& Materials Information:
This line of Canadian platform beds and casegoods are made from Canadian
birch veneers. Birch is typically found growing in colder northern climates.
This species of tree is closely related to the beech and oak family of
trees. What makes birch a great choice in lumber is its tensile strength
and the ease of being grown from seeds and sapplings. All birch has a
finely, uniformed texture with closed pores and no significant aroma.
Closed pores means that the wood is easier to stain and finish making
it a great choice for use in furniture, flooring, violins and many other
products. Birch loses almost 15% of its volume when going from green lumber
to dry lumber as it air dries. This is considered to be a fair amount
of shrinkage when compared to other species of wood. Birch has a tendency
to warp and twist during air drying if enough weight is not applied to
the wood. Once dried, birch is very stable and easy to work with. Birch
has very attractive characteristics. It's a straight-grained wood that
has a fine and even texture. Birch trees can reach sixty five feet in
height and about thirty inches in diameter.
interesting facts about birch. The First Nations of North America prized
birch for its bark. Its bark could be easily stripped from fallen birch
trees and the wood was often used in the construction of wigwams, bowls
and lightweight canoes. Hardwood birch trees also exhibit excellent short-fibre
pulp qualities and are used in making printing paper. Birch wood is sometimes
used as a tonewood due to its natural resonance in high and low frequencies.
You'll find it used in the construction of speaker cabinets and prior
to the 1970's was used in drum manufacturing. Another quite popular use
for birch is for acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar bodies as well as solid-body
guitars. Some species of birch produce a sap that can be processed into
a syrup, vinegar or birch wine. Birch syrup is quite difficult to produce
and is more expensive than other food syrups but not considered as sweet.
fronts feature birch wood construction. Drawer box is constructed from engineered
wood which is medium density fiberboard using butt joints which line each
piece up edge to edge. The drawer box is attached to the drawer front face
through pilot holes that are drilled and then is mounted using steel screws
to ensure a strong and durabable bond between drawer box and drawer face.
1/4" industry standard drawer bottoms are used in each drawer. These bottoms
are fitted into the front and sides of the drawer boxes through a routed
out channel ensuring a proper fit. Drawer sides and bottom are finished
to match the outside of the casegood unit.
Steel quadro drawer glide runners are featured on each unit. A toolless
height adjustment thumbwheel is located beneath the drawer. This thumbwheel
works by moving it with your thumb and causes the movement of a wedge into
position between the drawer bottom and runner to adjust the pitch of the
drawer. Finger triggers at the bottom of each drawer make removing the drawer
or putting it back into the casegood simple and easy.
