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.
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.
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.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
Reproducing what looks like years of dings and dents, this process is done by hand to make physical impressions in the wood.
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.
