Solid WoodHigh quality unfinished furniture is made of authentic wood. That means it does not have particle board throughout and is not simply a bunch of plywood put together. Unfinished wood is the real article, so don’t let any other configurations fool you. Veneer may give off the look of real wood, although it is not actual sturdy lumber that is intended to be used in high grade unfinished furniture.
Price PointIf you see a piece of unfinished furniture advertised at an extremely low price, do a throughout investigation. Chances are, it is not real wood because such pieces demand a higher price tag. You really do get what you pay for with real wood furniture. The real article will last years upon years as long as it is not damaged. That is one of the reasons the asking price is always a little higher.
Assembly Not RequiredMost high quality unfinished furniture comes already assembled. However, there are exceptions to that rule as some tables will need to have the legs fastened. Real wood headboards usually call for the need to drill holes before the headboard is attached to the frame. Also, some desks will need to be attached since many come with multiple sections.
Wood DrawersLook at how the drawers were constructed and that is often a strong indicator of the quality. Check the bottoms of those drawers as high quality pieces will have real wood on the underside. Dovetail drawer joints are also a good indication of high quality while particle board in the drawers should throw up a huge red flag.
WeightHigh quality wood furniture is heavier than other knockoff pieces. While other furniture pieces may look very similar, the weight tells the difference. Lighter pieces may include materials like particle board that will not withstand the test of time the same way a high quality piece of unfinished furniture will.
