To understand how we choose our many extraordinary wood species that eventually live in your home, you first have to understand that not all trees are good enough to become Bremtown cabinetry.
We comb the planet for the noblest, the strongest, the sweetest selection of hardwoods and softwoods—everything from the 17 standard and rustic choices of our 500 Semi-Custom Series to the harder to get specialty woods and exotic veneers of the 700 Custom Series. Amazing varieties, each chosen for the unique beauty and history written into each tree. With our extensive resources, we can offer or match nearly any specie you seek—not kidding, even driftwood.
In the same way you’re particular about selecting a higher quality cut of meat, at Bremtown we’re just as intentional about the way we cull the choicest wood that will become your masterpiece cabinetry. It’s both visual and textural, a detailed examination plank by plank.
Not only is each specie different in density and texture and color, but each tree is different within any given specie. We look at things like grain patterns, often dramatic color variations, naturally occurring mineral streaks, knots—and know just where to place each cut, depending on the specie and desired effect. Why is this important? You want to choose the cabinetry that’s already been chosen by experienced craftsmen. We have over 33 years of knowing what to look for and what to do with it to bring it into glorious submission, slowly revealing its most noble wood characteristics and sealing them in for you to enjoy for a lifetime.
While you can find good-quality cabinets locally, there’s no comparison when it comes to the artistry of Bremtown finishes. All done by hand. Each style a specialty unto itself. To give you an idea, our finish process may start with stain then artfully build upon it with hand-rubbed layers of glazes. Or glaze-over-paint and sand-through. Or stain-glaze-more glaze. We’ll do any technique to get just the right look you’re after.
And that’s just the coating. There are added surface techniques such as highlighting, fly specks, crackle, splat patterns, brush marks, silver or gold gilding and rub-through finishes, as well as physical distressing—including rasping, chipping, random knife at joints, crack and worm holes, worn corners, chain dents, splits and weathering. This is why our cabinetry looks so lustrous and deep. This is why people in growing numbers, year after year, choose Bremtown.
In the spirit of ridiculously custom cabinetmaking—even our shipping department does everything by hand—with every cabinet component individually hand-wrapped, packaged, and shipped. It’s a mindset that carries through all we do. The final result of all of the craftsmanship and attention to detail is a cabinet we, and you, can be proud of.
