200 Years of Vermont Craftsmanship
For more than 200 years, Vermonters have been working with wood. With skills passed down from generation to generation, Vermont's woodworkers have built an international reputation for craftsmanship, attention to detail, and exquisite design that's unmatched. From the careful selection of the finest woods through shaping and joinery to final finish, every step in crafting each piece relies on traditions that endure today. Some work exclusively with hand tools, reproducing or interpreting traditional designs and products or creating imaginative, unique items. Others use state-of-the-art computers, laser woodcutters, and automatic routers. The motivation for many contemporary woodworkers comes from living in a beautiful, peaceful, natural environment.
