    • Finish: lacquer
    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut 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 walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.
    • Hardware: natural steel
    • 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.
WOODWIND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

WOODWIND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

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

Benchmade Construction

Each Woodwind 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 Woodwind piece one of a kind. The Woodwind collection features solid wood frames, drawer fronts and bases.

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Woodwind pieces have wood veneer tops, sides, interior panels, drawer boxes, doors and bottom panels. The wood veneer exterior back panels are unfinished. Woodwind’s wood veneer is made by applying a layer of solid wood to premium grade plywood. 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

Woodwind is available in a beautiful range of natural and stained woods. Stain colors are meticulously applied by hand and layered until the perfect color is achieved. A clear low-sheen lacquer is used on both natural and stained woods to protect and seal the surface. Regardless of your material selection, the grain of the wood is allowed to show through for a natural look.

Drawers and Glides

Drawers and Glides

For Woodwind cabinets that include drawers, the drawer fronts are 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. Drawer interiors are hand sanded for a smooth feel and left unfinished.

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Woodwind's wood veneer shelves rest on adjustable steel pins. For Woodwind cabinets that include doors, all doors are wood veneer and precisely inset within the frame. Concealed, fully adjustable hinges open 110 degrees and give you the option to adjust the door alignment for perfect functionality through years of use. The modern steel knobs are handcrafted exclusively for Room & Board.

Customer comments about Woodwind 32w 17d 72h Two-File-Drawer Bookcase:

We purchased this unit (and a matching horizontal book case) about two years ago. I only add a review now because we are looking for a media cabinet and when reviewing comments on several R&B selections we liked, several people in their comments mentioned that the wood had a dry, dull finish and in one instance, R&B came to their home to oil the piece. This suddenly reminded us of the same issue we had with both pieces however, when we contacted R&B we were told this was normal and with age, it would develop a glow. This has still not happened and we could not recommend purchasing this product from R&B,

      This is just what I was looking for. I ordered it in the dark wood finish and it looks beautiful. Having files on the bottom is as functional as it gets! I also ordered a bookcase with drawers and put a console in the middle which works well!

            As always, Room and Board delivers quality furniture. This is such a beautiful piece with loads of file storage space. I love that I finally have a place to put my printer so it's not just sitting out on a tabletop. Cord organization, hooray! Just another lovely piece of woodwind furniture to go with my shelves. I'm pleased as proverbial punch.

              We purchased the Woodwind bookshelves last year and were pleased with the quality, so we bought the file cabinet sight unseen. It is a lovely, quality piece that we will enjoy for a long time. If most of your files are legal sized, though, you will get much less file storage.
