We list about two dozen wood species in stock (with others available for special order). Each of these species is offered in a variety of different finishes.
Generally speaking, it makes sense to use our paint-grade wood or MDF or hybrid (wood frame/MDF panel) choices for painted finishes. For stain colors, each of our stain-grade or premium-grade woods offers something different in terms of grain patterns or coloration or aging.
You'll see that some of our available options are 'not recommended' because of difficulty in producing consistent results.
These finish combinations are recommended for their color consistency and reproducibility.
These finish combinations lack color consistency, and highlight negative qualities(machine marks, open end grain, etc). Products with these traits will not be considered defective. A surcharge will be added for the additional labor.
Computer monitors vary, so determining color from a picture on this or any other website is not recommended. We recommend that you order a sample kit, sample swatch or sample cabinet door with your color choice(s) before finalizing your order.
Finish Sample Kits are available for many of the most popular wood species and for the Colourtone finishes. Individual sample swatches may be ordered for any color. Contact your Account Representative for details and pricing.
Cabinet Front Frames and many of our mouldings and specialty products can be made to match from any of the woods above, except MDF/RTF. (Rustic Knotty series will be matched with the front frames using the standard grade of the same wood.)
