Need some cheap advice. I've built my kitchen cabinet boxes/drawers
etc from some very nice prefinishished birch ply. I don't have the
time or interest to toil over the doors, so I've ordered them from a
shop. I'm going with maple recessed flat panel with square frames,
sort of like a maple shaker style. I'll use some contemporary nickel
or stainless bar pulls etc for a clean contemporary look. Not going
to use stain, just a clear finish. I'm not much into finishing, but
do have a spray gun. Any advice on how to best finish these doors
Matt, Enduro is water borne; either lac or poly is available in a wide
assortment of sheens. go to http://www.compliantspraysystems.com /
It comes water clear or with a warming tint.
Get the Crosslinker for better durability. Enduro is an excellent WB
finish. Oh, and use the Conditioner instead of water for thinning.

If I were to redo the cabinets in my house, I'd use Waterlox. The tung
and linseed oils pop the grain and the varnish and tung oil provide a
tough, waterproof seal. I just picked up a gallon for $45.99 at
www.woodfinishingsupplies.com . I prefer to wipe it on.

I just completed a similar project. Used pine for the face frames and
drawer fronts and cabinet door frames and birch plywood for the door
panels. I used satin poly -- three coats -- applied with foam brush and
got a very satisfactory result.
