Custom Cabinet Doors Made In Eagle, WI
Uniform color guidelines are monitored very closely with our select grades. Each piece is hand-selected to ensure superior color and grain match for the front of the door. Very few of the natural characteristics of the chosen species will be allowed on the face of the door; they will be allowed on the backside of the door. The backside will not be selected for color nor grain match. Our select grade is highly recommended for a natural finish or when using a light stain color.
Natural characteristics of the chosen species will be allowed in our natural grade throughout the door including color variations between heart and sap. Panel color and grain matching will be less consistent than our select grade and may vary from door to door. The stiles and rails may also vary in color on the same door. Natural characteristics common to the species chosen may also include the following: small pin knots, small mineral deposits, worm tracks, fleck, gum and pitch pockets. Our natural grade is recommended for medium to dark stain colors.
Flat Veneer Panel Doors
Our 1/4″ veneer is on an MDF core and is either noted as RC (rotary cut) or PL (plain sliced). The 1/4″ veneer panels used in our flat panel doors will generally stain darker than the solid wood frame. If color matching is of concern, we recommend using the RP-40 solid wood “reverse panel” in place of the 1/4″ veneer panel for a more uniform stain match.
