If stain is used in the piece, it is applied before putting together to insure a uniform look every time. It is then put together, adhering each piece with wood glue and nails for a quality and lasting bond.
After the edges are trimmed down, and touch ups are done, it is then ready for finish. On all pieces except for the natural wood pieces that are left raw, we use a water-based polyurethane. I use a matte finish to keep the pieces muted and allow the design to be the center focus. This process usually takes an entire day as to brush polyurethane onto these dimensional art pieces is tedious work.Each piece takes 2-4 coats before completion. The final stages of these pieces is to attach the frame, touch up the piece, fill in nail holes, and apply hardware. I use a high end french cleat system to insure the ability to hang these pieces almost anywhere and with ease.
