About Solid Wood
Solid wood furniture means all exposed parts are made of the same species of all natural wood. Such pieces include no adhesives or resins as no other materials, such as plywood or particle board, are included.
Solid wood furniture is highly durable and robust. These pieces could last for centuries.
When exposed to extreme temperature, humidity and sunlight, however, solid wood furniture will expand or contract. This causes splits along the grain of the wood. Avoid exposing pieces to strong sunlight or direct heat sources to minimize this risk.
