My wife and I travelled to Chouteau in 2008 to meet the craftsmen who make Amish crafted furniture.  We purchased a chest of drawers.  At that time it was only the second piece of high quality furniture that we had ever purchased.  Raising five children, we had decided that we would buy lesser quality furniture until the kids had grown up and could be counted on to take care of nice furniture.  Since that first trip we have purchased three rooms of bedroom furniture and a dining room table with eight chairs and buffet.  Now we have a house of fine furniture that the children will fight over when we are gone.  I highly recommend Amish crafted furniture to anyone who values quality furniture and wants to buys pieces that will pass down through the generations of your family.”
