Pretty sure I read here, but can not find it, that I should scuff sand and prime with BIN shellac. Am I remembering this correctly? Cabinet is builder grade oak that I relocated to garage so I do not need high visibility kitchen finish. Will probably top coat with left over SW pro classic or SW Cashmere medium lustre. Thanks.

If the cabinets have a finish on them you need to use a solvent based primer to insure good adhesion. BIN is a good primer for this. I generally give the cabinets a light sanding, wipe down with a liquid deglosser and then apply the primer. Expect to apply 2 coats of finish. Sanding lightly between coats should give a nicer looking finish along with promoting good adhesion.
