Real wood furniture falls into the category best known and demanded for furniture today. His state of demand and there was no turning obsolete for hundreds of years and has a history of its existence a way back to the caveman was running out to live on the floor and desperately looked for a better alternative.
Woods that are molded into various shapes and style comes in different styles into three categories:
Even the term “wood” or “soft” is very contradictory. Hardwoods do not always have to be a hard or dense materials. For example, balsa wood is among the lightest, least dense woods, but is still considered a hardwood. If from a technical point of view, wood is classified as to how the tree reproduces. According to the rule of nature, softwood trees remain evergreen year round while the hardwoods create the beautiful fall foliage that we all admire.
Hardwoods are considered the highest quality and most expensive wood. Its natural colors range from dark woods to the lightest that can even be stained or painted to pay more variety. Wooden furniture is rigid so it is expected that at least to warp or bend and is prized in all high quality homes. The woods generally come in use for furniture production are cherry, walnut, oak, maple and mahogany.
Despite Softwoods are less expensive than hardwoods still requiring special care. As there are long lasting, it is quite easy to scratch or dent softwood furniture. Also do not stain as clearly and as beautiful as hardwood. Pine is an example of a softwood entering the articles use furniture manufacturing.
Composites belongs to the category of the most inexpensive and cost of wood and is made instead of growing.
1. Plywood: multiple layers of thin sheets of wood are bonded and pressed. Plywood is durable and is resistible to inflammation, contraction and deformation. There are some items of furniture made directly from plywood, but only used as support when integrated into the furniture.
2. Particle board: it is made from pieces of wood sawdust and small, which is mixed with glue or resin and then formed and pressed. When used instead of cheap furniture, generally is laminated or covered with veneer. This is necessary as particle boards have a tendency to split easily and lamination prevents breakage.
3. Cluster: is done in a manner similar to particle board is made but is stronger, since there is more pressure.
4. Or MDF medium density fibreboard, in this case, the wood particles are bonded together with resin and then compressed. It is harder and stronger than particle board or wood, and can also be cut like plywood, but not as durable as plywood. The exposed edges of MDF are rough and need covering with molding or some other decorative material.
Technically, furniture made of wood in these products is “real” wood furniture. Prices and quality vary from the hardwoods of the composites. The higher quality you want for the most are required to pay for it. The best part is in the fact that if handled properly wood furniture care that promise long-term company. It is always suggestible to go for wooden furniture, if accessible.
