“I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree,” – Joyce Kilmer
When we stop to think about it, trees play an important role in our lives. Children play tag around them and climb up in them, we sit on porch swings beneath their shade, they shelter us from the heat and weather, they give off oxygen for us to breathe, and they provide the material to enhance our lives by providing wood for the creation of furniture pieces we use each day. Wood is both functional and beautiful and is a natural, renewable resource. It’s a part of the outside that we bring inside, and we are the better for it.
At the Country Craftsmen, we understand that beautiful hardwoods have intrinsic characteristics that infuse our homes and living spaces with warmth and beauty. Being in the same room with furniture that has been crafted from solid hardwood has a satisfying, pleasing effect on our minds. It reminds us of our connection to the outdoors and gives us a link to nature. Solid wood represents stability, strength, and durability.
We take pride in building our fine furniture and cabinets in the time-honored tradition of true artistry and solid workmanship. We create our furniture and cabinetry by hand using only the finest hardwood lumber grown and harvested in the U.S. and kiln dried to achieve a stable product. The “stars” of our beautiful furniture are these popular hardwoods: Alder, Ash, Cherry, Hickory, Maple, Oak – both Red and White, and Walnut.
The Country Craftsmen – the Trusted Name in Solid Wood Furniture and Cabinetry!
Since February 1987, we have been hand crafting furniture and cabinetry with superior materials and a keen attention to detail. We use no particleboard in our furniture. Crafted with time tested methods, our products are built to last a lifetime and be passed down to the next generation. Each piece we create is built by hand expressly for you. We understand that pride of ownership is important to our customers, so we strive to give them a product they will love and appreciate for years to come.
All operations to create a beautiful piece of furniture for you are done within the walls of our shop. We do not outsource our work to others. This gives us the ability to match grain patterns throughout the piece we are building and allows us quality control of all phases of construction with our products. We use only hardwoods that are properly kiln dried, as proper drying is critical to producing furniture that resists warping and cracking. At the Country Craftsmen, we combine American harvested hardwoods with the finest hardware to produce a furniture piece which is certain to become a family heirloom. Let us build something for you!
The Value of Buying Solid Wood Furniture
You might ask, “Why does custom hardwood furniture cost more?” The answer is simple: Quality is worth more and it always will be! Anyone who purchases any products today has usually discovered that we don’t get as much for our money as we once did. It is just a fact: be it smaller portions, goods made more cheaply or even items manufactured to last only a short time so the consumer will have to buy again. It is frustrating and expensive!
When you purchase hardwood furniture from our company, we give you more for your money. We give you a product that, by its nature is more enduring than most furniture you will find on the market today simply because of what it is made of. Cheap particle board that stretches and sags over time is no match for the mighty Oak or Maple trees! While it is true, products like particleboard or pressboard are less expensive, they will not hold up like furniture made from hardwood will. And often they come with the added problem of formaldehyde and harmful additives that are really not safe or healthy – for children or anyone else.
Our Specially 4 Kids products are a great investment as they can grow along with your child, eliminating the need to continually purchase new items. They are versatile and can be used over long periods of time, which makes our furniture imminently practical for the consumer. Let us show you the true value of purchasing our furniture created from solid hardwood.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will spend some time getting to know us better and explore some of the many different quality items that we produce. If you desire a piece of furniture or cabinetry that is well made and enduring – contact us. When you consider the quality you get, solid hardwood, custom furniture is an investment that makes good sense.
