I am about to build raised panel cabinet doors and drawer fronts for our kitchen. We want to stain them a deep cherry colour. What is the best method to use after the final staining to protect the finish?

Polyurethane, either sprayed, brushed or hand rubbed. Make sure the stain is completely cured before sealing.

Lights are an integral part of your kitchen, as it is a place of constant activity and work. Also, since it is a common public area of the house, decorative lighting should be present here as well.

After finish all work den must be decorate your kitchen’s with lights.To start making plans about lights to install in your kitchen, you should first set up a budget. It is always good to know beforehand, as to how much you can afford on lighting your kitchen. This includes the cost of fixtures, cords, wires, lamps, bulbs, fitting charges etc. Then, plan a design to light up your kitchen. Each fixture should be placed at an appropriate distance. Also, make sure that no area is left dark and no place of the kitchen should be glaring with lights. One important factor to consider here is the area of the kitchen. Its dimensions and counters would play a deciding role in your kitchen lighting plan. Seek advice of an interior decorator or an architect if you are not sure about how to design this plan.

Thank you all…..............................................................

Raised panel doors are difficult to finish with a brush or a rag. The best finish will come from spraying. HVLP is the correct system for this because of low over-spray and high efficiency of paint transfer, using a 1.5mm needle. Poly or lacquer, either oil or water based would be good choices for your top coat. Apply multiple coats.

If you use Polyurethane as described above, after you get a clear coat or two look for some gel Polyurethane and thin a nice complimentary color. Not too thick; almost to where you dont even see it. It will help even out the stain and give the finish a richer feel. ;)

I have been using spar polyurethane a lot and I wonder if this would be good for a kitchen cabinet finish, especially around the sink, where things drip.
