The Amish Home Gallery works with a few furniture builders that make furniture out of reclaimed lumber. This lumber is salvaged from old barns and buildings, is dried and properly prepared for furniture use. Reclaimed lumber can have knots, gouges, and cracks and generally a mix of oaks. Knots are filled on table tops so they can be easily used every day. All reclaimed lumber is finished with the standard conversion varnish to ensure years of unique beauty.
