"connecting people to eachother and the environment through making things by hand"

Started in 2009 by Charles Shackleton and ShackletonThomas, The Naked Table Project brings people together by making tables by hand from locally-grown trees. The project invites groups of about 15 participants to local workshops to make a plain, simple, contemporary family table. The groups follow the process from tree to table, learning about its assembly, designating a replacement tree in the woods from which their table came, meeting the loggers, furniture makers, kiln driers, and everyone else in the table's life cycle, and finally joining together for a community celebration on the finished tables, feasting on locally-grown food together before the table makes it to its final home.
