An upholstered product frame needs to be judged on strength, the ability to absorb punishment and
proportion design to insure a comfortable and long lasting support structure for the suspension and
Frame construction can vary from air dried plywood, which is glued and stapled, to kiln dried hardwood
which is glued, doweled and corner blocked.
Shoreline Upholstery is constructed of 7/8" kiln dried hardwoods. All components are precision cut on
computer controlled machine tools for precision and repeatability. All wood joints are interlocked,
glued, and reinforced with corner blocks to provide long term strength and durability.
