There are a lot of reasons you would put a wood console table in your home.
First just the look of a wood console table can bring the beauty of the outdoors inside. Pieces of furniture like a hand crafted wood console table help reconnect with nature, and the past. It can take you back to a time when wood working was an art, and had a very human element involved in it.
If you really want to understand great wood console table craftsmanship, you should look for a wood console table that has been created by the Amish. The Amish community has been creating amazing pieces of wooden furniture for centuries.
While much of the rest of the world has decided to move forward and create furniture and other items using machines, the Amish have rejected those technological advances. Purchasing a wood console table that is Amish made, you will see that every piece, accent and detail were created by hand, in the true Amish tradition.
As a matter of fact, the entire Amish community is still that way, with their whole lifestyle being very much a step back in time. In many communities they do not allow cars or other motorized or electric devices, and instead are still using horse and carriage as the main method of transportation. When things need to be built, like a bar, the whole community comes together and builds it as one. This is a part of the past that many communities have lost touch with today. In the Amish life, the whole community is one large family and they all work to help one another.
The furniture of the Amish people were also originally a part of the community, but once those living on the outside saw the beauty of their wood working, they wanted to have a chance to have a piece of this furniture art in their homes as well. This started a way for the Amish community to be able to make more money for their families.
The desire to own hand-made Amish furniture has only grown in recent years, as there has been a trend to return to a more rustic living style in home décor. A wood console table or dining table is a great way to create that look in your home.
Wood console tables also have the benefit of being pieces that are all unique. While hundreds of tables can be made in the same style and design, the wood is always different. The grains of the wood will differ from cut to cut, and piece to piece, and can create a unique design that adds an extra level of beauty to the table.
No matter whether you are using modern technology, wood crafting techniques or the old world hand carved methods, wood is unique because it has been touched by human hands. Whether it’s the carvings, the smooth finish or the hand rubbed oils, someone touched that piece to make it into what it is in your home.
