I need some advice…
it’s old particle board boxes with oak face frames. doors are solid oak as well
I will take the solid slab doors and cut my stiles and rails from it to make flat panel doors.
here’s my question…for the ply , does it mater if I get birch ply for instance? how much of the grain shows through even after painting?
same for my new cabinets, would I need to build those from the same materials? I’ve always built my face frames using poplar …but if it will show differently after being painted then maybe I should go with oak??
I will blog the progress of this project as soon as I get some pics….
