What is Solid Wood Furniture?
Solid wood is the lumber that has been milled directly from the trees sourced from managed and sustainable forests. It is considered to be stronger compared to plywood or engineered wood since it is a homogeneous material. Environmentally, solid wood is much more Eco-friendly since it uses little energy during the production process.

Materials such as wood fibers, sawdust, glues and chemicals are all bonded together using extreme pressure and high temperature. Plywood and Veneered wood are slightly different as in they are created from strips of wood. The process involves gluing a thin layer of wood on top of a core material which may be lower grade timber, plywood or MDF. These do not last as long as Solid Wood furniture and has to be replaced much more frequently.Then exterior and interior of the furniture will not match and will be much lighter than Solid Wood furniture.For furniture such as book shelves, wardrobes, bedrooms plywood is not the suitable material since it has a tendency to bend in the middle when long pieces are used.
