Each Amish furniture product is unique, but your furniture’s build process may look something like this.
Placing Your Order
After your DutchCrafters order is placed it’s sent to an Amish woodworking shop in Ohio, Indiana, or Pennsylvania.
Built to Last in Amish Woodshops
Here, in these small woodworking shops in the farmland of these rural communities, it is built by hand to your specifications with premium construction techniques and authentic materials. Our outstanding Amish woodworkers cut no corners in their desire to create outstanding furniture for their customers. The materials—solid hardwoods and rust-resistant hardware—set the stage for an outstanding final product. The construction techniques—mortise-and-tenon joinery, dovetailed joints, and much more—are proven to withstand the wear and tear of years of use. And the quality assurance of these experts checking over the entire piece before it leaves their door ensures that your furniture will be just what you dreamed of.
Some pieces are finished at the same shop where they were built while others are sent together to an Amish finishing shop. Unless your woodshop finishes the product themselves, we’ll ensure that your furniture is finished consistently through our partnerships with some of the best finish shops in the business.
The Finishing Process
Our furniture is finished using time-honored techniques, with options and techniques including wood distressing, sandblasting, sanding, glazes, and stain wiped off by hand. Then a top coat of catalyzed conversion varnish is applied to offer protection and add a beautiful semi-gloss sheen.
After the finish has dried, the furniture is taken by our delivery drivers who will contact you to set up delivery to your home or business. If you’ve ordered White Glove Inside Delivery, it will be brought into your home by your driver and assembled in its new home. Then, they’ll remove all packaging. If you selected standard shipping, your furniture will be delivered to your home but you will be responsible for taking it into your home and assembling the furniture.
