Common sense should prevail as to the dos and don'ts with your timber furniture. The following tips will help you enjoy your furniture for many years to come.
It is essential that your furniture be positioned on a level surface to ensure doors hang correctly and open smoothly.
Avoid exposing your furniture to excessive heat either from the sun or heaters. This will remove the natural moisture from the timber that can lead to cracking. If it is unavoidable, regular waxing of your furniture will lessen or even prevent the level of cracking. Furthermore, direct sunlight will cause the colour of real wood to change even if it's stained, painted or lacquered. This would be particularly apparent if the furniture is placed near a window.
