Finishing and Maintenance

Unfinished Oak, Maple, and Cherry

A. Fill all nail holes and splices with matching wood filler. Sand wood filler patches smooth to the veneer surface with 180 grit paper, taking care not to sand through the veneer. Apply stain, sealer and clear finish coat, lightly sanding between coats with 220 grit paper. We recommend applying a light coat of lemon oil or furniture oil to replenish the natural sheen, especially in dry environments. Use of wax polish may cause buildup and dull finish sheen.

Finished Surfaces 

A. Use matching color putty to fill fastener holes. A matching stain kit is included with factory finished product.

Primed Surfaces 

A. It is not necessary to prime stiles, rails, shoe, cap, or casing (or factory-primed panels). After installation, apply one coat of paint to panels. DO NOT SAND STILES, RAILS, SHOE, CAP, OR CASING. Fill in nail holes with a paintable vinyl-based spackle. Finish coat all parts together. Gentle household cleaners may be used, if required.
