You would need a stain that would penetrate the wood veneer. A good oil based stain should be able to penetrate all the way through. Lightly sand the face of the veneer with 220 grit or higher sand paper. I use a sanding block made out of rigid foam and sand by hand. You will need to keep the veneer wet with the stain until it penetrates. I would stain both sides of the veneer until it penetrates to the depth you desire and then wipe off any remaining stain. You may need to press the veneer until it dries thoroughly! Good luck.

Can you tell me a company that deals with the production of wooden doors manufactured with the appropriate interior and design ?


An increasing number of people are turning away from plain ready to paint, unvarnished or inexpensive wood imitations from the DIY stores. Real wood doors are in with made to measure doors and door frames of high quality veneer which are making their entrance back to UK apartments and houses. All doors and door frames made of veneer are the result of time-consuming and manual craftsmanship whereby the suitable veneer are selected and further processed for each job. This ensure optimum colour matching of door leaves, door frames and architraves. Each piece of veneer furniture is unique, even if it is manufacture in series production. Therefore finished wood surfaces bring nature into the living room, kitchen, bedroom and offices and create a pleasantly homely atmosphere.

How to stain fiberglass entry door?


You cannot use regular stain on a Fiberglass door. Stain is made to soak into wood. It cannot soak into Fiberglass. It will peel right off in several months depending on the weather. A solid stain may would work for a while, but it will not hold up as well. Whereas stain is made to soak into wood, paint is made to sit on top of surfaces. There are some nice paints that look like stained wood if that is the effect you are looking for. But if you want the new finish to last on your door, use paint. Make sure you clean the door thoroughly with a degreaser, prep solvent or paint thinner

How to stain wood veneer all the way through


I would use a oil based stain and soak the veneer in it. If it is veneer as in a piece of furniture you would continue to apply the stain until it sits on top of the veneer. You can also thin the stain to allow it to absorb into the veneer.

What are the different types of cabinet doors?


wikipedia provides a good explanation, quoted below:
Frames
. In the U.S. solid wood frame and panel construction, using either mortise and tenon or cope and stick jointed frames, is traditional, with maple, cherry, oak, birch, and hickory among the most commonly used species. Mortise-and-tenon frames, with their greater strength and permanence, are more costly to produce and less commonly used as compared to cope-and-stick frames. As an alternative, miter joint frames, which may be identifiable by face-surface relief that follows continuously around the frame, have become popular. Miter-jointed frames typically employ embedded metal fasteners to secure frames elements (stiles and rails) cut at a 45 angle. Captured within frames, panels may be either solid or veneered engineered wood (either particle board or medium density fiberboard). Laminates, including those designed to resemble hardwood, can typically be identified by a more rounded appearance associated with the minimum bending radii necessarily entailed by the manufacturing process of applying laminate to an underlying substrate. By comparison, solid surfaces, and solid hardwoods in particular, can be milled with more sharply defined corners, edges, or grooves on either a panel or frame.
  • Panels. Panels used in frame-and-panel kitchen cabinet doors may be fashioned either of solid wood or covered by paint, veneer, or laminate in which case they are fashioned of engineered wood. The panels are typically not fastened with glue or nails but rather "float" within the frame to accommodate seasonal expansion or contraction of the wood frame.
  • Solid-door construction. Doors may be fabricated of solid material, either engineered wood (particle board or medium-density fiberboard, but not typically plywood) or solid wood. Engineered wood panels may either be used as slabs or may be shaped to resemble frame-and-panel construction. In either case, engineered wood panels are generally painted, veneered, or laminated. Solid wood panels are typically formed of multiple boards of the selected wood species, jointed together using glue and may either be painted or finished. Solid wood construction offers the possibility of refinishing in case of damage or wear.
  • Decorative panels. Cabinet doors panels can be used decoratively on cabinet sides, where exposed, for a more finished appearance.
  • Glass door construction options. Doors may have glass windows constructed of muntins and mullions holding glass panels (as in exterior windows). Other designs either mimic the divided-light look of muntins and mullions with overlays, or may dispense with them altogether. Cabinets using glass doors sometimes use glass shelves and interior lighting from the top of a cabinet. A glass shelf allows light to reach throughout a cabinet. For a special display effect, the interior rear of a cabinet may be covered with a mirrors to further distribute light.
