The Hoosier Cabinet - A Culinary Work Station

[caption id="attachment_1193" align="aligncenter" width="490" caption="Ad & Hoosier"][/caption]
From Indiana Public Media Article by Yaël Ksander

I've always wanted a Hoosier Cabinet (after I found out what it was). Besides being a big, honkin piece of furniture, it has a function besides hiding all your kitchen clutter.

This week we'll journey to the land of Hoosier's and get a glimps of how these pieces fit in the turn-of-the-century kitchen.

If your lucky enough to own one send me some pictures (I'd love to see them and will share on the blog). Send them to ramonasclutter@aol.com

Can I add a link for an upcoming post on accessories for the Hoosier? I can add a link to my Pinterest too. You can send a message to me if you want. My blog is growing every day (knock on wood).

I'm glad people can find great hardware, the icing on the cake!

Craig - Glad you added the book below. There are so many different companies who made these Hoosiers and also a lot that were "home made" or "one-of-a-kind".

For anyone interested I used Pinterest to keep all my information. My pinterest Hoosier Cabinet board has all the sites I used for research. If I do say so myself - it's impressive!

Hoosier was a brand and a slang name for all of this type of cabinet, as I think almost 95% of all of these were made in Indiana, the cabinet in the upper right real photo is I believe a Nappanee brand cabinet. some other brands are McDougall, Wilson, Boone, Sellers, Nappanee, Old Mothers Cupboard, as well as many many more.

Hoosier type cabinets were made in many sizes and styles and finishes, sized for the small 24 inch wide standard height cabinets to the 48-54 inch wide cabinets, they also did a taller top for on the cabinets, did pantry, as well as broom closet free standing cabinets to sit on either side the same height and as deep as the top, to whole wall units in the late 20's compartmental like building blocks I would guess never seen one in real life just in advertisments. they also did a drop leaf table and chairs finished to match also


If interested check out the book done on Hoosier cabinets done by Philip Kennedy 168 pages should cost new between 15-20 dollars  shows lots of pictures as well as copies of original adds

if you can not find one local we sell them for $18. + postage
