Birch – Birch is a type of fine grained wood that has a slightly darker color than maple. It is also durable and can stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. One of the most prized qualities of birch wood is that it takes finishes well. Offering versatility and flexibility in terms of application, birch wood may be stained or treated with faux finishes in order to achieve a more expensive look. Using the right type and color of wood stain, birch wood can also be easily passed off as cherry or maple. However, applying wood stain to birch requires extra care since it is prone to irregular coloring. Compared to other wood species, birch is less expensive.
The patina finish is also a combination of different techniques which involves, over sanding, distressing and glazing. The cabinets are also subjected to heavily distressing using a chisel to produce marks, joint cracks, bird pecks and dry brush and then a coating of glaze is applied to accentuate the details of the door. The result is an aged appearance that is one of a kind.
