Q. Who makes your furniture?
Most of our furniture is made by our craftsmen/craftswomen in our workshop located right next to our showroom in Intercourse, PA. In addition to our own woodshop, we have several local Amish and Mennonite craftsmen who specialize in making certain furniture pieces for us in their own shops.
Q. Is it made right here in Lancaster County?
Yes, many pieces are made in our workshop next to our showroom, and some of our work is done by our craftsmen in their own shops in our area. We work on new items to be included in our line, as well as working with our craftsmen by preparing stock for turnings, preparing components, and assembling pieces for them to finish.
Q. Is the furniture made of solid wood?
Yes. That’s part of what our customers like so much. It seems that many people have different definitions for “solid wood.” We use only hardwoods such as oak, cherry, walnut and maple along with many specialty woods. We do not use veneers, plywood, or particle board. Our standard is, “If you can see it, then it is the designated wood species.” We do use solid wood (usually poplar) for secondary wood parts such as back, drawer sides and bottoms.
Q. Where do you get the wood? Q. How do you ship?
We live in a region where quality hardwoods are plentiful. We get our supply through local mills. The lumber is kiln-dried to proper percentages before being used for our furniture.
We will personally deliver or ship our furniture depending on the location. We ship via common carrier or UPS, depending on the piece(s) size and weight. For the most part we “double box” and use foam between to insure the furniture’s safe arrival.
