DIY Vivarium plywood sealer?

My boyfriend and I have decided to go ahead and give all 4 girls a much deserved housing upgrade. I have been in the process of saving up for 2 double ferret nations, however my boyfriend wants to opt for a more modern look and build our own vivariums. We have all the dimensions and general draft for our vivariums, the only thing I am unsure of is how to go about sealing them. We have decided to go ahead and make them out of plywood, and seal them with a clear coat wood sealer. We may stain them prior to sealing them, we haven't quite decided yet.

I was just curious as to if anyone had any information as to what wood sealer would be appropriate and safe? I came across this one on a reptile form as I have also been looking there for an answer.


Or is there a better alternative that comes to mind?

Any information at all is helpful, pictures would also be appreciated. :smile:

Darth, did you just modify an existing structure, or make it all by hand?
