Why Consider Spiritcraft Design Furniture?

We design and handcraft each piece of fine furniture at our well outfitted wood shop and cabinetmaking facility. Each piece of furniture that we make is personally handcrafted to the highest standards and made to last for generations. Because we are true craftspersons, rather than a large furniture manufacturer, we can control the quality, offer custom design and put that much more thought and effort into each piece. Our attention to design, detail and craftsmanship allows us to offer furniture that will endure generations.

Real Value and Our Pricing: While heirloom quality furniture may seem to be a bit more expensive initially, one really only has to look at what is commonly available to discover that value is determined by more than the initial purchase price. We strive to keep our prices as low as possible while maintaining our high quality and craftsmanship standards in the furniture we craft. Our finely crafted hardwood furniture represents "real value" in the marketplace when considering its longevity and quality. Though we work with other interior designers and furniture stores on custom made furniture, we sell our lines directly to the consumer, so they do not have to pay the middleman’s markup.

Solid Hardwood Furniture Design and Construction: We use only the finest solid hardwood in all of the fine furniture that we make. Solid Hardwood furniture will stand the test of time, move with the seasons and grow even more beautiful with age. Hardwood furniture resists damage and can be repaired very easily if scratches and dents do occur. The paper thin veneers on these products are easily chipped, can never be sanded and the substrate itself has a very limited lifespan. For occasional, cocktail and dining tables, desks, casework, entertainment consoles and other fine furniture, true value lies in solid hardwood furniture that will become a cherished family heirloom rather than landfill material after a few years.

Rediscover the real value of quality hardwood furniture, ask us why the details of design, hardwood selection and craftsmanship matter.

Carefully selected solid hardwoods and time tested joinery methods compliment our thoughtful furniture design and allow for true heirloom quality in our collections, custom work, upholstered pieces and in our hardwood slab tops.

The enlightened consumer will delve into the details, and we love to talk about what makes our furniture, cabinetry and hardwood tops to be of unquestioned heirloom quality.

The Joinery and its importance in ensuring quality and generational endurance: We use the proven techniques of traditional furniture makers such as dovetail, mortise and tenon, splined lap and miter joinery among others proven methods. These joinery techniques have been used for many centuries and they are the foundation of quality heirloom furniture. Our finely crafted dovetailed drawers employ handcrafted wooded runners that ensure perfect operation for generations to come. Our furniture is designed and crafted to endure as cherished heirlooms.

Our Quality Hardwoods, Every Board is Hand Selected: We personally hand select each and every piece of wood for the furniture we build. Each piece or furniture is usually crafted in hardwood from the same tree to assure that the grain and color match as close as possible. We use wide grain matched boards for table tops, panels, drawers and casework which sets our furniture apart from even the finest US furniture manufacturers. To further illustrate that point, companies that mass produced furniture often must use many narrow strips, which are generally unmatched, to glue up tops, panels and case sides due to time constraints rather than how we are able to carefully selecting matched wide boards for each component of a particular piece.

Local Sustainable Hardwoods are our specialty: Our Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Ash furniture is crafted from hand selected boards that come from very large and old trees that have suffered storm damage or have "passed on" by other means. 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. By hand selecting our quality hardwoods, tops are grain matched and often book-matched while the color and texture is always consistent as each piece of furniture is often made from the same tree.

Our furniture designs offer a blend of timeless appeal and attention to assuring enduring quality.

Spiritcraft Design Furniture is handcrafted at 7 Jackson Street in East Dundee, Illinois. Our well equipped workshop features many large industrial quality machines that 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. These heavy, professional and industrial machines are again making quality American made furniture as they did in the past. Our furniture is shown in the adjacent Furniture and Decor Showroom within Interior Design Accents in beautiful downtown, East Dundee.

Lead Times, Delivery and Shipping of our Furniture: Although each piece of furniture is handcrafted one at a time, and often custom made, we have been able to keep our turn around times quite reasonable. Delivery times are dependent on many factors such as the quantity of pieces ordered, the complexity of the piece ordered and current lead time. Lead time can vary between 4 to 12 weeks with 6-8 weeks being average on most furniture orders. Please feel free to email us to inquire about our current workflow and lead times. Note: Furniture quality and longevity is directly related to the time spent in design, in the craftsmanship and in the finishing.
