Re: Tulipwood or unsorted

My guess would be yes after a few seasons of shrinkage and expansion. But it's a guess from having glued a few bits onto reclaimed doors to make them openings Nothing a sand and repaint doesn't then sort out for a good few more years. Maybe its better with a presumably much more industrial glue proc...

Re: Throw it to the floor

Make sure it is cross-linking PVA if using as a primer, otherwise you'll end up with floor-fudge. Most of the expensive primers are as far I can work out are SBR (unless epoxy) which is giant to PVA dwarf but the costs reflect that.

Don't give a crap about that, but bunging the letterplate hole through most of the (narrow to start with) stile right under the lock is pure genius. Clearly you disagree for some reason, Steve.

What sort of drill are you using? I would make a jig for this. That way you can drill the jig on your pillar vertically, and as long as you work out the jig referencing to the stock, the hole will be vertical. http://www.boneham.co.uk/shop/product/ph_type_metric_jig_bush_bs1098_pt.2_1977/iso_4247_/d...

It's a bit odd they sell it under two names, but it is a lovely paint to use (and I hate painting) - I first used it (and the Otex primer) on my derided 1.whatever tonnes of mdf alcove cupboards and it was a revelation to me in terms of flat finish.

For water-based and as someone who hates painting I would wholeheartedly recommend Tikurilla Helmi. I haven't used it on a kitchen but it is tough as nails,and leaves a great finish whether you want a spray-like flat finish (microfibre roller) or brushed (roll on/lay-off with a brush).
