staining dresser drawers??????

4 posts in this topic

just got a new dresser that is all bare wood. I think its pine. Wife thinks it should be stained then clear coated even the interior part of the drawers. We got the outside stained and clear coated but still debating on the inside whether we should stain and clear coat or just clear coat or just leave it bare wood. Any input or opinions on this? what do you think? Thanks

I would at least clear coat it. You want to seal the wood before putting clothes in there, making the surface smoother to eliminate snags and slivers. My dad used to make furniture, and would just clear coat. He would only use one coat, but then he used a higher grade of wood, and it was sanded really smooth.

It all depends on who you talk to. I like to leave them wood. Some of the builders I work for want them clear coated on the inside. Its all up to you.....

Lots of old dressers out the that have never had the drawers sealed. So your not taking any short cuts by not sealing the interior of the drawers. You'll need to steel wool the first coat and add another if your do or else your clothes will snag. I for sure wouldn't stain them.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
