About the makers of this piece:
At home in Indiana, Amish craftsmen who created this art piece draw on skills passed down from their ancestors. These skills, combined with their understanding of hickory’s natural qualities allow them to bring out the hickory’s beautiful grain patterns to create heirloom-quality furniture. The saplings which are cut to build their furniture re-grow and are ready to harvest again in 3-5 years, making their craft sustainable as well.
As one of the hardest woods available, hickory is chosen for its strength and durability. In fact, pioneers chose it for heavily used items such as ladder rungs, wagon wheels, and tool handles. Many woodworkers prefer not to even work with hickory simply because its strength makes it so difficult to cut, carve, drill, turn, and machine.
