They came out great!

It really looks GOOD!
For practical reasons I would paint the Masonite on both sides to seal it and also paint the Luan as the sealer has a tendency to reduce the number of slivers you can get.
Also it does look nicer and finished.
I would prefer to use a sealer such as a sheetrock sealer as it penetrates the surface and seals better.
As previously mentioned you may also wish to make a small cut-out in the segment that has no cut-outs on the two inner circles. Purpose is to put a C-or spring clamp from the top. I would think a 4" opening near the two flanges on the inner most circle would do it.
A great concept Scott.
Good point about the painting to reduce splinters. But I'm going to get splinters while painting.Tought decision. Its a lot of work to paint it.
Let me think some more.
Other question...what color? Flat black? White? Gray? Clear?
Scott, I like the furniture-quality appearance of the modules. Perhaps a medium or dark wood stain would be appropriate. Or use Kilz as a primer/sealer. Use your air brush to paint it so no one gets splinters! If you use the Kilz, you could actually leave it white. Would the consideration of painting regular benchwork in a neutral color pertain here? What color scenery will predominate? Would you want to shade the separate modules to reflect the main color in the different modules if they change seasons, for instance?
I’d definitely paint the sections, but I wouldn’t use pure white because it shows dirt too easily. Perhaps a nice light color or off-white?
