I’m a regular reader of Hacker News and it is my favourite place to talk about hardware and software, so when I saw a story on Amazon’s hardware platform called Wood Dresser that listed the wood dressers that it was selling, I was intrigued.
The company says that it has over 2 million Wood Dressers available for $299.99, but I wasn’t sure what to expect.
“Wood Dresser offers high quality furniture at affordable prices,” the Amazon page said.
“The Wood Dressery is a great way to save on the furniture you need and to enjoy a great shopping experience.”
But what exactly is a Wood Dresserer?
I searched Amazon’s website and couldn’t find a clear description of the product.
So I reached out to Amazon to find out more.
In an email, the company said that the Wood Dressering is “a small, portable, folding wood frame that is built to be foldable and foldable again”.
So the Wood Danceers are “a way to store your furniture for use as a bed, a couch, a chair or a sofa”, Amazon said.
The Wood Danceerer also comes with a USB charging port.
But when I called the Wooddanceers company, the only one I got back was a voicemail message saying they were currently working on a product for the US.
I then emailed Wooddancers CEO Brian O’Neill and asked for an in-person interview.
He replied to my email that they were working on an in store demo.
At the demo, I saw that the product was built to fold and then fold again, but it wasn’t clear how this was supposed to work.
O’Neill said that Wooddancing’s product was “designed with durability in mind”.
“With our Wood Dressercards, you can take your furniture and make it fold and fold again,” he wrote.
It turns out that the company is working on two different models.
One is a foldable Wood Dressero.
This model has a metal frame that folds up to make a small tabletop that folds down when folded.
The other Woodderer has a plastic frame that has a fold down surface.
Both Woodderers have the same function, however.
They fold the furniture up to create a frame that can be stored in a drawer.
For the demo I took my chair, a bed and a sofa.
Wooddering’s Wood Dresserers are also available for a price of $249.99.
