Amish Renegades is a reality TV show that aired on the DIY network from October to November 2014. It follows the story of five Amish craftsmen, who have left their community to pursue their passion for woodworking and entrepreneurship. The show documents their journey as they set up their own business in Ohio and navigate the challenges of the modern world while maintaining their Amish values and traditions.

The show's premise centers around the five craftsmen, who hail from different Amish communities in the United States. There is Mose, the team leader and master woodworker, Freeman, the brains behind the business who keeps the team on track, Albert, the negotiator who strikes deals with customers, Danny, the apprentice who is learning the ropes, and Jolin, the youngest member of the team who brings a fresh perspective to the business.

The team faces a number of challenges as they set up their business, including getting the necessary permits, finding funding, and adapting to the modern tools and techniques of woodworking. They also face personal challenges, such as homesickness and cultural clashes. The show depicts how the team works together to overcome these difficulties, and how they learn to balance their Amish roots with their aspirations for success.

One of the most striking aspects of the show is how it portrays Amish culture in a positive and respectful light. The craftsmen are proud of their heritage and values, and they bring their unique perspective to their work. They use traditional woodworking techniques, such as hand-planing and mortise-and-tenon joinery, to create beautiful and functional furniture. They also emphasize the importance of family, community, and honesty in their dealings.

However, the show also highlights the challenges that come with being Amish in the modern world. The craftsmen must navigate unfamiliar technology, such as power tools and computers, and they must also deal with customers who may not understand their way of life. They also face prejudice and skepticism from some members of the community, who view their decision to leave as a betrayal of their faith.

Throughout the series, the craftsmen impart valuable lessons about woodworking and entrepreneurship. They teach viewers about the importance of craftsmanship, attention to detail, and customer service. They also demonstrate how to work as a team, how to negotiate deals, and how to adapt to changing situations. In this way, the show serves as an inspiration to aspiring woodworkers and entrepreneurs alike.

Overall, Amish Renegades is a fascinating look into a world that is often hidden from view. The show offers a unique perspective on Amish culture, and it sheds light on the challenges and opportunities that come with leaving the community. It also provides valuable insights into woodworking and entrepreneurship, making it a must-watch for anyone interested in these fields. Despite its short run, the show has gained a dedicated following, and it continues to inspire viewers to this day.
