    Please note: I'm never Mister and most definitely NEVER Sir just Ron to everyone from my great granddaughter on up. Thank you so much at a time when I was concerned senility had set in and I'd become the laughing stock of this site and others.
    Toodleoo!

    For anyone who replied to this:

    For your info, we nixed the shiny floor but still had to have mirror-shine walls. [​IMG] ended up using Rosebrand's black metallic vinyl rolls like wallpaper. Great look for little money. Lesson learned to share: don't use spray adhesive on luan. With our southern humidity swings, the vinyl started bubbling and wrinkling over the course of our month run. I would go with a heavier-duty roll-on adhesive and apply over a tempered masonite to keep moisture from wicking through the wall surface.

    Sealing Luan is ALWAYS a good Idea. A cheap and easy way is to use 4# < that's a pound sign not a hashtag, young'uns> shellac. It will lock in the oils that are often present in exotic woods.
    Thanks for reporting back in! Glad you found a good solution!


    P.S. It also works well for sealing Sap Knots or Veins in Pine and fir.
