Our Finishing Process

When wood cabinets are finished correctly they become a beautiful, stunning element in your home. A quality finish evokes a feeling of hominess that will put a smile on your face every time you walk into your kitchen or bath. Our belief is that a quality finish takes time and it takes effort. We don’t believe in shortcuts.

All of our beautiful finishes begin with the same ingredients – select grade hardwood and finish grade plywood. The best finishing process in the world is useless if applied to a subpar surface, so all of our cabinetry components are prepped for finishing and inspected by hand prior to finishing. From there, depending on the finish you choose, your cabinetry may go through 8, 10 or 14 steps in our factory so we can lay down the most beautiful, smooth and durable finish possible. “Baking” a finish is necessary to achieve the most durable finish, so all of our finishes require the cabinetry component to go through our industrial oven at least twice.

We not only stand apart in our use of materials but also the way in which we use them. While other cabinet manufactures are satisfied using shortcuts such as using dry glazes, penned-on glaze (markers), using paint instead of varnish, or failing to properly seal their stains, we take pride in handcrafting every component that goes into your kitchen.
