Kitchen remodeling can either be a simple and fun process where your kitchen ideas come to life, or it can be a complete nightmare. Not only can the upgrades to your kitchen enhance your living space, but it can increase a home’s value drastically. However the communication and directions given to a contractor can potentially make or break any kitchen remodeling project. Continue reading »
We specialize in a broad range of classic finishes, painted finishes and glazes. Our multi-step, finish process uses penetrating stains, hand-sanded sealer, and protective catalyzed top coat to produce a premium finished surface, hard and long-lasting.
- Hardwoods used in the manufacture of Kabinart’s doors, drawer fronts, and face frames are selected from the finest oak, maple, and cherry available.
- Parts are sanded with a four-step process to provide a consistently smooth surface absent of any cross grain sanding.
- Each part is thoroughly cleaned of all dust particles and inspected prior to the start of the finish application.
- The first coat of custom-formulated stain is applied to tone and balance color and grain.
- A second custom-formulated stain coat is immediately applied to deepen color and ensure complete coverage.
- Following the second stain coat, parts are hand rubbed to bring out the beauty of the hardwood.
- Parts are air-dried and inspected for correct color.
- A first coat of durable catalyzed sealer is applied to all surfaces.
- Parts are oven-cured to activate catalyst, providing a durable baked-on finish.
- Surfaces are hand-sanded with extra-fine sandpaper, wiped clean of dust particles, and inspected for quality.
- The first catalyzed topcoat is applied to all surfaces.
- Parts are again oven-cured to activate the hardening properties of the catalyzed finish.
- An even coat of glaze is hand applied to the entire surface of the part.
- Using a special proprietary process unique to Kabinart, the glaze is partially removed, leaving behind a thin transparent glaze coat over the door, slightly tinting the entire surface. Heavier glazing remains in all ornamental turnings and grooves to give the part the desired specialty glazed finish.
- The glazed parts are allowed to air-dry for a minimum of twelve hours.
- The parts are again cleaned to remove any microscopic dust particles and a final catalyzed sealer is applied to all surfaces.
- A third trip through the oven again activates the necessary chemical change in the catalyzed material.
- Parts are again sanded, wiped, and inspected prior to receiving the final topcoat.
- The final catalyzed topcoat is applied to all surfaces and receives its final trip through the ovens to complete the strong, hardened, premium catalyzed finish.
- Parts receive their final inspection and are hand-polished prior to completion of cabinet assembly.
