  • Posted in thread: Walnut plywood slab cabinet doors: options for finishing on 02-25-2016 at 12:55 PM
    I'm not sure where to begin my testing, but from what I've read, a Danish oil (medium or dark
    walnut) followed by a spray lacquer or wipe on poly is a good and relatively simple way to
    finish walnut. ...

    I've had several posts during my kitchen reno, and I'm sure I'll have more. I appreciate all
    the input so far. I couldn't do projects like this without the advice.I'm now moving on to my
    semi-custom c...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I know what you're talking about and I'll look into that.

    This is 1/2" thick solid bamboo, so it's about as dense and hard as hardwood gets. I'm not too
    concerned about durability, but I guess I'll see. This is not bamboo laminated to other
    material, which p...

    I'll give that a shot. I'll have plenty of leftover from the 72" transition piece I bought for
    another spot.

    The 1/2" figure is manufacturer specification. It's solid bamboo. It'll be under baseboard and
    shoe molding everywhere else. The door threshold is part of the door assembly. My options seem
    to be rip ...

    I believe this is my last question... Since I need to leave 1/2" space off the wall, what
    should I do at the exterior door threshold to cover that 1/2" gap? It seems like flooring
    usually butts up to ...

    I wasn't sure if a different blade would be necessary due to the hardness of bamboo.

    I definitely understand you are offering your experience only. I think I am fairly comfortable
    going under the cabinets and gluing the joints in those spots. This kitchen is only about 110
    square feet...

    That certainly makes me feel better about any minor discrepancies in my plan. There's really no
    reason I can't glue this down, it's just easier to put down and take up if it's floating. I
    really can't...
