If you are going to make the cabinets out of birch ply, I would not paint them. I’d build them, and use tung oil and mineral spirits. A 50/ 50 mix of both…..It will make the cabinets look good, and also put a good finish on them….Two coats will be fine… I use tung oil and spirits on all my cabinets, tables, workbenches, outfeed tables, and even jigs and fixtures…...take a look at my shop furniture and you’ll see why I like it…..Pine or poplar is good for paint….
