The following are the businesses and individuals that sponsor M&T. 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.

Our sponsors are featured in two places: Here at our Web Directory and in a Sponsor Directory at the end of each print issue. The current list of sponsors will remain on the Web Directory until the following issue is released. If you would like more information about becoming a sponsor please email us at sponsorships@mortiseandtenonmag.com
