All drawer bottoms, backs of cabinets, even concealed components are solid wood, with no plywood or hardboard used.
All cabinet fittings utilised are of the highest quality. We use imported self closing pot-hinges on cabinet doors. And imported double extended stainless steel roller bearing slides on all drawers.
