Dining Room and Kitchen Tables
While many American furniture makers lose way to foreign imports, the Amish are thriving in the furniture business in places like Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Holmes County, Ohio; and Shipshewana, Indiana. They’ve earned a well-deserved reputation for quality and value, practicing their art in places where American furniture has been made for generations. Amish woodworkers may be the best known for their hand crafted tables. Our tables are made of solid wood, through and through. They are individually handcrafted and assembled in an Amish woodworking shop, not built on an assembly line or in a factory. Our tables have a number of design features that showcase our Amish craftsmen’s deep understanding of wood and furniture making. All of our tables have a solid one-inch-thick table top for durability as well as an attractive appearance. Our tables include steam bent aprons with a slight gap inserted where the extensions fit to allow room for the natural contraction and expansion of solid wood. A number of our tables have apron gap covers to disguise the gap. Our Amish woodworkers use one of two assembly designs on their table legs: 1) the legs are inserted into the table frame with a mortise and tenon joint or 2) the legs are bolted to a v-groove corner block that is glued and screwed in place. Both styles provide extreme sturdiness and strength. Along with their solid design and heirloom quality manufacturing, our Amish made tables are available in many styles and sizes. We offer leg, pedestal and trestle tables. We have elegant Queen Anne tables, casual farm tables and sleek Mission and Shaker tables, among many other styles. Our wide range of sizes offers options for those with tight spaces—very difficult to find in this age of over-sized furniture—as well as those preparing for large parties or family gatherings. Nearly all of our tables are available with extensions, some with up to 20 extensions for maximum versatility. Our woodworkers choose the appropriate extension slides for the type of table to ensure ease in opening the table along with the proper durability. Most of our leg tables have wooden slides and our pedestal tables have gear slides. Many of the gear slides are equalizers, which allows for the table to be opened when just pulling on one end. This convenient function requires only one person to prepare the table with additional space and insert the extensions. Our woodworkers then finish the tables in the stain of your choice with a catalyzed lacquer or varnish. It is chosen to withstand years of wear. We offer a wide variety of stain and paint options to closely match existing furniture or fit the décor preferences of the customer. Our Amish tables are painstakingly made by hand, one piece at a time. Each table is individually crafted and inspected to become an heirloom quality piece of furniture that will awe your guests and be passed down to the next generation.
