Giving new life to Century Old Barnwood, our Urban Reclaimed Barnwood Collection is an excellent way to preserve history in a modern style.
Handcrafted by our talented Amish Craftsman in Ohio from local aged barns. With less farming and as these buildings continue to age, it comes a time to make a choice. Some barns are restored close to their original state and others are disassembled piece by piece to salvage as much as possible to be reclaimed. From there the lumber undergoes a cleaning and drying process. All the barnwood is run under a metal detector twice where the nails are marked and removed. It is then kiln-dried to 7% moisture, exterminating all the bugs and insects and ready to be crafted into stunning, modern furniture.
Embrace the vibrant personality of this Reclaimed Barnwood and be a part of its history. Each piece completely unique, its sure to make a statement in any room. Help us reduce the global footprint with this stunning Eco-Friendly Furniture.
Wood is a product of nature and therefore acts in ways beyond human control. All hardwood has variation in its color and grain. These wood characteristics will put their own unique touch to each piece of solid wood furniture. Even though we go through the same building process, no two pieces will be exactly the same.
Most hardwoods are open grained, causing solid wood furniture to expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity, even after protective finishes have been applied. These temperature changes may cause the wood to crack or have surface checks. This is not abnormal and these are not considered as flaws, but rather nature’s “beauty marks” which make each piece manufactured at West Point Woodworking a truly unique piece of furniture.
Indoor humidity should be kept in the 35-40% range to minimize these effects.Solid wood should be kept away from direct sources of heating and cooling and should not be stored in attics or basements. Direct sunlight and fluorescent fixtures that contain ultraviolet rays can cause chemical changes in wood and finish and therefore should be avoided.
When cared for properly your solid wood furniture will become a piece of timeless beauty, one that will be treasured for generations.

Forks Valley Woodworking strictly adheres to the proven craftsmanship they inherited from their ancestors. Dovetail joints, superior mortise and tenon construction, and full-extension drawer slides are just a few of the hallmarks of handcrafted furniture. Our artisans hold themselves to extremely high quality standards. This is displayed in the woods selected, the drying and cutting processes the wood must go through, custom finishes that bring out the natural beauty of the grains and hardware choices offered.
Our woodworkers believe furniture should be simple, durable, and practical. They add subtle curves, beautiful corbels, graceful turnings and elegant ebony insets to accent these fine works of art. Forks Valley Woodworking … furniture built to last a lifetime and designed to become cherished heirlooms for generations to come.
For centuries, fine furniture enthusiasts have known that the best desks, cabinets and hutches perfectly combine utility with beauty. Pieces designed for reading, writing and organizing papers have long been made to fulfill those dual requirements.
In comparatively recent times, the advent of television and computers has created a need for entertainment furniture, which also must be both functional and beautiful.
It is in this tradition of blending form with function that we at Dutchcreek create our entire product line, from home office pieces for working to home entertainment units for relaxing. And while we design furniture of classic beauty, we also keep a keen eye on changing consumer needs and tastes, to add the best in exciting new looks at the right time.
It all began in 2002, when Dutchcreek was established by James and Linda Weaver. A master craftsman with 27 years experience, James had a passion for creating and building original designs, and a desire to create jobs for his family and members of his local community.
For the next eight years the company grew. So much so, that in 2010, Dutchcreek erected a brand new structure with four times the room. Today, in this spacious work area, we focus on only one thing: designing and building the very best furniture we can. The second generation of the Weaver family works side-by-side with like-minded craftsmen from our local community to maintain our tradition of excellence.
Located in the gorgeous rolling hills of Wayne County, Ohio, Dutchcreek is surrounded by the idyllic natural beauty of fertile farms and oxygen-producing woodlands—a forest that has increased in size by some 3,000 trees in the last five years. The company planted the new trees as part of our ongoing reforestation efforts. That’s because we believe in giving back to the environment what we’re taking from it. Respect for nature is part of our nature. It’s just how we look at things.
Making outdoor spaces livable is more than a design trend to us. The outdoors is the perfect place to relax, unwind and connect with family. It puts us more in touch with God and his creation. Our tagline is truly meaningful to us, and we hope that our furniture helps you take life outdoors.™

Brothers Richard and Henry Yoder grew up watching their father work in his carriage building business and dreaming of the day when they could work with their hands next to their father. When their father passed away while they were still young boys, they decided to honor their father’s legacy by becoming craftsmen themselves.
They began by building furniture and cabinetry in their mother’s home in 2001, apprenticing under an experienced craftsman named Floyd Miller and producing a line of five different chair styles. As their business and expertise grew they expanded into a slightly larger facility and now have a 20,000-square foot state-of-the-art facility on Richard’s property, which is the home of R.H. Yoder Woodworking today.
From the humble beginnings of two young boys admiring their father’s work, two brothers have fulfilled their dream. They are now dedicated business owners, employing a team of craftsmen, and producing a full line of more than 70 different chair styles.
Their care and attention to detail shows in every piece of furniture they produce.
