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 heirloom technique creates a naturally worn-to-the-wood appearance that says “old world charm.” Glazing will enhance areas of wood exposed by oversanding to take on the darker characteristics of the applied glaze for a finish that is warm and perfectly aged.
