Identifying Furniture FYI

MikkAugust 7, 2011

Just a quick note for those asking for information on furniture pieces. "The devil is in the details".

As well as photos of the over-all piece, and to acurately identify it, it's important to include descriptions and photos of the construction points and hardware. Photo table undersides, back sides of skirt attatchments, extention mechanisms, etc.

Chair/cabinet/table legs... glued and screwed?, nailed?, crimp and compressoin?, screwed?, pegged?.

Drawer construction, backing material, slide descriptions, finished inside and out?

Mirror backs, glass edges, what type of mountings? Shelf supports?

To name a few :-)
