Nancy Howard Furniture, April 14th , 2018. Wood and How it is Jointed. Choosing the correct wood is an art in itself, and fashioning an elegant piece of furniture using traditional carpentry joints that is as sturdy and strong as you require it to be is a sign of a master-craftsman. This is the quality only attainable with handmade furniture, no matter where it is crafted. Britain, the USA and Scandinavia are noted for the high quality of their craftsmanship, and France, Germany and Holland have all had their moments in furniture history. Today it is predominantly the first mentioned three that provide most of the higher-end handmade furniture. It is difficult to beat the craftsmanship of American furniture firms such The Custom Shoppe, American Craftsman and Stickley, while Southwood are without doubt the premier producer of reproduction furniture in the USA. There are many Amish furniture retailers that market products that have been handmade by individual craftsmen, using the traditional techniques passed down from father to son. The old jointing techniques are the best because they have been devised over time to provide the strongest and most enduring joint between two or more pieces of wood.
Nancy Cunningham Furniture, April 14th , 2018. Quality Furniture Stores. There are several stores that will sell you genuine quality living room furniture, and fine bedroom furniture made from solid hardwood, such as oak or teak, or with a hardwood base but a beautiful walnut veneer. Rosewood is another beautiful wood, as are maple and the beautiful deep red mahogany. Some prefer pine which is softwood with a clean, fresh natural look, and while not as resistant to damage as hardwood, many prefer it for kitchen and bedroom furniture. Search for manufacturers such as Stickley Furniture, American Craftsman, Sherrill furniture, The Custom Shoppe and Southwood furniture or any of a number if similar firms that you can find online, and you can be sure of purchasing high quality furniture that will last as long as you will. You should never be in a situation where you think a piece of furniture looks high quality, but are wondering whether or not it is in fact just chipboard, particle board or plywood with a glued veneer or laminate. If reputable firms such as those above offer that, you will be informed of the veneer and the base wood - no attempts to trick you! An online search of what is available on the internet is an excellent way of finding good quality custom furniture. Look for fine furniture manufacturers, or companies that distribute their work. You will not find high quality furniture in flat-pack format. When you purchase fine bedroom furniture, each piece will be delivered in its correct form and not put together in your home with screws and plugs, many of which might be missing!
Zachary Austin Furniture, April 14th , 2018. How to Identify Genuine Fine Furniture. First check the legs. No cabinet maker would ever fashion a fabulous table from solid mahogany and then put some screw-on legs under it! The legs will also be solid - and made from the same wood as the table is built from. Check beneath the table: all cheap mass-producers will veneer the top of the table but not the underside. If the wood at the bottom and the top look different, then you are being conned. Check the joints: high quality furniture should be made using proper joints: mortise and tenon for rails and dovetail joints for drawers and cabinet sides - absolutely not using commercial plastic joining pieces or metal or plastic corner joints, and certainly not just screwed or nailed together. Lift a chair upside down and examine it: high quality chairs will have a canvas on the bottom, or at the very least proper webbing and springs on the seats to offer support and comfort. Cheap furniture will have a plywood base and a slab of foam! Quality furniture, whether in the form of fine living bedroom furniture or quality living room furniture, can make an ordinary room look good and raise your esteem in the eyes of your visitors. Learn how to distinguish between the mass-production furniture stores and the quality furniture manufacturers such as Stickley, Southwood, American Craftsman and Sherrill.
