I'm a huge fan of maple for cabinets. I'd like to do mine, the bulkheads, and the closet doors in maple.
I think that you need to put up some pictures.
Not exactly the thought you were looking for, though. I really can't speak about the OSMO product, it's a new one to me. I've always used a paste wax, usually Minwax
. I made kaleidoscopes and sold them on the arts & crafts circuit and in shops. Final steps were sanding the finish with 1000 grit paper, burnishing that with a paper towel, and then applying Minwax. Beautiful finish.
Seriously though, let's see some photos of those maple cabinets!
