When choosing a wooden piece of furniture, we definitely look at its resistance and the life time it has to offer us.

Wood by itself is an excellent material, if we add some treatment to it, we will also extend its useful life and preserve its properties. Surely you keep some wooden furniture that has passed from generation to generation, restored or unrestored.
