At present, there are roughly two types of solid wood furniture on the market. One is pure solid wood furniture. All the materials used in the furniture are solid wood. The table tops, cabinet doors and side panels are all made of pure solid wood, and no other wood-based panels are used. The other is imitation solid wood furniture, that is, the natural texture, feel and color of wood are exactly the same as solid wood furniture from the appearance, but it is actually a mixture of solid wood and wood-based furniture, such as side panels, shelves, etc., using thin wood Veneer particleboard or medium density fiberboard, doors and drawers are made of solid wood.

Advantages of panel furniture Panel furniture is based on man-made board, and the surface is made of artificial wood color leather or veneer, melamine board, etc. as the surface finish.
