Kitchen cabinet prep - teak oil

advice on prep please: oak kitchen cabinets with many layers of teak oil. it really is on quite thick!
best prep advice please to be ready for painting…?

Remove as much of the Teak oil as you can with Meths and wire wool then give it a good mechanical rub down too.
1 possibly 2 coats of shellac primer (BIN et al)
3 coats of Helmi 30 for finish, it may only need 2 depending on opacity as this varies with different colours.

Denib and tack off between coats.

Et voila, you have a new kitchen.

Hope that helps
