The Milder Butcher Block table was awarded Gold Distinction as part of the 2019 Modern Library Awards, a product competition judged by Librarians who have specified our products for their libraries. Across the nation, libraries are fast becoming STEM and Maker-focused, offering their communities programming to inspire and empower kids and adults alike to make, create and learn new skills.
Re-designed for a shop and maker environment, our Maker Series offers a robust reboot of the Milder Furniture System. The work tables boast a 1.5″ thick maple butcher block top that can take all the abuse as well as the love, from clamps, to fabric patterns and laptops. Tables can be easily moved or ganged to support a variety of studio and classroom activities. A range of sizes are available.
The Maker Series includes a mobile storage partition, tool carts, and the butcher block tables. We design with durability in mind. The pipe base with cross-bars and diagonal struts create a strong self-supporting base that the butcher block top is clipped onto. The butcher block top can be rejuvenated through annual sanding and oiling (instead of using lacquer). Table aprons are made of pre-finished birch ply and are available in a variety of colors as well as HPL laminate. Aprons shown here in grey pre-finished birch ply.
The melamine film-faced plywood is available in a variety of colors including: natural (clear), red, blue, yellow, blue, and dark brown. High pressure laminate is also available. As always, customization is our strength, and we can build to your preferred specifications.

The renowned art and design university offers its students learning environments that are responsive to variety of teaching methodologies. Some departments encourage group work by providing a open plan studio setting with furniture that is easily reconfigured to suit different modalities. To that end, the Critical Studies Department relies on our T-partitions (mobile whiteboards), mobile storage partition units, and worktables.
Other programs, for example illustration and graphic design, foster individual development, and need to provide their students with private work spaces.
Milder Office also furnished office spaces for MICA faculty and administrators.
