Default ADA stand build

Good Morning Guys and Gals,
Iím in the initial stages of building an ADA style stand for a 90-H. [censored]Couple of questions: [censored]First, does anybody know if Jason Balaban is still active on any of these forums? With his DIY ADA stands he used Formica laminate. [censored]I plan on doing the same. [censored]In some of the photos of his handwork I canít tell whether he used a flush-bit laminate bit or a bevel-edge laminate bit. [censored]I have never seen an actual ADA store bought stand in person so I donít have a frame of reference there either. [censored]Second, I plan on spraying the interior compartment with paint. [censored]However, in all of my limited painting adventures it always seems that the darn primer often looks better than the paint itself. [censored](for having that neutral, low gloss or no gloss look). [censored]Can anybody recommend a proven water resistant primer that can be purchased in spray can form?
Thanks Much!
