These years, solid wood furniture market share gradually rise, most consumers think of solid wood furniture environmental protection, wood, Catalpa wood, cypress, pine usually wooden furniture by consumers like, attributed to the high cost of mahogany furniture has gradually entered the homes of ordinary people.
Solid wood furniture technology has its own characteristics, especially attention to use when wood expansion and contraction of the physical properties, as well as a series of maintenance, are family members of the public need to understand. Who lives in the west of the public Mr. Chen order a northeast old elm furniture, wood color, concise planning, Nordic personality in the family decoration and complement each other. He found that the coffee table as well as the surface of the TV cabinets are surrounded by a rectangular pit, just like the same gap. Mr. Chen think, so the pit not furniture itself cohesion, but intentionally, as so planning the same, but the use of the process will fall into the dust and small debris, convenient cleaning, had better not so planning.
With Mr. Chen's question, the reporter consulted professionals. The pit appears to increase our cleaning trouble, is actually a special technology of solid wood furniture. "Its existence, to curb wood thermal expansion and contraction of the physical characteristics and progress of solid wood furniture use life to infinite guarantee results." The professional commentary.
It is understood that the pit gap called expansion joints may shorten the gap, is a traditional processing technology of Chinese classical furniture. This is like the traditional Chinese furniture manufacturing technology -- mortise and tenon structure, do not use nails, furniture parts assembled by a combination of tenon and mortise link. Shortening is the traditional furniture manufacturing technology of seam.
In usually days, careful people can find and advanced solid wood furniture, especially in mahogany furniture, the side end of the panel will have a gap. So the gap is to when the wood was the influence of the external environment and shortening or expansion time, not breaking furniture edge or corner tenon, lead to loosening of furniture components, can not be normal use. Spring and winter climate dry, through artificial drying wood furniture manufacturing, usually to keep the expansion joint, otherwise, after the arrival of the humid summer, the high edge up bad. The data of winter drying, can put together perfectly. But the rainy season is sure to rise. It is understood, in order to cut wood for deformation and manufacturing of solid wood furniture, wood has a severe drying process, some may to bake more than a month. Standard manufacturers in order to control the quality, are not the same as the region's water content is not the same.
In fact, the size of the expansion joint is also a knowledge, a very important effect on the use of solid wood furniture. Professionals think that the width according to the regional climate characteristics and the ultimate use of furniture size determines the proportion of wood. Expansion joints are usually in the width of 5 to 3 mm or less, more than 5 mm on the ugly. If you reduce the gap is too wide, is usually not good at manufacturing furniture of wood drying, consumers purchase should be particularly careful.
