  • For Product: Summerfield Large Cedar (QuickShip)   3 weeks 2 days ago

    I ordered two of these for special people in my life.  They are for Christmas, but to ensure they're OK for the big day, I got them out of the carefully packed boxes to check them out for damage.  All I can say is: Wow!  They are beautiful! These are fantastic, so happy I got these!

  • For Product: Oak Steamer Trunk   1 month 6 days ago

    I ordered this trunk to finish off my den after basically a total remodelling of the house.  Shortly after placing the order I reeived an e-mail stating it was scheduled to be finished and ship on 10/24/18 and it was!  Once I got the trunk unboxed it was better than I expected or could have imagined.  The coffee finish and antique brass hardware were perfect for room.  Close to the flooring finish but just dark enough to have the perfect contrast.  The construction is beautiful and it is evident the craftsmen take extraordinary pride in their work.  This is a beautiful, quality piece of artistic craftsmanship that I am pleased to have in my home.  I also ordered the distressing and it was done in a way that added just the right amount of "character" to the piece but did not make it look as if it had been thrown about carelessly or used as a workbench...just the right amount , not too much, not too little.  Again, this is a very nice piece of craftsmanship that exceeded my expectations.  Not only are they excellent at crafting theses trunks but the packaging was excellent as well.  Heavy Cardboard box with the trunk wrapped in a protective foam-like "paper" and placed in a styrofoam "crate" giving it a nice snug fit in the box and a piece of styrofoam inside the trunk to prevent the sliding cedar box from sliding and damaging the inside during shipping.  Excellent work and communication all around.

    Just received my beautiful cedar chest and couldn't be happier!  Very impressed with the fine workmanship and the wonderful cedar smell.  This is the perfect chest to store my collection of quilts.  Would definately purchase from you again and highly recommend you to my family and friends.

  • For Product: Summerfield Large Cedar (QuickShip)   1 month 2 weeks ago

    I received my large cedar chest today after very prompt shipping. I ordered the cedar chest for my wife for her birthday as a surprise. It came UPS freight and it was boxed up extremely well and very secure. We opened it up and the chest is a thing of beauty. You can just see the love and Craftsmanship put into this chest. It's always tough to order a product like this online just by looking at the online picture but this was everything and more. You can tell the cedar chest is handmade. My wife loves it and if you are thinking about buying a chest, buy from amishhandcrafted.

    Thank you very much Josh. I will be telling and showing everybody we know!!

    My chest arrived yesterday in perfect condition. It is exactly what I ordered and hoped for. It is a stunning piece of quality furniture that will be passed down to my family for generations to come. The cedar has a lovely aroma. I have put it in my bedroom to store my hand knit sweaters. I am so glad I went with the best. Many thanks.

  • For Product: Oak Plymouth Trunk   2 months 1 week ago

    We purchased the Oak Plymouth Trunk and couldn't be more pleased.  We'd been looking for a trunk to use as a coffee table for the family room in our mountain home. We are so happy that we found Josh's site.  This trunk is exactly what we wanted to complete the look of the room.  We were concerned about our decision to add the Old World Distressing finish.  It turned out to be the correct choice and gives the trunk a wonderful antique look.  Everyone who has seen this piece has commented on the quality workmanship and gorgeous finish.

    Regarding their Customer Service, I can only say that Josh must be a saint to deal with a customer like me.  I'm a big time perfectionist and asked multiple questions.  Josh took the time to answer every one of my concerns in a timely manner and with complete professionalism.  We received the chest quickly and in perfect condition due to their careful packaging.  Eveline R.

    I ordered the Summerfield Large Cedar chest through the quick ship program.  My chest arrived in under a week, which was fantastic.  The chest is absolutely beautiful, I could not be happier!! Thanks so much.

  • For Product: Cambridge Medium Seat Rail (Cherry)   3 months 19 hours ago

    This chest is gorgeous, flawless and exceeded my expectations.  The reviews on your site are clearly well deserved.  My wife adores it and it will represent a collection of happy anniversary emotions as she will look upon it not as a piece of furniture but as the beautiful keeper of the things she holds dear.  I am grateful for your efforts to get it to us before our departure.  Please pass on my respectful compliments and admiration to your craftsmen.  I am thoroughly impressed at their skill and the quality of their work.  Sincerely, James 

  • For Product: Maple Steamer Trunk (QuickShip)   3 months 1 week ago

    Extraordinary service! Ordered on 8/15/19 and received a quick ship Maple steamer trunk on 8/20/18. We needed speedy service and we received it. The quality of the chest is also unique craftmanship. Thank you so much!

  • For Product: Maple Steamer Trunk (QuickShip)   3 months 2 weeks ago

    I placed a phone order for a "quick ship" medium cedar chest with the removable tray. Normally, the tray isn't available on a quick ship item, but Joshua told me that he would see what he could do. I placed my order and was told that my cedar chest would arrive in several days time. It arrived as promised, and the bonus was the removable tray was included. I opened the package and WOW, beautiful, awesome, I was totally blown away. Such quality, such perfect craftsmanship. My husband works with wood and has built several pieces of furniture for me and he was very impressed.
    If you are undecided as to whether or not to buy, do not hesitate. Beautifully made cedar chest, fast receipt, packaged well, and Joshua is super nice. A totally awesome experience!

    This is a very well made chest.  You shouldn't be disappointed with it.  If I had to buy another chest I will not need to go and research other web pages.  You get what you paid for!  In this case excellence.

  • For Product: Yorktown Large Reproduction Hope Chest (Cherry)   6 months 2 weeks ago

    Received our new Cherry Yorktown Hope Chest last week. The chest was packed with great care and protected the chest very well. As we expected, the fit and finish of the chest was exceptional. We were a little hesitant to order sight unseen, but can now say we are extremely happy with our purchase in all respects.

  • For Product: Harmony Jumbo Waterfall (Oak)   6 months 3 weeks ago

    I ordered the jumbo oak waterfall trunk.  Josh was great to work with on the order, especially since I wanted the dovetails and quartersawn oak rather than regular oak.  They were great on communication, letting me know the status of my order, and when it shipped by Fedex ground.  

    It arrived packed well, encased in padded cardboard on a small shipping pallet.  Even the jumbo size was still able to fit through doorways to get it inside where I unpacked it.

    Definitely a great item, and I look forward to using it for many years to come!

  • For Product: Harmony Jumbo Waterfall (Oak)   6 months 3 weeks ago

    I finally decided to purchase a cedar-lined chest to store my wool clothes during the summer months.  It arrived on the date estimated in perfect condition.  The wood and quality of the workmanship is absolutely exquisite.  The grain matches incredible well with a dresser in my bedroom.  The stain I had selected was accurately represented on the website.  I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase.  The reviews I had read online were spot-on. The quality and value can't be beat!

  • For Product: Harmony Jumbo Waterfall (Cherry)   6 months 4 weeks ago

    My wife recieved this today at the house.  While the Jumbo size is certainly larger than I had envisioned, the craftsmanship is simply spectacular.  The dovetails in the corners fit is perfection, the Cedar lining tight as a dish; but, above all, the engraving of the roses on the front of the chest are absolutely stunning to behold.  Best present I've ever been able to get for my wife.

  • For Product: Small Basic Cedar Chest   6 months 4 weeks ago

    For a high school graduation present, I purchased the small basic cedar chest for my granddaughter. I had it engraved. She loves it ! This is the second one I have purchased. My first granddaughter loved hers so much I had to get one for grandchild #2. This chest will last for many years because it is so well built. I hope they look at it after I am gone and smile!

  • For Product: Cambridge Large Seat Rail (Cherry)   7 months 1 day ago

    Joshua and company's heart and soul went into the building and finishing of this chest. It exceeded our expectations, which were already set quite high. It was delivered on schedule, in flawless condition. The chest front inscription took our breath away, the cedar lining is so fragrant and well made, the seat cushion is extremely high quality and finally,the cherry finish is beyond beautiful. This heirloom will remain in our family for many years to come.

  • For Product: Maple Steamer Trunk   7 months 5 days ago

    I purchased the Steamer Trunk as a hope chest for my daughter's wedding shower. We all loved it! The quality and craftsmanship are outstanding. It was so securely packaged it arrived ahead of schedule in perfect condition. It's so hard to find such great quality in this day and age. I am ordering a second one for my son! Thanks so much Josh for the impeccable service and great product.

  • For Product: Large Basic Cedar Chest   7 months 3 weeks ago

    I ordered the Large Basic Cedar Chest with a chest lock and the cedar slide tray.  I recieved emails letting me know the progress and shipping information.  The chest arrived via Fed Ex Freight from Pennsylvania to Colorado in perfect condition (very well packaged for shipping).  The workmanship of the chest is top quality.  This is a very beautiful chest and the cedar aroma is amazing. Thank you Josh for the beautiful chest that will be a family heirloom.

  • For Product: Maple Steamer Trunk   7 months 3 weeks ago

    The chest arrived completely undamaged and the craftsmanship is unlike anything I have ever purchased. The finish and design is truly remarkable. I bought this for my wife who wanted a chest like this since she was a little girl. I believe I made the perfect choice and she loves the chest. American craftsmanship and quality.

  • For Product: Large Basic Cedar Chest   8 months 1 week ago

  • For Product: Medium Basic Cedar (QuickShip)   8 months 2 weeks ago

    First, I have to say I’ve not received such thorough and prompt service from other online specialized merchandise establishments with whom I’ve purchased goods like this. Great email notifications concerning when my cedar chest entered production and afterwards concerning shipping. Very quick delivery which was a surprise for such a relatively large item. The chest arrived in great shape. Packed with side and corner heavy styrofoam padding which was tightly secured inside a heavy cardboard box. Hard to imagine how such an item might be damaged during shipping. The chest itself is extremely well constructed. Very solid throughout. Beautiful and aromatic cedar wood polished and sealed nicely. It exceeded my expectations in every way. In sum, It's beautiful and my wife is a happy lady now, being able to safely store her hand-made quilts inside such a beautiful piece of furniture. Thanks so much for all you did to keep in touch. I shall definitely recommend your site to friends. Five Stars in every way! ~ John Morgan, Ridgeway, VA

    Absolutely stunning!

    The corners all match up perfectly.  The stain job is perfect.  The lid and hardware all mounted with precision.  Amazing craftsmanship.  Wife was 100% pleased.

  • For Product: Medium Basic Cedar Chest   8 months 3 weeks ago

    This is a handsome cedar chest with a strong cedar odor (Good! our 25-year-old chest was broken and odorless).  It came quickly and was well-cushioned.  I found the website and the proprietor easy to deal with. I appreciated the all-inclusive price.

  • For Product: Oak Steamer Trunk   9 months 1 day ago

    I ordered the legacy black steamer trunk and after reading such positive reviews I had some pretty high expectations right from the start. This trunk is absolutely stunning and worth every penny spent. The craftsmanship is simply amazing and I couldn’t be a more satisfied customer. Thank you josh for this gorgeous trunk. :)

  • For Product: Medium Basic Cedar (QuickShip)   10 months 4 weeks ago

    I have been so very pleased with the entire process of ordering the Basic Cedar Chest to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Her sister and brother and I were wanting something to make it a special birthday and after researching for several days, I was delighted to find the Amish Hand Crafted Furniture site! The quality of the chest and the delivery on-time and the packaging that protected it so very well are impressive! A personal email to me was a wonderful touch! I will certainly recommend your site for anyone looking for quality furniture. And my daughter was delighted and surprised with the chest! Thank you!

  • For Product: Large Basic Cedar Chest   11 months 4 days ago

    Our cedar chest arrived totally undamaged from Pennsylvania to Boston. The chest is beautifully finished with dovetail joints and is a real collector's item. It is a tribute to the people who made it and well worth the money; yes, we would recommend it to friends.

  • For Product: Charleston Large (Cherry)   12 months 2 days ago

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY BEAUTIFUL CHARLESTON LARGE CHEST!!!!!!! It arrived sooner than expected and is more beautiful than I had imagined. The craftsmanship is amazing. Josh Stoltzfus was excellent to work with. He helped me adjust the height and sent me samples of the stains so I could select the one that went with my other cherry pieces. 

  • For Product: Tall Plymouth Trunk (Maple)   1 year 4 days ago

    My chest was delivered the end of November as promised (tall Plymouth trunk).  I don't have words to describe how completely happy I am with it.  It is truly a piece to be proud of. I know it will stand the test of time and be handed down from generation to generation.  A real family heirloom. ~ Tina

  • For Product: Medium Basic Cedar Chest   1 year 3 weeks ago

    Our cedar chest arrived in perfect condition, thanks to the wonderful packing method. The aroma is wonderful, that woodsy, cedar smell inside that reminds you of the forest. We opted for the dovetail joints, which look amazing! And, we ordered the tray that fits inside and is quite large, so many smaller items can be placed in there on top of the clothes, etc. Overall, this cedar chest is a beautiful piece of furniture at a great price!

  • For Product: Medium Basic Cedar Chest   1 year 2 months ago

    We love our cedar chest. It arrived less than a month from when we ordered it and in pristine condition. You folks know how to pack! It is gorgeous and we thought the price reasonable. Thanks so much for your workmanship. We got the dovetail joints, and they are  beautiful.

  • For Product: Harmony Jumbo Waterfall (Cherry)   1 year 4 months ago

    We ordered the steamer chest for my daughter's college graduation.  We weren't sure it would make it in time but they made sure it happened.  It is beautiful!  Very well made. She was thrilled with it!  Definitely will order again for the next graduation!

  • For Product: Franklin Large (Cedar)   1 year 6 months ago

    I ordered the Large Franklin Cedar Chest for my daughter's 18th birthday and graduation and am so pleased!  The piece is absolutely beautiful!  My husband is a woodworker, carpenter, and stickler for quality and he loves it as well.  We are so excited to give it to her and will be back when my next daughter turns 18 to carry on the tradition.

    Josh was great to work with.  He always responded promptly and kept us updated.  The chest arrived in plenty of time, well packed and in perfect condition.

    Thanks Josh!

    This is absolutely one of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I've ever seen!  I seriously doubt that I would have been able to find anything of such high quality in a furniture store.  Wow!  Josh is obviously a very gifted artisan who goes to great lengths to craft nothing but the finest, high-quality furniture.  This trunk will become an heirloom that will last and last.  Thank you, Josh!
