  • How do you maintain a consistent stain color?

    There are a lot of aspects to achieving a consistent but natural looking stain finish.  Different species and even cuts of woods have different qualities to their grain, different colors, and varying levels of hardness and absorption.  Therefore, you should match your selected stain color with sample pieces matched to control samples provided for each species and cut of wood used, and have said samples compared and approved by the owner, designer, or architect.  In addition, during the process of staining, the painter needs to use the approved stain product with the proper amount of material and proper technique to match the approved sample.  It may be necessary to apply more stain in spots where stainable wood putty has been used, or in areas where the wood has varying levels of porosity and the color is too blotchy.  Sometimes mixing in some stain into the base coat of sealer helps with finish color consistency.  At any rate, since the beauty of wood is in its natural variations of knots and grain, it is up to the owner, designer or architect to determine what look is desired in the sample approval stage.

  • Can our finished cabinetry and casework be re-stained and refinished?

    Probably, unless it is laminate or something else not wood.  Very often, cabin can be refinished by sanding or applying an environmentally compliant paint and varnish remover.  Then, we apply stain, clear sanding sealer, and clear lacquer to the color and finish sheen that is selected.  Again, with stain we recommend an approved sample before proceeding with the entire project.  With existing cabinetry, a door can be removed and used to match the color and create the sample.  Also of note, to achieve a stain color, that stain color must be darker than the existing wood once the surface is sanded or retuned to bare wood with the use of chemical remover.  And light or moderately light stain colors may be difficult to achieve, or require a more opaque stain hiding the grain of the wood.
