cabinet varnish question

Okay, so this is a follow-up, to a follow-up question regarding the crap varnish job my cabinetmaker did on my cabinet that seems to fading away due to drops of water that every once in a while run down the face of the cabints near the sink. I got some other answers out of him which led me to some more questions. He uses a Pre-Catalitic finish not a Post-Catalitic finish. I know there is a difference between the two, but is one reccomended for regular use and the other for an area where you would have more water around? is one better than the other?
Also, there are a couple of places where it looks to me like the veneer is lifting in small lines that run down the cabinets, it's kind of hard to describe, but when you run your hand over it, it feels like very skinny, tiny creases. I told the cabinet maker and he told me I'm feeling the wood grain, which is complete bullshit, since i don't feel the grain on any finished cabinet I've ever run my hand across, unless it was the type of furniture where you were supposed to feel the grain. I asked if it was possible for the veneer to pull off and he said that it was adheised (sp?) with heat and that there is no way it's coming off. I got a bad feeling this is going to get worse real quick. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever dealt with something like this.
thanks.

It doesnt matter what he used or did, bottom line you paid for a quality job and did not get one, do you owe him money. Demand he fixes it, or file in court.
