Our furniture is manufactured in Fredonia, Arizona and China. All DreamBoxes, WorkBoxes and Ultimate SewingBoxes are made at our USA factory. Our USA factory uses CARB (California Air Resource Board) approved 3/4" manufactured wood with a melamine finish. No added formaldehyde. Using manufactured wood with melamine finish is very important to prevent warping and any panel size changes . For the many shelves we use, the main structure needs to be exact to secure a tight fit. Humid weather and other weather changes won't affect the shape of our furniture, similar to modern kitchen cabinets. The melamine finish is very easy to clean after crafting! Use Windex and a soft cloth to wipe away dirt and finger prints. Our USA factory manufactures **Knotty Alder doors from real wood, and white, gray, and black styles with Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and the highly sought after Rigid Thermofoil (RTF).
- What is RTF? It stands for Rigid Thermofoil. It is a very durable, low-maintenance material made to look like real wood, painted surfaces and more. Plastic-looking finishes are gone, replaced by wood grains and textures that are hard to distinguish from the real thing! They are longer lasting and easier to clean than ever! (Just soap and water)
- RTF doors and tables are very durable and will keep their color long after painted wood doors have started to fade. Resist Warping - Pristine vinyl-wrapped thermofoil doors and tables are less susceptible to humidity and warping than solid wood. (Used in our white and black styles)
- Thermofoil doors and tables(on our Ultimate SewingBox) offer the bright, clean and freshly painted appearance.
- Our surfaces save rainforests and use recycled wood chips for the component’s substrate.
