Tuesday Tidbit

Tidbit:  Conrad Grebel is about details.  Our bedroom furniture was created with the idea of over-building for life-long enjoyment.  For example, our drawer bottoms are made with a minimum of 3/8” thick wood to help prevent long-term bowing underneath (a few of our collections feature as much as ½” thick – Classic Mission, Townsend, Tribeca & Verona).  Most companies use ¼” panels which are not as strong.  For our bed frames we use 5 bed slats that are flush-mounted around the frame.  This allows your box springs and mattress to fit more secure for longer life.  It’s the details that matter when creating furniture to truly last for generations.

Fun Amish Fact:  As the fall is turning cooler here in northern Indiana furnaces are heating up to keep a home or woodshop warm. Many Amish homes are heated with an old-fashioned wood-burning stove which will provide heat for an entire home. Most woodshops are heated the same way using scrap or offal wood to heat during the cooler months. It’s a sustainable and efficient way to generate heat without wasting good hardwood.
