a new blog for folks interested in 17th-century woodworking


to the sea


My friends at Plimoth Plantation have started a dedicated blog about the various carpentry works they do. I have worked parallel to that department since 1994, and what they do is amazing – hewing, pitsawing, clapboards, thatching, and more… the faces have changed over the years, with a few exceptions, but the work goes on.

You might want to look it over, and subscribe if inclined. I have always wanted to feature their work here, and now I don’t have to.  there’s a couple of posts so far, and if you write to them, that will encourage them to continue…nudge, nudge.

Here’s the link:


Keep ’em coming guys.
