Amish Wooden Bookcases: For those that treasure books an Amish wooden bookcase is likely to be a much coveted item of furniture. But even for those of us who are not the bookish type, these beautifully built pieces of furniture can be very useful indeed. This is particularly the case since they can be customized according to individual specifications. They can be modified to create the kind of display cabinet you always dreamed of. Or they can be constructed in a way that part of the unit is built to house books and part of it acts as a display cabinet! The solid wooden shelves also mean that heavy books or other weighty items are easily supported.
Building Your Own Kitchen Cabinets: If you have ever considered building your own kitchen cabinets and aborted the idea by convincing yourself that you have no woodworking tools, or I know nothing about wood staining and finishing, or little about cabinet making in general, then read on and believe me when I say it can be done with minimal tools.
Another way to guarantee that you get a good quality cabinet despite the cheap cost is avoiding some additional options that usually come along with kitchen cabinets. These are bells, glass doors, corner pieces, turntables, etc. Each of those features adds to the actual price of the cabinet, making it more expensive. So if you strip off those things, you can get a decent cabinet at a not-so-high price.
When you have your parts list ready you can buy the materials and hire a cabinet shop to cut and mill the parts for the boxes and what your left with is assembling the boxes. This is not uncommon practice in cabinetry now days as more cabinet manufactures are farming out there work so they can produce more. The cabinet shop will package the order for each box making it easier to identify the cabinet and understand the assembly.
Kitchens with a focus on the sink, stove and refrigerator have been the norm for many decades. Cabinets in the kitchen were used for storage, but decorative elements such as color and trim were also taken into account. Small kitchens in decades past may also have included a small breakfast nook for quick family meals. The room was typically closed off from other rooms mostly due to a lack of kitchen ventilation suitable for use with cooking appliances.
