What Your Furniture Suppliers Do Not Want You To Know—Series Two.
Last time we had a discussion about the price of wood to make a piece of furniture. Hope everyone has a better idea about the cost of each wood. Now we continue our topic: how furniture manufacturers cut the material reconditely.

However, factory can make everything becomes true. For example, customer wants to buy black rose wood ($4000USD/Ton) furniture. You know what happens? Wood frame of the whole piece of furniture is made by black rose wood while backside, left side and right side are made by cheaper wood such as oak, pine and cherry. You might say I can still tell they are oak or pine or cherry. However, when most factories use cheaper wood, they will cover those cheap woods by around 3cm thickness black rose wood on the surface.
