Other Important Tips and Tricks

*Wood is highly sensitive to extreme changes in temperature and humidity. During the heating period a standard good-quality humidifier should be used to control and regulate humidity. The most favorable environment for your furniture is a relative humidity ranging between 45% and 70% and a constant temperature of approximately 68˚F. Sudden fluctuations in temperature must be avoided as the furniture might be influenced negatively.

*If doors or drawers do not appear to fit properly, first check to see whether your furniture is sitting level on the floor. If not you may want to adjust with leveling glides to ensure proper functionality. Furniture can settle into carpeting or rugs, if doors and doors begin to bind, the leveling glides may need to be adjusted

*If you need to remove a drawer please follow these directions: Our drawers have a metal release that is fastened to the upper most part of the back of the drawer. Simply turn the release a ¼ turn and the drawer will slide out completely.

*If the wooden drawer is tough to move in and out, there is an inexpensive solution to remedy solid wood drawers; simply take Paraffin wax, bees wax or bar soap and gently rub it on the glide or rail.
