Stains to Make the Wood Grain “Pop”

Lee Stover of Mill Cabinet Shop in Bridgewater Va, illustrates how stain can make the wood grain “pop”. Lee calls attention to the fact that the assorted woods take in stain differently and explains that this is, in part, due to the method used to sand the wood.

Lee explains that knowledge of sanding is vital in the making of quality cabinetry as the methods used to sand the wood will affect the application of the stain and the consistency, color, and overall look of the final product.
