Stains are applied to cabinet doors to enhance the natural beauty of the wood, while also adding beautiful color. Cabinet stains can range from light to very dark. Light stains will allow you to see more of the wood's natural character, while darker stains will hide much of the grain, but can create richer color and a more dramatic look.

Cabinet glazes are meant to highlight the different profiled edges on cabinetry, mouldings and accent pieces on Stain and Paint finishes. The wet glaze process is sprayed on the entire cabinet door and is then wiped off, remaining within the profiled areas, yet slightly changing the overall finish color. With the dry glaze application, the cabinet glaze is hand-applied to only to the profiled areas, while the base color remains the same.

Alder Wood Sample
Alder Wood Cabinets

Alder cabinet wood features a straight, fine textured grain, similar to Cherry and Maple.
In its natural state, Alder features a fairly uniform hone color, and sapwood can be distinguished from heartwood, with tight pin knots present occasionally.
Classified as a hardwood, Alder is moderately light in weight and is considerable softer than other Omega hardwood species, allowing it to dent and mar easily. Rustic Alder is also available.

Cherry Wood Sample
Cherry Wood Cabinets

Cherry is a smooth, even-grained hardwood known for its warm, rich character. Heartwood can range from deep red to reddish-brown color. In its natural state, Cherry cabinet wood may have areas that are yellowish, green, and even gray. Cherry "mellows" and darkens with age; exposure to bright or direct sunlight will cause wood to darken and redden significantly. Cherry will have some sapwood, mineral streaking, fine pin holes and pitch pockets, which are all natural details that add to the beauty of Cherry wood. Rustic Cherry is also available.

Maple Wood Sample
Maple Wood Cabinets

Maple cabinet wood is characterized by its smooth, even, and fine grain pattern. Natural Maple has some color variation but is generally more uniform than most hardwoods. Mineral streaks are common in Maple and appear darker when stained. On darker finishes, a distinct mottled look is apparent when a stain is applied.

Oak Wood Sample
Oak Wood Cabinets

One of the stronger hardwoods, Northern Red Oak is known for predominant grain patterns that run from straight lines to arched and pointed variations. Light and dark contrast is noticeable on natural and light finishes. Rustic Oak is also available.

Pecan Wood Sample
Pecan Wood Cabinets

Known as one of the stronger hardwoods, Pecan is characterized by dramatic color variations ranging from white sapwood to reddish brown heartwood — even on the same piece of wood. As Pecan ages, it will "mellow," making the color variation less apparent. Expect to see pin holes, knots, burl and color streaks in Pecan, and due to variations in wood, expect that some cabinet parts will have fewer characteristics than others.

QuarterSawn Oak Wood Sample
QuarterSawn Oak

Quartersawn Oak cabinet wood is cut from white oak trees and features finer grain patterns due to the way that the actual cuts are made on the log. Cutting at a 90 degree angle from the growth rings on an Oak log, producing a vertical and uniform grain that results in a beautiful look representative of Stickley and Mission styling that is currently in high demand.
