How To Choose Wood Furniture


Shopping for wood furniture? Selecting high-quality wood furniture can be baffling. There are many different styles, materials and construction techniques from which you can select. To make a good selection, obtain as much information as possible.

l        Material
See the scar, texture of the wood. Wood has some scars inevitably. If there are scars at one side, there must also have scars to the opposite side. Wood texture at one side must correspondingly have the wood texture inside.

l        Quality of Construction
Quality is mainly determined by two characteristics: method of joining parts of wood furniture. All joints are glued together. For quality , the joints should  be tight without any glue showing.
1.         Joints. How various parts of a piece furniture is put together are very important to durability and appearance.
2.         Sturdiness. Trying to determine sturdiness is very important when selecting wood furniture. This is because sturdiness is a good indicator of how long a piece will last.

l        Quality of finish
A quality finish involves three main steps: sanding, staining , and finishing. If any one of these steps is not done properly, the finish does not look as good as it should.
1.         Sanding. The manufacturer may do a good job of staining, finishing, and polishing, but if the beginning surface has any trace of roughness, not enough sanding, or sanding across properly absorb more stain. To check for adequate sanding, look at the finish from different angles with the light reflecting onto the wood surface. Is the finish blotchy or cloudy in some areas or does it may dark lines running across the grain? If the wood surface is blotchy, cloudy, or has dark lines running across the grain, the wood surface may not have been sanded smooth before staining.
2.         Staining. A good stain can enhance the natural beauty of wood, add color and character to wood, make one wood type. Look like another, and make different woods look similar. To evaluate the quality of staining, check the wood surface to see if the stain is evenly applied. There should be no dark spots where there is more stain in one area than another.
3.         Finishing. Finishes range from high-gloss to low-gloss in varying qualities. A high-quality finish is satiny smooth and free of rough spots, dust specks, or bubbles. A good way to check the smoothness of a finish is to put a nylon over your hand and run it over the finish. If the nylon catches or snags, it has not been sanded or finished properly.
