A smooth finish on a drawer's exterior creates a polished and refined look; while one on the interior prevents splinters or snags.
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.
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.
Used to reinforce joints and provide support to the piece as a whole, dowel pins are inserted into a drilled hole and secured with glue. A good dowel joint employs a fluted dowel, which prevents air pockets from forming in the glue, thus keeping the wood from splitting.
Corner blocks at the joints of wood frames increase sturdiness and durability. This method of joinery support offers the best strength and practicality.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
At Havertys, we take many steps to ensure the quality and life of your furniture. These methods used on our wood pieces increase strength and durability, while offering an infinite variety of color, texture and beautiful effects.
Oak is a strong yet elastic wood with an attractive grain pattern. The age rings in the wood are far apart, giving it a unique appearance.
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.
Antiqued technique creates a handsome, vintage, timeworn look on new furniture by applying a coat of stain and allowing it to dry completely. The stain is then removed from selected areas, usually edges and corners, using fine-grit sandpaper giving it a faded appearance.
