Our Amish desk category will be one of our fastest growing categories since it is our goal to offer one of the internet's largest selection of Amish made desks from a variety of the top Amish desk builders in the country. Our solid wood desks are made to order in a variety of popular domestic wood types including oak, cherry, maple, brown maple, white oak, hickory, and walnut. Every solid wood desk at Amish Furniture Factory, from our mission style desks to our rustic styles, is handcrafted using old world building techniques that have been handed down to each new generation within the Amish furniture crafting trade. One such old work building technique is the Mortise and Tenon Joint.

The Mortise and Tenon joint is a simple and strong joint used in high quality hand crafted furniture pieces, such our solid wood desks. There are many variation of the joint, but the basic joint structure consists of two wood pieces that are joined by one piece fitting into another. One piece has a hole cut into it that the other piece, called the tenon fits into. The joint may then be pinned, wedged and locked into place, glued, or a combination of the three.

Whats unique about Amish furniture builders is their tendency to blend old work craftsmanship and building techniques with new equipment and technology. During the construction of an Amish desk, many types of equipment will be used that is commercially available. The tools include both stationary machines such as band saws, mortisers, table saws, jointers, and wood lathes. An Amish desk will be made by typical industrial grade hand held tools that are commercially available. These tools may include electric drills, jig saws, or routers.

During the construction of an Amish desk, for example, these power tools will not be powered from the an electric power grid feeding an alternating current electric charge. Instead, an Amish desk builder will swap out electric motors and install a hydraulic pump or belt drive system powered by a diesel engine.
