How can the Amish build cabinets without the use of electricity? Some of the smaller cabinet shops we work with use hydraulics to operate their equipment. Other Amish cabinet makers seek and are given permission from their church to use modern technology, electricity and tools in order to make a living and support their families. The majority of Amish continue to maintain a simple lifestyle in their homes and their personal lives. You will never see a computer or TV in an Amish home.
