The Amish Signature Mission Work Desk from DutchCrafters is among the best-selling Amish desks online. This desk’s popularity stems from its combination of traditional mission style and its functionality.
Your Desk, Your Size
At 48 to 84 inches wide, this desk offers a spacious workspace in whatever size works best for your space. Additionally, the desk stands 30″ tall and is available in standard depths of 24″ or 28″. However, as with any made-to-order furniture from DutchCrafters, if the numerous options don’t quite work for you, you can always customize the desk dimensions for your space.
Mission Style Desk
This desk features a typical mission-style design. The 3 biggest signifiers of Mission style are visible Mortise-and-Tenon accents, square vertical slats, and Quarter Sawn White Oak wood.
First, the mortise-and-tenon accents are visible at the top and bottom of each leg, extending through the leg with a rounded tenon.
Secondly, square, vertical slats span the entire width of the desk side, spaced evenly throughout. Vertical slats are likely the most telltale indicator of mission furniture, and this desk is no exception.
Lastly, the desk is seen here in Quarter Sawn White Oak wood finished with Michael’s Cherry stain. This unique cut of Oak wood is stronger than the traditional cut and leaves a characteristic speckled and striped pattern. Michael’s Cherry is a popular mid-tone brown stain with a hint of red tone. You may replace both the wood type and stain color with alternatives through this desk’s standard options. Your wood options include brown maple, oak, cherry, hard maple, and walnut, and each carries numerous stain options.
Your Mission Work Desk Options
A few additional options relate to drawers: a pencil tray or fold-down keyboard tray, whether or not to include side drawers, and the type of drawer slides. An optional corner unit allows for an added credenza. And a solid wood mini organizer can be added to the piece in a matching finish. The final options are for built-in power outlets and to select your favorite hardware. Want to make changes that aren’t in the options? Simply ask a furniture specialist about customization.
Desk Delivery Options
After placing your order, you’ll have a chance to exercise patience as Amish woodworkers make your desk to your specifications. This is an opportunity to measure your home and make sure the desk will fit not just in its space, but also through the doorways. At 24 to 28 inches deep, this mission work desk’s standard sizes will comfortably fit through standard doorways. However, at lengths of up to 84″, turning corners will be the greatest challenge. We encourage you to consider any hallways or stairways the desk will need to pass through and measure to ensure it will fit.
With standard delivery, your desk will be unloaded off the truck and it will be your responsibility to move it into your home or office and set it up in the proper room. If you’re worried about the size or weight of the desk, we recommend you select “white glove inside delivery.” Our drivers will bring the desk into your home, set it up in the room, and remove all packaging for you.
