“I wanted to design some furniture that a younger generation could afford as they are starting out in life. Using locally grown, wide White Pine boards finished with Vermont Natural Coatings—a durable whey based finish—my two senior furniture makers built a classic design maintaining our traditional joinery, without some of the more intricate hand made details found on our more sophisticated pieces. The Farmer’s Table is plain, simple, beautiful, and well-built. After many meals, well-worn jokes, and stories around this table, you will be able to hand it down to your children as they are starting out on their own.” —Charles Shackleton

Each piece of our furniture is handmade by one of our exceptional craftspeople in the traditional manner from beginning to end. From rough milling, to shaping with hand tools, to the waxing of the finished piece, each maker coordinates mind, body, and tools to create classic designs with unmistakable character -- heirlooms to last for generations.
