Touch the inside of the drawers to see if it feels rough. Low quality furniture usually feels very rough. The better pieces of furniture also have dust panels between drawers. Do not hesitate to ask for a lower price if you do not see dust panels or finds that the wood inside the drawers is rough.

The furniture may not last long when joined in that way.
