How long does it take to build my Amish furniture?
Your furniture build time will vary based on the product, woodshop, and season. However, here we show you the 3 steps you can anticipate in the build process of your furniture. Refer to the build time listed on the product page and communicated after purchase for the best estimate. Following the build process, you will be contacted by shippers to schedule delivery of your furniture. Please allow a couple weeks for delivery of your furniture beyond the build time.
First, your custom order is processed and sent to an Amish woodshop in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. There, they build the furniture set using time-honored techniques. This may take a number of weeks to a couple months, depending on the complexity of the project.
Secondly, the furniture is either moved to the finishing department in the same shop or transferred to an Amish wood finishing shop. With DutchCrafters, and only with us, are you guaranteed that your set will all be finished together, even if it is built in different states. This is the only way to ensure that the finish will match.
Thirdly, the furniture goes through multiple passes of staining and sanding using the best techniques for a beautiful finish. It is varnished and undergoes final assembly. The finishing process necessitates drying time for the furniture between coats, so this finishing process will always take time.
Finally, delivery drivers collect your furniture and contact you to arrange delivery of your furniture. Shop Custom Furniture
