5 Reasons High Quality Wood Furniture Lasts You Forever
Investing in high-quality wood furniture might feel out of reach until you realize that it is not just an investment in value but in time & in family memories. Plus, with the way we do it at George’s Furniture, you have control & input on every step of the process.
Yes, we always start with an initial consult when you can share your biggest dreams with us & we craft a design that brings your desire to life. Then, you can actually visit our woodshop in Lancaster PA while our expert craftsmen assemble, plane & stain the wood. Within weeks, after construction begins, you have your brand new, expertly crafted solid wood kitchen table or bedroom suite to enjoy in your own home for years. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Starting with our choice of lumber, today you will learn 5 reasons high quality wood furniture can last your family forever.
#1. Start with premium wood.
Choosing a premium hardwood gives you strong material when designing your custom handcrafted piece. We have worked with Bingaman Lumber for years. We love working with them to get our customers premium Pennsylvania hardwoods like black walnut, cherry, & red oak. Maple hardwood is also a popular choice.
#2. Use it in any room.
You might find this hard to believe but every room in your home could use a custom handcrafted piece of solid wood furniture. Of course, there are the obvious choices like a solid wood kitchen table or a bedroom set of a dresser, nightstand & chest of drawers. But George actually started our company when he built the first non-tipping rocking chair. Yes, he tipped over in a rocking chair when he was young. That inspired him to build a rocking chair with enough support & balance that it would not tip over.
Even for professional use, we have constructed office furniture, executive desks & conference tables (Did you read about the time we constructed a table for the Pentagon?). We also assemble bed frames & headboards, even such creative & unexpected pieces as dog kennels, instrument cases, & marble tracks. Whatever your creative vision is, we can bring it to life (because there is a good chance we already have)!
#3. Protect it from the elements (& fingerprints).
We actually take great care to seal & finish each of our solid wood pieces with a durable, high-quality finish. This brings out the beautiful color & grain of the wood & makes it so much easier for you to care for it. The finish is actually heat and water-resistant. If you must polish your furniture, for example to remove fingerprints, we recommend a polish like Old English Lemon Oil. Ultimately, investing in our high-quality process protects your furniture from the wear & tear which often strains lesser quality furniture.
#4. Make memories with your family.
Cyrus & Florence Keefer came to us looking for a solid wood kitchen table that could fit their family for dinners, game nights & family meetings. One of the most beautiful parts of their story is how Lori, their daughter, brought the kitchen table into her home with all the cherished memories of her childhood. Ultimately, Lori & her husband passed on the table to her daughter Karly, who gave the table a cherished place in her townhome.
And this is only one story! We have so many more from so many beloved customers & their families! Read more at George’s Furniture Reviews
#5. Endure heavy-duty wear & tear for years.
Truth be told, our customers seem to love this feature the most… that their pieces still hold up over years of wear & tear. Once customers find George’s furniture, they never want to let us go. The quality and craftsmanship outshine all other furniture available.
In fact, as one of our repeat customers, Ches, who first came to us over 20 years ago, has given us raving reviews every time.
“I have done A LOT of business with George’s Woodcrafts in the past, and always used you for any projects that I have. I would match your workmanship 1:1 against anyone.
I truly believe that you are the ELITE of all wood craftsmen and women in the USA.
I have always had an eye for detail, as I must in my business and was overwhelmed with beauty when I first saw George’s workmanship and perfectionistic approaches to everything.
Your craftsmanship has caught my eye over 20 years ago when placing my 1st order, and still is just as beautiful to me now as it was then. I have had a few custom jobs, along with fully furnishing 2 houses with all your items.
George delivered a truckload of furniture to me in Media PA himself. At that time, he said that it was the largest delivery that he has ever made. It was my 1st house in Media, PA (in Broomall township). I bought EVERYTHING from Georges Woodcrafts.
We took a ride to visit the following weekend after knowing that we would NEVER see anything to match the quality we just saw at George’s. We placed orders for EVERY single piece of furniture needed.
If it was made from wood, you guys made it for us.
We have a custom TV stand he built from a picture I found in a magazine. It’s a 3 piece unit. It was extremely heavy. George and I unloaded EVERYTHING together. I had a few helpers, as some of the pieces were extremely large.”
Whether it is a minor job or filling a home, George’s designers and craftsmen are ready to listen and build furniture you will cherish for a lifetime. Visit today in Marietta, PA or explore Georgesfurniturepa.com and begin your life living with quality handcrafted furniture, made your way.
