Many people like to choose solid wood furniture when buying furniture. Compared with furniture made of other materials, solid wood furniture is a very environmentally friendly furniture material. It has a natural scent, clear texture and good decoration, so solid wood furniture has always won the favor of many consumers. But some solid wood furniture will crack, bend, and deform after using it for a while. Why does solid wood furniture crack? Let us take this question together to understand the reason for cracking solid wood furniture!
1.The natural characteristics of wood
We all know that there are many types of trees, and their structural composition is different. Even if they are the same type of tree, the nature of each part is not uniform. In other words, wood itself is a material that is not stable enough. Even the same tree species and the same tree will not have the same wood properties because of the different positions of sawn timber. This instability is more obvious under the effect of different moisture content of wood. When the humidity in the air changes, the moisture in the wood will increase or decrease, which will cause the wood to expand or contract, and the solid wood furniture will deform and crack. In addition, affected by climate and temperature, solid wood furniture is also prone to cracking if improperly maintained.
2. Processing technology of solid wood furniture
As each furniture manufacturer has different production processes and different machines and equipment, no matter in the process of manufacturing or the structural design of the furniture, some furniture manufacturers will have more or less improper handling which will cause deformation and cracking of the furniture afterwards. For example, poor quality of wood drying, too thorough drying, large water content differences, or inadequate wood curing cycles will cause the stress remaining in the wood to act, thereby causing the wood to crack or deform.
3. Daily use of solid wood furniture
Even if you buy solid wood furniture of good quality, if you use it improperly every day, it will be prone to deformation and cracking after a long time. For example, if you place solid wood furniture in a place that is too dry, humid, or exposed to the sun, the moisture content of the wood itself will easily change, which will cause cracking problems. In addition, if the placement of solid wood furniture is uneven, it may also cause its overall frame to deform, and the door panel will also be deformed due to uneven force.
How should solid wood furniture prevent cracking？
Before we buy solid wood furniture, we should not choose blindly. We should choose the appropriate type of solid wood furniture according to its use environment. For some areas with high temperature, humidity or sun exposure, it is not recommended to use ordinary solid wood furniture. We should choose more stable quality wood according to the environment used. For solid wood furniture, we should pay attention to avoiding them from strong light. It is best to regularly maintain the furniture, remove dust or clean it in time.
