Hi

In LLVJ_16 Intro Gallery a "flat file system" is mentioned.

I'll want to install some "flat file storage" myself, but it's quite impossible to get a "flat file system" to the wanted place and it's quite expensive anyway.

I could build one in place, but then it would be wood (probably osb).  This will outgas, but the most in the first weeks/month's.  I have time to let it outgas a month.
I'll need to add some type of finish (maybe paint), to get it "smooth" and "clean".

Are there recommendations on materials and/or finish?

Does it have to have functioning drawers?  Melamine might work.  It's the white stuff they use in closets laminated on particle board.  Here's a link with several types of laminate:

I have no idea if any of this stuff off-gasses anything harmful to prints, and as Henry pointed out in the wonderful video, no one knows what hasn't been measured.  But I don't think the break-down chemistry produces oxidizers. An open front with perhaps a nice roll-shade to keep out light would eliminate the space required for opening drawers and/or cabinet doors while increasing the air circulation inside each compartment.
