Wood Trim Finishing

WARNING
You MUST remove the wood trim from the unit for
staining or finishing to prevent permanent damage to
the inner liner of the unit. Allow stain or finish to dry
thoroughly (at least 24 hours for each coat) following
the product manufacturer's instructions before
reinstallation. Not following this warning may cause the
inner liner of the unit to have a permanent odor, which
the warranty will not cover.
U-Line products featuring wine storage include wood-trimmed
wine racks.
Models with wood colored wood trim come factory coated with a
clear vinyl sealer without a finish coat applied, which will
sufficiently protect the wood in normal use. You may coat the trim
on the racks with stain or a final finish following these guidelines. If
using custom wood trim also follow these guidelines.
If staining the trim, stain before applying any final finish. Review the
following staining and final finish application and final finish-only
application guidelines when staining or sealing the wood to ensure
proper adhesion and durability of the finish.
NOTE: On glass door models the stain may appear darker
when viewed through the glass.

Staining and final finish application:

DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors from
oil-based stains will permanently penetrate the liner and
will not dissipate over time.
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim from the cabinet interior.
2. Lightly sand and clean wood.
3. Apply Minwax
synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow stain to
penetrate about three minutes. Before the stain is dry, take a
stain dampened rag and remove any excess stain remaining.
Wipe towards the grain with medium pressure to achieve the
desired stain color.
4. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the color of
the wood.
5. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before applying
the final finish.
6. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to smooth
the surface after staining.
7. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of Minwax
®
Polycrylic
Protective Finish using a synthetic bristle brush.
Apply this finish in a thin coat following the grain. Apply the finish
to the back and sides of the wood first, and allow it to dry for
two hours. Apply the finish to the front side of the wood next,
and allow it to dry for two hours. Sand with 220 grit sandpaper.
Apply two morel coats of finish in the same manner, but do not
sand the trim after applying the final third coat.
8. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the
trim to the cabinet interior parts.
Final finish-only application:
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim.
2. Lightly scuff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit sandpaper.
3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.
4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with almost all finishes. A
low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish such as Minwax
®
Polycrylic
Protective Finish is recommended (Minwax
®
Polycrylic
is an ultra fast-drying water-based finish). Apply a
thin coat of a clear, protective finish, following the container
label directions.
5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.
Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the trim
to the cabinet interior parts.
