REAL WOOD?

Real wood refers to furniture whose exterior surfaces are constructed of solid wood planks, with veneers used on the backs, shelves and drawer interiors. Solid wood takes a finish nicely; it wears well, can be refinished, and will last for generations. McAleer’s carries real wood furniture as well as veneer and laminate.

WHAT IS VENEER?

Furniture made with thin sheets of wood glued to a substrate, that produces a high quality smooth surface. Veneer can be made of cherry, mahogany, walnut, oak, etc. and stained in various shades and colors. This material resists warping and blemishing. It looks as elegant as solid wood but is more durable and less expensive.

WHAT IS LAMINATE?

Furniture made with printed sheets of wood that are adhered to core material It is ideal for high-traffic areas, requires little to no maintenance. The materials are highly durable and have a scratch resistant surface. FYI, Not all laminates are created equally. What we have at McAleer’s is high quality and designed to last, unlike others found online and in big box stores.

Vertical File

Vertical files allow you to file front to back and are available in both letter and legal widths. Different grades of files exist for commercial use or occasional (light use), some have ball bearing suspensions and others have nylon rollers. They typically extend out into the room by 25”-28.5”.
