Perhaps the most astonishing development in the unfinished furniture field has been the rapid growth of the fine-wood furniture kit, for which you will pay from several hundred to over a thousand dollars per piece. An outstanding example of this type of kit is made hy the Hartley Collection in Lake Forest, Illinois. Heath, the well-known electronic kit manufacturer, of Benton Harbor, Michigan, also has a fine line of these kits.

For kits by these and others in this relatively new end of the business, you pay premium prices and receive kits with beautifully machined parts in woods. Hartley furniture kits arc authentic duplicates of items in the Henry Ford Museum or at Greenfield Village, Michigan, so with a Hartley piece you get both lovely antique design and fine woods.

Furniture kits have been available for a long time. Yield House, of North Conway, New Hampshire, has been offering high-quality pine furniture in kit form for over 30 years. So the idea isn't new. But broad public acceptance of the kit idea is new.
