D. STANDARD PAINT AND STAIN COLORS

STAIN COLORS
PINECREST®'s stain charges are for the standard Gemini® colors listed below. Stain samples are available for an extra charge.

Because of Wood Grain Variations, Stain Colors May Not be Identical to Samples.

Natural (clear) on Cherry
Executive Cherry on Cherry
Harvest on Cherry

Natural (clear) on Mahogany
Executive Cherry on Mahogany
Fruitwood on Mahogany

Natural (clear) on Maple
Fruitwood on Maple
Harvest on Maple

Natural (clear) on Oak
Wild Cherry on Oak

Natural (clear) on Walnut
Dark Oak on Walnut

PAINT COLORS
Specify paint manufacturer, color name and number.

PINECREST® will submit one sample for your approval. For additional samples (beyond the aforementioned one) additional charges will apply.

CUSTOM PAINT AND STAIN MATCHING
Custom matching is available for an extra charge. The following is required for computer matching:

  1. A 2” X 2” or larger color sample.
  2. The color sample must be on a flat surface.
  3. Paint sample must be on a white background such as white cardboard.
  4. Stain sample must be on wood. If the stain sample you submit for matching is on wood other than the wood used for fabricating the product, matching will be extremely difficult.

Pinecrest® will submit one or two samples (if necessary) for your approval. For additional samples, (beyond the aforementioned two) additional charges will apply.

Because of the variability in wood grain samples (regardless of the type of wood) the problems inherent in achieving exact stain matches are incalculable. Therefore, if the samples submitted are inadequate by your standards after two attempts by Pinecrest® to match your sample, we will no longer be obliged to continue the attempt of exact matching.

E. ASYMMETRICAL DESIGNS

  1. Pairs will be mirror image matched (unless you specify otherwise).
  2. Singles – To avoid the possibility of inadvertent design reversal, you must specify how the asymmetrical design is to appear.

F. CONSTRUCTION

Framed grilles are mortise and tenon construction.

Interior stile and rail doors in 1-3/8" and 1-3/4" thicknesses have laminated cores with 1/8" thick veneer facing with 3/4" thick hardwood bonding on outside edges of stiles. Pinecrest® may change from solid hardwood stiles and rails to laminated core at its discretion for any product.

G. CUSTOM DESIGNS – Are available for an extra charge.

Adjustments and/or alterations in pattern configuration may be necessary to accommodate your dimensions.

H. ARCH OPTIONS

Most grilles can be made in arch, circle and hex forms.

True Radius/Halfround Elliptical Flat Arch Segment

A Mylar®, cardboard or plywood template must be submitted for all arches except a true radius/halfround. Arches which have unusual or untrue radii also require templates. Cardboard templates which are bent and/or taped together are not acceptable.

The measurement from the bottom of the opening to the springline must be designated.
