Classic American Furniture, of the Colonial and Federal periods, was built to last by caring men who thoroughly understood their tools, materials and craft. Today, our dedicated Mennonite & Amish furniture makers undergo a long apprenticeship to develop keen eyes and skilled hands, and these expert craftsmen enjoy building Your legacy quality furniture with the same unhurried care – providing you with exceptional furniture and outstanding value.
However, Classic American Furniture was often compromised by the ability of the early craftsmen to work with hard woods, like oak and cherry, so that chair seats were relatively flat and the requirement to resort to use of softer woods was common.
Today, our Mennonite Furniture Studios Workshop contains modern CNC wood shaping equipment that allows us to rough out deeply sculpted seats and the uniformly symmetrical shapes that modern furniture buyers demand. This investment in modern equipment is an absolute necessity for us to offer you the quality furniture that you desire, made from premium American Hardwoods that can stand the test of time, at an affordable price. The roughed-out shapes that we produce are then handed over to our Amish Craftsmen for final hand-tooling before they use these components to build and finish your furniture completely by hand.
Then, our Amish Master Craftsmen hand-build and hand-finish every piece of our American Hardwood Heirloom Furniture entirely without the use of electrically powered tools. Each piece that they build and finish, using only hand tools like saws, planes, hammers, chisels, drills, sand paper…, is an act of worship for them and a true piece of modern hand-built craftsmanship for you.
No matter which tree species you choose for your table, every hardwood piece that comes out of our workshop is made from hand-picked premium-quality American Hardwood.
Our Amish Master Table Craftsmen use traditional hand carpentry skills and techniques like dovetails, mortise and tenon joints, using wooden pegs… endowing our hand-built hardwood tables with integrity of design for strength and durability, and of course the beauty of natural premium-quality hardwood.
Once our Craftsmen are satisfied that your hand-built table is the best that it can possibly be, it is sent to our Finishing Craftsmen where a stain color of your choice will bring out the natural features in the wood grain and a crystal clear finish will protect your furniture with beauty and durability.
No matter which tree species you choose for your chairs and stools, every hardwood piece that comes out of our workshop is made from hand-picked premium-quality American Hardwood.
Our Master Chair Craftsmen dedicate themselves to the careful assembly of our most intricately fitted chair and stool parts in a way that only Amish Craftsmen have the patience to do. They are blessed with the rare ability of being able to fit the most complicated compound angles of windsor chairs together, by hand, with ease.
They find peace and joy in creating our most comfortably dished and beautifully hand-crafted chair seats out of the carefully selected naturally grained pieces of hardwood that we choose for your furniture.
Their patient attention to detail is easily appreciated when viewing their perfectly drilled compound angles for each spindle and leg, and their finely sanded components brought to ideal final smoothness.
They particularly enjoy the challenge of constructing custom chairs or the occasional custom barstool.
You can rest assured that eachy beautiful furniture piece that our chair team builds by hand will look exactly right, and also be durable enough to last for generations.
Every chair built by this team of dedicated craftsmen is an expression of faith and a furniture masterpiece. Like all of our other clients, we are confident that You will be absolutely happy with every aspect of Your chairs produced by our team of Amish Master Craftsmen
