I am refinishing oak cabinet doors. I already repaired the crappy sand job the contractors ahead of me left. I conditioned, applied 2 coats colored gel stain and two coats clear. Out of 22 doors, 3 didn’t look right. So I sanded them all back down and started over. I finished them all the same way I did all the others. But this time, the fronts of the door panels look really smooth. I don’t see any grain at all like the rest of the doors. They want them redone again. What do I do? Could I have sanded the grain away? Help and confused….How do I get it back?
Wood grain gone- completely confused?
