Imperial Hardwood Architectural Products   

WOOD IS A ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCT - A RENEWABLE RESOURCE

 

Wood is a natural product.  There will be an inconsistency in grain, texture and appearance in all pieces.

Like all natural products this is what makes wood so desirable.  There can be knots and imperfections.

All wood products are sold as a unfinished building component.  Some sanding, filling, and prepping maybe required

before staining or painting by others.

FINISHING NOTES:

 

FAQ: Is there something you can tell me about commercial wiping stains?

Yes: Always read the manufacturer's warning labels and recommended uses. Remember, Stains are chemicals and they act differently with variable products. Always test a small area of the piece to be stained before doing the entire piece. Staining the back makes a good tester.

Stains can be applied with a brush or rag.  If you use a rag, when you are finished with it do not throw it into a bag (sealed or otherwise), or let multiple rags pile up. 

Stains with linseed oil in them can spontaneously combust - yes catch fire before your eyes!  Dispose of rags inside a metal can filled with water.

Take it to a site for hazardous wastes for disposal once your project is finished.

Never through old stains or solvents down the sink or toilet.

 

 

   All About Alder   

       

 Brief Description: 

 It is a hardwood. The wood is a favorite in Western North America.

 There are two major grades of Alder, Character alder or Knotty Alder which as

 small knots.  Clear Alder is a premium grade product. 

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 Alder is a good alternative to Cherry.  Unlike Cherry it does not change it's color through oxidization as does Cherry. 

 FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain of the base wood?

 Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances

 in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 FAQ: Should I stain before clear Coating?

 All wood has grain variation, marks, knots etc. It is suggested to fill cracks with wood filler, sand and prepare the wood with a pre-stainer.

 A light sanding is applied after the pre-stainer.  Following this use a similar color  to the natural wood before clear coating.

  This will even out the natural inconsistencies of the wood. Finally clear coat, sand between coats, clear coat again a few times.

   All About American Poplar       

    

 Brief Description: 

 It is a hardwood. The tree is fast growing producing mostly white wood.

 However, there are some green streaks in the appearance.

 White is not guaranteed. It can be stained but is generally paint grade.

 It tends to be quite hairy. American Poplar is an excellent base for a wood overlay. 

 

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 Maple is a good alternative for clear coating or staining light colors. This is due to the fact that there is not the green tinge or streaks in Maple

 and the stain does not absorb too deep expanding the wood fibers. Like American Poplar, Maple is also a hardwood in spite of its' name

  implying that it is a softwood (it is softer than Northern Hard maple). Maple is not as hairy, thus a smoother texture to provide even staining. 

 Use Benite or another  wood conditioner to seal up the wood pores before staining. 

 FAQ: Will the American Poplar be consistent in color?

 No: There are green tinges or even pieces that are very green in color.  American Poplar is sold as is within the product mix. 

 Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run.

 No two pieces are identical.  

 FAQ: Should I stain before clear Coating?

   All About Cherry              

    

 Brief Description: 

 It is an expensive hardwood for furniture making.

 The tree is slow growing producing mostly  red brown wood.

 Cherry stains well. 

 There is a mixture of sapwood and heartwood for most  manufactured goods unless specified. 

 Cherry will darken with age, unlike Alder that stays relatively consistent over time.

 

 

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 Stains very well.  For economy, one might consider using Maple with a Cherry Stain as a good alternative. Cherry or Maple are not  hairy, thus a

 smoother texture to provide even staining. 

 FAQ: Will the Cherry be consistent in color?

 Unless you specifiy all heartwood or all sapwood, there will be variable pieces of various colors.  Expect to pay much more for premium wood

 matched.   Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run.

 No two pieces are identical.

   All About Maple     

      
 

  Southern Soft Maple:   This wood comes mostly from the Southern USA.   It is very brown-red in color and has little grain.

  It is excellent for making kitchen cabinetry, furniture, and carvings.  Although the wood is very hard, it is softer than hard maple.

  Both are hardwoods.  The tree grows fast and can be harvested and is a renewable resource. It is excellent for painting and staining.  

 

 Northern Soft Maple:

  This wood comes mostly from Southern Canada & northern USA.

  It is very white in color and has little grain. It is excellent for making kitchen cabinetry, furniture, and carvings. 

  Although the wood is very hard, it is softer than hard maple. Both are hardwoods.  The tree grows fast and can

  be harvested and is a renewable resource. It is excellent   for painting and staining.  

 

 SAP Maple:  This part of the tree is very white and has few color variations. It is a special request and comes at a premium price. 

 

  FAQ: Can I use Maple outside?

 No:  It is not to be used for exterior applications as it will rot very quickly. For exterior use, one could consider Pine.

 The best wood for exterior use is Cedar. 

 

  FAQ: Is there a more grainy wood to consider?

   Yes: One could consider White Pine as it is has more grain but maintains a white appearance.

  FAQ: Is there a wood with the same grain but darker?

  Yes: One could consider southern soft maple as it resembles cherry but with less grain.

 

   FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain?

 Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run.

  No two pieces are identical.  Sap Maple is the inner part of the log and is more white - premium priced  Heartwood Maple is the outer part

  of the log with greater variances

 

 FAQ: Should I stain before clear Coating?

 All wood has grain variation, marks, knots etc. It is suggested to fill cracks with wood filler, sand and prepare the wood with a pre-stainer.

All About MDF  (Medium Density Fiberboard)    click here for MDF White Primed

It is an engineered wood composite product. Smooth MDF is often Primed White with the finish applied at the factory so it is ready to paint.

Embossed MDF is not usually primed.  You can stain MDF with difficulty but it is suitable for priming and faux finishing.

FAQ: What is Embossed MDF?

A heat embossment machine stamps out a pattern on the moldings.  This stamping process creates a deep profile that can be painted or faux finished. Embossed MDF is not primed. It is better to put a very thin layer of primer so not to cover up the embossment.  Enhanced with gold paints, embossed MDF patterns come alive.

FAQ: What is Wood Overlay on MDF?

The wood overlay isactual wood powder mixed with a bonding agent. This product is not made from molds, it is actually poured onto the surface of the wood. Know as "comp", patterns are regular but there can be slight variations due to the manufacturing process.  This product is generally primed white from the factory. 

 

 

All About FingerJoint Pine            

This wood is a manufactured product.  It is a paint only product and is not recommended for staining as you will see the Joint lines.

FAQ: Can I stain Finger-joint Pine Products?

No: Once you stain this wood the joint lines will appear and be amplified. Select Maple, White Pine etc for stain grade woods.

FAQ: Can I use these Pine products outside?

Yes: Pine & Cedar are best for outside use.  All wood used outside eventually rots, however there are some interesting things you can do to make your wood products last longer outside. Saturate the wood both sides with clear pressure treat. It is like the green stuff used on decks but is clear and the color won't bleed through the finish paint.  Insects don't like pressure treated wood cause it kills them. Remember pressure treat is made from arsenic and is very absorbent to the skin. Wear gloves a mask and dispose of the brush after use in a hazardous waste dump. Always observe the manufacturer's instructions when using this powerful chemical.  In some jurisdictions these chemicals may not be allowed - so check your local bylaws before using them.  After the clear pressure treat is well dried, prime the wood with an external primer.  Where oil based products are banned, use the best primer you can buy from a select paint store.  Two coats is a good idea. Now paint with quality external paint. Sand lightly between paint coats.

FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain?

Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 

 

   All About Red Oak        

         

 Brief Description: 

 It is a hardwood. The tree is slow growing producing mostly red brown wood.

 Red oak is very hard and grainy. It appears to be rougher than other woods. 

 When stained the grain is enhanced greatly. 

 Red Oak is very hard and is difficult to get great results in carving.

 Red Oak carvings are very beautiful because of their more rustic look.

 

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 Red Oak stains very well.  You may have to stain it a few times to get the right color as Red Oak is hard and may not absorb the

 stain that fast.  Some finishers suggest a mix of stain and glaze.

 

 FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain of the base wood?

 Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances

 in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 FAQ: Is there something you can tell me about commercial wiping stains?

 Yes: Always read the manufacturer's warning labels and recommended uses.   Remember, Stains are chemicals and they act differently with variable

 products.  Stains can be applied with a brush or rag.  If you use a rag, when you are finished with it do not throw it into a bag (sealed or otherwise), or

All About White Oak      

It is a hardwood. The tree is slow growing producing mostly white wood. White oak is very hard and grainier than White Maple.

When stained the grain is enhanced greatly. 

FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain?

Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 

 

   All About Lindenwood or Basswood        

 

 Brief Description: 

  Linden has the consistency of soft maple.  

  It is a type of basswood and is very white in color.

  There is little grain. 

  It is relatively soft and is easy to carve unlike harder woods like oak.

 

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 Due to it's white appearance and little grain, this wood paints very well. However for staining we would suggest Maple, Alder, or Oak.

 If you choose to stain Linden, be aware that it very porous and the wood cells will expand creating a rough appearance.  Use Benite or another

 wood conditioner to seal up the wood pores before staining.    A harder wood like Maple, does not allow the stain to absorb in such a manner.  

 Some finishers suggest a mix of stain and glaze.

 

 FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain of the base wood?

 Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances

 in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 FAQ: Is there something you can tell me about commercial wiping stains?

 Yes: Always read the manufacturer's warning labels and recommended uses.   Remember, Stains are chemicals and they act differently with variable

 products.  Stains can be applied with a brush or rag.  If you use a rag, when you are finished with it do not throw it into a bag (sealed or otherwise), or

All About Walnut      

This wood is very hard and dark.  It makes beautiful carvings and veneers for furniture, especially in the hard knot areas known as burled walnut. 

FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain?

Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 

 

All About Mahogany   

 

 

 This wood comes from both  South America and Africa.

 It tends to be a lesser expensive wood coming out of the rainforests than other species. 

 The wood is rich and red in appearance and has a soft grain.

 

 

FAQ: I have been told that Brazilian Mahogany is better than African Mahogany?

Both of these woods are tropical woods.  The condition of the wood is quite variable depending on the exact region the wood comes from unlike a more managed forest.

South American Mahogany:

There is little Brazilian mahogany left on the market.  It is now known as South American mahogany.  For example, Honduras has passed laws prohibiting the export

of non-processed mahogany.  Unless you are buying a statue or column or any other product made from mahogany, the raw wood cannot be exported from Honduras. 

African Mahogany: Very similar to South American however the quality will depend on the tree

FAQ: Is there an alternative to Mahogany?

Yes: Northern Soft Maple is very white in color.  With the use of a Mahogany stain, the maple can resemble Mahogany.  To the trained eye there is a difference.

FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain?

Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.

Mahogany can be streaky with different pieces or the same pieces having different colors.This is normal and industry standard.  You can pay large premiums for consistency but often have to buy the entire lot of wood to pick the pieces for a color match.    

 

 

   All About Knotty Pine   

      

 Brief Description: 

 Like the name, Knotty Pine has knots.  It is a rustic wood and is paint grade or stained rustic. It is sold as is.

  Knotty pine is soft and grainy and yes has knots.

 

 FAQ: Can I Just Stain Knotty Pine?

 No: The sap from the knots will always "bleed" through with Knotty Pine.  If you want to paint it Knotty Pine

 1) shellac the knots first and let it dry for a day

 2) prime with a good quality primer and let it dry for a day

 3) Paint the product with high quality paint.

 FAQ: How does it Stain?

 If you like the rustic look, knotty pine is wonderful and ages gracefully.  It is a wood that shows the rawness of nature.

 

 FAQ: Are there variances in color and grain of the base wood?

 Yes: Remember all wood is a natural product and there are always variances

 in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 FAQ: Is there something you can tell me about commercial wiping stains?

 Yes: Always read the manufacturer's warning labels and recommended uses.   Remember, Stains are chemicals and they act differently with variable

 products.  Stains can be applied with a brush or rag.  If you use a rag, when you are finished with it do not throw it into a bag (sealed or otherwise), or

 let multiple rags pile up.  Stains with linseed oil in them can spontaneously combust - yes catch fire before your eyes!   Dispose of rags inside a metal

in color and grain texture from piece to piece or within one run. No two pieces are identical.  

 

 

 

   All About ResinMoldTM  

  

  Brief Description:

  ResinMoldTM is made from a syntactic polymer compound with a cellular structure quite similar to wood and may be handled much the same as wood and

  stains same as wood.  It is fairly rigid to touch but still flexible.   There are 1000's of profiles that match their wood and ArchPolymerTM counterparts. 

  It can be used for Concave and  Convex Curves and Arches.   Even complex crowns mouldings with dentils can be made from for these applications.

 

  ResinMoldTM is water, rot and insect resistant, thus it is very suitable for wet areas. It is great for Interior and Exterior applications.

  For most profiles it is custom made per order, although certain profiles may be stocked.

  

 Straight Lengths:

 All profiles are available in Straight lengths.  Perfect for swimming pool applications or wet basements. For some huge radius curves

 the concave or convex curve is so slight that straight lengths will be supplied as the product is flexible.

 

 Curved Walls:  Concave and Convex

 There are Crowns, Baseboards, Casings, Wainscoting, and Quarter Rounds available in ResinMoldTM.

 For tight radius applications, consult with one of our consultants regarding the suitability of the profile and it's ability to be created to go around tight corners.

 You may be asked to supply a cardboard template to produce the mold. You must supply us with a drawing of the application. 

 For large radius applications,  a template should not be necessary especially for baseboard or quarter-rounds.

 

 Arches:

 There are Crowns, Casings, Wainscoting available in ResinMoldTM

 You must supply us with a drawing of the arch that you want to have made. 

 We require the mid point Rise and Horizontal run measurement.   We also need the  various rise measurements at 12" increments to draw the arch on CAD. 

 This will provide the correct rise of the true arch or eyebrow.  In certain cases you will be required to supply us with a cardboard template of the arch. 

 Tell us if us want both sides of a door or window frame created.

 

 Circles:

 Circles are actually two mirrored arches. An example of a circle application would be a ceiling ring to enlarge a ceiling medallion or resin to go around a circular

  window or column.  You must supply us with a drawing of the circle that you want to have made. 

 We require the radius of the true circle or circumference.  Tell us if us want both sides of a door or window frame created.

 

 Matching Your existing Profile

 We require a 12 Foot piece of the profile you want to match in order to create a mold for your molding. All custom orders are priced by our custom

 department. 

 

 Creating a Unique Molding

 In association with Martin Richards Design we can create on CAD a unique custom profile of frieze or any molding.  We would need to create a custom

 wood carved plug, then molds, then the final ResinMoldTM product.   All custom orders are priced by our custom department. 

 

 Ordering Product:

 In order to serve you better you will be required to supply us with a drawing. For tight radius applications we need a paper or cardboard template.

 For most profiles the minimum order is 6 Feet with maximum lengths close to 12 Feet.  Every profile has a different length option.

 

 How do I know how much I need:

 We will calculate the amount of ResinMoldTM required with a modest extra amount once we receive a drawing from you.  A written quote will be produced

 and faxed or emailed to you with a payment form.  We do not take verbal order. Remember to tell us if you require the profile for each side of the arch or

 stairway.

 

 How is it installed:  

 For a tight radius, warm up the product to allow maximum flexibility. 

 Cutting: ResinMoldTM cellular composition cuts and machines the same as wood. Any saw, router, shaper, or molding machine may be used as needed. 

 

 Nailing:  It can be nailed or pined with a nail gun without pre-drilling - the same as the wood counterpart.

               On arches we recommend starting at the center and moving outwards to the ends. 

 

 Gluing:   It is necessary to use a quality construction adhesive before nailing. Run a continuous line of adhesive when applying. Any glue or adhesive that

 will bond to wood will bond to ResinMoldTM. The back side of each part is sanded to create a better bonding surface. Unsanded ResinMoldTM moldings

 are not always receptive to adhesive and can cause adhesion failure during installation. 

 

 Finishing:  It is comes primed and can be Painted or Stained

 

 Staining:  ResinMoldTM flexible molding cannot be stained the same as wood. ResinMoldTM is primed with an all purpose, porous primer.

 For best results, add a clear glazing compound to the wood stain. Normal ratio of mixing the glazing compound with the stain is one part glazing liquid to two

 parts of stain. Stains for synthetic products are specially made to work over these surfaces.  In doubt, always test a small section of the moulding before

 staining the entire piece.
