We aim to help you find the perfect finish in the least stressful way possible. To do this, we offer a wide variation of finishes and species of wood to produce the design of your dreams for your home’s aesthetic. Our offered styles include contemporary, rustic, Victorian, colonial shaker, euro-style and mission styles. We also make it a priority to stay aware of design trends to give you the most complete selection of styles possible.
Below we will discuss the different types of finishes that we offer.
Finishes with Glaze
For glaze finishes we offer maple, cherry, birch and walnut wood. The furniture is finished with an aged appearance and sanding methods and then a brown dye is applied to the raised corners and regions to create a browned effect in the wood. A tinted base is then applied and spun by hand. The brown finishes are created by a complicated process that results in a truly unique piece of carpentry each and every time.
The wood species that we offer for these finishes are maple and oak. We apply several highly pigmented layers of semi-opaque dye and allow it to saturate the wood to produce a rich, beautiful color that best showcases the natural beauty of the wood and its natural grain. The characteristics of the underlying wood, however, are less noticeable with painted finishes than they are with tinted finishes.
Because wood expands and contracts naturally, the joints on the doors might experience some cracking in the finish near the joints. This is normally and will have no impact on the strength of the door construction. Most of our painted finishes are only available for maple wood because of its uniform appearance and smooth characteristics.
Painted Finishes with Glass
This style of finish is available for maple, oak, cherry, birch and walnut wood and involves a basic paint being applied to the wood for an even color coverage. A background of colored varnish is then applied by hand, leaving gentle variations of the shade throughout. After that, an accented varnish is brushed by hand into the corners and reinforcements to accentuate the different variations of coloring.
To achieve a more natural appearance, a dyeing color is applied and then rubbed in to the wood to ensure a rich color and uniform covering. The varnish enhances, rather than covers up, the beauty of each type of wood by drawing your eye to its natural features. Because you can see the wood grain, wood knots and mineral veins in the wood, no doors are exactly the same. The finishing process is then completed with a splash of an additional finish color to even things out.
Stain with Glass Finishes
This option is available for maple, oak, cherry birch and walnut species of wood. A base dye is applied to the wood for uniform color coverage, and then a base of varnish is applied by hand to leave varying shades in the corners and reinforcements of the doors. An accented varnish is then brushed by hand into the details to draw attention to the subtle variations in color.
This process includes techniques that are detailed by hand, therefore never producing two identical doors.
This intensive process mimics the subtle ravages of time on the product by simulating the traditional image of well-worn and used furniture. A worn look and excessive sanding are two noted traits of this type of finish. After the sanding is complete, several layers of strongly pigmented dyes are applied to the wood to create a deep, rich color. The stain is semi-opaque, allowing for the perfect amount of natural wood grain to come through.
The corners and edges of doors and drawer fronts are sanded again, to expose the natural beauty of the wood. This old-fashioned technique includes many steps that include a randomly worn-out appearance. Since the details are all applied by hand, no two finishes will be identical.
This type of finish is available for maple, oak, cherry, birch and walnut species of wood. A base color is applied to the wood and then a varnish base is applied by hand to create unique variations in the color of the doors. This is an enhanced varnishing method that increases visual depth and interest in the details.
