Would a flush interior door with this treatment be of interest? Vertical, horizontal or "sketched" into opposing grains? (See "Cerused Variants" image.) Plain sliced or quarter-sliced? Open grains like oak are preferred, yes?

Is it possible to achieve the cerused finish on some existing 15 year old golden turned orange, solid oak stained cabinets? I am looking for a contractor in the Northern suburbs of Chicago to bid on a remodel project pertaining to the kitchen cabinets.

What color options can you end up with by cerusing? we are trying to figure out what to do with eduardian oak paneled walls. Hate to paint over them but not sure we've found a way to modernize and avoid the wood heaviness.
