Our woodworkers and carpenters use only the highest quality materials and products during construction of your kitchen cabinets or furniture. During the design phase our woodworking designers will advise you on wood materials. We will try and match your design and aesthetic ideas while ensuring the quality of the finished product. We pride ourselves on building products that last. We accomplish this by using the most durable and effective woods. The look of your new cabinets can change from traditional, to rustic, to industrial or contemporary based on what woods and materials we use.
We have several options if you are interested in using raw materials in your new custom kitchen project. ‘In the rough’ wood is wood that is used in its most natural state. This creates a rustic final product. Re-purposed wood is a trend that has gained popularity. We can use wood from any older source and create something amazing out of it. Old barns, paneling and old wood floors can be transformed into works of art. Finished woods are your best bet to create a smooth surface. We love this option for more contemporary looks. We can mix and match materials as well to create a truly unique room or piece of furniture.
The woodworkers at Custom Carpentry Hamilton are professionals at working with softwood. Although softwood is softer, they are not necessarily weaker than hardwood. Cedar can be used in a variety of woodworking projects. It is great for closets and wood chests. We can use fir for some projects. Since it doesn’t have a very interesting grain pattern, it is best used on items you plan finish with paint. Hemlock can be used for a variety of furniture products and is quite durable. Pine is our most common used softwood. Pine is very easy to work with and it can be used in furniture and cabinets.
Hardwoods have a variety of colors, textures and patterns that can create stunning and original furniture or cabinets for your home Hardwood is more expensive than softwood, but you will end up with an heirloom quality piece of furniture. The beauty of these woods may not require staining. Ash is very dense and can be used in a variety of projects. Unfortunately, it has grown in price due to the scarcity of the trees. Cherry has always been a popular option. Cherry holds stains and finishes well and ages beautifully. Cherry is a great option if you plan on keeping your furniture for a long time.
