Sideboards. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 10:47:02 AM
Solid oak is still treasured by woodworkers and furniture buyers alike. Throughout the ages, it has been valued for its strength and beauty, which is why servers made of oak are still popular today. In contrast to oak veneer, solid oak will tend to have a more substantial feel to it if a lighter wood has been used with the veneer. Some of the more exotic or flamboyant looking grains may be more readily available in veneers, however, as they are hard to get and veneering allows a relatively small amount of wood to be usable for visual effects.
Oak sideboards are probably the most popular, and are definitely the most common when talking about antiques. Oak is a hard wood and while that quality makes it harder to craft into furniture, it also makes the finished item very strong and able to last a very long time. Across all furniture categories, oak furniture makes up the largest portion of antiques that are still in use today. Another popular material used in construction of sideboard furniture is pine. Pine is a soft wood, and that means very intricate designs can be created in the wood. The downside is the woods softness is also a reason it cannot stand up to the same use over long periods of time that oak can. You will find very few antique pieces of furniture that have been made from pine. One of the prettiest wood types used in furniture making is mahogany. This is a very hard wood that is actually difficult to cut designs and patterns into, but its reddish tone makes the finished piece very appealing to those who want something other than the standard wood tones. Whatever type of sideboard you decide on, make use of the internet as it is your best source of information on this and any type of furniture.
