Colors and Finishes


I use a variety of methods to achieve the bold finishes of my work. It is much more art than a science. I can make an infinite number of colors and color combinations applied with a variety of different methods. I cannot color match. I can make samples for a small fee, but due to a number of variables I cannot guarantee a finished product will exactly match a sample. As I said, it is more ART than science.

Steel finishes: I use chemicals and heat to color my work. I use the following three methods for the protective finishes on my work.

  • powder coating (lower cost, gloss finish, not as easy to polish as liquid coating)
  • automotive paints (higher cost, smooth glass like finish, easy to polish, any auto body shop can polish this finish)
  • waxes (small items, rustic items)

Wood Finishes: Relative to the end use of a project, the type of wood and the desired appearance I may use any of a number of different finishes.

  • custom mixed colored lacquers (best used on light colored woods such as maple or birch)
  • oils
  • waxes
  • shellac
  • urethanes

Finish samples can be made for a small fee relative to what and how many you need.

This is just a small sample of what is possible. I will add additional color chips from time to time. Ask if you want to see a color that is not yet here.
