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.
Mortise-and-tenon joints are a variation of a tongue-and-groove joint, and are used in table legs, chairs, chests and dressers to provide added strength. The narrowest end (tenon) of one piece of wood fits into a hole (mortise) in the second piece of wood. The joint may be glued, pinned, or wedged to lock it in place.
Corner blocks at the joints of wood frames increase sturdiness and durability. This method of joinery support offers the best strength and practicality.
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.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
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.
Enhancing the grain pattern of underlying coats, this method uses sandpaper or wool to gently rub away some of the topcoat on edges, carvings and other areas.
