Hi all - we are in the process of getting our 1966
Safari road ready. The prior owners did some improvements, and left work for us too. My question is in regards to the wood cabinets. The frames look like blonde wood to me, but the doors are clearly made of oak.
What type of wood was commonly used in the original cabinets? I'm considering refinishing the frames and replacing the tired and water damaged oak doors. I'd like to stay true to the original cabinet wood, if possible. Also wondering what can one do to recreate the 1950s blonde finish.
When we first brought home the trailer we cleaned and oiled the wood. But now it's time to replace the cabinet doors, reupholster the cushions and swap out the curtains. All new and fresh, but striving for an original look. Advice appreciated!!!
