Archive for the ‘Lapp’s wood working’ Category

Moses the Amish hat maker also comes to mind as one place where i felt welcomed and my experience there was a very positive one, so look for that post sometime in the future from me. Johns business is a family affair with him and his brother running the business that they originally bought from his cousin, so there has been a Lapp’s wood working for sometime now.

 And of course his mom helps out and folks she does not have to go far as she lives in a farm house right behind the woodshop. I’ve told John that i would help him with designing his web site maybe a little better to reflect his retail business and to include prices and shipping cost. 


So with the month of November being upon us some of you might be thinking about Christmas gift buying,  so please stop by Johns web site and give his Amish made wood products a look. From what I’ve seen i think his workmanship is very good and his prices are fair, so here again is that link to his web site.Just click on to Richard from Amish Stories
