Though we have the ability to work with virtually any wood species, some species that we work with and accompanying descriptions are as follows:
A straight grained wood species with a uniform color extending from light tan to burnt sienna. Takes stain well and darkens as it ages. Easy to distress, availability to choose wood with higher concentration of knots and character marks. Alder can be stained to resemble Cherry.
Straight, or slightly wavy, close grained, or slightly wavy with even texture. Heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown with nearly white sapwood. It can be stained to resemble mahogany or walnut.
A uniquely textured hardwood, distinguishable in appearance with a warm pink hue. Cherry may contain natural features such as pits and mineral stains. As cherry ages it acquires a rich patina as it darkens & warms over time, with the sap wood presenting a pale yellowish hue. The ability to choose pieces with higher concentrations of mineral stains, knots, and other unique cherry characteristics is an option & popular when achieving a distressed style.
Strong and durable, this hardwood has a very subtle grain to it making it an excellent choice & standard at the Amelia Cabinet Company when it comes to painted cabinetry. The species tends to have a light creamy tan color to it. It is a more dense wood possessing the occasional mineral stains, birds-eye, and fiddle back. There are variations of this specie available possessing more grain pattern qualities than others.
A more aggressive long grained hardwood species is light brown in appearance with hints of pink hues. Grain tends to be open with long visible rays. There are several different species of oak grown within the US.
A straight grained, soft wood which has a white or pale yellow appearance to it. Visible often large knots can be seen in this species and used to achieve a particular traditional cabin feel.
Highly desired, this fine grained hardwood presents its self from a dark tan to a deep brown, with creamy white sapwood. Walnut is typically a straight grained species and darkens over time. European walnut is lighter in color and slightly finer in texture than American black walnut.
The use of reclamation lumber is an option at the Amelia Cabinet Company. The reuse of beautiful sometimes century old lumber, creates a stunning and unique finished product.
We also have the ability to finish each product in a number of ways, including:
The Amelia Cabinet Co. possess a sustainable environmental company vision which has helped shape the nature of the company and the processes by which the furniture is manufactured without sacrificing quality and durability. Switching from chemically induced catalyzed paints to a more natural waterborne paint system is just one example. The ability to match any Benjamin Moore paint color allows for endless possibilities.
Several different stain options are available. This largely depends on the species of wood chosen and the aesthetic desired as every stain possesses a particular percent opacity to which the grain can be read and understood or remain concealed.
A technique that is used to whiten wood. Typically the grain of the wood is raised then rubbed with the pickling or whiting stain. Tends to highlight the woods natural beauty and can be used in combination with painted finishes to give an antique feel to the furniture.
Quite the opposite to pickling, glazing is the technique used to darken the overall appearance. Similar in process to pickling, the wood is rubbed with a glazing or blackened stain. Can be used to darken the woods pores or give the furniture an antique feel.
A common technique for giving furniture a weathered aesthetic. There are many different possibilities to successfully achieve this technique. Commonly seen to achieve a classical furniture taste is a black paint with a caramel sand-through as it highlights edges and surfaces.
Style used to create pieces of furniture appear much older than they actually are. The artisans at Amelia Cabinet Co. have developed a process for creating rustic one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. Cherry is often the species of choice when it comes to natural distressing although this processes is also common with other painted and stained species of wood too. This finish may also be combined with other popular techniques. There are three main levels of distressing available.
