Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, the Linear storage collection is built in a small woodworking shop in northern Wisconsin. Its refined, yet durable design, features details like dovetail joinery and handcrafted hardware, all indicative of expert technique. Linear's combination of natural wood and steel, craftsmanship, functionality and timeless design has made it a cornerstone of the Room & Board collection since 1990. And with a variety of both stocked and custom sizes and configurations, it's easy to find a Linear piece that works in your space.

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.



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. Ball-bearing glides function 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.
