How Amish Furniture is Made

Amish made furniture is popular for many reasons, such as the quality, solid wood design, and the humble craftspeople who meticulously work out all the details of these iconic, American made pieces. Not much is thought about how the furniture is actually made, in fact, in the modern society we live in these days runs completely parallel with Amish culture as we know it. We’re more concerned with getting what we want, when we want, than we are of where our stuff actually comes from and the behind the scenes of it all.

This is in stark contrast to Amish culture, where dedication, hard work, craftsmanship and humility take precedence over pride and instant gratification. In fact, a primary reason people often choose Amish furniture is to be mindful and acknowledge the skill and patience that goes in to the building process, and recognizing the impact these traits have on the overall quality of the product.

When browsing your local hardware store looking for something to protect and seal your furniture, you could be thinking you can use either a stain or a finish to achieve the look you’re after. What few people know is that even though the two terms are used interchangeably, they aren’t the same thing. The confusion started when a particular brand of both of wood stains and finishes mislabeled their products and ever since it’s been the bane of many a woodworker or furniture crafter’s existence. No one is really sure how they came about mislabeling such a popular and useful product, and to this day, it’s still a mystery. Anyhow, the two are different.
