All of the work that John Strauss Furniture Design, Ltd. manufactures utilizes the best that modern technology has to offer with the traditional jointery and finishing skills that are necessary to craft heirloom quality furniture. John works with several craftspeople in an atelier to produce the kind of works of art that cannot be found from a factory made furniture company or in those shipped from overseas. These works, made here in the United States, are created uniquely and in limited editions which insures that each piece gets individual attention. The finished piece is marked with a brand heated by fire of the John Strauss Furniture Design logo and dated to insure its value and origin for years to come. Much of the solid wood that John Strauss Furniture Design uses comes from the Appalachian Hardwood Forest near the Amish region close by John's Ohio Workshop. Passing horse-drawn carriages on his way back to the studio with kiln-dried lumber to create timeless works of furniture is a secret pleasure of the trade in his part of the State.
