The oak door example above came from this cabinet project seen below. If you examine the closeup pictures you will see how the natural beauty of the wood grain can still be seen under light reflection from one angle and not so much from another. When the project is all put together and complete you will see touches of the grain when light reflects onto the surface.
A popular question we hear is "How will the wood grain on my oak cabinets look when my cabinets are painted?"
In our pictures above you can see how much the grain shows through if it is not filled in. We do not recommend this look. We like to take the extra time to fill in the wood grain to give your cabinets a smooth finish and not have the busy wood grain be the main focal point. Isn't that half the reason to paint oak cabinets?
We do not make your doors look like a laminate cabinet door, you will still see the wood grain, it just won't be so "busy" looking. This look keeps your cabinets looking like beautiful real wood with a subtle graining and a smooth satin finish.
Not all oak cabinet projects come out exactly the same, being a product of nature, but we make sure that they all come out looking their best!
