I am definitely not an expert in cabinet restoration but sometimes I get lucky and have a little success. Here's some before and after photos of a Canadian GE KL-76 I restored recently. It was old and tired looking so I stripped and lightly stained it to bring out the grain.

It sure looks a lot better.
Did you use toned lacquer on the dark areas, and clear lacquer as the final coat?

Just used black rust-o-leum paint on the trim and one thin coat of poly to finish.
