Dovetail Joints Make for Strong College Furniture from University Loft

gradDovetail 72If you are looking for strong college furniture for the dorm room and student housing, the university furniture from University Loft has many features that make it the strongest around. Maybe you know that we use solid wood and that our wood is stronger than Northern Red Oak. Maybe you know that we use larger posts than required in our college bunk beds. Maybe you know that our craftspersons use state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques for the best made-in-America quality. But one of the features that makes our residence life furnishings such strong college furniture can be found in our joining techniques; in particular the way we join our college desk and dresser drawers – with English dovetail joints.

These superior holding joints are called dovetail joints because they resemble the angled fan design of a dove’s tail. And because they interlock with angles that result pullout, they are the most durable type of joint connection used in strong college furniture construction today. And that’s why University Loft builds our college desks and dressers using this superior technique.
