Just getting started on fronting kitchen cabinets with home sawn walnut. Air dried, but thinking I will have to put it in the kiln after it is cut to size (rails, stiles, and boards for panels and drawer glue ups). I like what you did with the drawers, continuing the grain, and was planning on doing the same. This kitchen is small, and the only place to put in a toe kick drawer, hubby put in a toe kick heater instead…..Slant Fin. Big question is really…..what finish did you use? Planning on spraying as much as I can. Being cautious about WB on walnut, but have only used hand finishes up till now. Gave myself an early Mother’s Day present of an Earlex 5500, and added a 1.5 mm needle to the package. Have heard that Vintage Cherry and lacquer looks good, but what about endurance in a kitchen? Anyone?

Hey Brad. Any update on your “Never ending” kitchen project? Would love to see how it is going and see the project with a finish on the walnut.

lol yes still a work in progress. but getting closer. the finish I’m using is from a woodworker/chemist from Portland Oregon. it’s a blend of micro refined walnut oil,shellac (DC 104) followed by a coat of tongue oil. both are wipe on products. The doc 104 was meant for wood turning but applies and looks amazing. The tongue oil is more for durability.
