The Finish Process
HAND SANDING – All surfaces are progressively sanded smooth, starting with #120 grit sandpaper, and finishing with 220 grit sandpaper.
CONDITIONING – Equalizer stain is applied to balance the base color of the wood. This is sometimes called sap staining and is the initial stain coat that is applied to diminish the contrast in wood tone between the lighter color sapwood and the darker heartwood.
STAINING – A deep penetrating stain is applied to establish consistent uniform color.
SEALER – A clear wood sealer is applied over the base stain.
SEALER SANDING – All surfaces are again hand sanded to 400 grit providing a smooth, consistent surface to accept topcoat
TONING – The application of addition color if applicable.
TOP COAT – Final application of a top coat finish is applied. This top coat is formulated to provide protection against moisture, UV fade, and household chemicals and exceeds all specifications required by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (ANSI/KCMA A161.1-1995).
We pay special attention to each job to ensure every detail is handled. We go above and beyond other finishers.
