Wood maintenance

Maintaining the wooden furniture is easy. And one of the things that you will do is to polish the furnishing, the question is, will you oil the wood or wax it? To oil the wood will be the fast ay to do it but this method is not suggested, when you oil the area, then you only double the amount of dust on the wooden furniture. This is possible because oil attracts the dust rather than repel it. So though you make the furniture sparkle for some time, take note that dust will settle in on the area after a few minutes and you will have a lot of work to be done.

'Dove-tails' are best

If you are planning to buy your drawer, then look for the best quality. Remember that the best quality drawer construction is the one done in ‘dove tail’. The ‘dove tail’ type of construction is that type where the wood is woven like the interlocked fingers in order to provide excellent strength and durability for a longer period of time. Though other construction techniques may be good, but take note that the ‘dove tail’ style is still best and if you have the choice then make this your choice. So the next time you do your shopping, look for this one on the furniture.

Look out for wood veneers

When you buy your wood furniture, you have to remember a few guides that you should not forget. One thing that you should not forget is that fact that some of the furniture out there is made from a combination of real wood veneers and solid wood. There are some instances when you will not get 100 percent, so be ready when that happens. But this does not mean that what you get is now of inferior quality. In fact the solid wood can gave problems with cracking and splitting. This may happen to the wood during high humidity.
