Tour of Vermont Hardwoods 
Chester, Vermont


 Download our Vermont Forest Heritage Trail woodshop tour guide and map

Vermont is home to a host of woodcrafters and fine wood product companies that welcome the public to come see them!! This guide is a highway-based driving tour that directs you to six locations where you can visit woodshops, showrooms, and a managed forest in the central region of the state. 

On January 26, 2018, at the association annual meeting, an official bylaw change occurred to change the name of the organization from the Vermont Wood Manufacturers Association to the Vermont Wood Works Council!with an associated tagline: Quality, Craftsmanship, Community This was a recommendation of the Associations marketing committee to the board of directors and then to the voting membership. We are very excited about the change and feel this represents more of our member companies and initiatives. Read Committee's full recommendation.

The association's first project is to rebuild our website so please stay tuned for updates!
