put a layer of formica on it (black of course).
