Cabinet Boy Refinishing Process
By Nathalie Aguirre, Builder Boy Designer
The first step is the design consultation where the homeowner can explore colors, stains, and application options for the cabinet refinishing. Cabinet Boy will supply custom samples for your approval of cabinet color and wood application.
The Cabinet Boy crew removes all door and drawer fronts and taken back to our workshop to begin the refinishing process. The doors and drawers are first cleaned with T.S.P. and solvent. We strip, sand, and prepare all doors and drawers as needed for custom stain, paint-grade, or lacquer. After application a custom glazing is sealed and applied to the doors and drawers. We then seal the glaze and apply a minimum of four coats clear finish to all door and drawers.
Our Cabinet Boy crew returns for the cabinet box refinishing process. The crew masks the interior as scheduled for refinishing with tape, plastic, red rosin paper, and drop cloths. All surfaces not scheduled for refinishing are detached and reset, masked off, and or covered up. Like the fronts, the cabinet boxes are cleaned with T.S.P. and solvent. We strip, sand, and prepare all cabinet boxes as needed for custom stain, paint-grade, or lacquer. After application a custom glazing is sealed and applied to the boxes. We then seal the glaze and apply a minimum of four coats clear finish to complete the cabinet boxes.
The door and drawer fronts are later returned to the job site for installation. Upgrade your hardware with optional new Blum soft-close hidden hinges and soft-close drawer glide features for a complete kitchen upgrade. Lastly all debris generated by operation to be cleaned up and hauled away.
