    Any product made in America is superior and that adorable step stool proves me correct! Plus it would enhance my kitchen decor and the ability to reach the high cupboards. *fingerscrossed*

  • Reply Marie May 7, 2014 at 10:05 am

    I had been contemplating ordering from you for many months and finally took the plunge. I am eagerly awaiting the desk and printer table! 🙂 Your furniture appears to be just what I have been looking for in American-made, solid-wood, simple furniture.

  • Reply Gloria Anne May 13, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    All your furniture is wonderful. I have all the special items made to encourage Buy American, including the step stool. I will offer an idea, to make the step stool safer when standing and stretching forward on it, to reach something high up, or in back of a cupboard or closet, especially if used on tile or wood floors. Attaching corrugated rubber to the bottom “legs” will help to keep the stool from sliding, even slightly, from under one’s feet, causing a fall. That would be an extra safety precaution for what is really an excellent product. Thank you for your excellent work, I am proud to own what you produce.

    Making quality wood furniture is true craftsmanship. Having the furniture “Made in the U.S.A.” is essential to the longevity of American jobs. Thank you for such great quality products.

    The step stool would be great for climbing into bed.

    It seems as I get older things get harder to reach, and that little step stool would be just the thing I need!

  • Reply clynsg May 1, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    I could certainly use that stool. I have several step stools in the house, although none as attractive as that one, and somehow they are never in the appropriate place to use without hunting them up from wherever they have migrated to–I strongly suspect help from other family members is the major ingredient in the migration.

    Every Grandma needs one of these to help teach her grandchildren how to wash their hands.

    This would come in handy when you are 5’1″ and need to get something up high.

    I have ordered and received 3 lovely side tables and a TV tray. I am very pleased with the quality, the price, the ease of assembling, and the fact that they are made in the U.S. If I should win this month’s raffle, I will recieve the nicest step stool I’ve ever owned!

    It took a while to find the comment sections but here it is. All your products look great.

  • Reply Kit Grier May 3, 2016 at 10:08 pm

    I have been very pleased with the look and the quality of the three end tables and TV tray I ordered. The assembly that was needed came with great instructions and, unlike some other things I’ve assembled, everything matched up beautifully. If I should win the step stool, it will be the nicest one I’ve ever owned.

    The hardwood step stool would be very useful in the kitchen and it looks so good we would not need to try and hide it

    The hardwood step stool would be very useful in the kitchen. It looks great so we could leave it out keeping it handy

  • Reply John Barrow May 9, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    I am pleased to have found your company and acquired beautifully crafted hardwood furniture that can be passed on to my children and their children. Every piece I acquire is a treasure, whether purchased or won by raffle, and the USA label on the product you sell, offers premium hardwood items to those of us who live on the other side of the continent, in deep south Texas, to acquire those wooden options not readily available from our warm climate zone. Thank you for your high business standards.

    Kudos on letting the group use the land for organic farming. Manchester Wood just went up an entire notch in my eyes. I love your furniture, with the most compliments on the slate top coffee table. It’s so well made and when I went to the factory it was easy to see why. Your employees are top notch. The one piece of furniture I regretted not buying was the corner desk. I’m still hoping that some day it comes back into production. That little step stool would be very sweet to reach my upper kitchen cabinet. Much better than standing on a chair.

  • Reply Krista Varszegi May 18, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    After browsing your website, I am quite impressed by all of the pieces I see. I look forward to buying from your company in the future & I sure would not mind winning the pretty step stool.

    I love your Mission furniture and am sitting at my Mission desk as I type this. I would have a use for that step stool. It would fit right in.
    I am enjoying pictures of the Retro end table. It is so close to the one my Mom had for ever and that my sons are now enjoying. I may just
    have to add one or two when we get our addition built.

    The step stool would be perfect for my kitchen because I currently have to stand on a chair to reach higher cabinets. I haven’t seen any of your pieces that I didn’t like. The natural wood is beautiful and the craftsmanship is like no other. I would love to own any of your tables and other pieces.

  • Reply Ellen B May 21, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    I love the look of the step stool and I really use one of these. This has nice clean lines and is not too fancy – love it!

  • Reply Bhavana Soni April 12, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Real wood furniture has always been a staple of good design, and the craze of DIY furniture has brought skilled woodworking with natural materials back into the limelight. Real wood furniture is desirable because of its durability, resistance to scratches or gouges and its natural beauty. Nice product. Thank you
