This decor is very beautiful when finished with a clear lacquer that goes right over the bark. The glider moves on over a many sealed stainless ball bearings for a very smooth operation. Upholstered fabric seats and tanned cow hide and tanned cow hide with hair upholstered seats are also available. The middle ends are also breadboard ends with tongue and grave and pins joining the planks. The dining room table and individual chairs are all available as separate pieces with a few options. Amish-made hickory is made from solid hickory saplings that have been steamed and bent into beautiful unique designs with the bark still on that put this furniture in a class of its own.
All of our hickory log furniture is “bark-on” and finished with 3 coats of protective varnish. Amish have perfected a method of steaming, then bending the hickory poles to make various unique pieces of furniture.
Rustic quarter sawn
The construction is hickory for the frame and the top is oak for the slats, or it can also be hickory or cherry, burned finish or unburned. We can offer this in any hardwood from smooth deep cherry to rustic quarter sawn and rustic cherry.
Other hickory sticks are taken from the steamer, then bent and nailed directly onto the furniture being built. We can offer this in any hardwood from smooth deep cherry to rustic quarter sawn and rustic cherry.
After being steamed, which makes it bendable, some of the hickory is put on forms to be shaped.
