The Maple wood used by Smart Cabinetry comes from the colder climates of upper Michigan and Pennsylvania.  These supplies are manufactured within 25 miles their plant and delivered daily assuring Smart customers the whitest of wood without developing any staining.  Even though maple is quick growing, its grain is straight, fine textured, and strong.  Within the grain are variations in color ranging from light to dark to dark reddish brown as well as mineral streaks, swirls, and pitch flecks.  Over the years, the interaction of sunlight with the oxygen in the wood will give your cabinetry a soft golden glow.

Smart offers a Polar White painted finish on many of their door lines.  As climate and environments fluctuate in temperature and humidity, organic components will shrink and expand variably.  These natural occurrences can create cracks and/or seams in the painted surface.  It is important to understand how painted surfaces behave.

Smart Cabinetry receives its red oak wood components and panel products from vendors within 25 miles of their plant and delivered daily.  Red oak's grain in quite dominant and varies from straight lines to arched or pointed patterns.  Colors in the heartwood range from pink to green as well as from light to dark, whereas the sapwood of red oak is white to light brown.  Like so many other woods, the color of the red oak cabinetry deepens as the wood interacts with natural light.  The wood is similar in general appearance to white oak, but with a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays.
