Default which tape for masking cabinets for stain?

We have some kitchen cabinets to stain, oak inside and out. The stain is a dark red and the interiors just get clear coated. What tape would be reccommended to keep the dark stain for the outsides from getting on the interior which isnt to be colored.

Will be hand wiping - just trying to make sure that we are using the correct tape for keeping a clean line and the insides untouched.

Thanks for input.

There really is not masking that will work for that. If any stain seeps under the masking and does not get wiped right away, it will leave a messed up concentration of stain there when the tape is pulled.

The best thing would be to clear coat the insides first, that way if you get some stain on the finished clear coat it will wipe off if you wipe it right away.

So clear coat the inside without getting any clear on the surface to be stained.

Then stain the outside and finish the outside.

Strategise so that the inner edge of the opening is stained, rather than just purely the outside of the cabinet being stained.

That way if you wind up with any problems in the transition area, at least it wont be on the outside where it is constantly visilble.

Default what tape to use for staining cabinets.......

I always use 1 1/2 inch 3m 20/20, the post before mine is correct, ALWAYS clear coat first, and ALWAYS make sure your masking tape edges is properly knifed down on your surface, there shouldnt ever be any bleeding if you take your time and mask properly.

mask it all then run a small bead of clear caulk along the edge of the tape. This will seal the tape and prevent any bleed under. Or, you could paint some clear over the top of the tape and when it bleeds under it will seal the tape. Hope this helps.
