Once Again - Schlabach's

On Monday, Judy and I decided to travel to Apple Creek, Ohio, located in the heart of the Ohio Amish community.  We blogged last April 24th that Schlabach's is our favorite furniture showroom.  In April we purchased an oak table for Judy.  Our goal this day was to see if we could find a chest of drawers for the back bedroom.

Handcrafted furniture at its finest is located in the huge showroom.  Oak, maple, and other varieties of wood may be found here.  I am presenting photos of a few examples of their fine craftsmanship for our friend, Dan.  Dan likes oak, but if remember correctly he loves cherry.

This checker/chess table below is so Dan.

Judy and I enjoy the quarter sawed oak pieces.

Judy quickly located 5 or 6 chest of drawers that needed to be considered.  The piece below is known as a chest on chest.  Judy examined this piece closely.

The simple mission style dresser below was certainly high on our possible selection list.

Judy liked the black roping on the front.

Sorry we could not get these kitchen cabinets in the van!

After a short discussion, we made our selection.  Daniel and Wayne Schlabach are wonderful folks that are willing to answer any question.  John wrapped the piece we selected.  Wayne helped load the piece into the van.

So which chest of drawers did we purchase?   

The mission style, quarter sawed oak chest on chest went home with us.

Here it is in our back bedroom. 

We would certainly recommend Schlabach's if you are looking for quality handcrafted furniture.
