It all starts with lumber processing at Wood-Mode’s highly integrated manufacturing facility. Wood-Mode’s own kilns perform an intensive lumber drying process that achieves the optimum moisture content required for the necessary stability of its custom cabinetry, furniture and architectural elements. Age-old craftsmanship is combined with the precision and accuracy of modern technology to provide meticulous control throughout the manufacturing process.
The finest woods are selected to ensure superior quality
Cherry: A richly elegant hardwood, characterized by a close grain pattern, gum streaks and subtle color variations. Cherry tends to darken with age—a natural process that enhances its warmth and charm.
Knotty Cherry: All of the natural character of Cherry, including knots and checks, gives it a true rustic Cherry Look.
Maple: A finely grained hardwood favored for its distinctive burl patterns.
Heartwood Maple: The rustic natural beauty of Maple, including its mineral streaks, checks, and heavier burl, is usually found in the wood that comes from the center of the tree.
Oak: A hardwood valued for its resilience and prominent grain, beauty and strength.
Pine: A warm softwood with swirling grain and random knots, purposely distressed to give it a softened antique quality.
In addition to the above wood species, decorative rattan, herringbone, olive ash burl, and bird's-eye Maple veneers are available as inserts.
The next step in achieving outstanding durability is choosing the just right components for each specific function. For example, while solid wood is the ideal material for raised panel doors and frame faces, it isn’t always best for sides, tops, bottoms and shelves where strength, stability and warp resistance are essential.
The company produces two full lines of customized cabinetry under the Wood-Mode and Brookhaven names, each with a multitude of storage options. Both feature solid wood doors and multi-step finishing processes, and both are available in traditional framed construction—where the door is mounted on a front frame—and contemporary frameless construction—where there is no face frame so the door is mounted on the cabinet case itself.
Our extensive selection of more than 85 standard wood finish colors, two standard finish sheen levels and 30 standard laminates satisfies a broad range of decorating tastes and lifestyles. In addition, Wood-Mode will custom match unique finishes to customers’ specifications.
