      Hi Sarah,

      Byler’s Furniture and Cabinets
      3776 Deneve Road
      Marathon, NY 13803

      Go 5 1/2 miles north on Marathon-McGraw Road from the Northbound
      On-ramp for I-81, turn right on Deneve Road for about one mile.
      Shop is at the intersection of Deneve and Ferber Road.
      On the left. Watch for sign.
      Half way up Deneve Road is an Amish farm on the right with buggy parked by the barn.
      Go past that farm.

    I know there are probably too many Amish furniture makers in PA to list, but I will pass on my recommendation. We got an awesome sewing machine cabinet from:
    Samuel Stoltzfus
    Hill Top Furniture
    310 South Groffdale Road
    Gordonville, PA 17529
    (717) 768-8433
    He does FANTASTIC work. He was recommended to us by a sewing machine dealer in the area. While we were visiting an area quilt shop, we mentioned that we had ordered a sewing machine cabinet from Hill Top Furniture and the shop owner [an Amish woman] told us that both of her daughters had gotten sewing machine cabinets from that shop as wedding gifts!!!

      Amish furniture specialty items

      One thing I appreciate about Amish furniture makers is that you often find them specializing in one item or area. An Ohio acquaintance makes Time Out chairs for little ones, for instance. Sounds like Samuel S has a strong foothold in his sewing machine cabinet niche.

      another great furniture place in this area is Plain Pine in Intercourse, PA. We have gotten several pieces from here. They have finished and unfinished furniture and will do custom jobs, also. They do not have a website, but their address is 3471 Old Phila. Pike (corner of 340 & 772), Intercourse, PA 17534. 717-768-323

      Comment on Hilltop Furniture: When a slightly lower price means nothing. (January 17th, 2014 at 13:26)

      Hilltop Furniture: When a slightly lower price means nothing.

      Sam Stoltzfus is probably the best of the best.

      Not the cheapest, but the very best in quality, especially for a kitchen where cutting corners just never pays… at least in my experience.

      I have worked with quite a few Amish furniture makers… most of them are good in their own respect, but Sam at Hilltop Furniture was the only one that excelled in every area, each and every time.

      I have worked with him a number of times. I used to do the finishing on custom kitchens years ago, so I know what to look for in the small details, and it makes me much harder to please with getting the fit and finish just right.

      Sam at Hilltop is the only one that always excels. VERY highly recommended.

    Comment on DST, doh! (March 12th, 2012 at 14:32)

    DST, doh!

    Yikes, I think I just figured out why today’s email notification hasn’t gone out to subscribers yet about this post. It’s Daylight Savings Time. Duh. It seems DST messed up the scheduling and it never went out. And here I’ve been beating my head against the wall trying to figure it out :) Well, I hope that fixes it. In Poland DST is usually off by a couple weeks compared to the US, so it hasn’t happened yet and it wasn’t even on my radar.

      Lancaster Business Guide/Furniture

      Thanks Paula. I think your comment somehow landed on a random page, so I took the liberty of moving it onto this furniture thread. The Lancaster County Business Directory is a great guide. I just picked up the 2012 edition. My friend’s farm is on the cover :)

      Here is sth on last year’s edition: http://amishamerica.com/lancaster-county-business-directory/

      It is also online here: http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/davco/lancasterbusinessdirectory2011/#/0

      That last link actually let’s you “browse” it online, actually flipping through its virtual pages. It’s a pretty cool interface I hadn’t seen before.

      Amish Woodworkers' Guide

      That is a very good guide Marcus. It pretty much focuses strictly on Amish woodworkers, not so much non-Amish retailers selling Amish furniture (though they do include a handful of related non-Amish businesses). Last year I met the person who puts it together, an Amish furniture maker out of Indiana. This year I contributed a short piece on Amish woodworking for the latest edition. This is the second year they’ve published it.

    Nice job Eric. I can imagine how much work it was to compile this! You have included all the shops in my area of Michigan that I know about, and several I may have to go visit. Thanks!

      Thanks Kevin, I do appreciate that. Thanks also to all who’ve been sharing businesses and addresses. I’ve tried to give this a good base of businesses but there will always be changes and more to add, so it is helpful.

    Baby's prams

    Hello, I have just purchased a little dollies’ pram from the USA. Both my husband and I think it has an Amish look about it. It is about 1940’s and collapsible, made of a Rexine type substance. The hood/shade is the same shape as the Amish buggies. I would be interested in any comment. A.

    Comment on Need to find some chairs! Not just any chairs, but the perfect chairs. (December 12th, 2014 at 15:57)

    Need to find some chairs! Not just any chairs, but the perfect chairs.

    I found some chairs online that I fell in love with, and after an exhaustive search, found that they were made by Samuel Stoltzfus at Hill Top Furniture. However, now I find out they no longer make them although there are pictures of them all over the internet, saying they are still for sale. I am wondering if these chairs are so unique that nobody makes them anywhere except for him? I realize many of the Amish are not going to have web sites, so short of touring every Amish furniture maker in America in my search for these chairs, do you have any recommendation on how I could find out if someone else makes them?

    I have seen a lot of Amish Furniture stores around, but I had a good experience with dutchcrafters.com.
