Cabinets are different from guitars but learning how a finish is applied is never a bad thing.

As my teacher told me , it isn't what you put on , as much as what it is you let on .

Another book I find to be very good at explaining the chemistry of different finishes is "Gunstock Finishing and Care," by A. Donald Newelll. It does suffer from being rather dated -- it was published in 1952 or something -- and it may be out of print, but I've found it helpful.

And of course, a gunstock is not a guitar...
