Manchester Wood: American Made Furniture Jelly Cabinets
When searching storage options for the kitchen, as well as for the home office, dining room, or study room, look no further than the solid wood furniture made in the USA by Manchester Wood. Our well-crafted cabinetry with Americana country favored styling is one of the more popular, yet often overlooked, options in Shaker furniture style.
ABC World News with Diane Sawyer’s Made in Americaseries featured our Tall Double Jelly Cabinet on a ‘Made in USA Home Makeover’ edition last season. Among other options of our solid wood cabinets are the Double Jelly Cabinet, Tall Jelly Cabinet, and Side Table.
The term ‘Jelly Cabinet’ dates back to early America and it was used — as one might expect — for holding “the jams and jellies through canning from seasonal gardens. Jelly was important when fresh fruit was lacking from the diet due to the [area’s colder, non-harvesting seasons.] The cabinets protected produce (and occasionally baked goods) from rodents in days before refrigerators were widely used and homes lacked built-in cabinets. The cabinets were constructed of materials such as wood with iron strap hinges. They were mainly used in the kitchen, but as they became popular to place in other rooms of the house (and to store more than jelly), the wood and finish used became more refined.” *read more: What Is a Jelly Cabinet? | eHow.com http://bit.ly/14nw5TF

We at Manchester Wood thank him for his civil service and believe as his speech in the video link below states, that “the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.” May justice for all things that need to be made just, be found just today, and forever on.
Finding furniture that fits can be challenging when living in smaller spaces. However, at Manchester Wood, many of our handcrafted wood furniture products can be an ideal match for apartment and condominium living.
For example, when looking for an end table for tighter spaces, try our narrow end tables, like the Chairside table series featuring our popular Chairside Storage Table and Chairside Bookshelf. While browsing the end tables with storage, check out our Periodical End Table with Drawer too.
Mobility, storage, and workspace are also key factors for smaller living quarters, and our answer to that is our Multipurpose Cart, a customer favorite for over 30 years.
We find home office furnishings are a need in any living environment; and although apartment and condominium living offers little space for these working areas, we offer affordable wood desks for home in compact fashion with our Mission Secretary Desk, Mission Compact Desk, Shaker Compact Desk, and the ultra-mobile TV tray-hybrid Portable Folding Work and Laptop Desk.
When it comes to the living room no home is complete without an effective and stylish handcrafted solid wood furniture item as a centerpiece of discussion and craftsmanship. Our two most accessible options to date for this sort of quality apartment condominium living furniture: the Oval Coffee Table and the Tray Top Coffee Table, which offers the mobility of a portable tray surface with classic Americana lines.
Whether shopping for a larger home or looking for quality furniture in a tight space with a reasonable budget, look no further than Manchester Wood for affordable, high quality, solid wood furniture that is completely made in the USA.

Manchester Wood’s #GiftGiving2012 Collection Spotlight
Earlier this year Manchester Wood started a specialty collection entitled $64 Gifts for U.S. Jobs featuring some of our American made furniture at a flat rate of $64 dollars with FREE SHIPPING. It was added on to bring a deeper awareness of quality furniture made in the USA at a reasonable price. Why $64? We chose this amount based on a study conducted by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, which found that if each person in the country spent $64 dollars on American made items it would create 200,000 new American jobs. In light of this study, Manchester Wood offered this collection of affordable hardwood furniture at just $64. Since our creation, Manchester Wood has understood the value of quality American craftsmanship and believes in the American worker who produces products made in the USA that last longer and perform better.
It’s a perfect collection to shop for gifts this holiday season! And for your item to arrive on time for Christmas please place all of your orders by Friday December 14th.
Support Made in USA Furniture, the American Worker, and give your loved ones a quality gift that will last a lifetime! And it’s only $64!

Manchester Wood’s #GiftGiving2012 Product Spotlight
Portable Folding Work and Laptop Desk in Golden Oak finish
It’s been amazing for us to find our solid wood TV trays are as popular today as they were in the early 80’s when we began making them! It’s to no surprise however that people still actively use tray tables as a means of mobility and convenience around the home because they are perfect for a temporary workspace or for a meal while catching up with our favorite programs.
At Manchester Wood we have a variety of folding TV tray table sets, from our traditional Rectangular, Oval, Contour, and Contemporary designs in either sets of two and four, to the more modernized Portable Folding Work and Laptop Desk and the incredibly affordable $64 Lap Desk; which is featured among several $64 items in a gift collection supporting U.S. job creation through reasonably priced made in USA products (please note that all of our furniture is entirely made in the USA at our mill).
Thank you so very much! Finally, a company that understands quality and craftsmanship. I just now received my Contemporary Folding TV Tray Table set. It is not only gorgeous; it’s solid and so well made. Just like I remember when I was a youngster. My great uncle was a woodworker, so I do know a little about quality woodwork and this is the perfect example.
Thank you for proving that America still has what it takes. You folks are artists.
