My neighbour contacted me to build a pantry for his wife, that would occupy the space where they had a refrigerator that was replaced by a bigger one.
I took this as the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of kitchen cabinetry, but I had to basically duplicate the design of the overall kitchen (another opportunity to purchase router bits!)
As you can see in the pictures, I almost could match the stain, but the new cabinet shows the pine grain very prominently, which I just couldn’t disguise. I knew pine has this tendency to revert the grain figures, but am still wondering how can I stain pine, so the dense wood gets stained as the softer parts…
I used oil based mixed stains, and used wood condirioned on the raised panels to try to alleviate this issue, but had no luck…
The pictures show, the last one is the empty space where the new pantry was placed.
I appreciate any suggestions as to how to best stain pine to disguise the differences in grain…
