Construction: Most parts** of items in the Monterey collection are made from a combination of Engineered Woods, a mixture of high-quality, hard and soft wood materials, which generally come from the surplus of the original lumber processing. Commonly referred to as MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and Composite Wood, these materials are wood fibers bonded together with a synthetic resin in a process that combines high heat and pressure to make a very stable, environmentally friendly product. The result is dense, strong panels of fiberboard and/or particleboard (composite wood), which are then laminated with durable, attractive finishes. **The back panel of Monterey pieces is heavy-gauge cardboard. The side that faces the wall is unfinished; the visible side is finished with laminate that matches the rest of the piece.
