Hey everyone,

I am planning to go on a trip in early October to Boston and then up the Maine coast to Acadia National Park. I want to make some woodworking stops along the route and would love to hear if any of you have recommendations for that region. Things I have thought of so far:

- North Bennett Street School
- Lie Nielsen
- Hull’s Cove Tool Barn
- Center for Furniture Craftsmanship

The Landing School of Wooden Boat building in Arundel/Kennebunkport sometimes does tours. They are the last surviving traditional wooden boat-building facility of coastal York County, and is somewhat famous as a traditional wooden-boat school. I have visited the place on a few occaisions when I was making deliveries, quite a place. Five minutes off Rt 1 from downtown Kennebunk.

The Thomas Moser Gallery WAS in Portland, their woodworking studio seems to move around a bit. I’ve never visited, I just know of the place but it might be worth a visit.

There is a Thos. Moser in downtown Boston. It appears to be a retail outlet, but I’ve never actually been inside.
