Stain

Stained finishes are formulated to enhance the grain and create rich depth and color.  An extremely durable, catalyzed conversion varnish sealer and topcoat are then applied to create a protective surface with a beautiful luster.


Stain/Glaze

Glaze is a semi-transparent color applied over the stain for added dimension and depth.  Along profiles and corners, the glaze highlights and accentuates the details of the door.  Glazing is an artistic, hand-detailing technique that will exhibit unique, subtle variations.


HEIRLOOM

This collection of stain/glaze finishes is hand-detailed to create an “antiqued” appearance with beautiful dimension and depth.  Before finish is applied, corners and edges are softened and the surface of the wood is “distressed” to create an aged and timeworn character. 


HEAVY HEIRLOOM

This collection of stain/glaze finishes is hand-detailed to create an “antiqued” appearance with beautiful dimension and depth.  Before finish is applied, corners and edges are softened and the surface of the wood is “distressed” to create an aged and timeworn character. 


PATINA

This collection of stain/glaze finishes is hand-detailed to create an “antiqued” appearance with beautiful dimension and depth. Before finish is applied, corners and edges are softened and the surface of the wood is “distressed” to create an aged and timeworn character. After the stain/glaze is applied, corners and edges are “shaded” to create a rich “patina”.


HEAVY PATINA

This collection of stain/glaze finishes includes special hand-detailing techniques to create a rustic, timeworn look. Doors and drawer fronts are heavily distressed with chisel marks, joint cracks and rasp marks. After the stain/glaze is applied, corners and edges are “shaded” to create a rich “patina”. This is an artistic, hand-detailed finish that will exhibit unique, subtle variations with each application.


PAINT

Paint finishes are selected for their crisp, classic styling and for use as an accent color.  This full-coverage enamel has a smooth texture on Maple.  When applied to Oak, the texture of the grain is visible.  Wood naturally expands and contracts with seasonal changes in humidity and is more apparent with painted finishes at joints. This is a natural characteristic of painted finishes on wood.


PAINT/ACCENT

Accent is applied to the door only along profiles and corners where it is intended to be visible, to accent the details of the door. The base paint color is not affected. “Accent” is an artistic, hand-detailing technique that will exhibit unique, subtle variations.


PAINT/GLAZE

Glaze is a semi-transparent color applied over the paint to create a subtle wash of color with added dimension and depth.  Along profiles and corners, the glaze highlights and accentuates the details of the door.  Glazing is an artistic, hand-detailing technique that will exhibit unique, subtle variations.


PAINT/GLAZE/RUB THRU/DISTRESS

Glaze is a semi-transparent color applied over the paint to create a subtle wash of color with added dimension and depth. Along profiles and corners, the glaze highlights and accentuates the details of the door. The finish is then rubbed and worn on corners and edges to create an antiqued appearance.


COUNTRY TRADITIONS

This collection of painted finishes is designed to look like a family heirloom with layers of finish and hand-detailing.  Corners are softened and the surface is distressed to create an appearance of age.  A base stain color is applied before the paint.  Corners and edges are rubbed and worn to reveal the underlying stain color.  This artistic finish application will exhibit unique, subtle variations.
