    Shed / workshop cladding

    Sounds like OSB is the strongest solution. Guess i'll need to suck up the cost - no point in cutting corners. Noted on battons, weatherproof membrane, etc. This was in the plan so good to hear confirmation. Thanks all.

    Yeah, i'm sure the little darlings will make my lovely work look very tired in short order! Will investigate that Le Tonkinois stuff - how easy is it to matt? A glossy work bench will look weird!

    How do I treat a kids workbench that will be kept outside?

    How do I treat a kids workbench that will be kept outside?
