Detailed View

The "Antique Postman's Desk" of 1999
In 1999 Schmidt Cabinet Company celebrated their 40th anniversary. In honor of this occasion, we built a replica of an "Antique Postman's Desk." We only built 40 desks and each desk is numbered with a gold plate. We put a modest price of $750 on the units and they sold out in 7 days. In 2004 one of the desks sold for $3500.00; not a bad investment. We have had many requests to build more of these desks, but we will not build them again.

A History
The rolling hills of Southern Indiana have a serenity all their own; the blooming dogwood trees that line the country lanes in the spring, the freshly painted barn across the meadow and the hum of the distant sawmill. This is an area where craftsmen are molded. They take their dreams and turn them into reality.

In 1959 John Schmidt and his two sons, Callie and Oddie, started their dream - Schmidt Cabinet Company. They had a simple philosophy; build it right, build to last, and keep it affordable.

As the years passed, the Schmidt family grew. As the second generation comes to pass, the craftsmanship is handed down. The ideals and ambitions of youth are meshed together with high morals and ethics of the past, making them a company of the future.

The opportunity to invest in the pride and comfort of your home is what we at Schmidt Cabinet offer to you.

Our goal is to fashion an exciting kitchen for the chef of the family, the stately study for the scholar, the compact office and computer center for the person who puts family first, and the elegant home theater center for those fun times with family and friends.

Our aim is not to be everything to everyone, but to craft limited quantities of high quality furniture and to give our customers personal and individually unique products.
