About

Hello!
My name is Jonas Zook Jr. I’m an Amish craftsman with over 15 years’ experience building premium wood furniture. www.pinnaclewoodcraft.com But that’s today – let me tell you how I got here.
When I was younger, I worked for a popular furniture manufacturer, learning the basics of the trade. I guess you could say things went well, because soon one of the company’s affiliates – a furniture dealer , in fact – approached me to ask if I could design a wood dog crate that would make his dog happy, and look good in his living room at the same time.
So I told him “sure! I could do that”, and he gave me a picture he thought would be a good starting point. I’ll admit, we did go through several revisions based on his feedback, but by the time a year had passed, it was perfect: we had custom built a designer dog crate that was as pleasing to the dogs as it…

Hello!

When I was younger, I worked for a popular furniture manufacturer, learning the basics of the trade. I guess you could say things went well, because soon one of the company’s affiliates – a furniture dealer , in fact – approached me to ask if I could design a wood dog crate that would make his dog happy, and look good in his living room at the same time.
So I told him “sure! I could do that”, and he gave me a picture he thought would be a good starting point. I’ll admit, we did go through several revisions based on his feedback, but by the time a year had passed, it was perfect: we had custom built a designer dog crate that was as pleasing to the dogs as it was to their owners! Built from solid wood and quality hardware – this thing was going to last a lifetime and, with proper care, much longer than that.
Anyway, before long we began selling a lot of these Amish wood dog crates. By this time, my own dogs were all moved in to their comfy new homes (I even made them some fancy dog beds!), and I could see what all the fuss was about – not only were my dogs happier, but we were enjoying a closer relationship too! On top of that, all my visitors were complimenting my beautiful new wood pet furniture.
Personal and Candid
That’s how I like business to be, every time. I’d rather work and deal with real people – wouldn’t you?
That’s why I decided to “cut out the middle man”.
I really want animals – and people – to have a more comfortable lifestyle. That’s why I decided to start retailing my own quality products. By offering you, my customers, higher quality and a better price than you’ll find elsewhere, I know that I can help more people and pets get the most out of their shared space!

Honest Heirloom Quality
That was awhile back now, and things are really moving. I formed Pinnacle Woodcraft so that my friends and I – Amish craftsmen every one – can personally create wood pet furniture that meets your needs precisely. We built this virtual storefront to help us do just that – let’s talk!
You might have heard that the Amish are world-famous for producing high quality, beautiful wood furniture – the best in the world. Well, I don’t like to brag, but that statement isn’t just an old wives’ tale. It’s true to the letter.
Pinnacle Woodcraft at a Glance
• We don’t have a factory – we have a workshop
• We believe in personal attention and honest quality that lasts a lifetime
• We put generations’ worth of hands on expertise into every piece
• We use innovative techniques that to craft custom pet furniture at factory prices
