What makes Furniture House Solid Wood Furniture different?
It is our attention to detail in combination with the time honored tradition of using only premium Solid Wood in our furniture.
• Most manufacturers use thin veneer construction in combination with high pressure laminates and particle board with edges shaped from plastic. Furniture House contains no veneer, no particle board, and uses edges shaped from solid wood.
• Furniture House's case construction features mortise and tenon joinery, a time proven method of assembling two parts at 90 degree angle.
• A wood on wood, non-tilting, dovetailed, drawer guide is used in installation of all Furniture House drawers.
• Where design allows, heavy front posts are used for additional case stability and strength.
• Fully floating tops, end panels, bed panels, etc. are incorporated in every Furniture House product to allow for normal expansion and contraction of the solid wood components as the humidity changes in your home.
• Our drawers feature English dovetailed joints on the front and back corners. This keeps drawers' durable, and problem free.
• Adjustable glides are provided on all units for leveling doors, and on select units for a center support.
• Raised panel doors and bed panels utilize a floating, self-centering construction technique.
• All Furniture House solid wood chairs are crafted using a glue and screw technique across a finger jointed corner. This adds to the strength of the chair while minimizing flex across the joint.

What is the difference between soft woods and hard woods?
Furniture House uses both hardwoods and softwoods in our solid wood construction. Both types of woods make for beautiful case pieces in our extensive solid wood line.
You may find that you prefer one type of wood over the other depending on your unique tastes, lifestyle, and specific needs:
• Hardwood is wood derived from angiosperms (broad leafed trees such as oak, beech, maple, mahogany, and walnut). Some hardwoods are actually softer than woods categorized as softwoods.
• Softwood is wood from a conifer or gymnosperm (cone bearing tree with needle-like leaves) such as Pine, Spruce, and Fir.

What is particle board and veneer?
• Particle board is made of chips of wood which are held together with resin and glue. Press boards and chip core are other commonly used names for this type of product that is produced to meet a variety of specifications.
• Veneer is thin, decorative wood slices that are applied to underlying particle board core material.
