What Have We Here ?
There is a word in many different languages for “communal work”, but there is perhaps no clearer example than the Amish tradition of barn raising. “Many hands make light work,” as the saying goes, and seeing a barn raised in a day by a committed community of hardworking people proves the old adage true. This shelf was made by modern Amish craftspeople with salvaged pine boards from their well-used barns.
How to Use It ?
What room can’t use a sturdy, simple shelf? Add a rustic yet utilitarian touch to your bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or living room by storing books, clothes, food or really whatever you please on this storied work of furniture.
Why It Matters ?
Amish belief prevents the use of electricity, so these talented craftspeople rely on diesel-generated hydraulic and pneumatic power for their modern tools.
