Characteristics of Finishes
Since wood is a product of nature, natural wood from each tree varies in grain, pattern, density and color. The effect of nature’s original beauty on the final color is considered to be the distinctive character so highly sought after for generations. Color match and grain variations will vary because of these material characteristics and should not be considered as defects.
Finishes that enhance these effects on natural wood:
- A white translucent finish that only masks the full range of colors from various grains found naturally in red oak. It provides a slight antique touch.
- Bronze, Bay, and Nutmeg
- Color variations due to minerals and acids from the soil in which the tree was grown will enhance the various components used and will emphasize the different colors with each individual component.
- A more dense white finish on maple wood that softens the grain effect but allows the wood’s natural color variations to be pronounced throughout its construction.
- Natural and Fruitwood
- Natural finish brings out the various grain characteristics of natural wood.
We call your attention to these characteristics because the effects presented in your kitchen may be different from what you visualized.
