Adding dimension, color, character and smoothness to the wood, a multi-step finishing process also preserves the wood's natural beauty. This wonderfully enhancing process is highly desirable, and found in the finest furniture.
A technique that produces a beautiful timeworn look on wood furniture, distressing is done by creating wear and tear markings such as dents and bruises on the surface.

Produced during the natural growth of a tree, knots are prized for the visual interest and unique detail they give each piece of furniture. These darker areas appear as a pattern in wood grain when it's sliced and are not always smooth on the surface. The cracks, holes and impressions are an integral part of solid-wood's look and are sealed for protection for many years of wear and use.
To create a worn effect, this technique employs a shaping tool that is run along edges and corners.
Small holes are made to emulate these ravages of time by using a tool with thin rods tipped with a round metal ball.
This technique brings more depth to grain patterns by using a small brush with a very dark stain to put random short dark lines or curves on the surface.
Dust-proof panels may be located between each set of drawers and at the base of the case, or sometimes just at the base. These panels prevent circulation of dust particles and thus protect the contents of the drawers.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
Allowing smooth, directed drawer movement and alignment, side guides are wheeled tracks along the side of drawers that guide the drawer along the inner wall.
One of the strongest and most decorative joinery methods, interlocking dovetails maximizes storage space and ensures drawers won't loosen with years of use.
