Furniture 101: What Is Veneer?

By Blogger April 3, 2012

Have you ever been shopping online for a media stand or a desk and came across the word hardwood veneer cover? What does that mean? Is it the same as wood? Is it higher or lower quality? Let's start with what veneer is.

What is MDF?

My most recent furniture piece I made based on the fact that I am in a semi-transient state, hmm word choice? I guess I'm trying to say that I'm not completely rooted down yet, as in I love my little apartment but soon I may want to actually buy my own place instead of just paying rent every month which in all honestly I'll never see again. So that means yet another possible move in my future. (BTW I despise moving, I never fail to lose something important.) So far I have moved a total of 8 times in the past 5 years, which is highly normal at my age, going back and forth to college. But that means that my furniture had it quite rough, almost all of my wooden tables, chairs etc had to be replaced after this last move. Amazingly, my Ikea bed, which is "wrought iron" survived  though all 8 moves and is still standing tall and study. I digress, wasn't I supposed to be talking about wood or something?
