maybe I misspoke… I believe its 35 gal… Its about chest high on me (I’m 6’ tall). I’ll check.

So, that seems like a lot to cut – I hope it doesn’t mess with the paint too much. Label says (and gives specs) for spraying, but says thin sparingly with water if needed. Would one cut it 60/40 with floetrol, or should I do mostly water and just a sensible amount of floetrol?

So, in the end, I’ll be spraying no matter what – if its rough, well, its rough. It’ll still look better than brushing the inlay portion (they are raised panel doors). So, if it ends up rough, would it be possible to sand it down some with a 220 grit (maybe finer?) sandpaper and just lightly roll the raised and flat portions to get the sheen of the door to match that of the cabinet? I have a buddy that used a paperbag and/or cotton cloth to “sand” his stuff between finish coats.
