Special skills learned by Amish furniture makers
By Patricia Stephens
Amish furniture makers possess unique skills passed down from generation to generation. Because these skills are deeply rooted in tradition, the crafters can create high-quality, handcrafted furniture pieces like the offerings in our store.

Another skill that Amish artisans possess is an understanding of design principles. While they often stick to traditional styles, they also incorporate elements of functionality and practicality into their work. In design-speak, they can balance aesthetics with usability, resulting in beautiful and functional furniture.
Since they are not factory workers who mass produce every piece, Amish furniture makers can focus on being patient and precise. Each item is carefully crafted by hand, making sure every joint is secure, every surface is smooth, and every piece fits together seamlessly.

We offer custom options for most of the pieces presented on our site. Customizing items is something we are able to offer inside our physical store location in Mesa, AZ, since we have to be sure everyone is on the same page with details regarding customizations and we have found that in-person is the best way to do that and ensure customer satisfaction with the finished custom item.  In addition, we provide more material options to ensure that you take home a beautiful product that will fit your interior or exterior spaces. You can visit us at our store at 1660 S. Alma School Rd. #100, Mesa, Arizona, to learn more about our Amish furniture and custom furniture pieces. Or you can call us at (480) 336-2144.
