What Makes an Amish Dining Table, Amish?

The popularity of durable and beautiful handcrafted hardwood dining tables and furniture remains strong, even as many have bent more toward a” throw-away” culture in recent years. The problem is that a lot of “Amish” furniture out there isn’t Amish at all.

How can you tell the difference?

If you’re looking for an authentic Amish or Mennonite table from formal to rustic for your home that you won’t have to replace in only a few years, here are a few key characteristics to look for:

  1. Made from 100% locally-grown solid wood (including the drawers).
  2. Contains no particle board or laminate.
  3. Mortise & tenon joinery and dovetailed drawers
  4. It’s made in actual Amish or Mennonite wood shops.
  5. The finish is several layers of high-quality catalyzed varnish that withstands water and household chemicals, no water mark worries.

It’s rare to find dining tables with all five characteristics online or in mainstream furniture stores.

Buying a quality dining table you’ll enjoy and that will last for decades is a considerable commitment. You want to be sure you’re getting the exact handcrafted quality table you want, so you can enjoy years of hassle-free use. Our friendly and helpful staff is here to help you with answers to your questions as you make this purchase.

The edge of these tables still has the thick inner (cambium layer) bark connected. Your can even choose to have them finished with the raw outer bark, which is often more than an inch thick, for a more rustic appearance.
