   Authentically Amish
It’s time to clear away those Ikea flatpacks leftover from your college days and welcome home the real thing. Authentically Amish Fine Furnishings in Alexandria offers the enduring quality of solid wood in classic Amish styles. Among the furniture available are bedside tables, magazine racks, dining room tables and chairs, and the distinctly un-Amish CD and DVD racks. Prices start in the triple digits, but remember, the wood is going to last a long time. Pieces are made from cherry, maple, oak and pine. Pine, being a softer wood, is on the cheaper end, and the one to look for if you’re on a budget. Cherry, a harder, scarcer wood is the most expensive. Wooden Amish games and toys perch on some of the bookshelves–possible gifts for the little tykes in your life. Finally, don’t leave the store without learning how to avoid mistaking veneer for solid wood. Then, go home and throw out the Ikea catalogues.

Comment: My Dad is a woodworker, and some of his favorite pieces to make are imitation Amish tables and chairs. I think the work is beautiful, and I would love to get some for my home. I also think it's cool that they mention here that you can learn the difference between veneer and solid wood
