KItchen cabinet sample doors

tiedem
13 days ago

What is the purpose for getting sample doors from cabinet builder? I’m working with a company that represents themselves as ’craftsmen’ etc but give me poorly done sample doors. Wood is not prepped well before stain is applied. Stain dilution methods that are questionable etc. Are the sample doors not meant to be the standard by which you judge your final product?

Should they not be made with as much care as one would hope the final product is made? Or am I misunderstanding their purpose?

Attached is a picture of stained alder that I suspect was poorly prepped and stain poorly applied.

Opinions?
