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. Even though we may use modern finishes and tools, we never lose sight of the time-honored principles of fine woodworking.
