Create a Design

I had a design idea that involved a lot of custom cuts with our router. It wouldn’t cost very much money, but would take some extra time and patience!

Apply Stain with a FLEXiO Sprayer

When the doors were done, we were so happy with the design! We debated staining or painting the doors ahead of time, because we weren’t sure how nice the cuts would be, but when it was done, the wood looked incredible, and we knew we could stain it easily!

Apply Sealing Coat

The only way to get into all of those little groves without losing your mind is with a sprayer, lol. We used our Flexio 5000 and it worked perfectly! We sprayed from both directions to get every angle, We also used the Flexio 5000 to spray on the polycrylic afterwards, and it only took a few minutes to spray the entire door.
