    • Finish: oil-and-wax
    • Material Description: Cherry adds timeless warmth and character to your room. Even after cherry is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New cherry ranges in color from light brown with pink undertones to reddish brown and will beautifully darken to a deep, reddish brown over time.
    • Base: natural steel See full material details
    • Finish: lacquer
    • Material Description: Our natural steel is domestically sourced from 99% recycled raw materials and hand-selected for consistent color and texture. Hand-welding can create unique markings, as well as color change, due to the heating and shaping of the steel. Subtle variations in color, along with the individuality of each craftsmans work, ensure that no two pieces are alike.

LINEAR CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

LINEAR CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

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

Benchmade Construction

Each Linear 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.

Solid Wood

Solid Wood

We source our solid woods within the U.S., which has some of the strictest forestry standards in the world. Every board is hand selected for color consistency and strategically placed to create a cohesive appearance. The natural markings of the wood make each Linear piece one of a kind. The Linear collection features solid wood tops, sides, doors, drawer fronts and bases (when a wood base is selected).

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Linear pieces have wood veneer interior panels, shelves, drawer boxes and bottom panels. The standard wood veneer back is unfinished, but you may customize Linear to include a finished back for an additional cost. A solid wood layer is applied to premium grade medium density fiberboard to create the wood veneer for Linear. This combination of materials increases structural integrity because it doesn’t expand or contract with seasonal humidity changes like solid wood. Our wood veneers are the best quality in the industry and CARB 2 compliant for low emissions.

Finish

Finish

A lacquer finish is applied to stained pieces and oil and wax finish is applied to natural wood pieces to showcase and protect the natural beauty of the material. Both finishes are applied by hand for a flawless, consistent appearance that is smooth to the touch.

Drawers and Glides

Drawers and Glides

Each drawer front is solid wood and perfectly aligned within the frame of the piece. 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. Drawers are hand sanded and waxed for a smooth, snag-free finish.

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

All doors and door frames are solid wood and precisely inset within the frame of the cabinet. Concealed, fully adjustable hinges open 110 degrees and give you the option to adjust the door alignment for perfect functionality through years of use. Interior latches keep doors securely closed. Shelves are wood veneer and rest on adjustable steel pins. The solid wood or steel knobs, pulls and bases are handcrafted exclusively for Room & Board.

    This filing cabinet looks great in our home office. I like how simple it looks. Too bad it doesn't come with locks.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery took some time as the wood stain/color was a special order. But when it arrived, the delivery people were very professional and careful when hauling in the piece.

      Customer comments about Linear 51w 20d 32h Office Storage Cabinet with Steel Base:

      We purchased the Linear 51" storage cabinet with two lateral file drawers and three smaller drawers in maple with steel base. We are furnishing a combination home office/guest room and appreciate that the cabinet doesn't look like a file cabinet. In the unlikely event we achieve "paperless," the cabinet slides seamlessly to a variety of storage uses. Construction is solid, styling clean and contemporary. I'm ambivalent about the oil and wax finish, but it's fine.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I cannot praise the delivery guys enough. We have a narrow enclosed spiral stairwell with particularly tight access at the base. Experience, skill and care were evident as they maneuvered the cabinet up the stairwell, at one point with less than 1/2 inch clearance. Wow!

      There were a couple of imperfections: The top surface showed rag or brush marks where the finish did not follow the grain, and the joins on the lower corners weren't quite flush. These weren't necessarily deal breaker issues, but customer service was very responsive and wanted our complete satisfaction. A local craftsman came out today, corrected both issues and we are now entirely satisfied and pleased with our purchase. This is our second Room & Board purchase, and customer service has been excellent in both instances.

        If you use the drawers for files, the drawers sag and have to be lifted in place in order to close. I have one drawer where the sliding hardware bent from the weight of the files, and now I cannot close the drawer at all!

          It took 6 months for my husband to decide what he wanted in his new home office. He finally went with this piece. As always room and board delivery was customer focused and efficient. Sadly after less than 24 hours my husband knocked over a lamp and put a gouge on the front of the drawer....ouch! We contacted room and board for a recommendation on repair. They offered to look at it so we brought it to them, and they filled and sanded to cover the hole, and did such a great job you would never ever know anything had happened! On top of that even though it was our fault they didn't charge us for doing it!! Our house could be a room and board advertisement as we have bought several pieces there. Some great, some OK. One thing that is always great is their customer service.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Best customer service I have ever worked with. From sales to delivery. Very personal efficient and committed to the customer.

                  I have had my R&B linear file cabinet for years and it has held up beautifully. Can't complain one bit. It looks fabulous and meets my every need. We had a custom one made with two long drawers one over the other. The top drawer we use for all of our files. The bottom drawer is loaded with all of our cameras, video cameras and computer accessories. It hides the mess.
