All finishes are not created equal. Multiple hand and machine sanding and oven-baked drying operations are used on every finish to insure long-lasting quality and durability. Wood-Mode/Brookhaven use a process of wetting the wood to raise the grain, along with one-and two-step hand staining, producing deep colors with enhanced wood grain and beauty. Uniform color in the wood is achieved with toning and spray staining applications. Catalyzed sealer, hand-sealer sanding, spec distressing and catalyzed matte or standard sheen varnish spray operations are used to create lifetime durability and beauty on our stained custom cabinet wood products. Wood-Mode’s catalyzed oven-baked varnish top coat with ultraviolet screen inhibitors provides maximum resistance to scuffing, dents, moisture, UV fade and most household chemicals. The opaque finishes receive high quality sealer, primer and catalyzed color coats to insure beauty and lifetime durability. An extensive hand-sanding operation is performed between each spray application. A multi-step hand-buffing process creates the smoothest, richest patina imaginable.
The Short Story or Bottom Line
At the heart of Wood-Mode/Brookhaven’s finishing process is a deep-penetrating stain. Over it, a baked –on sealer and catalytic varnish create a protective barrier up to 60% deeper than those of other manufactures. The result? A satiny-smooth, easy-to-clean finish that brings out all the beauty of the wood grain and provides superior protection against scratches, stains, and household chemicals.
