Woods and Colors

Choose your favorite wood from American Cherry, Red Oak, Mahogany, or Maple
Choose between natural color or wood beautifully stained in rich wood tones.


Cherry is perhaps the most popular wood, and with good reason. It has a wonderful grain and color. You can choose from 3 different finishes for cherry.

  • Natural Cherry
  • Medium Cherry
  • Dark Cherry

Natural Cherry has no stain, but will darken naturally over time into a rich chestnut colored reddish brown.

Medium Cherry is similar to the color of old cherry.
Dark Cherry is the color of many old cherry antiques and is what many people prefer.

Maple is a classic cabinet hardwood, left natural with no stain it is a pale blonde tan.
Very clean and light.

Dark maple is a deep brown color, very rich like coffee, but without the reddish tone of Dark Cherry.

Dark Mahogany is a striking wood that often has wonderful ribbon patterns as well as great color. Mahogany looks best when stained a deep brown like the old growth wood that is no longer available. We use the highest quality aniline dyes for this.
They are expensive, but they are worth the cost. They are not only very colorfast, but even more important they are very transparent, even when used in a strong, dark tint. They will not  cover up or conceal the grain of the wood like off the shelf pigment stains do.
