Two Ways to Cut Oak - When building oak kitchen cabinets, it is possible to choose straight or plain cut or quarter-saw. The difference will be very obvious. Oak has strips of a special tissue that radiates from the center of the tree or log out to the edge. These strips of tissue look a great deal like spokes of a wheel. When the log is cut through by quarter sawing, the boards will show flakes of smooth wood. The effect can be very beautiful. Quarter sawing does not produce the same effect in narrow strips, but it can be spectacular in cabinet doors.

When it comes to cabinetry I simply love to stain and varnish them each and every opportunity I get. I really enjoy taking my time and savoring every moment of it. From preparation to staining and varnishing to completion, I truly enjoy this special task and I guess it is because of my love for wood. Whether it's cheery, cypress, mahogany, birch, pine, red oak, white oak, walnut, pecan, or any other species; I love wood! In my opinion wood is in a class of its own and nothing else even comes remotely close. But sometimes wood needs a little something extra to bring out its beauty and charm--its grace and stateliness. And that is why we stain and varnish it to help bring out its natural elegance and splendor.
Believe it or not, there are some folk out there who do not appreciate the beauty and the richness of red oak wood and there are some people out there who really don't appreciate oak wood at all. But I'm not one of them and over the years I have come to love and revere oak wood in general and particularly red oak wood. In this article I am going to give you a step by step guide to help you stain and varnish your red oak cabinets. I will be focusing on new cabinets but the same procedures are in order for existing red oak cabinets with the exception being that all existing coatings on your cabinets must be completely removed before you can re-stain them. Once again, I cannot stress this point enough; all previous coatings-stains, urethane, paints and primers must be totally removed from your cabinets before you can begin your re-staining and re-varnishing system.
