The price of a solid wood Book Shelves is dependent on the quality of wood and design workmanship. The quality of wood is defined by the type of wood used, thickness, shape & length of sections. Know more about these factors and how they impact the price.
High quality solid wood furniture are made of hardwoods like Teak, Sheesham and Mango. They cost more but tend to last much longer than cheaper softwoods like rubber woods.
From a quality& price point of view, the order of material is as follows : Teak >Sheesham>Mango>rubber wood>plywood> MDF> engineered wood(also known as particle board)
Thickness, Shape & Length of Sections:
More the wood used in construction higher is the durability and cost. Thicker and sturdy sections last longer, and cost more. Hence pay some attention to the legs and other structural features of the furniture.
Even among sections with the same thickness, a curved or bent design consumes more wood and hence is more expensive than a straight design. Longer sections are more expensive because they have to be cut from older and taller trees. Table tops made with longer sections of wood will have fewer joints and will last longer.
Grain of wood :
Wood cut from the core of a mature tree will have darker and uniform grains and is more expensive. One can also see some dark streaks in the wood that add to its beauty.
Chemically treated wood is termite free and pest resistant and will have no surface cracks. Process of chemical treatment using Copper Sulphate, Sodium Nitrate and Urea is slow and time consuming and hence wood becomes more expensive when treated properly.
Wood is polished on the surface after initial sanding to prevent exchange of moisture with the atmosphere in different seasons, which increases the cost.
