Re: Can i paint Merbau panels?

Hello @Kp2


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's wonderful to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your questions about the round Merbau panels.


Yes, the SpecRite 600mm 26mm Round Timber Panel Merbau FJ Laminated can be painted. The same basic rules apply to painting this type of timber. 


  • Make sure to remove any tags or staples from the product.
  • Sand the round panel as thoroughly as possible.
  • Choose your primer and paint to apply.
  • Choose an ideal location where the panel will not be touched or exposed to dust debris in any manner.


Building a grinder stand sounds very interesting. Any updates you can provide while building your stand would be much appreciated. 


Here are some handy step-by-step guides.




If you need more advice or information, please let us know.
