Classy Corners offer a long awaited alternative to the exhausted use of common bullseye and rosette corner blocks. These corner blocks are often found adorning the top corners of every doorway and window trim.
The Classy Corners corner blocks are superior in quality for many reasons. Here are just a few:
We prefer hard maple for several reasons:
Light to medium stains, urethanes, and enamels look the best. Dark stains do not perform as well, since they may cause the image to look blurred or washed out. Some of the more highly detailed images are not recommended for enamel finishes. These are noted in the description for each corner block.
Yes, we have experimented with many different colored stains on these corner blocks and matching casings and have found that they will match quite closely to the same color tone. Due to natural variations in wood grains and densities it is not uncommon to experience slight variations in color tone.
We find that a sponge brush works very nicely with stains, and a �� stencil brush works well to apply the urethane and enamels. Use care when applying finish as pooling may occur if applied too heavily in artwork areas. If this problem should occur, simply dab brush repeatedly into areas that are too heavily coated to soak up all excess finish.
We recommend pre drilling corner blocks approx half way between each corner and artwork. Use galvanized finish nails only. Common finish nails may rust over time leaving ugly unwanted streaks. Do not use power nailers to install these rosettes as splitting may occur. Use appropriate colored wood filler to cover nail heads.
These expressions for your home will provide the perfect solution adding a pleasant warmth and a depth of character to each room of your home, one that you can always appreciate.
