i have a flor to ceiling unit in my apt. kitchen which i am stripping down to the original wood. it has about 9 coats of paint on it; the last two or three are oil-based. after i strip and sand the wood (which appears to be oak), how can i best protect the wood? is linseed oil enough or should i polyurethane it? also, the silverware drawer just slides on the framework for the cabinet below. there are no sides to mount a rail for wheels to slide on. when i pull it out, it falls down. how can i make this a truly functional drawer?

More of a painter thing than carpentry but I would think a sealer/urathane combination would be what you want for a clear finish.

I doubt very much the paint grade built in is oak though...

For the drawer there are a number of different types of hardware each having they're own applications. Perhaps an underdrawer slide may work best in that situation? A side mout will require adding supports & resizing the drawer itself.

Not much help huh? It's a got be there type question.
