Prime first, then touch up after putty, no need to prime the caulk, just paint it

Sorry to interrupt, I'm Mark here and just wanted to jump in. Doesn't this solution depend on how much grain you want showing?  Sorry I'm such a newbie with this here, I found some old paint in storage and just wondering what to do with it, so I'm pretty much digging out old wood and having a go with it.

While painting new wood cabinet the first things you need to do is apply a coat of primer. Once the primer is dry go around and fill any nail holes or imperfections you want to be filled, fill them with wood putty.

Totally agree ..simple sound advice, throwing a white or colored prime coat will show you all imperfections that need addressed
I don't do this for a hobby and I'm damn sure I don't need the practice
