It's amazing to think the Teamson Design Transportation Bookends stand at either end of a whole world of knowledge and fun. We are talking, of course, about the books you'll place in between these adorable transportation themed bookends. These children's bookends match an entire suite of whimsical Teamson transportation themed furniture also available. Beautifully illustrated cutouts - one of a car and one of a train - stand upright on the bookend bases, and the backstops of the bookends are hand-carved into the silhouette of the top edge of a helicopter. From the side, you can see the green and white striped edges that add a little pizzazz to the décor of your room. Made of sturdy MDF board, the bookends will last a good long time, and you can even pass them down as treasured heirlooms to your grandkids.
The Benefits of MDF/Engineered Wood
MDF is made of wood fibers and is highly compressed with adhesive. It's denser than particle board, and the surface is very smooth. MDF board is extremely strong and resistant to warping, and it's easy to cut, drill, and machine. It is used in the manufacture of furniture and accessories for schools, homes and offices. MDF is so strong that it's included in the construction of desks, high quality marker boards, work surfaces, pillars, and other products. MDF often is covered by laminates or veneers. It provides a sturdy substrate that supports the surface material and increases its longevity. MDF can be painted, stained, and/or grain-stamped to look like hard woods. Best of all, MDF saves money and can be good for the environment. By using recovered wood fiber, MDF contributes to reducing landfills, slowing deforestation and preserving habitats. Overall, MDF is an excellent value and a fine furniture material.
