There are nearly 300 varieties of oak throughout the world. At least 50 varieties grow in North America. Most oak is divided into one of two types or families: white oak and red oak. White oak tends to be less porous and more durable. It is believed by many to have a better color than red oak, and for this reason it is often preferred for furniture and kitchen cabinets. White oak has a finer texture and a more prominent figure. It is more resistant to moisture and fungus. This is a major reason oak kitchen cabinets are so popular. Red oak tends to have a reddish cast and a coarser texture.
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.

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.
