These wood types are durable and feature beautiful open grains that make them much preferred among furniture manufacturers. Each piece of wood is first graded for quality then kiln-dried to remove excess moisture and prevent splitting. The wood is then constructed into a high-quality furniture piece using a combination of hardwood solids and hand-selected veneers. Techniques used on Riverside pieces include dovetail joinery heavy-duty drawer roller guides and multi-step finish applications that include hand-sanding and polishing for a deep lustrous result. All Riverside furniture is given this high-quality treatment to ensure the beauty and durability of your final product.About Riverside FurnitureRiverside has been growing for more than half a century.
