Spiritcraft Design Furniture, a Brief History of Our Company and an Ongoing Dedication to Quality
In the Beginning and Beyond: Spiritcraft Furniture began as a stress relief hobby two decades ago in a one man shop with the goal being designing and crafting heirloom quality solid hardwood furniture that would endure generations. We have also been committed since the start to working with rescued hardwoods in our live edge tables and in sustainable and non-threatened kiln dried hardwoods in our furniture and slab & solid hardwood table tops. Through the years we have produced hundreds of handmade furniture pieces and the showpiece dining and conference tables and solid wood table top products we are known for today. Our current production table and table top operation follow in that same tradition of handcrafted quality in every solid wood item we produce. From our earliest pieces, through our full collections of furniture to our efficient heirloom table and solid wood table top offerings of today, quality has been our first priority.
Our Company Today: Today our company has become a leading manufacturer of live edge tables and solid hardwood table tops with a nationwide customer base. We have redefined ourselves as a company to be a production lead time supplier that still offers handcrafted quality in every item we produce. Our team consists of dedicated employees who share our ideals and have grown within our company as they learn the craft of fine furniture-making. Spiritcraft Furniture is now a brand name of our parent company, Great Spirit Hardwoods LLC, which is another name that pays homage to Native American ancestry. We continue to value sustainability in our hardwoods and continue to embrace the idea that our tables and table tops must be of the highest quality available anywhere and at a fair, wholesale level price point.

Our handcrafted quality production wood shop, our joinery and the hardwoods that become our custom made tables and solid wood table tops.
Our Production Wood Shop: Our tables, tops and hardwood legs are handcrafted one at a time at our table manufacturing facility located at 7 Jackson Street in East Dundee, Illinois. Our well-equipped woodshop features many large industrial quality machines, some of which have been purchased from well-known furniture makers who have moved their manufacturing operations overseas. We have table saws, planers, jointers and sanders that were used in the operations of Pennsylvania House, Ethan Allen and Henredon as examples. These heavy, professional and industrial machines are again making quality American made furniture as they did in the past. Our tables, table tops, legs and furniture is shown in the adjacent Furniture and Decor Showroom within The Living Edge Showroom.
Perfect Glue Joints and the Joinery that Makes for Heirloom Quality: Our legendary perfect glue joints are the result of both woodworking experience and a true dedication to quality and long term endurance. Each and every glue joint is crafted to be square, true and parallel to a boards flat surface using our precision industrial jointer. All glue joints are dry fit before glue-up and made again if not perfect. We do not use biscuits, dowels or other aids as nothing replaces or strengthens a properly crafted glue joint and we feel that their use is a telltale sign that a woodwork does not trust their glue joint to stand the test of time. Our reputation lies upon the integrity of our glue joints and we pride ourselves on their quality. Our finely crafted splined miter joints in our hardwood legs are also widely admired in their perfection and their heirloom quality. We set ourselves apart in the precision of our joinery and glue joints found in our table tops and legs and are confident that they are unrivaled in terms of their heirloom quality.
Our Kiln Dried Hardwoods, Every Board is Hand Selected: We personally hand select each and every piece of wood for the tables and tops that we build. Our board selection process helps to assure that the grain match is as eye appealing as possible and that boards and slabs are arraigned in way that will provide long term stability. We use wide grain boards for table tops which sets our furniture and tops apart from even the finest US furniture manufacturers. Every board, plank or slab in our shop is kiln dried to 6-8% moisture content which is an absolute necessity in making quality furniture, tops and tables.
For Live Edge Tables, We Use Only Local Sustainable Hardwoods: Our Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Ash furniture is crafted from hand selected slabs that come from very large and old trees that have suffered storm damage, have "passed on" by other means or were headed for the chipper. The colors, grain, texture and quality of the urban and rural sustainable hardwoods is simply amazing and is not found in any mass produced furniture. We purchase trees and logs from these downed or felled trees and have them sawn to our specifications before air and kiln drying them.
Our Production Lead Times, Service Area and National Blanket Wrapped Delivery Service.
Lead Times, Delivery and Shipping of our Furniture: Although each table and top is handcrafted one at a time, we have been able to keep our turnaround times very competitive. Delivery times are dependent on many factors such as the quantity of pieces ordered, the complexity of the legs and current shop and kiln schedules (for live edge tables and tops). Lead times usually vary between 4-6 weeks with 5 weeks being average on most full table orders. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our current workflow and lead times. Note: Furniture quality and longevity is directly related to the time spent in the craftsmanship and in the finishing. We do not usually consider rush jobs as we have a organizational commitment that demands that only furniture of superb quality is allowed to leave our shop.
