Cabinet Finishing

 

Finishing is one the most important feature of a good cabinet or furniture. Some times the one that people pay most attention looking at a wood furniture. Unfortunately, we have seen kitchen cabinets well constructed, but when it comes to .

 

The most important aspects of finishing and different options:

Selection of the wood specie -  Not every wood is good to be stained or finished in any color. In general we have seen that in Florida there is a tendency to favor Maple for cabinet doors and drawers, but in most cases it is not a good wood to be stained, and for this reason much less used up north in the USA. For example for very little more, American Cherry gives much better results, color depth, nicer grains, no blotchiness and richer wood look. The same for other nice species like walnut, sapele, alder, mahogany and many others.

Clear coats -  Just like on your car, the clear coat is the one that protects your cabinets from the elements like, house hold chemicals, water, scratches and ware and tear. Regular lacquer which is what most cabinet shops use, is a reasonable good product for furniture but not the best for kitchen cabinets that are much more exposed to chemicals, ware and constant use. For kitchens and bathrooms we like to use conversion varnish that is a catalyzed varnish ( 2 parts ) with much higher content of solids.
