Summer Trip to
Andrew Pearce Bowls in Hartland, VT

This year, our Summer Trip took place on July 17 to Andrew Pearce Bowls.

Andrew Pearce has been making wooden bowls since setting up his shop about 6 years ago not too far from his father’s Simon Pearce handmade glass shop in Quechee, VT. Andrew’s wooden bowls are made from locally sourced cherry and black walnut logs. We saw the entire operation from coring to finishing.


Tuckaway Timber
Labor day wood sale!

Saturday, August 31
Lyme, NH

This may well be the last day we are open to the public as we are presently negotiating a wholesale liquidation of all lumber remaining after Saturday. Hope to see you then.

Thank you, David Mather
