KY Amish woodworks
Kentucky’s 30-plus Amish communities are home to numerous Amish woodworkers and furniture workshops. Amish furniture shops are typically found at the home, often in a small nondescript building located right on the main property. Amish appreciate the home setting for work. Being able to craft furniture with family nearby or, often, working right along in the shops, is something Amish highly value. Working at home–as they have long done on the farm–means greater control over the work environment and an ability to limit negative worldly influences.
Amish furniture is held in high regard by its buyers. A few things account for this: for one, the level of quality of Amish furniture is high. Kentucky Amish furniture makers, like their counterparts in other states, take satisfaction in work well executed. Producing and selling a quality product is a high goal of every Amish woodworker. A Christian belief in doing well for others underpins good business practice in Amish society.
Amish furniture is generally regarded to be high quality for another reason–the materials used. Hardwoods are typical in Amish woodworking shops in Kentucky and elsewhere. Quality solid woods used range from oak to cherry, maple to hickory to quartersawn oak and more. Solid construction with careful attention to detail–including dovetail joinery and painstakingly applied furniture finish–all contribute to helping Amish furniture run ahead of the pack.
Amish furniture variety
Potential Amish furniture buyers, with the idea that Amish woodworkers only create the simplest styles, will be surprised. While it’s true that Amish craftsmen produce many of the classic furniture styles, including Queen Anne, Mission, Shaker, and others, Amish furniture artisans have displayed an admirable range, being able to produce a variety of contemporary styles as well as to innovate new designs. Amish furniture makers, when interviewed, have noted that the ability to adapt to the market and produce attractive new products, is one key to success in the competitive furniture industry.
A visit to an Amish furniture showroom in Kentucky, where the many different lines of Amish craftsmanship can be viewed, can be eye-opening. In addition to this furniture diversity, Amish craftsmen also produce custom-made pieces to fit the needs of the individual customer.
