Of Maine Wood is a small family business operating from an old ocean side farmstead on the rugged coast of Blue Hill, Maine. We started making things out of wood because we feel there is a special quality to the trees from our area.
WHAT MAKE MAINE WOOD UNIQUE?
Over eons, repeated ice ages scoured to
bedrock much of New England. With their
relentless movement, glaciers, often building to over one mile in thickness, carried before them all soils and living things. As they retreated, life reestablished a foothold on the violated landscape, finding only the barest of soil environments to work with. But flora and fauna found a way to adapt and flourish in this harsh setting.
The wood from our area wonderfully displays this vitality in its figure, grain pattern and coloration. Celebrate with us, through your use and appreciation of these boards, the life of this tree.
