cabinet coat on oak

Paint1May 3, 2011

I was wondering if anyone had any adivce - painted first coat of Cabinet Coat on an unfinished oak cabinet and it really raised the grain and is now very prickly to the touch. Will the second coat fix this or do I need to sand it to smooth it and then paint it??

Thanks for any help!

You should have primed first since some tannin bleed through is likely. In fact, I would let the first coat of CC dry a few days, sand smooth then go ahead and prime. Follow this with 2 coats of CC.

I am thinking of painting my Cherry Stained Oak cabinets white, would you recommend using a wood filler on the oak cabinets first, then prime, sand and paint???
