  • roll of 1″ blue low tack tape (green is fine as well).
  • 1 1/2-2″ quality latex/nylon brush (really prefer if you could bring a professional grade brush like Purdy, Wooster, etc.) No Chip brushes please, (they  loose hair constantly & are poor quality)
  • a 1/2″ -OR- 1″thin brush (again decent quality please).
  • small sanding sponge block (fine, ultra-fine, super fine……any of these grits are fine) No Medium grit sponges please.
  • several  clean rags.
  • putty knife (as we call it in ATL, or 5-in-1 as many call it).
  • Paint Respirator (attached picture below is a basic spray mask sold at Home Depot and Sherwin Williams for about $25 and comes with dual filters).  This is an essential tool in cabinet finishing regardless of what type of materials and/or methods you ultimately choose to use. Hopefully you all already have your own respirators and use them regularly.
