finish edges of new kitchen cabinets10/20/15
I have several kitchen cabinet boxes to finish, a lot of them have only edge tape on front 1/2 inch wide, I need to stain and clear them, rather than masking the all off so as not to spray into box. anything I could brush on that will look nice.
Shellac! Quick and easy. Or, Deft brushable lacquer. Or, Wax.
i have done hundreds of kitchens that were already assembled and used to make short work out of the cabinets by using a wiping stain and precat lacquer.
Robert and kevin thanks for your input. I have sprayed with a shield before, but always looking for a different way.
You don't say what the finish or the sheen is is on the rest of the cabinets but I have had great results just wiping a sealer coat of 2k urethane with a rag, scuff sanding with 400 grit and then wiping on a top coat of 2k urethane. Don't wipe too hard or you'll take off the previous coat but I could do a good size batch of cabinets in 1/2 hour.
Water based clear works really well wiped on as well as shellac which can be wiped or padded on.
We also had a hand held UV curing light which was REALLY cheating.
