to buy solid wood furniture "> furniture, we must first understand what solid wood furniture is. According to the" first China solid wood furniture seminar "supported by China Furniture Association, domestic and EU furniture industry experts on April 29, 2002 Formally established concept: solid wood furniture refers to furniture made of wood tenon frame structure, natural wood as the main body, and wood-based panels and other materials

the advantage of solid wood furniture is to reflect nature: natural texture, changeable shape (such as curved surface and carved pattern). Due to less glue, the environmental protection performance is higher than that of panel furniture. However, solid wood furniture also has obvious disadvantages: when making the load-bearing parts of furniture, if it is made into thin plates, such as side plates and frames, it is easier to change; In addition, the stability of wood depends on the change of moisture content. Solid wood furniture will be affected by the surrounding environment and change the moisture content when leaving the factory. The change of moisture content will lead to deformation and cracking

today's solid wood furniture, except for a very small number of products made of precious tree species all natural wood, such as tables and chairs furniture, most of them are natural wood in the main body or front face, and the rest are wood-based furniture made of wood-based panel processing, which is characterized by maintaining the beautiful texture of pure natural logs and overcoming the characteristics that wood is easy to crack, warp and deform when used in a large area, It not only improves the utilization rate of wood, but also keeps the essence of elegance and wealth of furniture. At the same time, it is different from panel furniture composed of wood-based panels (including solid wood chip cladding) and metal connectors

to buy solid wood furniture, you need to check the following points:

1. Judge whether the furniture is really made of solid wood, or indicate where it is solid wood and where it is man-made board. See the mystery of solid wood: wood grain and scar knot. This is the method of identifying whether the whole solid wood is disclosed by insiders. For example, the appearance of a cabinet door looks like a pattern, so corresponding to the position of the pattern change, look at the corresponding pattern on the back of the cabinet door. If it corresponds well, it is a pure solid wood cabinet door. In addition, looking at the scar knot is also a good way to identify pure wood: look at the location of the scarred side, and then look for the corresponding pattern on the other side

2. What kind of tree is solid wood made of, which directly affects the price and quality. In the north, ordinary solid wood furniture usually adopts beech, white oak, Manchurian ash, elm, catalpa, rubber and oak, while the valuable mahogany furniture mainly adopts "rosewood, chicken wing wood and red sandalwood". The market of solid wood furniture is relatively chaotic, and there are often things like shoddy products and confusing tree species. It is best to buy brand-name products. At the same time, pay attention to that the price of wood can only be higher and higher, and there is definitely fraud if it is too cheap

3. Observe the quality of wood. Open the furniture cabinet door and drawer, and observe whether the wood is dry and white, and whether the texture is tight and delicate. If the furniture made of particleboard, density board and one-time molding board is used, it is required that there should be no pungent smell after opening the cabinet door or drawer

4. Observe whether the wood has defects. The main stress-bearing parts of furniture, such as columns and load-bearing bars near the ground between connecting columns, should not have large knots, cracks or cracks. The structure shall be firm, the frame shall not be loose, and tenon cutting and material cutting are not allowed. Do not buy particleboard with a saw, nail Paint "> paint one paint" three houses and one set "; don't choose furniture made of" three noes "drawers with no mess, no tenon, and no tape at the bottom. The components of wood-based panels used on furniture should be edge sealed, and the installation of various accessories should not be less, missing nails, through nails.

5. Observe the strength of the board surface. The board surface can be stressed with fingers to feel the fastness of the board surface. One side of the material should be fixed by a well shaped fixed frame. If the skeleton is sparse, a Press the surface to feel the emptiness and falseness, and the panel vibrates greatly; The drawer bottom plate should be pressed by hand to test the strength. Generally, the bottom of the partition plate is usually made of laminated plates, and the partition plate with large area should be made of five layers. The switch of cabinet door and drawer should be flexible. When the panel is covered with thin wood and other materials, the color should be similar to that of the complete set of products, and the paint film on the surface of the product is not allowed to wrinkle, stick or leak paint

6. Check whether there is inclination of drawer or door frame, and whether there is deflection of mortise eye position, too large eye hole, loose mortise and other parts caused by low process level. Wooden furniture should have safety and stability. When the two cabinet doors are opened 90 degrees, gently pull them forward by hand, and the cabinet cannot automatically tip forward; The glass of the bookcase door should be polished; The dressing mirror and dressing table should be installed with a back plate, and the batten should fix the glass surface. Individual parts of furniture (such as legs, drawers, cabinet doors or brackets, etc.) must have enough supporting capacity. You should gently push the top corner of the furniture or sit aside to try whether the furniture is firm

7. Is the interface of the edge, top, front and back of the furniture mortised, tongue and groove, or double dowel joint? Dovetail joint or butterfly joint should be selected. Heavy furniture should be screwed with protective blocks at the corners and glued. As for the back plate, you must also check whether it is inlaid and screw on

8. Check the slide and latch of the drawer. The drawer should be solid and firm, and the screws should be tightened inside. It is advisable to open the drawers, movable desktops, cabinet doors and other parts to ensure that they can be used freely and connected correctly

9. Put your hand on the surface of the furniture and carefully check whether the polished surface is smooth, especially to avoid rough parts such as the foot of the table. Are there streaks in the paint? Is the paint on the corner too thick? Are there cracks or bubbles

10. Turn the chairs and furniture with cushions upside down and see how they are made. As for the table, check from the bottom. See if the joints are reinforced with screws and wedges? Are the slats and buckles tightly connected with the horizontal stop? Whether there is excess glue and filler at the joint

11. Pay special attention to the moisture content and origin of solid wood furniture wood. The climate of various regions in China has an impact on the moisture content of wood. The moisture content of wood should not be higher than 1% of the local equilibrium moisture content in the use area. Otherwise, due to the large expansion and contraction of wood, it is easy to cause the separation of mortise and tenon, the fragmentation of furniture, and the warpage. Therefore, to choose and buy rosewood furniture produced by enterprises with good drying equipment and drying technology, it is not important to buy rosewood furniture produced locally or in other places. The key is whether its moisture content is consistent with the balanced moisture content of the area of use. There is an old saying that "solid wood is no match for the Yangtze River", which means that when solid wood furniture produced in the south is transported to the north, it will be prone to cracking, deformation and other problems due to the impact of climate on the moisture content. So when choosing, you should see the origin clearly
