Consider Beautiful Oak Drawers to Compliment Your Interior If you happen to be shopping for that perfect piece of furniture to finish off your home, why not consider purchasing a beautiful oak chest of drawers? Of course, this is never anything that you should jump right into. The reason for this is because it is going to be a very expensive investment. It is probably a good idea to shop around before you decide. When you do make a final decision, it will be a position that you will treasure forever. There are a few different things that you should take into consideration before you purchase an Oak chest of drawers. The first thing that youre going to want to think of is how big of a space you have available to store the chest of drawers? There are so many different sizes available, there is always going to be something that will accommodate you. The next thing you should think about is what color would look best in your home? Of course, oak is a beautiful color, but if the rest of your home is done in Cherrywood that is not going to look right. It is not going to be easy for you to be able to match an existing piece of furniture because there are so many different shades of wood. If you cannot find something that is going to look absolutely beautiful, dont be afraid to keep shopping. The next thing that youre going to want to keep in mind is how much money are you willing to spend. Of course, solid oak wood is going to be a little bit expensive for most people. There is such a thing as oak veneer which is available in many stores. This is a great way to get the oak chest of drawers that you are looking for without the hefty price tag. Most people know that the oak has a reputation for being solid beautiful furniture. However there are many other options available and if you are willing to shop around you will definitely get a good deal. The next thing that youre going to want to keep in mind is what exactly will you be storing in this chest of drawers. For instance, if you had an entire closet full of sweaters you would never purchase a small three drawer dresser. Be sure that you are purchasing something that is going to be big enough for your needs. If you are needing a chest of drawers that will store your undergarments why not shop around and find a chest of drawers that has a top drawer with many smaller sections? This is a great way to keep your drawers nice and neat. Also make sure that your drawers are both deep enough and also wide enough to serve your needs. The way that a chest of drawers first came about was back in medieval times and Europe. How it was designed was just a box that sat on the floor. Over time someone added a drawer to the bottom and now here we are. It is sometimes common for many homeowners to have an older set of Oak chest of drawers that has been handed down from generation to generation. The reason that this is possible is because the oak is such a strong wood that will last for years if it is properly cared for. No matter what kind of Oak furniture you are looking for to compliment your home, if you take your time and shop around you will be able to find that perfect piece that you have been looking for.
The Problem With Wooden Drawers Wooden drawers, over time can develop niggling little faults which we invariably put up with, inconvenient and annoying as they can be - when actually - the majority of these problems are relatively easy to fix. Drawers where the base has split and sticking drawers are probably the most common problems experienced. With just a little knowledge these can be rectified without having to start phoning around for a joiner as the first or our only option. Overloading drawers can often be the root cause of sticking drawers. The first step is to completely empty the drawer and remove for inspection. Check for loose or protruding pins or nails either on the drawer or in and around the drawer frame. Where evident; hammer back flush and refit drawer. It could be that simple. Tip. Before getting the toolkit out for sticking drawers; first try rubbing the runners and drawer grooves with candle wax. This might just do the job without any further effort. Drawer runners could also be the culprit. Check how smoothly the draw slides along the wooden runners. If they have worked loose it can be the cause of sticking; again, usually due to overloading. If so, then just apply fresh adhesive to the runner and pin back into place. Worn runners are another common cause of drawer problems. The uppermost sides can become worn with use and time. Check that the underside of the runner is still good - it might be possible to just remove the runner and turn it over. If so, then carefully prise it off with a wood chisel- apply adhesive- and re-pin into position. New runners may be required if turning the old runners round does not solve the problem of sticking. Where this is the case cut a couple of pieces of wood to the same dimensions as the original runners, smooth with a medium abrasive paper and drill with the smallest wood drill bit in your toolbox to take the small diameter of the fixing panel pins or nails. Apply a thin coat of wood adhesive to the back of the new runner- press into position- and affix with pins. Drawer bases can also suffer the adverse effects of overloading. In time they will begin to sag and eventually they can split completely, requiring replacement. In this case, cut a new base piece from either plywood or from a hardwood of choice. Next, remove the nails or pins securing the damaged base to the body of the drawer using pincers, and remove any glue blocks that may be attached using a mallet and wood chisel. Replace with new base by gluing and using pins. Drawer bases that are split may be sometimes repaired, that is to say; simply remove both halves from the drawer body and glue them back together. From a strength point of view, depending on usage, this may not be the best option.
