Custom Cabinetry

Selecting the right custom kitchen cabinets can be one of the most important decisions during your kitchen remodel project.  We pride ourselves on providing only the best semi-custom and custom cabinets to our customers. Products we offer in this category include factory made custom and semi-custom cabinets, which are some of the finest quality cabinets available. These cabinets are customizable in nearly every aspect, give you actual wood exteriors, and come with a baked-on catalytic conversion varnish finish. This hard and durable finish will not degrade over time and is always superior to even the best finish that is site-applied. Catalytic conversion varnish finish resists basic foods and acids which makes it easier to clean and maintain. Application of this finish requires specialized and expensive machinery which you will not find in your local cabinet maker's shop. This is the only finish that carries lifetime warranty.

Wood Characteristics

Maple

Maple is a dense, straight-grained hardwood with uniform coloring. When stained, Maple can have a mottled appearance and small mineral streaks. Maple will age slightly over time.
Rustic Maple is hand selected to have more pronounced variations of its natural wood characteristics. You'll find greater color variation, more noticeable graining, and additional knots, mineral streaks, burls and pinholes.

Cherry

Cherry is a rich, premium hardwood. Coloring can range from pinkish brown, white, green or yellow. Cherry typically has sapwood, pitch pockets, streaks and pin knots and will darken with age.

Alder

Alder is a hardwood that is lighter in weight and softer than other hardwoods. Alder has a fine, straight grain similar to Cherry and Maple with a uniform honey color. Some tight knots are typically present. Alder stains well across the full color spectrum.

Walnut

Walnut is a premium hardwood that has long been prized for its rich beauty, warmth, and strength. The grain is generally straight and open, but sometimes has wavy or curly patterns. Color can vary from creamy white to light or chocolaty brown, occasionally with darker sapwood streaks. Walnut will "mellow" and lighten as it ages.

Oak

Red Oak is known for its strength and stability and has a prominent open grain. Oak ranges in color from white to yellow to reddish brown. Small pin knots and minor mineral streaking are present. Graining may vary from closely knit to a sweeping arch pattern.

Quartersawn Oak

Quartersawn Red Oak (QSO) is achieved through the old fashioned method of cutting logs where the logs are first cut into four quarters and then cut on the diagonal from the center of the tree out towards the edges. This method is what gives QSO its distinctive straight line grain pattern. QSO will have medullary ray flecks. This fleck pattern may appear reflective and lighter than the surrounding grain after it’s stained.

Hickory

Hickory is a strong hardwood with dramatic color variations and grain patterns. Color can vary from white to deep brown in the same piece of lumber, evening out slightly over time. Hickory will have some knots, mineral streaking, pin holes and burls.

Knotty Pine

Knotty Pine is a softwood with a yellowish tone and numerous knots. Knots range in size and color from deep brown to bright red. Pine darkens or “mellows” with age.

 

Finish Descriptions

Stains

Stained finishes enhance the natural characteristics of each individual wood species by enriching natural graining and color variation. Stain colors range from light to dark tones and enhance the style and feel of your home. Unfinished cabinetry is also available.

Wash Stains

Our wash finish fits uniquely between a stain and an opaque. The pigments in this semi-transparent stain are light enough to allow the subtle, underlying wood grain to show through and yet gives a soft wash of color overall. Wash stains are available on Cherry, Rustic Cherry, Alder, Rustic Alder, Quartersawn Oak, Oak and Rustic Oak.

Opaque Enamels

Opaque finishes give you flexibility. Depending on the application, opaques can fit any style. Opaques have the ability to add unexpected pops of color, heighten the luxury factor, or even give a casually aged appearance. Our opaque enamel finish is a catalyzed conversion enamel applied in a 7-step process to achieve a multi-layer and highly durable finish. We use an enamel finish as it is considered one of the hardest in the industry.

Glazes

Glazed finishes are designed to bring out dimension and depth. Hand applied over the top of your stain or opaque color choice, glazes build up in corners and edges, accentuating the finest details. This effect will also deepen your color choice giving an overall warmer tone. Glaze finishes are especially dramatic on the more detailed door styles. Not all glaze techniques or glaze colors are available on every stain and opaque color.

Detailed Glaze Descriptions

The images below show how each glaze technique produces a unique finish. The first image is an Ivory opaque door with no glaze. The next three images all have a Wheat Glaze applied using one of our three glaze techniques.

Standard Glaze

Woodland uses a hand-applied, wet glaze. Glaze is applied to all finished components and is designed to build-up in the profiles and corners while the rest of the component is wiped clean. Wet glazes will slightly tone the base color. Available on stains and opaques.

Brushstroke Glaze

Choose this finish for a truly artistic look. It starts by first applying a Standard Glaze finish as described above to achieve accents in the profiles and corners. Then subtle brushstroke lines are hand applied on all flat surfaces. Available on select Maple opaques.

Feather Glaze

A softer, more delicate glaze finish. Feather Glaze gives you subtle, hand applied glaze lines on all flat surfaces without the heavier glaze build up in the profiles and corners. Some slight build-up will occur. Available on select Maple opaques.

Reclaimed Patina

Reclaimed Patina is an all-natural finish technique that accelerates wood's natural aging process to give you the look of wood that's been weathered by the elements. Each wood reacts to the Patina finish process in its own unique way, resulting in a completely different look based on the wood species selected. Additionally, this finish technique is characterized by greater color tone variations overall so no two doors or components will be alike for a truly one-of-a-kind look. Available on select door styles in Rustic Hickory, Knotty Pine and Rustic Oak.

Urban Elements

Create a modern foundation with sleek, linear door styles available in textured melamine and straight grain wood veneer. Choose from horizontal grain (HG) or vertical grain (VG) pattern. With Urban Elements less is more. Wherever you fall in the spectrum of Modern design, use cabinetry as an element to express your innovative sensibilities and to set the stage for an understated but oh-so-dramatic style statement. Create a space that is clean and streamlined while still retaining an inviting warmth.

Textured Melamine Colors

Straight Grain Veneer
