With only a few short hours left in 2013 here on the east coast at our mill in the Adirondack foothills we wish to share with you some benchmark accomplishments, initiatives, and insights that have made 2013 a special year here at Manchester Wood. We can’t express our gratitude enough for how great a year its been for us as a business, especially with ManchesterWood.com, a growing quality American made furniture source online for our exclusive furniture made right here.

And, regardless of competition and the unfortunate domestic disposition, it’s also another proud year of making you 100% Made in USA solid wood furniture locally right from our mill in upstate New York
Our family business of hardworking craftspeople has had many years in woodworking, and we can’t help to think 2013 was a special one. We look forward to serving you the finest in affordable sturdy, long-lasting American made furniture in 2014 and the many more years to come ahead.
We’re proud to kick off 2014 with a “product showcase” featuring all-new Manchester Wood products for the New Year. The general themes of these pieces has been “nesting,” “space-saving,” “convenient,” “practical,” and most importantly “unique,” and “hard-to-find” anywhere else. We’ve scoured through antique shops and old draft books this past year reinventing the old, as well as completely renovating with the new. Items such as the Compact Workstation Table, which originated from a “gossip bench” concept but has become something entirely new and fresh for the modern day. The Multipurpose Coffee Table Nesting Set of 4, which carries a long name and even a longer list of ways to use it, incorporating TV tray table ideas with coffee table function creating a truly unique and practical offering. Nesting sets in the Shaker table category with Chairside Nesting Tables Set of 3 and 2, the vintage Log Rack also finds a revival, and a few items that came late in 2013 also find a home here.
On our social media and blog you’ll find product spotlights as the weeks go on, including a rotating cast of each products unique back-story.
At Manchester Wood we truly feel honored to provide you the most affordable handcrafted solid wood furniture items entirely ‘Made in the USA’ on the market today. We hope you enjoy these new products as much as we enjoyed making them for you! Happy 2014!
