    Exterior stain for cabinet grade plywood.

    Which brand and type do you recommend?

    What have you used? Did it work for you?

    I just stick with minwax. Pick a color you like, and you're all set.

    If its going on the outside, I'm not sure it matters. Idk what brand we got, but its also gotten to sit forever to off gas because of stupid tiles not sticking well and trying to figure that out. But, if you're using it inside, if you're polying it after, I wouldn't worry.

    On the exterior, anything that you want. I too prefer minwax products, and you can get custom stain colors in almost any color of the rainbow. I actually use a green stain over pine plywood on the interior of most of my cages before sealing them. I'll see if I can post a pic.

    This is a cage I redid because it was poorly built by the previous owner. This shot shows the green stain fairly well. I just painted the exterior flat black, hides the imperfections in the wood pretty well. Second shot is my v. rudicollis after I added the basking platform and had it set up.
