Robert Frost

A Unique Opportunity to Own a
Piece of New England History

"Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though."

These words, from Robert Frost's famous poem, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, were crafted in 1922 at his residence in Shaftsbury, VT, a 30 minute drive from my workshop. In the same time period Frost planted more than 1,000 red pine seedlings on his land as part of a soil conservation program inspired by his friend, Dorothy Canfield Fisher.

Robert Frost

robertfrostNow, almost a century later, Robert Frost stands as one of our nation's most enduring poets, and this thriving grove of beautiful red pine still stands with the exception of two trees which were harvested, sawn into boards, and air-dried. Some of this wood was used to build two replica tables from a design passed down through the Frost family since the 1930's. One table remains in the Robert Frost Stone House Museum in Shaftsbury, and mine was sold as a fundraiser for the Museum.

The Museum's original intent was to designate the remaining downed wood for replica tables, but they decided that was too limiting and not in keeping with the spirit of inspiration and exploration Frost would have preferred. Instead, the Museum has given me permission to offer this very special wood to you along with the freedom to construct virtually anything that suits your fancy. A Robert Frost bookcase for your poetry collection? A keepsake box for heirloom treasures? The possibilities are endless.

Best of all, 30% of all sales will be donated directly to the Robert Frost Stone House Museum, so by owning a piece of history, you're also helping to preserve it!

My supply of this special wood is very limited, so if you are interested in having a piece made, I invite you to contact me at (802) 293-5195 or email me to discuss your ideas before the wood is. . . history!
