We were very impressed by the unique designs available. From bowls, animals, containers, and vases all made of wood. Definitely worth the stop if on the Cabot Trail.

This shop has items from several woodsmiths. The shop smells like fresh cut wood when you walk in. I purchased a wooden bowl that I just love. The clerk/woodsmith was very friendly and told me about the piece that I purchased. I am so happy...More

A nice selection of wood pieces at very reasonable prices. If you are driving the Cabot Trail, and stopping for lunch across the street at the Clucking Hen, it is worth a quick look.

We probably lingered the longest at the Woodsmiths Studio than any other artisan stores. They had a good selection of wood works, reasonably priced. We later saw similar wood works in Boston that was priced twice as much, and the quality wasn't superior.

This very neat woodshop smells heavenly when you walk in. The bouquet of the raw wood cuttings is really nice. The carver is friendly and we had a nice chat. His work is absolutely beautiful. But most of his stuff is a tad large for...More

So appreciate your description of our shop and pictures. You are correct in mentioning smaller items. Many customers purchase clocks or smaller cutting boards. Also, we are currently in the process of making smaller boxes. Thanks for suggestion -Bob.

Happened upon this while driving the Cape Breton Trail. Enjoyed the nicely made and cheaply priced wood products immensely. Friendly staff, and you actually see into the shop from the showroom. An enjoyable short stop.

Great variety of wood pieces, art. Warm welcomed. Must visit. It goes from little candle handlers to jewelrie boxes to bread cutting wood pieces. Nice salad bowls and utensils.

This is a great little shop. We often stop at the Clucking Hen (across the road) and come up here to browse. They have an adult-sized rocking horse on the deck that is always a hit. We have a smaller version for our children that...More
