Each Legacy cabinet is carefully assembled, handcrafted with care throughout the entire process from selecting our own wood to applying the final coat of finish. Many manufacturers create different levels of specifications for their products. This can cause confusion. Legacy has only one set of specifications. What you see is what you get.

Hand wiped stains.
Catalyzed conversion varnish is extremely durable. This protective finish is both moisture and stain resistant to bring out the rich patina of the wood.

Lifetime warranty on drawer boxes.
Bottoms are 1/4” plywood.
Drawer Glides are undermount, white epoxy coated with captive rails. Self-closing on nylon rollers for silent movement. Lifetime guaranteed with a 100 pound rating.
Precision undermount glide optional.
Center panels for doors are pre-stained prior to assembling.
Wood surfaces are prepared for finish with sanding equipment to maintain consistency.
Stains, formulated for depth and clarity, are handwiped to accent the beauty of the wood.
The stain is allowed to air dry in flash tunnels after final handwiping.
The sealer is applied to draw wood fibers up and generate the initial protective coating.
Ovens dry the sealer, which is then handsanded to remove wood fibers and create a surface that is consistent, smooth and ready for topcoat.
The topcoat, a high-solid, catalyzed, conversion varnish, is the final protective coating.
Ovens provide enough heat and air circulation to cure the cross-linking chemistry and form an extremely durable coating that is resistant to scuffs, moisture, and household chemicals, to name a few.
