JerryNY Posted May 6, 2016 Report Share Posted May 6, 2016 Just a question for the woodworking experts on here. Some background first; I'm in the process of renovating a kitchen and as I come closer to the end I'm doing some detail work. One thing I'm making is a trim surround for a wall-oven that sits in a brick wall. I'm trying to frame it with a surround that matches some of the gray colored cabinetry of the kichen and got a can of matching gray laquer from the manufacturer. After some experimenting I'm going to go with a some clear semigloss deft laquer over the base color coat to match the sheen of the cabinets. I was wondering if I'm better off making it out of mdf for a smoother painted surface or just use maple like the cabinets and if I should use a laquer sanding sealer on the mdf/wood then just sand, apply base coat and then multiple semi-gloss clears on top? Do I need to prime the wood if using the sealer? Any advice would be greatly appreciated... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
