Shaker Tables: Timeless Quality

Shaker Tables at Manchester Wood

Shaker tables have a storied legacy… We continue to tell it in timeless quality, fashion, and design.

Manchester Wood’s Shaker tables have a story too, beyond the original Shaker style furniture origins. It begins in the mid-70′s in a tiny bustling tourist town called Manchester, Vermont – an hour drive from the actual inception of Shaker furniture. Manchester is nestled in between the Taconic and Green Mountain ranges. It’s attraction has grown and grown as more people discover it’s quaint, charming essence – not to mention the beautiful foliage and ski seasons at Stratton and Bromley nearby. In fact, the iconic Burton Snowboards started in Manchester. We unloaded their first pallet of plywood snowboards and shared our knowledge that would later assist in the creation of their first production facility there.

As time went on Manchester Wood, much like Shaker furniture evolved and found its subtle, natural craftsmanship elsewhere when we moved our operations just across the border in New York state. Manchester had outgrown us, and we found ourselves back in the countryside, nestled against another set of mountains… the Adirondacks.

How do Shaker tables and Manchester Wood have anything in common aside from our Shaker Collection? Well, we’re both subtle. Timeless in quality and fashion. There really isn’t much that’s changed for Shaker furniture. There really isn’t much that’s changed about Manchester Wood. Both are here for the function and freedom that comes with American ingenuity and expression.

Experience our Shaker tables and the storied legacy they carry not only as a style, but as apart of our brand. Do you have a Shaker furniture story? Share with us in the comment section below!

Quality Isn’t The Point, It’s Guaranteed.

We care about Quality. Just take a look at our finishing line and you’ll find the stringent testing and rework to make a piece of furniture perfect.

We care about how our furniture arrives at your door. Simple as that. Quality is key, and affordability to the value of our product is second-to-none. On ManchesterWood.com you’ll find quality, affordable priced solid wood furniture made in America. But what else?

SQuality - Seth Godineth Godin wrote “Quality, like feedback, is a trap. To focus on reliably meeting specifications (a fine definition of quality) is to surrender the real work, which is to matter. Quality of performance is a given, it’s not the point.” Seth has a way of words we enjoy to read when it comes to business advice. And well, it always seems to strike us in a positive way.

In short, the real work is to matter. The quality product we provide is guaranteed.

At least when you’re talking about a business with integrity and commitment that extends beyond the bottom line. When quality is actually a given, something much larger happens… significance. Manchester Wood matters because we employ a local community of 60-plus woodworkers. We matter because we care about American jobs rather than outsourcing our work to dramatically cut costs we stayed here instead, just as our forefathers did. Because it felt right. We matter because our company founder believed in jobs over profit. We matter because we’re a small piece of what’s left in an American made economy with simple ingenuity and refinement. Now couple that tradition with modern products, and you’ll find why we matter today at Manchester Wood.

Beyond the quality and design of a product, what do you think matters?
