  1. Reno. I usually just go buy what I need for each project. Probably will just find a vendor who sells cabinet doors and see if they can provide in needed dimensions.
  2. Yes, I see some links doing a google search - I'd rather find a place that has a good track record than just roll the dice and hope for a good experience with an unknown internet vendor. Thanks for all your responses. My oak veneer plywood (house built in 1983) looks pretty cheap. I'll take a look at some new product at HD !
  3. I am in need of some plain old red oak slabs for end pieces in my kitchen cabinets - right now I have plywood oak veneer. Dimensions are: 12 by 30 inches 24 by 54 inches 24 by 84 inches 24 by 36 inches Any leads where I can buy this, much appreciated ! Doug
  4. Shopping for "furniture strippers", I have narrowed down my research to two products. My local favorite paint store sells "Jasco", which I understand has some MC. The alternative is "Formby's Refinisher", which I see gets some good reviews. Anyone use either of these two products ? Thanks
  5. Been out on medical leave the last several days, but I'm finally back on this. Thank you for your responses. So my house was built 35 years ago and I have no idea if my cabinet doors have been replaced sometime. The existing doors (look like red oak) have a "golden oak" finish. It took me one hour to sand the finished door - hoping I can cut this time down somehow. I have 30 doors to refinish. I put "WATCO Danish Oil" stain on the door I finished. I'm not worrying bout being super perfectionist - I'll be happy with a rustic look. Here's a side by side picture of a finished and an existing door. Will lacquer and synthetic steel wool speed up my process still ? Otherwise I just throw the rotary sander on the door and take off the flat areas. The struggle is with the irregular surfaces. Thanks !
  6. I'm sanding off a golden oak stain and varnish and replacing the stain with a mahogany Danish oil stain. I think the Danish oil is a combo of stain and a finish. Great suggestion on possibly stripping - will check that out.
  7. Thanks stick486. The foam mold idea looks like a great solution..
  8. I'm a newbie to this task. I have red oak kitchen cabinets that I want to sand and restain. My problem is the length of time it takes to sand down ONE door. and I have about 35 doors to refinish. They are what I believe are called "raised panel" doors, but there are about 6 different edges - 4 are about 1/8 inch. In addition, the surface of one inset has a curved profile. I bought a rotary sander that works great on the flat areas. BUT, I am shopping around for "detail sanding" tools and not having luck finding the right tool. Yes, I found a sanding sponge with an edge - still a lot of manual work ! I've been looking at oscillating sanding tools, but am striking out. I also see a "sanding mop" out there - pretty pricey and I'm not sure how well it works. If it works, I'd pay the price... WHAT DETAIL SANDING TOOLS SHOULD I BE USING ? thanks for any shared wisdom ! dmypub

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
