Welcome to Eric's Solid Oak Furniture. I have been in business for over 23 years now. For the first 10 years I was located in Salisbury, MA., then 10 years in downtown Middleton, Ma. and now I have been in Plaistow, NH for the last 3 years. All our furniture comes directly from Genuine Amish families in Lancaster County, PA. Handcrafted the old fashioned way.
I specialize in getting you, the customer, exactly what you need and want in a piece of furniture. You choose the wood, stain, hardware, size and most importantly style you are looking for. The Amish then build you a custom item but without the high custom price tag.
100% made in the USA, quality furniture at the lowest prices possible. Never any sales gimmicks, so you can shop around and know you are getting the best possible furniture.
How long does it take to be built?
Since all of my furniture is built to order, unless I have it on the floor, it usually takes 5-6 months to be built and 2-3 weeks for me to go down to Lancaster County and pick it up. A safe bet is 6 months generally. This varies from family to family. There are smaller families who try to have some of their best sellers ready to go in 2-3 months and others that are running closer to 9 months.
Placing an order?
To place an order I will work with you side by side to hand select all the options to ensure you get exactly what you want. I then take a 30% deposit and when the furniture comes in you pay the balance then.
What are your delivery options?
I do offer delivery. I charge a small fee to cover time and gas, depending on distance from my store. I also offer one person delivery if someone helps me on the other end. Most of the time the customer just doesn't have a vehicle large enough to transport but can save money by helping on the other end.
Is the furniture solid throughout?
All of my furniture is solid wood. No particle board or MDF to be found anywhere. That includes sides, drawer boxes or even the runners and skirts on tables. All drawers have dovetails and use Euro-glides. Some families also offer soft-closing drawers.
Do you offer refunds?
Since all of my furniture is custom made, I don't accept returns if something doesn't look quite right in your home. It is why I spend so much time up front getting you the perfect item for your spot. If an order is cancelled in the first week, I will give a full refund of your deposit though. If something comes in damaged or the wrong item the Amish will replace for you. This has happened once in the last 22 years with the Amish though.
Can I match something I have at home?
Many of my Amish families will do custom matching if need be. Typically they use Ohio Certified Stains universally. This means that you can order items from several different companies but since they all use a standard stain they will match. Of course as usual with a natural substance like wood there will be variances in the colors and wood. Just like a good hard wood floor may have.
