rework of built in kitchen cabinets
I have never attempted this before, so need some guidance.
My own kitchen has built in cabinets done by previous owner or his contractor. Built of some type of 3/4 inch veneered plywood, 5 ply + veneer. I would like to determine the species, if possible (or if it matters).
The deal is I want to apply some veneer to the end of a modified wall hung cabinet that has some exposed end cuts/framing. I was going to apply some trim pieces to cover the seams, as an "artistic expression", but had this brainstorm that veneer could be used instead, making it look like I actually knew what I was doing and not a total hack job. It only look me two days after applying edge veneer to the shelf pieces and inside edges of the face frame for it to dawn on me. No, sadly, more coffee is probably not the solution to that part.
Since I am going to stain it to match (always a challenge anyway) does it really matter that much? As long as it is close in grain and natural tone?
