Hand Planes & Wireless Routers

Leave the 21st century behind to step back in time to an era before electricity when you enter the 187 year-old Amos Blanchard Barn.  Breathe in the atmosphere of this unique place.  Listen to the hum of a handsaw cutting though air-dried lumber and the sound of a sharp plane shaving curls of wood from a board.  Pick up a 19th century plane or router and try your hand at traditional woodworking.  Feel the warmth of the wooden tools and the satisfaction of learning an old “new” skill.
