A modern day Chest of Drawers will quite likely be made of something like Chipboard or MDF. Chipboard or particle board (called by different names in different countries), is made up of tiny chips of wood all glued together and pressed by machine into flat boards, usually 12mm or 18mm thick. These wood chips come from unused or unusable sized pieces of wood at the timber mill and also from recycling old wooden furniture. These boards can be veneered and are used in flat pack furniture, where the purchaser buys the furniture and has to assemble it by their self. Even buying ready made furniture from a store, there is a possibility that it has been delivered to the shop as flatpack and has been assembled by the staff.
Many people believe that when it comes to quality you cant beat an Antique Chest of Drawers. These will usually be hand made, using traditional woodworking joints such as dovetails and using a good quality wood. These woods are very expensive these days, or in some cases are a protected species and banned from being imported.
Choosing a right kind of plastic chest drawers is really important, as the person should have a clear idea about the space available in the room where these chests will be placed. Another important aspect could be the decision, that whether one would like to buy a large drawer unit or a unit with number of small drawers. It is also important to think over the pattern of drawers that one is looking forward to purchase.
