Arlin and Joyce head the team at their woodshop in Goshen, Indiana. It is here that they craft solid wood furniture including cozy breakfast nooks, special storage trunks and chests for bedrooms, and welcoming benches with storage for beautiful entryways.
The Valley Collection is rich with the details that make Amish furniture special, like dovetailed joinery for the strongest joints, custom options and solid wood construction. You can count on every piece of the Valley to be handcrafted with premium quality wood. Attention is paid to every detail, contributing to the heirloom quality you expect from Amish furniture.
Which woods are used for the Valley Collection? We’re glad you asked. Arlin and Joyce offer a wide variety of wood types to pick from. You can go with oak with its prominent wood grain, smooth and sophisticated cherry, the natural rough appeal of hickory, the dark tones of walnut, rustic woods that feature more knots and markings, and more. You can sample these wood types before building your bench or nook; we’ll mail samples right to your door so you can discover their magic.
Magical Nooks and Entryways
These magical wood nooks create spaces where family can gather to eat, play, talk or sip morning coffee together. Choose from pedestal, trestle or traditional leg bases. Storage is a feature on many nooks. This daily-use furniture will last for decades and look great doing so. Beautiful entryway benches are built to welcome you inside the door, and offer a place to stow away your bag, sit and change shoes in comfort and style.
Benches are a specialty for the Amish Valley Collection woodshop. There are a number of designs to consider, from Mission to rustic to modern. There are storage options you can add when you need to add a lot. Raised panels draw attention for some, while for others it’s the addition of a mirror that sets off the piece. Mortise and tenon construction, a hallmark of fine craftsmanship, is utilized for pieces in this collection.
Custom Chests and Trunks
Trunks and chests are loved for their storage and style. Storing photo albums, treasured keepsakes, extra blankets and more, these beauties are wonderful to have and make terrific gift ideas for loved ones. Explore all the chests and trunks the Valley Collection has to offer, and you’ll find premium quality joinery techniques, raised panels showcasing beautiful wood patterns, arched designs as well as straight lines, and custom options like tray inserts and cedar bottoms.
Remember, custom furniture is our specialty here at DutchCrafters. Don’t hesitate to ask us if you see a piece in this collection that you’d like customized.
