Wood furniture buying guide

Wooden furniture is available in a vast range of styles and sizes. There are many kinds of woods that used to build furniture. Hardwoods generally end up as indoor furniture and cabinetry because the wood grain and figure are highly desirable. Softwoods tend to become outdoor furniture, children's project, and other sorts of utility or painted projects.

So make sure you buy wooden furniture that has been treated with nontoxic preservatives such as linseed oil, and use such products for future retreatment.
