Wooden Hammer Ltd. cabinets can be made from virtually any species of wood, or combination of woods. We hand-select our woods for their quality, color, and grain pattern. Hardwoods that are unique to our region of northwest Michigan, alder, beech, cherry, maple, and quarter-sawn oak are the most commonly used materials, but the choice is entirely up to you. We have access locally to many exotic species from all over the world. Just let us know what you want and we can provide samples for you.

Great finishes begin with great surface preparation. Labor-intensive hand sanding is Wooden Hammer’s standard procedure. After the surface is prepared, we hand-apply our custom-blended finish for depth and beauty that equals the look and feel of fine furniture. A series of special catalyzed sealer and topcoats are then applied and hand sanded between each coat. The final step is hand buffing the finish, then the entire cabinet is inspected to meet our self-imposed rigorous quality control standards.

We searched the globe for finishing products that would provide the level of durability, reliability, and beauty that we require at Wooden Hammer Ltd. What we discovered was a very fine European brand that has become the standard for our product line, and guarantees our customers a lifetime of beautiful performance.

For a more unique look, a wide variety of artistic multi-step finishes are also available to accentuate the fine details of your particular kitchen design. Distressing, rub through for that aged effect, and glazing or highlighting can add character to a room. Ask one of our kitchen designers for a sample of our artistic finishes, or send us an example of what you would like to match.

A word about Wooden Hammer Ltd. colors. We have a vast array of stain, paint, and dye colors to choose from. However, all of our colors are created in-house, and we purposely do not buy any standard colors from paint manufacturers. We mix raw pigments to match any particular color choice. That way, we can keep each customer’s color information on file for future reference in case they want to add more cabinetry or furniture, or heaven forbid, some damage occurs to their Wooden Hammer Ltd. products.
