    My old mum has a bog standard oak kitchen, solid door rails and stiles with ply or mdf faces panels, of course the finish , nasty acid cured laquer or somethning, has gone dull after a few years and she now wants a bright white kitchen like her next door neighbour !

    Painting over good oak is sacrilege to me.

    I'm saying i will strip the doors and lime wax finish them, and paint the rest ( i used to french polish gun stocks i know a bit about it)

    Is this a do'able project ?
