    Hello, I was wondering if anybody could advise me. We recently purchased some Afican Maple flush veneered doors to replace some damaged ones. When we had them delivered they were a completely different colour than our originals. We were then told that it is just the way it happens. To be honest they look like they are from a completely different tree. We can't get our money back so i am wondering if you are able to sand down these type of doors and re varnish them?

    Ha, ha, very funny. I did mean a different type of tree (like a beech), obviously I didn't think the tree that was used to make the doors for my flat about seven years ago was still hanging around waiting for me to damage a door and order a replacement! Although, this would have been very handy :) So do you have any advice?

    How many of each type of door do you have? How many old and how many new?

    Ah, I was thinking you might be as well buying new doors to replace the old ones, but if you've got 4 then it'd be a bit pricey.

    Have you considered white paint? ;)
