Welcome To Amish Crafted Furniture:
Amish Crafted Furniture is located in the “Heart of Ohio’s Amish Community.” Owner Rick Hencye has worked with every order of the Amish communities, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, since the fall of 2000. He has developed relationships with the employers, employees and family members of Amish furniture shops, and he’s very familiar with all the various aspects of the hand-crafted furniture-building process.
It all starts with the loggers, who select the wood to be cut and taken to the saw mills and lumber yards. Then there’s the hard-working men who saw the wood and cut it to the specific sizes for our customers furniture. And finally, there are those who choose the wood to then hand craft the furniture into its custom piece.
Rick has also worked with the men who glue the table tops together, as well as the men who design and turn by hand the spindles for the chairs and table legs. He’s worked alongside the very men who design the furniture, many of whom start with a simple pencil drawing. Sometimes, a piece is designed directly from one of our customer’s drawings, images, and/or specifications.
In addition to working with the employees and employers of the furniture shops who put the furniture together, he’s also worked hand-in-hand with the finishers who stain the finished product to complete the exact piece that our customers choose as a family heirloom piece. This process showcases the grain of the wood, which is enhanced by the finish our customers choose.
For many years, Rick has enjoyed the ongoing relationships he’s forged with the Amish and their families. The building of these relationships has allowed him to play a significant role in the furniture-making process. It has also allowed him to give in to the Amish community. In developing these relationships and working with the Amish, Rick has learned how to relate to the Amish first hand, as he has been very careful to learn and respect their family values, hard work ethics, ways of doing business and community ties.
He has also made sure to respect and honor their religious beliefs and traditions. The Amish strive to hold on to their way of life, which is void of modern worldly conveniences, and to live and do business in the fast-paced world around them. They seek to take care of their families and uphold their traditions.
It is these relationships that have given Rick the dream to not only work in the Amish communities that he lives in, but to also be a part of their community, as he seeks to display to his customers the Amish craftsmanship and the quality of tradition they value.
Rick also strives to showcase a hand crafted, solid wood piece of highly detailed, genuine and authentic Amish quality heirloom furniture that sustains the Amish integrity and work ethic, without compromising their way of life. He’s worked very closely with the Amish, who own and run their own furniture stores, seeking to find what different types of furniture customers actually want.
Amish Crafted Furniture showcases a wide variety of fine, hardwood furniture. We specialize in oak, brown maple, cherry and quarter sawn white oak. We specialize in these specific woods based upon recommendations from our Amish crafters, along with what our customers have asked for. We also offer other fine woods such as elm, hickory, walnut, hard maple and more, based upon customer preference and special request.
We use all Ohio certified stains on our wood products, and we offer more stains than what our customers see on our website. We also custom build more furniture than what we actually showcase on our website, and we always tell our customers that if they do not see what they’re looking for, then we’ll be happy to work with them in designing and building the exact heirloom quality piece they’re looking for.
