In the recent Sept.-Oct. issue of Old-House Interiors magazine the Naked Table Project is featured in the article "Naked Lunch, Anyone?" under the News & Views section. The article is prefaced by a great quote by Charles Shackleton, "We're big believers in things that are truly handmade."
Excerpt from the article:
"When furniture-maker Charlie Shackleton felt he needed to do something to revive his interest in woodworking--the co-owner of ShackletonThomas in Bridgewater, Vermont, has been at it for 22 years--he sent out an invitation to dozens of people to come build a table together. The Naked Table Project was born...The response to the Naked Table Project has been 'amazing,' says Shackleton. 'It resonated with a lot of people who weren't furniture-makers, which is great.'"

The writer (and also senior editor of the magazine) Mary Ellen Polson also features a black-carved tray by ShackletonThomas under the section Furnishings in this issue of the magazine. This lovely tray is decorated in the Tree of Life design.
