Our Finish


In our finishing process we use solar heat and cogeneration of electricity toreduce the greenhouse gas emissions emitted. We recycle oursolvents to reduce the waste that we send to MOE certifiedprocessors, giving it a second use/life. The start of a great finish is the preparation, we painstakingly sand and inspect the raw wood with flat beam non-glare inspection lights. These allow us to catch any imperfections or indents before the colour application. In our multistep dye and stain process, Handstone sprays deep penetrating NGR dye on the raw wood, then stain is sprayed on and carefully hand wiped to create an even colourtone. We are very passionate about our colours and the qualityof them. It is evident and defines why the Handstone colour difference is achieved with clear, vibrant colour tones. Before applying the sealer we match and shade the colour to masterboards. Next step is applying the sealer which is post catalyzed. It takes a great deal of time and skill to correctly hand sand thesealer without burning the edges. After the sealer is sanded we apply a post catalyzed varnish. This means the craftsmen add acatalyst to the conversion varnish which kicks off a cross-linking reaction and creates a powerful and tightly blended molecular binding build to the finish. All this is what makes our finish durable and chemical-resistant. In our final steps we inspect and polish the coating to a brilliant luster
