I recently created a little counter / desk thing in my garage, and a shelf above it mounted to the wall. It was never meant to be pretty, but I do have electronics on it (my laptop on the desk often times). I realize there is going to be wood dust in my garage fairly often, and I think I can deal with that, but I feel like much of it is coming from the desk itself. It's also difficult to wipe off with a sponge or rag.
I've thought about doing a clear finish or some sort of laminate. I'm not familiar with laminates, much. I also considered a sheet or some fabric, but since my laptop (which gets quite hot) will be sitting on it, I want the vents under it to be as open as possible.
- What would you recommend I cover it with? Laminate, clear finish, something else?
- Are there different types of laminates? If so, what should I consider when purchasing one?
- Appearance is NOT important to me at all. This is a garage counter top and my garage isn't particularly pretty to begin with
I basically just want to be able to wipe it off and prevent splintering / sawdust.
Thank you much!
