Materials Stanley Furniture is hand-crafted from fine quality woods and often incorporates other quality construction materials such as aluminum steel glass plastic leather and marble. Since wood is the main component we??ll focus on how it??s used to make fine quality furniture. Hardwood Hardwood refers to all leaf-bearing trees rather than any degree of hardness. Those most often used in furniture construction include ash birch butternut cherry gum mahogany maple oak pecan rosewood teak walnut and yellow poplar. Softwood Trees with needles or foliage that remains green year round. These include cedar fir pine and spruce. Woods for Frame Construction: Ash gum and yellow poplar are often used in frame construction and other interior areas for their strength stability and shock absorption qualities. Wood Preparation Wood contains natural moisture that accounts for as much as one-third of the total weight of lumber when it is ?rst received. ??Curing?x9D lumber requires tremendous care and expertise. Our wood is air dried three to six months depending on its thickness; then placed in a dry kiln for two to eight weeks. Moisture content of six to eight percent assures the stability of ?nished furniture in either humid or desert climates. After the lumber is properly dried it is planed and cut to various widths and lengths then matched for color. Even within the same tree color varies greatly. Finishes Sometimes the name on a piece of furniture describes the finish rather than the type of wood used in its construction. For example and oak finish can be applied to an entirely different species of wood. Be sure to check the finish color and species of your furniture. Construction Since wood is sensitive to heat and humidity floating joints must allow for expansion and contraction. For the same reason all joints are not only glued but are held by glue and nail. read more
