Be frugal, not cheap

Sounds like a dual edged weapon, bad it was cheap because it cheap, but then it came off more easily for just that reason (cheap)? Regardless, it looks like a lot of work either way.

The doors look pickled or is that a strip still in progress.

The undercoat was a white opaque finish.  It came off pretty well on the face frame, so I'm going to strip the doors again tomorrow.   It was not that obvious until I took the flash photos.   Would have shown up in the staining.

I would have to be "pickled " to attempt that. The fumes from that stripper are not funny,only make you funny.

Your doing a good job,Kieth, the wood under neath is good looking shame it had to be painted.

Well, did the second round of stripper, rinsed with scotch-brite & acetone, and sanded with 120, then 150.    Edges got a light hit with a block plane.   Almost ready for the finish when I get the face frame sanded and a half-wall top re-made.   Still not sure I would not have been ahead just to make new doors.

I plan to make an espresso finish.   Start with a red undertone dye, then stain with GF Espresso stain, and I'll be trying EnduroVar for the first time.  Probably will brush on the face frame and spray the rest.

I'll be interested in haring your opinion on the Enduro Var. I've used it (once) and really like it. As waterborne finishes go it's seems to be one of the most durable available today.

Me too. It looks like a product that I could like to use, and is available in my area (Oregon is one of those @#$! VOC states that limits what you can have shipped in)
