Handcrafted Cabinets Withstand the Test of Time
Kountry Kraft is only one of a few cabinet manufacturers who dovetail our cabinet boxes. Handcrafted cabinets with dovetails adds superior stability that withstands wear and tear. Dovetailing creates an extremely strong joint between two pieces of wood that can endure heavy use. Most manufacturers don’t want the extra hassle and expense of dovetailing, at Kountry Kraft, we put the customer first and go the extra mile to make quality products. Dovetailing requires a great dexterity, and the craftsman here at Kountry Kraft acquire the needed skill sets and beyond.
Handcrafted cabinets bring a feeling of warmth and comfort into your home. Your Kountry Kraft cabinets are handcrafted uniquely for you, and that adds a personal touch to your space. Handcrafted cabinets allow the ability to produce cabinetry that no one else has in their home.

A quote from the Evalia Designs: “The client wanted a more open floor plan, her own personal office space that could be closed off when entertaining, two islands, and a Butler’s pantry. By removing the wall between the family room and existing kitchen we were able to create an open floor plan and help them achieve their dream kitchen design requests.”

Cabinet Hardware Ideas – Cliffside
Cliffside Industries offers two flagship hardware lines: solid brass and Cliffside Choice zinc. Many popular items and finishes are duplicated in both materials to allow a selection of price level. Traditional, transitional, and contemporary styles are available in up to eight finishes in zinc and ten in solid brass. The distinctions between the two products are a mild change in density and different manufacturing processes.
For marine climates (beachfront homes, etc.), Cliffside recommends solid brass or stainless steel materials. For all other locations, either product material should be sufficient if the product care instructions are followed. Cliffside’s brass and zinc hardware lines are finished to the same exacting standards and are designed to coordinate with our hinge line; however, minute variations in finish shading may occur between materials due to the color of the underlying metal (brass material is a gold color, while zinc is white). As always, antique finishes will vary from lot to lot regardless of material but remain within an acceptable range.

The American Heirloom Collection of fine furniture offers excellent quality and timeless designs that satisfy even the most discerning customers. This furniture line includes high quality custom chairs and benches available in a wide variety of styles to suit all of your design needs. American Heirloom custom chairs are built from Pennsylvania cherry, oak and maple harvested from the Northeastern USA and is crafted using state-of-the-art equipment to aid in the efficiency and quality of manufacturing, while still providing top quality craftsmanship consistent with handcrafted furniture.
American Heirloom custom chairs are made with fine attention to detail. We offer turned spindles that give character to chair design. Tenoned leg detail means chair legs are driven into the seat and then screwed in for additional durability. Frame chair legs are anchored with corner blocks under the seat to provide a solid structure. The line also features bent chair parts that are crafted using a steam bending process that provides beauty and comfort in chair décor. The wood is steamed for flexibility and then shaped and cramped in forms until it is set in the desired shape
American Heirlooms custom chairs offer a wide variety of seat options, including wood, fiber, leather, rush and fabric. Wood seats are by far the most durable seat option, but our other seats offer flexibility in style and design. Leather seats come in two grades – standard medium grade leather, or premium grade aniline leather imported from Europe. The line includes antique reproductions of Early American Windsor chairs that feature thick sculpted seats, leg & spindle wedge joinery and hickory bows and arms. The chair line also includes benches and stools to round out your home seating options.
Below is a gallery of some of the beautiful custom chairs in the American Heirlooms line to provide you with a sense of the scope of our seating options. To request a catalog of the full line of custom furniture, contact us at 610-589-4575.
Around the holidays last year we shared with you the inspirational story of how our company began when my mother, Helen Hurst purchased a Sears Table Saw for my father Elvin back in 1958. We love that story – and around the time we shared it with you we also sent it out to a few home and woodworking magazines that we thought might find it interesting. We were thrilled when Woodshop News magazine reporter Jennifer Hicks called us to let us know they read the story and she was interested in coming for an interview and a shop tour.
Woodshop News has been in print for 30 years. The publication is a favorite among woodshop owners and woodworkers with small to mid-sized woodshops, and has a very active readership of 70,000. They cover news, business trends, advice and new products for professional woodworkers. Their typical reader builds cabinetry, furniture, architectural millwork and remodeling projects. Our own staff are Woodshop News readers, so we were thrilled to have them stop by for a tour of our facility last week and meet my parents, Elvin Jr and myself.
Jennifer spent a good deal of time with my parents, hearing stories from the early days of Kountry Kraft, and learning how we grew from a staff of 2 to nearly 100 in the past 50+ years. It certainly wasn’t easy for my father to quit his job with a 14 month old and a 3 week old baby at home to launch our company. The path from a 28’ x 58’ shop to our current 90,000 square foot shop wasn’t always smooth, but our commitment to the Germanic principles of practical hard work and our strong sales philosophy of giving people what they want so they will come back for more still guide every decision we make today. Our path is a great example for other shops who start small with big dreams for the future.
I don’t want to scoop Jennifer and our friends at Woodshop News, but watch for a story in the May or June issue this year. Visit woodshopnews.com for some great content for woodworkers, and consider a subscription to encourage the woodworker in your life – you never know what might become of it 🙂

American Heirloom custom tables can be built in many shapes and styles. The line includes both dropleaf and drawleaf tables to provide extra space when needed. Style options include rectangle extension, round extension, gathering extension, farm tables, dinette, Queen Ann, pedestal, pub, innkeeper, colonial, reeded, and Yarmouth extension tables.
Custom tables are available with a variety of edge options and finishes, including hand-planed tops that give finished tables a truly authentic antiqued appearance. Table legs are bolted to sturdy corner brackets to provide secure leg support, extending the life of the furniture. Legs also include table levelers to adjust to uneven flooring, a finishing touch not often found in commercially manufactured tables. All American Heirlooms pedestal tables have extension slides to provide smooth extension that is dependable for years of use. Many of the extension and pedestal tables also have self-storing leaves, eliminating the need to find a safe place to store leaves between uses.
Pictured below is a round shaker custom table and eight spindle arm chair and side chairs from the American Heirlooms series. This is just one of the many table styles available in the line.
