Much of today’s furniture is not solid wood but instead is made up of materials such as particleboard, fiberboard, and other processed woods. Furniture made with “pretend wood” is pre-finished in order to hide craftsmanship and imperfections. Real wood is shock- resistant and very durable, generally outlasting most all synthetic materials, and scratches/nicks are esily touched up. Whitewood Ready-To-Finish is a proud certified member of the Unfinished Furniture Association’s Real Wood Furniture Finished Your Way program. This is your guarantee that you are buying quality, real wood furniture.
