- Finish will be 5-degree (matte) sheen.
- The oak log is cut in quarters first. Then each quarter is turned and cut again. This process is repeated until the right board size is achieved.
- The growth rings create a straighter grain pattern that is not as thick as the grain pattern of plain sawn oak wood.
- The rift cut offers more stability and resistance to cupping and warping. Both oak that is plain sawn and rift cut are strong and full of durability. But rift cut oak offers a higher degree of stability and will expand and contract less in response to humidity.
- The colors in rift cut oak’s heartwood and sapwood are beautiful oak colors that include various shades of white to medium brown with the heartwood including some pink hues.
- The unique rift cutting method produces a straighter grain and creates unique markings. These markings include medullary rays and flecks.
- Medullary rays are also called “tiger marks” or “pith rays.” They are caused by plant cells that let sap move freely throughout the tree trunk. When the wood is rift cut, the cells create these unique markings that often show up in wavy patterns, creating a decorative feature in the wood.
- Doors, drawer fronts, and finished ends on the kitchen perimeter and on the island will be painted maple in Sherwin Williams Calico Blue.
- Finish will be 5-degree (matte) sheen.
Westwood Fine Cabinetry cabinets have been finished with high quality wood finishing system. Cared for properly, these cabinets will remain both beautiful and functional for many years to come.
- Remove dust: Dust buildup, which is made of airborne particles, may scratch or dull the surface if not removed correctly. Simply wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a solution of mild detergent and water.
- Clean: Fingerprints, cooking fumes, smoke, residue, etc. accumulating on any finished surface. None of these contaminants will harm our finish, but they should periodically be removed to restore the finish to its original luster. Just wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a non-wax containing polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid the use of ammonia-based product or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time. The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills; however, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems.
- Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity can cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself. These should be avoided. Following these simple steps will keep your wood cabinets looking like new for many years.
- Do not use abrasive cleaners on any melamine or wood surface.
- After any cleaning procedure, other than water and soap, always wipe cabinets dry and follow up with water and mild soap solution.
- Always keep excessive moisture away from seams or joints.
