Cabinet Finishing

Black Willow Woodworks offers any type of finish, color, or style you desire, whether it is traditional, rustic, or something way outside the box. Our reputation for cabinet finishes is superior and we get requests for just about anything imaginable, whether it is the stressed wood look or a color that is way outside the norm, we will come up with just the right finish and look.

Black Willow Woodworks uses dye stains, oil-based staining, and colored water-based paints which allows us to match any color pallet. We also offer distressing and glazing to enhance and add character to your cabinets.

Each cabinet job is handled individually and is finished using top quality products. Your cabinets will arrive at your home free of all VOC’s keeping your new cabinets “eco-friendly.”

The Finishing Process

All surfaces are progressively sanded smooth, starting with #120 grit sandpaper, and finishing with 220 grit sandpaper.

Equalizer stain is applied to balance the base color of the wood. This is sometimes called sap staining and is the initial stain coat that is applied to diminish the contrast in wood tone between the lighter color sapwood and the darker heartwood.

A deep penetrating stain is applied to establish consistent uniform color.

A clear wood sealer is applied over the base stain.

All surfaces are again hand sanded to 400 grit providing a smooth, consistent surface to accept topcoat.

The application of addition color if applicable

Final application of a topcoat finish is applied. This topcoat is formulated to provide protection against moisture, UV fade, and household chemicals and exceeds all specifications required by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (ANSI/KCMA A161.1-1995)

We pay special attention to each job to ensure every detail is handled. We go above and beyond other finishers.
