      There is a Kauffman custom wood interiors in Burbon which is between Arthur and Arcola. Jacob Kauffman started this, who is still Amish. His son who is now running never joined the Amish church, and his dad now works for him. He does have a website you can look at. Also there is Simply Amish close to Arthur that have Amish make furniture, and market it for them.

    Early/ First Growth Timber for sale (July 2nd, 2013 at 16:50)

    Early/ First Growth Timber for sale

    I have a lot, I mean tons, of old timbers and wood. My family was in the heavy moving and rigging business since 1873. We use this wood for housemoving and cribbing. It’s all been stored inside. Most of it is early/first growth wood. Very clear and usually heartwood. Some are 20′ + long. It’s pine and fir, nice stuff. Some of it my great grandfather acquired.
    Would you be interested in any of it? It’s in Kankakee, Il, about 60 mi south of Chicago.
    I have CHF and have to get out of the business and am selling everything.
    I always hoped I would be able to do some woodworking with these great timbers, but my present health precludes that.
    Thank you
    Heres a rough count-
    There are more timbers, but I have to move some to get to them. Approx. 36 12’-14’ 8×8
    8 12’-14’ 8×10

    1 13’ 10×12

    Want table leaves made for table made in Arthur... (November 2nd, 2013 at 05:10)

    Want table leaves made for table made in Arthur...

    Hi, In 1999, I purchased a custom dining room table & chairs from “The Amish Furniture Outlet” in Peoria, ILL. I believe they have moved or perhaps went out of business. The table was made in Arthur, IL but I don’t know by “who”. I am wanting to have 2 more table leaves made but not quite sure how to go about doing so.

    I now live in Charlotte, NC but was planning on going home (ILL) for Christmas and had high hopes of ordering the pieces now and being able to pick them up the last week of December (2013).

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Cyndi, best advice is just to contact one of the businesses above listed under Arthur or any other convenient-for-you location in IL. Arthur is the largest Amish community in IL.

    I don’t know what wait times are like for what you want, the only way to find out is to get in touch with some of the businesses listed here directly and see what they can do. I hope it works out for you.
