We pre-finished these custom cabinets & crown molding prior to installation for a local remodeler.  We used a catalyzed primer and a pigmented conversion varnish.  We also supplied colored putty for the remodeler to do filling of nail holes after installation.

We restored this door which would have been costly to replace for a local remodeler.  There was an ugly metal box that we removed from the door.  We filled the void with new wood and applied new trim around the panel.  We chemically removed the old finish, sanded, stained, and sprayed multiple coats of spar urethane.  The homeowner was very pleased.

The remodeler who brought this door to us had vision!  We chemically stripped off the old coatings from the door and hardware.  We then abrasive blasted the steel hardware, primed it, & painted it black.  The brass above the door handle was polished to a mirror finish and then clear coated.  For the wood we finish sanded, stained the panels one color and the rest of the door another color.  Then we sprayed multiple coats of spar urethane.  Needless to say, the homeowner was shocked with the results!  To be honest, we were impressed with how it turned out also.
