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.
You may even choose to paint them depending on the look you really want. Though oak kitchen cabinets are natural honey toned in color, you will be able to paint them virtually any color you want. You may even choose to stain them to look like another type of wood.
