COPENHAGEN CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

COPENHAGEN CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Learn how every part of our American-made Copenhagen collection is created, from the materials and hardware to construction methods and finish details.
Benchmade Construction

Benchmade Construction

Each Copenhagen piece is constructed one at a time by an expert artisan. The entire case is reinforced with time-tested joinery, built and assembled by hand and then hand sanded and finished before it comes to you as a fully assembled piece. Our commitment to benchmade construction ensures you receive furniture that's built to last a lifetime.

Wood Veneer

Wood Veneer

Copenhagen is made entirely of wood veneer. Two different types of wood veneer are used: solid wood veneer for natural woods and wood fiber veneer for white and ebony. Solid wood veneer is created by adhering a thin layer of solid wood to premium grade particle board. Wood fiber veneer employs the same process, but the solid wood is replaced by a thin sheet of recycled wood fibers. Wood fiber veneer’s grain-free surface is specifically designed to be painted.

Wood veneer increases the structural integrity of a piece because it does not expand and contract with seasonal humidity changes like solid wood. Our high quality wood veneers are CARB 2 compliant for low emissions.

Finish

Finish

A low-sheen lacquer is hand applied to all Copenhagen pieces to seal and protect the surface of the wood veneer. Craftsmen carefully inspect for drips and even application. Solid colors are achieved by adding pigment to the lacquer.

Exterior back panels are left unfinished. You can customize Copenhagen to include a finished back for an additional cost.

Drawers and Glides

Drawers and Glides

Drawer fronts are wood veneer and each is perfectly aligned within the frame. The drawer boxes have Baltic birch plywood sides connected with dovetail joinery and a wood veneer bottom. Full-extension ball-bearing glides allow you to see the entire drawer when fully open and glide smoothly even when the drawer is filled to its 100-pound capacity. Drawer interiors are hand sanded and sealed with lacquer for a smooth, snag-free finish.

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

All doors are wood veneer and precisely inset within the frame. Concealed, fully adjustable hinges open 120 degrees and give you the option to adjust the door alignment for perfect functionality through years of use. Interior latches keep doors securely closed. Wood veneer shelves rest on adjustable steel pins. Optional swiveling locking casters are suitable for hardwood or carpet. We designed the aluminum slab pulls and steel bases exclusively for this collection.

      Customer comments about Copenhagen 58h 50w Bookcase:

      I purchased a full set of these bookshelves a few years ago (2 narrow and one wide)to place on a wall in my living room to hold books and art. I chose these specifically because they would be covering a heating vent and the leg base was ideal for heat flow. Recently a small accident resulted in a sizable gash in one of the shelves because to my surprise under the thin wood veneer is soft particleboard. If you want a veneer covered particle board bookcase there are other cheaper options. I generally think of Room and Board as offering high quality products. To their credit this is not advertised as having solid wood components but rather "North Dakota artisans hand-select the finest wood veneers..." So, yes, this is accurate but only a discerning reader would catch the omission of the rest of the materials. They are really heavy because of the steel base so they seemed very solid when I got them. I just wanted to share this information. They are very attractive but, at least to my surprise, largely particleboard.

      Two upper shelves are fixed. It can only have adjustable ones below with limited height, so don't bother order an extra shelf.

      Didn't like the change of the delivery time frame. It was "in stock" but not "readily available" ???….

        Customer comments about Copenhagen 82h 36x14 Bookcase:

        This bookshelf works great in my living room with modern-looking decor (stainless steel home theater A/V equipment rack, wall-mounted TV, black leather couch, modern stainless steel chandelier, etc). The black finish is a nice solid matte black (ie, almost no visible grain), which works well in my situation. It also matches my Copenhagen bedroom nighstands and dresser.

        The shelves are relatively easy to adjust, and I had two extra shelves after configuring the shelf heights to what I considered appropriate for average height books. That's certainly better than the opposite problem of not having enough shelves.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivered on the day it was promised and they took it up the stairs to the living room and unpacked it in position.

                Delivery was a complete nightmare. Room and Board contracts delivery out to third parties, so beware. When the product finally arrived after two disastrous attempts and a long, long wait, the back panel was barely adhered to the bookcase. The back piece is held on by small staples, most of which had popped out prior to delivery. Dealing with Room and Board for this particular purchase was just too difficult and too time consuming, so I made no effort to remedy this problem. I gave up. I was really disappointed, I regret to say.

                Customer comments about Copenhagen 58h 50w Bookcase:

                This is a great looking and functional bookcase but the finish quality is poor. The ebony stained maple doesn't have any grain at all and is a flat black melamine look. The veneer is very thin and in some places sanded off revealing the rough fiberboard underneath. This is not how it is depicted on the website where the wood grain is showing under the stain. The Room and Board customer service is excellent and they are going to fix (hopefully) the rough patches or replace the unit, but overall I think that the veneer should have been thicker and if it is called stained maple, it should look like stained wood.
