Jacob Shetler serves as Bishop for his Amish congregation. A genuine and sincere man, “Jake” is well known for his willingness to give his time, guidance, and help to others. While growing up on a farm, he learned woodworking from his father. Jake worked in a sawmill (too noisy he said) and later spent nine years constructing houses and barns. He started building furniture for us in 1985 and specializes in making Nine-Pane Secretaries – our most labor-intensive piece. He is pictured here with Eli, one of his “30-some” grandchildren.
