Title: The Guide to Amish Farm Tables


1
The Guide to Amish Farm Tables
  • The history of the Pennsylvania Dutch, or
    Mennonite and Amish communities is intricately
    linked with the history of the United States,
    where this group of devout people sought refuge
    during the eighteenth century and where they
    thrive and live to this day. One of the
    principles of Amish life is that they are not a
    frivolous society, nor are they a throw-away
    society, and many of the pieces of furniture made
    by Amish craftsmen are built to last several
    generations.

The Guide to Amish Farm Tables
  • Madison Leg Extension Table
  • A traditional Amish Farm Table is more than just
    a dining table-- it is a table at which long
    conversations are held, meals are served, work of
    all sorts is done, prayer meetings are held, and
    where the community makes some of its most
    important decisions. When the weather is good,
    you can often find an Amish Farm Table outdoors,
    groaning under the weight of fresh produce and
    hosting everything from potlucks to weddings.
  • Newbury Leg Extension Table
  • Amish Farm Tables are not small tables for small
    groups, nor are they delicate, flimsy things. How
    do you know if the table you are considering
    buying is suited for Amish farm life?

The Guide to Amish Farm Tables
  • 1-- The Wood
  • An Amish Farm Table will be made with the best
    possible quality of wood, preferably good, solid
    hardwood. Hardwoods last hundreds of years if
    they are well taken care of, and longevity is a
    prized quality among the Amish when it comes to
    their farm tables.
  • 2-- Quality of manufacture
  • Each table needs to be manufactured as well as
    possible because these tables are expected to do
    decades worth of hard work. They are hand-made,
    with every single piece of wood, every nail,
    bracket and dowel being carefully and accurately
    inserted by the maker. When making Amish Farm
    Tables, there is no mass-production.

  • 3-- The Style
  • The Amish refer to themselves as Plain folk,
    because excessive decoration is considered
    frivolous and unnecessary. That extends to their
    furniture, too. If the farm table you're looking
    at is heavily decorated, it's not Amish!
    Sturdiness is more important that fashion, and
    hard work more prized than attractiveness.
  • 4-- The Manufacturer
  • It may sound obvious, but you can really only be
    sure that your table is genuine Amish Farm Table
    if it is made by an Amish craftsman Furniture.

  • West Lake Leg Extension Table
  • 5-- The Size
  • A small table that seats two to four people isn't
    a farm table. Of course, you can get Amish-made
    dining tables, work tables and many others that
    are smaller and suited for your space, but if
    it's a farm table, it needs to seat at least ten
    people, and preferably more.

Amish Farm Tables are not small tables for small
groups, nor are they delicate, flimsy things. How
do you know if the table you are considering
buying is suited for Amish farm life? Because
these tables are expected to do decades worth of
hard work, each table needs to be manufactured as
well as possible. There is no mass-production
when making Amish Farm Tables. If the
farm table you're looking at is heavily
decorated, it's not Amish!
