The Lancaster Collection

About the Woodshop:

The craftsmen behind the Lancaster Collection have been handcrafting chairs since 1974, and have gained a reputation in the Lancaster County area as premier chair builders. Their chairs, benches, bar stools, and rockers feature timeless designs and demonstrate the highest quality of handcrafted furniture.

Lancaster chairs feature molded seats and tilted backs for optimum comfort. Having crafted chairs for almost 4 decades, these craftsmen take into consideration all the smallest details, and have the knowledge and experience for perfection. They use mortise and tenon, and steam-bent construction for beauty, strength, and durability. All Lancaster chairs are crafted from premium American hardwoods such as solid oak, cherry, or maple.

In most cases, no assembly is required; minor assembly may be required on some desk chairs and bar stools.

The Lancaster Collection has become a favorite among our customers. We've sold more chairs from the Lancaster Collection than all other chair collections combined! Call us today to speak to an Amish furniture specialist and find out why! 1-866-272-6773.

More on Lancaster Collection Dining Room Chairs:

The Amish chairs that reside in the Lancaster Collection are handcrafted with the highest attention to detail, resulting in maximum strength, durability, beauty and comfort. The features of our dining chairs include…

Solid Hardwood Construction - Each dining chair is made from select hardwoods such as oak, cherry, or maple. The wood is carefully inspected throughout the construction process for strength, precision, and uniformity in grain. There is a zero tolerance for imperfections, resulting in a perfectly handcrafted chair.

Steam Bending - Bent chair parts are used extensively in the building of our chairs. Wood is first steamed for flexibility, then shaped and clamped in forms until it is set. Steam-bent wood provides beauty and comfort in your dining chair.

Press-Back Details - The traditional pressback designs that are featured on a variety of our dining chairs are produced in a special embossing process. Wood is placed in a heated die press with over 100 tons of pressure. This leaves a permanently "engraved" pattern in the chair back.

Turned-Leg Details - Turned spindles enhance chairs with character and beauty.

Mortise and Tenon Joinery - Mortise and tenon joints create a stable, tight-fitting chair. Simple and strong, the mortise and tenon joint has been used for millennia by woodworkers around the world to join two pieces of wood, most often at an angle near 90 degrees. The basic idea is that the end of one piece of wood is inserted into a hole cut in another piece of wood. The end of the first piece of wood is called the tenon, and it is usually narrowed with respect to the rest of the piece. The hole in the second piece of wood is called the mortise. Our chair legs then receive a single screw to add even more stability to the chair.

Corner Block - Frame chair legs are secured with corner blocks under the seat. Corner Blocks provide a solid structure for the whole chair adding extra stability to the leg-seat union.

Molded Seats - All dining chair wooden seats are cut and molded to a contour for maximum comfort.

Lancaster Collection Finish Options:

An otherwise perfect chair can be ruined by a poor finish job. Our dining chairs are hand-finished with a two part catalyzed stain for maximum protection and enhanced beauty. The chairs are carefully inspected for uniformity in color and clarity in application.

The Lancaster Collection Distressed Finishing character lines and age marks may not be prized in people, but they certainly are in furniture. We offer a light and heavy distressed finish package which can include indentations, pin holes, simulated cracks and sand-through highlights at common wear points. For example, the table and chair legs will look like shoes and brooms have scuffed them over the years. And to guess from the knob, the drawer has been opened a thousand times.

We also offer custom distressing with your choice of which effects you prefer. Please note furniture distressing is not for everyone so please be sure that this package is what you want before you place your order. We do not accept furniture returns.

Distressed paint finishes are hand rubbed to simulate years of wear. Upon request we can distress with worm holes, ding, simulated cracks and spoke-shaved corners. This is not a standard feature of our distressed look.

Light Distressing - Customers can expect to receive glazing to replicate a rich natural patina, light distressing, slightly eased edges, nicks and pinholes.

Heavy Distressing - Our ultimate antique finish. Rub-through of the rich patina are masterfully punctuated with another level of nicks, pin holes, eased edges, simulated cracks and other distressing techniques to bespeak several centuries of robust wear and loving care.

***If 'Not Distressed' is selected chair will be painted without any distressing at all.

***Only painted cherry and maple give the look presented on the sample paint chips. Oak wood allows the grain pattern to distinctly shown through the paint finish. Samples are available upon request.

We can accommodate a variety of Two Tone Paint and/or stain options as well. If this option is selected upon order, you will be contact by a sales representative to determine your desired combination.
