Been a woodworker for 40 years. I built kitchen cabinets with oak plywood, stained to match exterior finish because doors have glass fronts. Used Minwax Gunstock oil based stain. Let dry 2 days. Sprayed interior and exterior w satin Aguelente full strength using Fuji HVLP ...Nice hard finish! However 3 years later, there is still a chemical odor emanating from the cabinet that lingers on all the glassware stored in the cabinet giving any beverage a hint of the odor whether the glass is stored upside down or not... rinsing the glass before filling w beverage does work to eliminate it.
