Long time reader, first time poster. I have a couple questions about BIN flash, maybe you guys have a better idea about than me.

I typically BIN knots twice and then prime with oil and finish with 2 coats of paint, I am not really satisfied with the results and would like to have the finish come out better.

My customer has knotty pine kitchen cabinets that they would like painted. Since these cabinets will be sprayed with a semi-gloss sheen is there any way to prevent the BIN from flashing through the finish coat? Would it be a good idea to BIN the entire surface and not just the knots?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

First, Welcome from a Masshole, who has ties to Cow Hampster.


As a great and reknown painter/paperhanger from StL would say, "You're gonna get a little of that, ma'am"

Personally I think it is because of the knot. As you know a knot is hard and sappy (unlike me, I'm SOFT and sappy ;) ) It just ain't gonna take paint like the soft open grain wood surrounding it - especially if you're talking pine.

But that's my unscientific opinion.

What's your finish paint? If it's anything less than a SG, try something more glossy.

daArch, Thanks for the reply.

I usually use SW Superpaint semi-gloss, I would like to try Aura but it hasn't made it up to this neck of the woods yet.

Do you really think using a glossier paint would help, I figured it would just make the flashing look even worse?

I think - therefore I am.

I make mistakes - therefore I am human

It was a thought. When in doubt - test it out
