Marshall's premium wood finish is the result of over 65 years of experience in working with hardwoods. Incorporating the advantages of modern finish polymers with the wisdom they have gained over the years working with these woods, Marshall has produced the finest finish on the market. Below are just two of the components which make Marshall's the best finish in the industry.

bulletHand-rubbed filler - Hand-rubbed fillers are time consuming, but they are crucial in producing what is known as a "Premium finish" in the wood-working industry. Open-grain hardwoods like Oak are "ring-porous" and have distinct figure and grain patterns. The filler is used to fill or partially fill the pores of wood in order to advance the final build and smoothness of the finish. The use of filler in the finishing process is generally limited to horizontal surfaces fabricated from ring-porous species. The Marshall Company uses a hand-rubbed filler on the vertical surfaces as well as the horizontal to ensure a high quality finish that stands out as superior in continuity and smoothness.

bulletAWI #2 catalyzed lacquer - Catalyzed lacquer is a modified nitrocellulose-based compound with a catalyst added for enhanced performance and provides a smooth, almost imperceptible touch up finish for any nicks and scratches in the surface finish that may occur in the future. The lacquer base melds with the original layers of finish and then re-sets to a smooth repair. Varnishes and polyurethanes, on the other hand, will produce a layered look with any future touch ups or repairs.
