So, to achieve the natural, aged cherry look the cabinets were allowed
to sit unfinished for probably about three months prior to our finishing
work. To enrich the natural color, bring out the depth of the wood
and enhance the grain we applied one coat of natural Danish Oil.
This is basically linseed oil mixed with various solvents. To this
we added one part paint thinner to one part Danish Oil, wiped it
on with a rag and promptly wiped off any excess. This was allowed to
dry overnight and then finished with three coats of pre-catalyzed satin
I’ll have more photos when the kitchen is completed.
