Copeland's drawer fronts are solid wood, 3/4" thick. Drawer sides and backs are also solid wood - cherry, maple or ash - and are a full 5/8" thick. Drawer bottoms are 1/4" high-grade plywood panels (5 Layer baltic birch).
You'll notice that our drawers are joined with an asymmetrical English dovetail joint. Asymmetrical refers to the fact that the pins (seen on the drawer front) and tails (seen on the drawer side) are of different widths. This is the gold standard in traditional joinery and is both aesthetically and structurally superior to other common techniques.
The drawer front integrates directly with the drawer side. Often you will find furniture where the drawer front is simply screwed on to a pre-existing drawer box. This is usually because the manufacturer has opted to purchase pre-manufactured drawer boxes rather than going to the trouble of designing, engineering and building the components to match their individual designs. Sadly, many manufacturers who market themselves as Made in the USA engage in this practice, effectively outsourcing components that make up nearly half of the product.
Some manufacturers cut corners, leaving drawer boxes unfinished. Not only is this unsightly, it is potentially hazardous to your clothing. Delicate garments can be snagged or even torn on rough unsanded surfaces and this becomes more pronounced with age as the unprotected wood is exposed to changing humidity. Copeland's drawer boxes are fully finished and sanded on the interiors.
Solid Wood Case Sides
Solid Side construction means that the main vertical structural members are the 3/4” solid wood side panels. Contour case piece sides are finished with a detailing of rounded corner trim to the give the pieces a softer look. This simple but versatile form of construction can accept any number of decorative elements allowing a wide array of design expressions.
Each Contour case piece is constructed with either an Opel Laminated Glass top or a solid wood top. On the Opel Laminated Glass top, the glass is inset into the top of the piece so that it rests flush with the solid wood edges.
Contour’s legs are splayed at an inward angle of 45 degrees.
The Contour collection uses an Under Mounted Soft Close Glide on all bedroom, dining room and media case pieces. These full extension glides provide a gentle bump as the drawer is fully extended and a soft automatic retraction as the drawer closes. Since they are under mounted there is no visible hardware.
Select any of these finishes (Natural is a clear finish and not a stain).
