I'd like to redo my tired looking oak kitchen cabinets. The easiest way is
probably to re-paint over them. I'd like to avoid sanding as much as
possible. I found this liquid sander in the hardware store. Does it really
work? Or, do I still have to sand the trims, the nooks and cranks? I just
need to rough up the surface, so that the primer would adhere. Which primer
should I use? I bought this enamel primer from Home Depot. It's unopened
and has been sitting in the garage for over 3 months (some hot summer days)
now, is it still good?
Anything sticks to DEWAXED shellac. Zinsser Seal Coat is dewaxed and
has shelf life of 3 years. The shellac I mix using flakes shelf life
is about 6 months.

Use a standard cleaner to remove grease that you might not be able to
see. Some people use lacquer thinner. Prime with Zinnser's BIN primer. It
is a 4 pound cut of white pigmented shellac. It dries quickly since it is
alcohol based so don't over brush it. Spackle or putty any holes, etc. that
need it and spot prime these area with more BIN. Make sure you use a paint
that will stand up to a kitchen environment and the scrubbing it will
undergo over time.
