Tips On Caring For Wood Furniture

Posted on September 26, 2012

Wood furniture adds warmth to any home, but it requires care if it is to look its best. We asked local experts for some tips. Irene Carlson, proprietor of Arguz Antiques and a teacher of classes in refinishing and wood care, says good everyday care starts with avoiding careless acts. Hot drinks, wet glasses and plant pots will leave marks, so it’s a good idea to put something between them and the wood. If you accidentally put a wet glass on a table, wipe it up immediately. Harry Nixon is one of a rare breed of wood furniture refinishers who specialize in eighteenth-century European pieces. He deals largely with solid mahogany, oak and walnut that has been “French polished.” This is a technique involving a mixture of shellac, alcohol and linseed oil, applied in a long, painstaking process to create a high lustre. French-polished pieces are more susceptible to water stains than those finished with urethane and lacquer, and Mr. Nixon says it’s important to know what type of finish has been used on your wood furniture. William Jackson, owner of The Paisley Shop and an importer of Georgian furniture, reminds customers that it is crucial to maintain at least […]

Paint and stain manufacturers are making it easier than ever to apply a beautiful finish to ready-to-assemble wood furniture. If you don’t want to hide the natural beauty of wood furniture with paint, staining is an option with a much-reduced hassle factor. Depending on the look you want, choose from products that combine stain and finish to save you time (such as Circa 1850 Stain ‘N Varnish or Minwax Polyshades), or water-based stains and finishes that make cleanup easy and environmentally friendly (such as Varathane’s Diamond line). You’re not restricted to wood furniture such as oak and maple. Colors and custom tints are available across several lines; colors can also be layered to create special effects. For this project, we used Circa 1850 Stain ‘N Varnish in a first coat of white birch and a second coat of steel blue to achieve a rustic, washed-blue effect. Approximate cost: Stain and supplies for this four-shelf storage unit cost less than $25. Completion time: Three hours for sanding and initial stain, 24 hours drying time, two hours for light sand and final stain, plus another 24 hours drying time.

Technology Improves Wood Furniture Items

Posted on September 14, 2012

Throughout history, there has been an appreciation for craftsmanship and attention to detail found in fine wood furniture, or casegoods as it is known in the furniture industry. Today, Canadian furniture makers unite the art of cabinetry with advanced technology, to create top-quality cabinets, buffets, dressers, wall systems, and chests for living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. For example, the fine art of veneering has been revived and most wood furniture available on the market now, features veneer construction. Veneering typically consists of a number of wood layers, permanently bonded together in a sandwich. Some people mistakenly equate veneering with inferior quality wood furniture, but in fact, case goods constructed with veneers are usually strong, durable, rich-looking and attractively priced. Many fine antiques, particularly those of the 18th century, were constructed with matched veneers of walnut, mulberry, yew and other burr woods, to create rich, striking effects. The most decorative type of veneered treatment is well known as marquetry – a process of laying veneers of contrasting light and dark-colored woods on to a solid base. This technique, which sometimes includes inlays of mother-of-pearl or ivory, was widely used in 17th and 18th century England, to decorate the surfaces of […]
