    Looking at repainting/refacing woodgrain kitchen cabinets. The plan was to sand them smoooth until smooth to elminate woodgrain and paint that surface.
    Wanting to check on an idea. You know how concrete levelers poured into concrete will settle itself "level" filling in the crack or hole to even with the surface, with a little smoothing of course. Is there a product or procedure in which one might apply it to the woodgrain surface and then the medium would fill in the wood grain "evenly" and then sanding that saving the effort and hours to sand out the woodgrain itself?

    Trying to "remove" the wood grain for "full" flat finish and repaint, no wood or grain showing. hopefully find a way to do it without hardships of sanding down and out the woodgrain itself, understanding that sanding will be involved

    Thank you,
    Jeffreyarch

    That's an interesting question. I've never heard of that type of "leveling" product, but a good paint store might know of one, if it exists. I did see one good how to on painting cabinets...hope this helps.

    Have you looked at new doors? Check out Rockler.com. If you just need something to do. Leveling and sanding and leveling and sanding is a project if you do it correctly. Try to spray the finnish. If you do woodworking, make your own doors. Good Luck. Hope you don't have many to do. G
