Founded by Charles Shackleton and crafted by the master artisans of ShackletonThomas, the Naked Table workshops provide experienced guidance as attendees learn the fundamentals of sustainable furniture making. Intuitive instruction is paired with hands-on applications of mortise and tenon joinery and finishing techniques, allowing participants to quickly engage in the process and gain the confidence to craft their own tables.
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.
