Hello Peter, I submitted a question in Knots and got some good answers from informed folks…your thoughts?? I am looking for a smooth finish to match the new components of birch.
Scoured the forum for a “like” problem. I have a large bookshelf built in and am converting it to an entertainment center. The wood used – for the large pieces, face frames, doors and shelves is ash (deep dark grain), it is stained and covered with varnish. The converted entertainment center will be painted. I am replacing many components with birch ply and birch solid wood (for ease of painting) to accommodate my new needs.
I need recommendations: what type of stripper to use for the varnish? Recommend a grain filler for the ash, prior to priming. Recommend a sturdy primer and paint for the entertainment center (my son will be banging around the center to play Xbox….you know the drill) I cant afford a “soft paint finish” !! I do have a hvlp or am willing to use brush.
Thanx in advance….Willy
