Our Species and Styles

Natural hardwoods are some of nature’s most beautiful and enduring resources. And each species adds its own unique element of beauty to your home.  At Cabinet Specialties, we offer many longtime favorites, including:

  • Cherry, Maple, Quartersawn White Oak, Knotty Alder, Hickory, Red Oak (Oak), and Walnut.

We are also well known for finding you the exotic species that are perfect for your custom design, such as:

It’s important to note that a significant factor affecting the final appearance of your cabinetry will be the finish that you choose.  Accordingly, please view our door gallery to see many species and finish combinations that are available.

Our Finishes

Finishes have a significant impact on the ultimate appearance of the underlying wood species.  And it can be said that applying a finish is as much an art as it is a science.  Temperature & humidity control, precise measurements, surface preparation, quality ingredients, a skilled craftsman’s hand, and so much more affect the end results.  Some common applications include:

  • Standard stains and finishes
  • Painting
  • Glazing
  • Distressing
  • Crackle finishes
  • Rub-through
  • Worm holing

Accordingly, our finishers are highly skilled craftsmen trained in the multi-step process involved in applying the finish(es) of your choice.  In fact, some finishes can involve as many as 12 or 14 steps.  And distressing and rub-through techniques introduce additional steps to the process.

Importantly, we choose finishes that are environmentally friendly.  Our paints and finishes are Non-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds).  Plus, plywood used in construction is low- or formaldehyde-free for your family’s protection.
