Supply Shortages

What began as minor shortages in shipments quickly took a turn for the worst - from glue to foam to poly and then even wood. As the first shortages started affecting orders, the Woodshops became backed up and overwhelmed. Half complete orders sat and filled shops as they awaited the delivery of the necessary supplies and continued to receive new orders. Many of these shops are very small spaces connected to the properties of the Amish families operating them. Once supplies arrived, the Woodshops finished orders as fast as possible. Sometimes, however, they were informed it would be another 6-12+ months - or in some cases, they would not be coming at all. This predicament led to many cancellations, order adjustments, and, most importantly, more time spent on the same orders. Hence, the beginning of the Lead Time increases you will see across the board in the furniture industry right now.

 

Hand Crafted Solid Wood Furniture

Another contributing reason to this increase in production time is what sets our furniture apart from the mass-produced options you can buy on any major site. That is the Amish handcrafted nature of all our products. Every order placed through DutchCrafters results in a one-of-a-kind piece, crafted and finished meticulously by hand. Of course, it is only natural that you can expect this to take significantly longer than websites with next-day delivery or even same-day delivery. But the result is a solid wood piece you can impregnate with memories and pass down for generations to come.

 

Staffing

The challenge of staffing is not exclusive to the furniture industry. Still, its effects are substantial. A Sales Representative to connect to, hands in the Woodshop, drivers to transfer and deliver your order - all positions that have experienced staffing issues and determine how quickly we can get your order to you. With time, this will improve. But it is a process where both patience and understanding are required.
