building is one that’s already built.
Adaptive re-use of existing infra-structure is the
ultimate ‘green building’ technique. We are very proud
to have re-colonized an abandoned turn-of-the-last-century
brick building situated in the heart of downtown St.
Our operations have in no way
contributed to sprawl, or destruction of surrounding farmland.
We utilize existing road, water supply, wastewater and
electrical infrastructure. We walk to local banks with our
paychecks, stroll to the Hilltopper for lunch, visit the

of local agriculture.
Family farms are an important part of the Vermont economy. We
support local agriculture by donating all of our sawdust
and wood shavings to local farmers, who use it for bedding
for calf and cow.
100% of our solid wood waste is donated to deserving families
in the community who use it to heat their homes.
We convert our surplus boxboard into packing.
Made right here.
Unlike other vendors, we don’t operate a 10,000 mile supply chain
with the Asian woodworking industry. 98% of what we sell is made
right here in our Vermont woodshop. Your purchase helps provide
great local jobs for the skilled craftspeople who live in this
very rural part of our nation. More than 25 local families prosper
when you purchase from tablelegs.com.
