    Wood finish

    I put up 15/32 sheathing in my garage to allow for flexibility of shelf placement and for ease of removal vs Sheetrock. I'm looking to smooth out the surface a bit and seal it as well. Not too interested in sanding much, just want to coat the ply with a product that would cut down on the splinter quotient. What would you suggest? I was thinking polyurethane, but will that yellow with time?

      Sorry Dan. I got nothing.
      I'm a big fan of 1/4" pegboard for the garage.
      Shelf brackets screwed to the studs and plenty of space for hanging shit up and forgetting I have it for 20 years.

        I say poly, but it will probably yellow over time.

          What about a poly stain?

            No finish will take care of the "splinter factor" unless you paint, and paint, and paint and paint.
            I suggest slot wall. Sheets are expensive, but it's very sturdy and you can hang lots of stuff on it.
            It's also a melamine product and the face is very smooth.

              Epoxy paint? Though I'm not a big fan of wood in a garage.

                I had slotwall in my last garage and loved it. Gave a clean appearance and was very versatile, however, it was not very sturdy for heavy hanging things. I had a few blowouts with it.

                  I think code says you have to have 5/8ths fire rock on garage walls. My neighbor got tagged in an inspection. Plywood is too combustible.

                    I think the 5/8 rock is only if the garage is attached to the house.

                      What about the paint to restore decks? It should stick to it and help with splinters
