Ok I made 2 mistakes, one not making my own real wood cabinet doors and another was picking doors that have a routed raised look. I have bought pre made routed shaker style doors and they came out perfect but the Co I used did not make that style.
My method of painting is to use Zissner primer, GF milk paint and a GF clear. I love that the low build of the milk paint that makes it look almost sprayed but still have that old charm.
Problem is even using the Oil based pigment primer on the raised portions created fuzz. Actually the CNC was a bit rough and not smooth to begin with. I figured the primer wood cover it. It actually made it worse.
This is a fairly detailed profile on 25 doors. Is there a high build primer that would cover without sanding too much? They are MDF so sanding also deforms the profile.
I have heard glue mixtures, thinned drywall compund, brushed DAP Alexplus, etc, etc???
I can’t imagine these door co’s are had sanding each profile as they only charge $8 to prime which I would have gladly paid but they shipped raw by mistake vs priming first.
Anybody have experience in doing this type of door??? As usual any help is greatly appreciated.
