Starter Units & Add On Units
These are assemblies that are made of solid wood "Uprights" and "Freestanding Kits"  Click here to see how our units are assembled

Horizontal Surfaces are made of Solid Select Pine (Shelves)
Actual forest locations of our sourced material is noted further down this page. Our lumber comes from FSC Certified forests.

Vertical Surfaces are made of Solid Select Hemlock (Uprights, cross rails, drawer fronts and doors)
Actual forest locations of our sourced material is noted further down this page. Our lumber comes from FSC Certified forests.

Uprights are manufactured from clear, Solid Hemlock. Two 1-3/8" x 1-5/8" stiles have a 3/8" wide x 5/8" deep plow the entire height to receive shelf end channels and are drilled with 3/16" diameter holes on 1" centers to allow for shelf adjustability. Stiles are locked together with two or more cross members mortised into the stiles. All components are machined smooth with all outside corners eased. Uprights are available unfinished or in clear water based lacquer or select tinted or painted water based finishes.

Shelves are manufactured of approximately 3/4" solid select pine.
All shelf materials are machined to accept formed aluminum extrusions shaped to fit into a routed slot on the end of the shelf and to rest on the shelf support pins.  Shelves are available unfinished or in clear water based lacquer or select tinted or painted water based finishes.

Cross Rails (Freestanding Kits) are manufactured from 3/4"thick Solid Hemlock. This kit includes 4 boards and hardware. Two boards connect uprights at the bottom and two connect at the top to create a Starter Frame or Add On Frame. Bolts and special embedded barrel nuts are used to securely bolt frames together. A simple "Allen" wrench is all that is needed to screw the boards together with the uprights (Allen wrench is included).

About our Solid Lumber:
Hemlock and Pine are in the same family species. We have used Pine as our primary wood source for over 75 years (All world wide locations use solid pine). Hemlock is used for all vertical surfaces as it has little to no knots. Both are considered one of the most sustainable woods in the world as they are some of the fastest growing trees and most readily available wood sources.
Solid Maple is used in our drawers. This is wood is considerably more expensive but needed to hold our very detailed and precise German Dovetail joinery on all four corners (See image below).

Our Typical Solid Hemlock Inventory

We manufacture with Hemlock and Pine as they are in the same family species. All vertical surfaces are made out of solid Hemlock (Uprights, cross rails, drawer fronts) and all horizontal surfaces are made out of solid pine (Shelves only). Hemlock has little to no knots. Any knots in pine are sanded and filled if needed for a smooth finish. Our drawers are made out of solid maple (Maple is considerably more expensive, but needed to hold our intricate German dovetail joinery)

Lundia Solid Wood Upright Stiles in Production



Our drawers are made of 5/8"thick solid wood sides (4 sides) and then we have a 3/4"thick solid wood drawer front. All joints are finely crafted German Dovetail, guaranteed to last you for life. Compare our drawers. You will not find a better made drawer than ours.
Professional Cabinet or Furniture makers will tell you that the Hallmark of quality in ANY piece of furniture starts with the drawer. If you want to verify the quality of a wood desk or furniture piece, open the drawers. Look at how the drawer box is assembled. Because the drawer is constantly moving and taking abuse it will be the first item to breakdown.

The cheapest drawers are made with butt joints or slip joints. Only the finest craftsmen will use German Dovetail construction. It is the most durable joinery in woodworking. Some manufacturers will use a combination of dovetail and butt joints. Our drawer boxes have German Dovetails at all four corners.

Next look how many "Sides" there are. Our drawers are called a 5 sided drawer box. That is because the drawer itself is manufactured as a separate box. Then the drawer front is attached afterward. If the drawer front is actually the front of the box, you will eventually pull apart the joints. Every time you pull on a drawer you a putting pressure on the front joints of a 4 sided drawer box. A 5 sided drawer box like ours eliminates that problem.

Hardware Slides
We use top of the line "Accuride brand" ball bearing, full suspension slides. These are commercial rated slides and are smooth closing. Full suspension means that your entire drawer will pull out for easier access to the entire drawer interior (Some companies will use less expensive slides that only pull out part way).

We ONLY use Solid Pine and Hemlock from FSC Certified Forests.


All of our lumber comes from FSC Certified Green Forests.
We use several sources for our Pine and Hemlock including the Collins 96,000 acre Lakeview Forest in Klamath County Order, the 94,000 acre Almanor Forest tucked into the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California and Sierra Pacific Industries Timberlands in Whatcom, Skagit and Snohomish counties of Washington State.

Sierra Pacific Link:

Sustainable harvesting can be defined as a method of harvesting that provides a constant supply of wood resources throughout the landscape, with future timber yields unaffected or improved by current harvesting methods. ... Foresters emulate natural disturbances with their harvesting methods to maintain these balances.

Our lumber is harvested in these forests using "Single Tree Selection". Typically, the harvest is only 2 to 4 trees that are hand selected per acre of forest. This is the most responsible method of harvesting trees. In addition to protecting the forest, this type of forestry also protects wildlife. For example, Trees are inspected for wildlife before selection. Trees are never harvested if they contain nests. Excessive bird droppings (White Wash) marking the bowl or ground around the tree are examples of nest indicators. Harvesting by Single Tree Selection, the "Light Touch" has maintained a sustained balance between vegetation and wildlife not found using more intensive methods to harvest trees.  Source:


Particle board is made of thousands of small wood chunks glued together with formaldehyde resin. It's is the least expensive material for making wood products.

Particle Board is the core panel that is used for melamine panels


Melamine is simply particle board or MDF with a printed paper material attached to one or both sides of the particle board. It is the least expensive material for making wood products with a simulated appearance of real wood.

  This is the material used by California Closets, Closets by Design, Closet World, Container World, Ikea, Closet Maid and Home Depot.


MDF is particle board made with extremely fine wood particles instead of wood chunks. The benefit of MDF is that it is stronger than standard particle board and can be routed and/or painted. However, standard MDF contains more formaldehyde as more resin is needed to bond the smaller particles.   This material is commonly used by cabinet makers as a lower cost alternative to plywood and covered with paper melamine, plastic laminate (HPL) or actual wood veneer.


Plywood is several layers or ply's of wood that are all glued together to form a plywood panel. There are numerous quality levels of plywood depending on the material, the amount of layers and the glue used to make the plywood. Glue on standard plywood contains formaldehyde, although not nearly as much as particle board. Glue on Soy Based Plywood is made out of soy bean and contains no formaldehyde.   This is the material used most often by cabinet makers for custom cabinetry. This is typically considered the best material next to solid wood.



Solid Wood is cut directly from the tree and milled to different thicknesses. It is then surfaced/planed into dimensions prepped for final use....typically made in 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" and 2" thicknesses for cabinet use. The lumber industry describes the thickness of solid wood in "Rough" dimensions after it has been cut in the mill but before it is surfaced smooth into it's final thickness. That is why a 2" x 4" is actually only 1 1/2"thick. It was cut at 2"thick before being surfaced smooth.   This is the material used by Lundia USA (aka SimpleCloset). It requires more skilled labor and much more involved manufacturing processes. A cabinet frame made out of melamine/particle board will have 4 pieces. That same frame made out of solid wood will require 14 separate solid wood parts.


  We cannot "Guarantee" exactly how much weight our shelves will hold.

As you can see by this dated photo, our shelving is built to hold a tremendous amount of weight. However, we do not recommend holding a dozen men on our shelves!

Lundia shelving will deflect if it is overloaded. If you are going to load heavy books, we recommend shorter shelving lengths (i.e. 24", 30" or 36"widths). A 42" or 48" shelf may show slight deflection on heavy loads.

We have included photos below to show you how our shelves can deflect based on the shelf width and how much weight. All the shelves below are 12" deep for our example.

  Our 24"wide Solid Wood Shelf with 500 lbs of weight.
Notice that there is still NO deflection in the shelf
(Compare the line of the yellow string to the shelf)


IMPORTANT: We do not guarantee the weight capacities or how much weight will make your shelf deflect. This is to give you a general idea. Since wood is a natural product, every shelf can and will react differently to weight.
