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.

        Bought another file cabinet from popular mail order company which cost more than the RB option. It didn't look like online photo and quality was poor, plus odor was bothersome. They happily took it back. The R&B option is so much better. Great styling, quality cherry veneers, solid wood, and no chemical odor. Love it. Was first product ever purchased and won't hesitate to purchase again.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Yes. Excellent. They were very accommodating.

        The color consistency is great on each indivudal piece but is quite variable between pieces. So if you plan to put more than one next to each other this can be a problem.

          I'm using the credenza as a file cabinet and have it in my dining room as a buffet table. I liked it because it doesn't look like an industrial file cabinet but more of a modern piece of furniture.

              Lateral file cabinets are hard to come by. The few ones out there are strictly "office style".
              I wanted a filing cabinet that could blend in since it's not in an office per se, but in the family/living room space. Plenty of room and the deep drawers can be used for other storage as well. Solid construction. Love the locking mechanism that allows only one drawer open at a time. I actually enjoy filing my documents now!

                Customer comments about Copenhagen 57w 20h Two-Drawer Lateral File Credenza:

                The piece in espresso was much darker than in the picture (I thought there would be a dark brown hue, but it is BLACK); it is an extremely heavy piece of furniture, for what it is; the rails that the files sit on jump off regularly and drop the files on the bottom of the cabinet, and you then need to spend some time fishing the rail-connector pieces out from the back of the unit from behind the drawers (it is as difficult as it sounds); the rails are flimsy and wobble and bend. This was a nice piece in theory, but was designed extremely poorly. My purchase of it has made me question upcoming furniture purchases from R&B.
