Wood Grain Issue11/22
I have a Solid Rift Cut White Oak appliance panel, that someone has sand smooth..
This is a hardwood frame, plywood panel with 2 hardwood plaques stacked on top of each other to make the raised panel.
The plywood panel only shows about an 1" reveal but has a ton of grain, and makes the piece look ridiculous finished, as the rest of its smooth.
Wire brushing would be difficult because of the rail to style joints of the doors face frame, not to mention the whole door is just busy. i could fill the grain on the plywood and make it all smooth. but not something i really want to do.
The door was hinged wrong and had to be stripped of it previous finish and now i would like to get better grain from the wood
aside from acetone or water, not sure what else to do
it seems to me like you answered your own question. You have 2 very logical methods of correcting this but you "dont want" to do them.
I stripped it to the grain, wet it and put a heat gun to it, let it dry out a day and then finished it..
looks good, but took way to much effort.
