Custom kitchen and bath cabinetry for Northern California
(aka Bradley Custom Cabinets)
BC Cabinet
Brentwood Project Starts 2017

Happy February Everyone
In last months post we focused on the beautiful and popular hand rubbed distressed finish and were picking up where we left off. 

We pride ourselves on our custom finishes and have spent years perfecting the endless variety of one-of-a-kind finishes that set our cabinets apart.  Whether it's a conversion varnish, custom stain, distressed surface or custom paint we can offer this to match any designer specification, owner request or color palate.  

In this installment, we pack up our trucks and head out to Brentwood for an upscale installation for another area contractor. We were onsite for almost 5 days (start to finish) and decided to edit a small series of videos that chronicled the project.  In this video, you get a glimpse of the kitchen before new cabinets were installed.  Stay tuned next month as we get testimonials and show the final installation...which turned out to everyones satisfaction.  


​A wood stain consists of a colorant suspended or dissolved in an agent or solvent. The suspension agent can be water, alcohol, petroleum distillate, or the actual finishing agent (shellac, lacquer, varnish, polyurethane, etc.). Colored or 'stained' finishes, like polyurethane, do not penetrate the pores of the wood to any significant degree and will disappear when the finish itself deteriorates or is removed intentionally.

​Pigments and dyes are largely used as colorants. The difference between the two is in the size of the particles. Dyes are microscopic crystals that dissolve in the vehicle and pigments are suspended in the vehicle and are much larger. Dyes will color very fine grained wood, like cherry or maple, which pigments will not. Those fine-grained woods have pores too small for pigments to attach themselves to. Pigments contain a binder to help attach themselves to the wood.
