kitchen cabinets are ugly and almost black in color. we're thinking of refacing
doors), but this one damaged area needs special prep; it's below the sink:
it's still sturdy, so shouldn't need to be cut out and new 1x spliced in for
Darkish blotches remind me that, years ago, we gave this edge a coat of brown
the edge has since been scratched by fingernails. I think even without the
water would still have soaked it.
right now, i'd guess this would be best prep:
sand off the swollen high spots.
something that can soak into the particle board porousness, to firm it up?
primer, to seal
"plastic" wood filler (not the water-based patch), sand. fill and sand until
probably prime again to seal (all around, including inner side of cabinet front)
then apply refacing "veneer"
so yes, a question, is there a better way?
