The Quality of Cabinfield Amish Handcrafted Gazebos
Real Amish Craftsmen. Real Quality Gazebos.
Cabinfield brings quality gazebos to you direct from Amish craftsmen in Pennsylvania and Ohio, homes to two of the largest Amish communities in the U.S. These fine furniture and gazebo manufacturers are steeped in Amish culture; their owners and employees live the Amish lifestyle. Your pieces are not crafted in modern-day, production-line facilities; instead, they are designed and crafted on Amish farms and in Amish workshops without telephones and electricity.
The Amish craftsmen and artisans who will create your gazebo are led by experienced Amish woodworking professionals; master craftsmen who have been designing and building gazebos since their teens. From wood selection to assembly, your gazebo is crafted by Amish family and local community members. As the leader of one artisan group says, “We build each gazebo as if it were going in our own yard. We inspect our work continually while we are building — from the moment we remove the wood from the truck until we load the gazebo up for shipping to your home.”
“And,” he says, “Our gazebos are built by Amish labor 100% through and through, which comes with traditional Amish values. The Amish work ethic is old school. Our men aren’t just here to put in hours — they’re here to build a good, quality product.”
The Cabinfield Quality Difference is in the Details
As a purchaser of a handcrafted Cabinfield gazebo, expect a high-quality difference that results from attention to many little details.
With a Cabinfield Gazebo, Expect:
Why It`s Important
Durable, stainless-steel screws >>
When wood is exposed to the elements, it swells and contracts. Our stainless-steel screws hold better under this stress and do not work themselves out.
Sturdy construction >>
Cabinfield brings you a sturdy gazebo with a heavier weight than those of our competitors — up to 1,000 pounds heavier! For instance, when our Amish friends construct your gazebo, depending on the model, they use floorboards ranging from 5/4-inch deck board to 2 x 6 inch floorboards, 1ѕ inches thick! This sturdy construction increases your gazebo’s life expectancy; with proper care, your gazebo will last for 30, 40, or more years!
Select grade woods >>
Your gazebo, unless it’s a cedar model, will be crafted with select-grade Southern yellow pine grown specifically for this purpose in Georgia, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Select-grade wood, also known as #1 or “clear,” gives you the most uniform color and is without knots that might affect your gazebo’s structural integrity. Cabinfield's standard cedar gazebos are crafted with cedar “tight knot,” so called because the wood is not clear. Instead, cedar tight knot has “tight knots” that will not affect the structural integrity of your gazebo. Clear cedar, without knots, is an available upgrade. And, if you choose a do-it-yourself gazebo kit, you'll be glad to know that all gazebos, cedar or pine, feature predrilled screw holes to prevent wood splitting.
Splinter-free, smoothed wood >>
All exposed wood is milled and edges are eased so your gazebo will be safe and splinter-free.
Thoroughly dried wood >>
While other gazebo manufacturers kiln-dry wood used to build your gazebo after pressure treatment, Cabinfield’s Amish craftsmen dry wood in the kiln before, as well as after, it is sent to the treatment plant. After treatment, the wood used to create your Cabinfield gazebo dries at the mill for up to six months, so it’s 100% dry, which minimizes the likelihood of splitting.
