The only exception to the solid wood rule is cribs with a panel headboard. These use MDF in the panels, with a cherry or walnut veneer on both sides. The exception to this is Cypress Point, which is solid pine, including the panels in the headboard.
All composite wood products (MDF, particleboard, plywood) we use comply with California CARB Phase 2 standards for formaldehyde content. This means they already comply with the upcoming federal limits on formaldehyde emissions.

All the composite wood products (MDF, particleboard, plywood) we use comply with California CARB Phase 2 standards for formaldehyde content. This means they already comply with the upcoming federal limits on formaldehyde emissions.
We use a durable, non-toxic lacquer finish. We test our finishes for lead, phthalates, cadmium, and other heavy metals and harmful substances.
