SPONSORS


 “Some people have asked me why Popular Woodworking would be a sponsor of someone else's magazine - and I say, in this case, why wouldn't we! … In some ways, it's the magazine I wish I could put out every two months - a heavy cover and thick, rich interior paper, oversized pages (and lots of them, 144 to be exact) and large photos, with a layout that feels appropriate for a museum journal (which in some ways, I think M&T is) … The work Joshua and his team are doing is important and exciting (and not available in any woodworking magazine you'll find on the newsstand)” – Megan Fitzpatrick, Popular Woodworking Magazine

 

The following are the businesses and individuals that sponsor M&T Issue Two.  Rather than inundate the magazine with loads of advertisements, we've decided to take a sponsorship model. This is a tasteful and unobtrusive way to highlight the mutual endorsement we share with all our Sponsors. The bottom line is: if someone is listed here it's because we support what they're doing and they support what we're doing. Everyone in this Directory has been hand selected for high quality and high integrity business practice. These folks share our vision to celebrate historic furniture making and offer tools, training, and inspiration to aid your creative life.

The Sponsors will be featured in in two places: Here at our Web Directory and in a Sponsor Directory at the end of each print issue. The Web Directory will be available all throughout the year until the following issue is released. Sponsorship opportunities are closed for Issue Two but Issue Three sponsorship will open summer 2017. If you would like more information about becoming a sponsor please email us at sponsorships@mortiseandtenonmag.com

If you are looking for recommendations of suppliers or makers, we recommend you look here first. We happily endorse and support these companies and hope you will too.

The Barn is the place I strive to rediscover the methods of historic furniture-related craftsmanship, and to explore new ways of interpreting them for the the present and the future.  Those applications range from methods of working especially with decorative surfaces (finishes and veneer-work primarily)  to recreating or re-interpreting traditional forms.
