Hi All,
I'm a general Contractor and my painter and cabinet manufacturer have had problems in the past staining birch cabinets.
In fact my painter hates it when the client specs out birch. It seems no matter what preparation he does, the stain wants to go on blotchy. The last time he had to strip down the cabinets and re-stain and they turned out fine the second time, (for no apparent reason). But you don't really know what you're going to get until it's done.
He tried using top of the line conditioners, applied very heavily, and very lightly. Still having the same problem. Right now he's doing samples for the client to make stain selections but we're both afraid of what might happen when we get to the real deal. The samples are not good.
Has anyone had issues like this and what might the solution be?
Thank You

blotchy birch

Thanks researchhound. My cabinet guy sands the cabinets numerous times prior to delivery. I'll check on the Daly brand. I'm sure there's a simple solution. I've seen some beautiful birch finished products.
