stripping oak kitchen cabinets...
i started stripping my kitchen cabinets because the primer (123) wasn't sticking well and scratching off with a rub of my thumbnail. Someone mentioned that I wasn't letting the primer cure for long enough. Well, it's been almost a week and the primer still scratches off relatively easy off my test door.
I've gone gone through 2 rounds of stripping using klean-strip premium paint stripper. With each coat I scrape off the paint and use very coarse steel wool. But even after two coats I am still finding a lot of remaining patches of whatever the protective coating is. It takes a lot of elbow grease and scrubbing to get it all off. At this rate it will take me a year to get them cleaned and ready for repainting.
I'm wondering if there is something else I could be doing instead of scrubbing with steel wool. Perhaps a better stripper?
