Wood frame doors9/27
Hi all hope your doing great
I have a project to make wood frames for mdf doors and it need to be painted white may i ask what type of should be used for tjis type of frames
Hello, as far as building material as a painter I see finger joined paint grade pine used for jambs and such. Most big box stores carry some already primed. You may have to touch up edges you cut though.
When finishing the jambs, if raw wood, water pop the grain a bit by using a damp cloth and water. Damp only. Just need to get the surface mainly.
Allow to dry. This will raise the mill layer that actually lays the grain down.
While sanding can remove the mill marks alone, less aggressive labor may now be preformed if water popping is allowed to raise it evenly and allow to be sanded much easier.
Prime with a wood friendly water based primer sealer that is available to you.
Sand that lightly, dust, and paint twice.
Though I would love to get into the technical aspect of finishing but I would need at least 2 volumes to get my point across.
I am not pushing Home Depot by any means. This link is for reference only. I did not want to steal the image that ain't right.
Remember you get what you pay for so check your local lumber yard first ALWAYS please! and, Thank you
