Drawing on a century of woodworking expertise, Thomasville brings cabinetry to life like no one else can with insights like furniture-finishing techniques that add warmth and depth … distressing to evoke a soothing sense of age … heirlooming to emulate the natural process of wear … and hand-wiped glazes that accentuate the uniqueness of each door style.

Glazed Technique

A professional, premium glaze can add another layer of beauty to your cabinets. First, our craftsmen apply a wood toner, which accentuates thegrain's natural attributes. We then add the glaze by hand, adding depth,dimension and an understated sheen that's guaranteed to endure. Even,consistent coverage produces a subtle appearance, whereas varied coverage produces a more dramatic look. These variations will occur fromdoor to door and cabinet to cabinet. These characteristics are considered desirable features in a glazed finish. Depending on the complexity of the cabinet door's design, glaze may collect in corners and grooves, adding a warm sense of authencity.

Glazing is available on a variety of cherry, maple, alder, rustic alder and hickory door styles. (Shown in Amaretto Creme on Plaza Maple.)

Distressing Technique

Our distressing technique creates a rustic-like finish with unique and appealing imperfections, such as dents, worm holes, chisel marks and other natural wear signs that create a look similar to those of time-wornantiques. Distressing characteristics are more visible with glazed finishes.

Distressing is available on these door styles: Belgrade, Braeburn (shown), Braddock,Camden, Hillcrest, Plaza and Villa.

Heirlooming Technique

Our heirlooming process applies selective sanding that exposes underlying wood to emulate the natural process of wear.

Heirlooming is available on these Maple finishes: Amaretto Crème Glaze, Baltic Bay (shown), Black Paint, Corn Silk, Marine, Moss, River Rock and Toasted Almond Glaze.
