    Finishing Wood to match white thermofoil

    I have a couple of wall cabinets for a bathroom I'm redoing that are finished in white thermofoil. These are "stock" cabinets that I'm building a frame to ***ist with mouting the cabinets and also to integrate some lighting.

    I'll be using cabinet grade plywoood and clear pine or poplar for the framework I'm making.

    Does anyone have a recommendation on how to finish this so it looks good with the thermofoil? (Paint manufacturer, sheen level, application method...)

    Thanks!

    Hi Cebby,

    From what I know of thermofoil it is a heat-set paint that they put over mdf.
    This might be hard to duplicate. Jeff Jewitt has a finishing site (forgot the url, but if you search his name you should be able to find). Can also try www.refinishwizard.com for another group that may be able to help you.
