Only the finest woods are used for the finest cabinetry! Crystal offers the larget selection of choice
woods. Wood grain patterns display the natural, inherent beauty of wood.*
Premium Alder & Knotty Alder
Differences in color and wood grain are directly related to the life of the tree and variations in forest growing conditions. The color of the wood will always change as it is exposed to light, both natural and artificial, over time. Some species, like cherry, will change dramatically and quickly, others will change subtly and slowly. This will occur even if the wood has a colored stain over its natural beauty.
Engineered & Bamboo Veneers
Engineered veneer has superior color and grain consistency. Bamboo is either natural or carbonized meaning the bamboo is steamed to achieve the darker color.

Crystal’s finishes are resilient and beautiful and are a benchmark feature of our fine cabinetry. Using
artistic, hand-applied techniques and state of the art technology, we have perfected our finishes to be
the finest in the industry.
Enhance the look of your new cabinetry with one of our Signature Finish offerings. Crystal’s Signature
finish elements allow you to add Highlight, Glaze, Brushing, Rub-thru looks and physical distressing to
your base colors. Signature finish options can be mixed and matched and applied on almost any wood
specie. Some Signature finishes are not available in all product lines.
Highlight is hand-wiped, and will leave some build-up in the bead and profiles. Highlight will sometimes
change the overall stain or paint color of your finish and will accentuate natural wood characteristics
as well as physical elements.
Glazing is hand-wiped but is thicker than Highlight and will create a heavier buildup in profiles depending
on your door style choice. Glazing also changes the overall color and accentuates physical elements
and natural wood characteristics
Brushing creates a refurbished look on paint and is available with Van Dyke Brown or Black brushing
on several paint combinations. Depending on the brushing color combination the brushing look will be
subtle or more pronounced.
Rub-thru finish creates the look of wood that has been painted over stain and through time and use
has worn away. Rub-thru includes distressing and is available in several paint over stain combinations.
For one of a kind, worn-looking cabinetry, Crystal offers 7 hand-applied distressing elements that
replicate years of use and/or exposure to your wood and finish: cracking, distressing, gouging, rasping,
scraping, wearing and worm holing. We offer our physical distressing elements as ala carte so you can
choose one element or all of them. Several elements are also available as “heavy,” meaning you get 3 to
6 times more added to your cabinetry.
Crystal’s Signature Select stains encompass true hand-craftsmanship. Each stain features a multi-step,
hand-applied process resulting in a finish that has added depth and a softer feel.
Wire brushing enhances the woods natural grain patterns creating a weathered wood look and feel.
Available on quarter-sawn white oak, knotty alder and premium alder on select door styles.
