Remodel Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Material

Solid Wood Veneer

The Veneer below for your do it yourself kitchen cabinet refacing project is good cabinet grade solid wood veneer with a paper backing and a peel and stick back. The peel and stick veneer is as easy to use as self stick shelf paper, actually easier, because you're working with outside surfaces. The veneer is best applied with veneering tools which make it easier to apply for a long lasting kitchen cabinet refacing project.

Tack Cloths

Tack clothes are one of the most important tools for any part of your project to remodel your kitchen from complete remodeling to kitchen cabinet refacing or repainting. If you have done everything else perfectly, but don't clean the dust off thoroughly the veneer won't stick. After everything else is done. Clean well at least 3 times to be sure all sanding dust is removed.

Tack clothes are lint free fabric impregnated with a sticky substance.



Veneer

This Pressure sensitive veneer is very easy to use.

After the surface of the kitchen cabinet is prepared just peel the protective backing and carefully line up the veneer where you want it and apply a little pressure to the center of the piece to hold it where you want it.

Using your veneering tools apply heavy pressure, working from the center out, until the veneer is laid solid without air bubbles and that piece is done.







Veneer Edge Banding

This crown molding gives a touch of elegance to your project. Measure carefully to be sure that you have room above your doors for the crown molding.

If your kitchen cupboards don't go clear to the ceiling the crown molding will add a very noticeable high quality appearance to them.

Use your imagination to make some design additions on your own. A dentil across the top of the kitchen cabinets or a rope design around the edge of the doors always looks nice.

Miter Saw

When you use moldings you need to make very precise 45 degree cuts at the ends. This is an excellent Miter Saw for making those cuts.

The price is more than you would pay for the old wooden box type, but the cuts are a lot more accurate.

Miter Trimmer

This miter trimmer is a little more expensive than the miter saw, but the ease of use and accuracy makes the extra cost worth it.
