Custom Wood Species & Finishes
We specialize in custom wood species and finishes. Our years of experience with a wide variety of these species and finishes provide us a unique familiarity, enabling us to work efficiently with them. Contact us to discuss how we can accommodate your custom specifications.
Mahogany is our primary wood of choice here at Vigilant. It is our standard across most of our product lines for its durability, beauty, overall quality and sustainability.
- A fine grain hardwood
- Resistant to rot, decay, and infestation
- Harvested from government regulated & managed permanent forests
- Seasons/weathers well with minimal shrinkage and checking making it the choice of boat builders and furniture makers around for hundreds of years
- Takes stain and finish exceptionally well
New England Pine
New England Pine is the choice for our value line of wine racking and it also will create a durable, beautiful wine cellar. It is locally harvested here in northern New England and is backed by the same great warranty as our mahogany products.
- A fine grain softwood
- Mills smoothly and is affordable
- Harvested responsibly in Northern New England
- A far superior alternative to B Grade redwood
- Seasons well with minimal shrinkage and checking
Poplar is our choice for our value line of wine cellar doors as it's easy to work with, is resistant to decay, and when sanded, primed and stained thoroughly, it holds up well to normal wear and tear of interior projects. It is locally harvested here in northern New England and is backed by the same great warranty as our mahogany products.
- Poplar typically has a straight, uniform grain, with a medium texture
- Mills easily and is among the most economical of all domestic hardwoods
- When stained it mimics the look of finer woods such as maple
We Do Not Use Redwood
While it was abundant 100 years ago, California redwood is now a scarce and endangered resource. Most companies that still offer redwood do so with a high outer sapwood content. This wood is of low quality and does not possess any natural rot resistance. It is also multi-colored and does not take stain well.
If the product is truly an all-heart redwood, it is not sustainable.
Composite Panels & Laminates
Composite panels are a vital part of modern woodworking. They offer superior stability, sustainability, strength, and dimensional consistency to any project requiring flat materials. While solid woods are perfect for items like our slatted wine racks, matching composite panels are used in cabinet sides, shelves and bins.
Some projects require a more durable material to stand up to wear and tear. For these projects we may specify a high pressure laminate applied to a composite panel. Laminates are strong and available in a vast array of finishes and colors. Common applications are on wine cabinet interiors and commercial countertops.
Stains and Finishes
We offer a wide range of standard finish options.* Our finishes bring out the beauty of the wood and increase durability. Our clear guard top coat is a matte finish that increases durability and adds a gentle shine.
Most hardwoods contain a variety of colors and tones. Our clear lacquer top coats permit the natural beauty of wood grain and color tone variations to be more noticeable. We bring these characteristics to your attention because the product sampling available to you may not provide you with an adequate idea of how a finished product will appear. It is your responsibility to decide whether or not the natural characteristic of finished wood will satisfy you.
Remember that computer monitor color variances may depict colors you see differently so they may not be a true representation of the actual finished product's color. If color is critical, request free samples prior to ordering.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Ebony and espresso stain are not available for pine.
Lacquer on Unstained Wood Products
As a general rule, we do not offer unstained products with lacquer only. Our experience has shown that the inherent tone in the grain of the wood is accentuated too strongly for most people's tastes.REQUEST WOOD SAMPLES

Stains Only Finish
Glazing Finish Option
Our glazing finish is offered with both our Harvest and Chestnut stains for our doors, and custom stains are available for our premium wine cellar product line. Glazing is not an option for our standard wine racks. This process adds another layer over the finish color that darkens the grain and profile lines making them stand out and giving them an aged look.
Price: $150 for doors. Premium wine cellar glazing option is priced dependent on project scope and product selection.REQUEST YOUR FREE CATALOG GET A FREE DOOR QUOTE
