Restaining kitchen cabinets

Any pointers from those of you who do this type of work regularly? I have 29 year old oak cabinets that are stained with honey, slightly yellowish stain. I guess its straight forward, strip down to bare wood, clean, sand with 220 or so, stain, seal with polyurethane, light sand, seal again. Oil or water based stain?

The stripping is the hard part. Post a project on here to let us know how it goes. I just bought a house and would like to strip the cabinets and re-stain.

I would use the same based stain as the top coat--i.e oil stain, oil poly or vice versa. You will also need large containers of "elbow grease"!!

I do plan to use a chemical stripper first and then sand off whatever is left, not looking forward to starting the project.

Citrus strip is fine. Wrap in painter's plastic overnight. May need two coats. Also use a pre stain conditioner before applying any stain.

If you ae going to remove doors make sure and number them, use a system that will not come off with the stripper. use a grill cleaning brush to help remove the stripper from the grain, like earlier post recommended a stain control before staining will help you get a more uniform stain.
