WOODWIND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS
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.
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
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 durable medium density fiberboard (MDF). 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.
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
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. Ball-bearing glides function 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
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.
