At the Wooden Boat School, you can learn how to make wooden boats the old-fashioned way, using techniques and methods taught by master craftsmen. It’s an interesting place, with scents of fresh wood and glue in the air, walls heavy with tools, and workbenches covered by models and wood shavings.

You can visit the Wooden Boat School at noon and wander through the work areas while the students and instructors are on their lunch break.  You’ll find projects halted midstream, tools set down carefully, and exquisite work being done by people who care about the little details.

It’s always encouraging to see that people still care about quality, and learning, and teaching, the time-honored methods of creation.
