- When we (FMW) refer to “finish” we are referring to the type of protective coating (finish) that is applied over the stain. There are many types of “finishes” on the market such as Varnish, Polyurethane, Shellac, etc. First Mountain Woodcraft uses medium rubbed moisture resistant Lacquer, the same type used on many furniture applications.
- Lacquer will not damage fabric over time as will some varnish products.
- FMW will provide our quilt hangers and quilt racks in several wood species and stain options. However, we will NOT provide our hangers and/or racks with a “stain only” option. If you select a stain option it will automatically be shipped with the lacquer finish applied.
CAUTION: NEVER DISPLAY A QUILT OF FABRIC OVER WOOD THAT IS STAINED BUT NOT PROTECTED BY A PROPERLY APPLIED WOOD FINISH. PERMANENT STAINING OF THE FABRIC MAY OCCUR.
