Gift Guide Spotlight: Nesting Shaker Tables

Gift Guide Product: Nesting Shaker TablesStylish…Convenient…Practical… The perfect look for function and display, our Nesting Shaker Tables offer an array of uses around the home. Ideal for small space solutions and built to last from American solid hardwood.

In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s we made TV tray tables, sets of 3 stacking tables and basic nesting tables. Each of these items allowed people to be able to quickly expand their living space to accommodate friends and extended family to enjoy visits while creating extra serving/table space for dining, cocktail parties, games, and snacks.

The nesting sets come with 3 different sized tables to slide under each other to take as little space as possible while being able to quickly pull out and move around the room or home to give you more serving/usable tabletop space.  They were basically designed to take the place of an end table in a room and have the 2 additional tables hidden underneath the largest table.

Shaker has been a tried and true design that fits in with all decors, contemporary, as well as traditional settings. Our newly designed nesting set is based on the success of the chairside tables we developed to fit in narrow, tight spaces in your room and allow you to have usable tabletop space.  We decided to offer another chairside option, but this time bring back the nesting table design and make it to fit narrow spaces since our chairside tables have been so popular.  These tables not only are used as expanded table space but are designed even to be used as extra seating space, or to be used as stools based on the sturdy design with heavy metal corner brackets and 6/4” solid ash legs. We also decided to offer the traditional set of 3 as well as add a set of 2 for people who wanted the extra table but didn’t find the need for a third.

Nesting tables have been used as plant stands, stools, end tables, game tables, serving snack tables, party tables, stack your magazines or books on them, and now your electronic devices – all while using very little floor space in your rooms.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we’ve enjoyed making them for you.

TV Trays: Perfect for Work & School

TV Trays at Manchester WoodTV Trays make perfect sense for this fall weather. We’re getting back to school and the grind of work after hours in the now cooler, calmer nights.

At Manchester Wood our TV Trays are some of the most sought after in the market. Not only are they made of solid hardwood, but they’re also 100% made in America at our mill in Upstate New York in the Adirondack foothills. Backed by our Quality Guarantee and Free Shipping Always, you’ll find many of our customer testimonials are in rave review of these TV trays.

During the early 1980s, Manchester Wood transitioned from specializing in smaller wood products to focusing on producing larger solid wood furniture pieces, such as TV trays. From solid ash American hardwood with a sturdy double glide undercarriage, the TV tray tables were designed for the fast paced world in which we live with a sturdy, quality product to support us day-in-and-day-out. That’s just what this product has come to do.

Whether you use it for your laptop, or to pay the bills, our folding TV tray tables provide a comfortable and convenient workspace. As the years have gone by new and improved versions have become available. Our new Portable Folding Tray Table Desk Set for example has a curved shape that fits close to you while also adding a spacious work area to the sides for convenient extra workspace. It also features a cutout built-in handle that allows you to move with more ease. In developing this product, we combined the two most popular designs of our folding TV trays – the Contemporary and Portable Folding Work and Laptop Desk to offer you an exclusive variation made perfect for the home or office space.

As always, all our products are crafted from sustainable Northeast hardwood at our mill in the Adirondack foothills of New York; built to last generations.
