finish sanding, staining, sealing maple cabinets
I have new maple cabinets, maple ply sides, solid maple doors and drawers. I have access to Ferrel Calhoun, Sherwin Williams, Cabot or Minwax products. Please suggest a stain color that will tone down any red or yellow look. I am hoping for a soft brown color like Honey Maple or Infused Honey. What stain manufacturer, poly oil varnish? I bought a Wagner's airless sprayer to finish the cabinets with. I plan to practice on a outbuilding first.
I have been sanding. I do not see any appreciable difference, except a few marks and fingersprints removed. What am I looking for?
THANKS for any replys
