Furniture details

Carpenter and woodworkers in the Amana communal era kept pieces very plain and simple. Very well crafted, these pieces became heirlooms handed down from generation to generation. There are certain details that make them very unique and very Amana style whether it's handles on a chest of drawers or cutouts at the bottoms of shelves and benches, or crowns on tops of shranks. They were hand cut or carved for a certain area of a piece of furniture to give it that special Amana style detail to admire in any collection.
