Amish Woodworking

In Amish culture, furniture making is a skill passed down from generation to generation, and many families are known for their distinct detail work. Made primarily by the Amish of Ohio and Indiana, the all-wood furniture is recognized for its quality and workmanship.

In the case of emergency, better leave them alone.

I think this article needs work. Some general statements are incorrect (some do use electricity, but are off grid). There are no sources and the links are broken.

I'm a woodworker myself, concentrating on pre-industrial woodworking tools and methods and have been learning about their methods.
