Ultra Fine Finish Cabinetry Finishes and other Special Coatings

     SacPlacer Painting specializes in high quality fine finish cabinetry painting and refinishing.  Over the years we have invested in better tools, better HVLP fine finish spray equipment, and we even have an offsite workshop with its own spray booth, sanding station, and drying rack. 

     The cabinet boxes attached to the walls will have have to be masked and sprayed in plus but with this workshop set up we can prep, prime, and finish all cabinet doors and drawers away from your home. A typical paint company would have to take over your garage or find some other place to spray all your cabinet doors on site in order to prep, prime, sand, and spray finish and this would leave you without a garage during the project and more time workers walking around your home.

     With our offsite workshop we cut down the time spent at the customers house by half and then once the doors and drawers have been finished and look flawless we then wrap them up in bubble wrap and secure them for the trip back to the customers home for reinstall and final touch up.

Specialty Fine Finish Coatings

     We have been proud customers of Kelly Moore for over a decade now and like to select from their line of special products and coatings. We can also match any color swatches from any other paint lines like Behr or Sherwin Williams into our Kelly Moore Product. For cabinets we use a strong Shellac primer and a long lasting durable finish coat.

Gemini Evo Eclipse

     EVO Eclipse is a premier waterborne wood coating available in North America, formulated with cutting-edge European resin technology that imparts superior application and performance characteristics. 

     EVO Eclipse is ideal for the woodworking industry including kitchen cabinetry finishing and refinishing, architectural millwork and casework, wood furniture, interior doors and molding and field finishing and re-finishing on-site.

     Benefits of removing solvent-based coatings from factories and job sites may include a reduction in insurance premiums and the reduction of exposure to more harmful chemicals for customers and their employees. Contact us to find out what EVO Eclipse can do for you.


     Gemini Industries’ new Water Borne Eclipse line has been designed to be very user-friendly.  We have manufactured it to be ready to spray right out of the container—no extra reduction except in extreme conditions.

     The Eclipse line can be applied using traditional cup guns, HVLP, Airless or Airmix systems.

     Easy application was one of our goals in developing this new waterborne line. Spraying vertically should not be a problem.

     This new Eclipse Line is excellent for cabinet refinishers too. It has been tested over previously coated cabinets finished with everything from old-school nitro to today’s 2K Urethanes. Thru this testing, we found that there was no need for a binding primer to be used.

Cabinet Refinishing Process

Remove and Label Doors & Drawers


Each door is disassembled and labeled for future reference. The hinges and hardware are unscrewed from the doors and stored in the same cubbie it was removed from. The upper hinge is stored on the upper shelf and the lower hinge stored on the lower shelf in the cubbie to ensure all door hardware is later reassembled exactly the way it was before our arrival, minimizing any adjustments needed during reassembly.

Prepare doors & Drawers for transport to workshop


We then take each door and drawer that was removed and wrap them to prepare them for transport back to our offsite workshop where they will be refinished separately from the cabinet boxes. This reduces the time spent inside the customers home and the need for garage space to set up a spray station, sanding station, and drying station. We have all our specialized equipment back at the shop.

Preparation and masking


Once the doors and drawers have been removed we will begin laying red rosin paper to protect your flooring and countertops while we work. The cabinet boxes will be outlined by 2" Frog tape and 12" paper to protect your walls from overspray. Each cabinet cubby and drawer hole will be masked using Frog Tape and Paper, creating a barrier and sealing all your cabinet contents behind our masking. We will also use our spring loaded EZ- up Poles attached to painters plastic to create a plastic barrier from floor to ceiling  which will contain any dust or overspray from spreading outside the work area.

Scuff sand and apply grain filler as needed


In order to promote mechanical adhesion all the cabinet boxes, as well as the doors and drawers back at the shop, will be scuff sanded and deglossed. We will also apply grain filler as needed to ensure we deliver a solid uniform finished product without dark pores or black cracks from grainy substrates.

Prime with BIN Shellac


In order to seal the cabinet substrate we will be using BIN Shellac for its excellent tannin blocking properties which prevents the natural oils from the wood from bleeding through to the top coat. It is also sticks to almost anything and is extremely easy to sand  to a fine powder. It gives us the perfect blank canvas to apply our topcoat to.


Spray finish product, sanding between coats

Using our fine finish HVLP turbine sprayer and cup gun equipped with the 3M PPS System we can easily swap between colors, spray upside down, and fine tune our spray pattern. We can adjust the rate of material flow, the amount of atomizing air, the size and angle of the fan, as well as the pattern. With this amount of control we can optimize our material transfer rate, producing less overspray and an overall flawless finish. We use an industrial strength waterborne top coat, which means it dries fast like a water based product and hard like an oil based product. It also provides some flexibility to reduce the change of chipping due to door slams and heavy traffic.

Transport doors & drawers from shop and reinstall


Once all the doors and drawers have gone through the same process back at the workshop they are then wrapped and prepped for transportation back to the customers house where they are reinstalled. Finally any touch up will be taken care of if needed and slight hinge adjustments may be made to make sure the finished product looks as good as possible.
