Amish hunt boards serve modern needs in classic style

by Tom Grimes

Once a common sight in southern homes, hunt boards were traditionally used to serve drinks to hunters thirsty from a day in the woods. For a time these pieces sat in the entrance hall of one's home but have over the years migrated into the dining area.

An Amish-made hunt board will elegantly hold your family's treasures for years to come. Their solid wood construction promises generations of use. The quality of the Queen Anne sideboard is readily apparent with its dovetail drawers and concealed door hinges and the piece is well-suited to placement in either the dining room or an entranceway.

A piece like the Fresno sideboard more readily lends itself to use in the dining room. It boasts slots for plate and glasswear in the center and blends traditional country charm with sharp modern edges, more than satisfying the tastes of today's dining room.

Whatever your hunt board needs may be, there is an heirloom-quality Amish-made piece that will satisfy them. This beautiful, handmade furniture more than serves its function and will help readers escape from the sameness of modern tastes.
