Grand Marais, MN, USA We’re on the Lookout – From Boats to Tools!
Do you have a slumbering wood canvas canoe in your garage?
Has your collection of antique (or modern!) tools reached capacity and it’s time to let go of a few?
Is that pile of cozy northern quilts just a little too tall?
Why not give your treasures a second life by donating them to the Boats to Tools Auction at North House Folk School?
A classic element of the Wooden Boat Show, the Boats to Tools Auction tells the adventure of life in the North.
Funds raised go toward brigning the international speakers, first-rate coursework, and regionally revered special events to North House’s campus in Cook County every year.
North House is accepting donations of types: • Boats of all types / Boating Supplies / Boating Books • Woodworking Tools / Woodworking Supplies / Woodworking Books • Outdoor Gear / Camping Supplies / Outdoor Related Books • Traditional Craft
The Wooden Boat Show has become a tremendously successful North Shore tradition, welcoming 2500+ visitors to campus.
Each year the festival includes a speaker series, craft demonstrations, wooden boat display, a life-sized puppet pageant and silent auction.
The Boats to Tools Auction takes place June 18 during the Wooden Boat Show.
I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk. However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts. And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
