Oak cabinet painting - preparation

Removing Crud

Seeing this kind of crud on older oak kitchen cabinets is not un-common. Removing it however, is a challenge.  Crud must be removed before painting and to do this, we start with razor scrapers.

Here is a sneak peak of our next oak kitchen that will be painted white. The bulk of our work starts with scraping old grease to get down to the clean wood. We chuckle when we read how people say you don’t need to sand before painting.
