In any kitchen, cabinet doors made of oak can be a natural-looking and very impressive visual element. But their good looks are only until they are nicely finished. If a gloss and stain on doors have become dingy and worn, then one option with you is to remove them to wood barely and refinish these woods from scratch. One most effective way is one combination of sanding, which will take off existing stain by exposing bare wood and chemical stripper, which will take off existing gloss.
Remove cabinet doors. Brush a chemical stripper on each door’s entire surface. Scrape off softened finish by one putty knife by pushing it in forward direction of grain. Let doors to dry completely. Brush over wood stain with one paintbrush heavily, letting it to pool over surface. Brush polyurethane on doors in one thin and even layer going with grain of wood. After it dries out, hand-sand them and do this for two more times. Re-install all doors.
