Buying solid wood furniture for quality and lasting value is always your best investment. Be informed and know the differences of solid wood furniture and cheap veneers.
Is the furniture solid wood or is it veneer over fiberboard?
Be wary of an uninformed sales-person; learn to know the quality for yourself with these clues from Marci Wheeler:
first, solid wood furniture has different wood grains on every board and the grain goes all of the way to the edge. If the grain doesn't go all the way to the edge of the piece (had a band of wood covering the edge), beware as this banding may cover particleboard and the piece is a cheap veneer.
Secondly, the wood grain on the top surface should match the wood grain of the underside. Note the grain on the furniture top and then look under the top to see if the grain is the same. If the underside of the top is painted, beware, and do not buy this piece.
