Yes folks, the long awaited final Hebron Maple Festival post has arrived. I apologize for the delay, but along with some other stuff getting in the way, this post has more pictures to it, coupled with five videos. Editing them didn’t take too long, but you know, uploading and all that..enough with the excuses.
Our last stop during the Hebron Maple Festival this past weekend was at a nice place called Country Carpenters. Now, just to let you know, I’ve been driving by this establishment for just about five years. It’s butt up against the pellet place and close to town, but alas, I’ve never had a reason to visit. Well, until this past weekend.
Country Carpenters is a very nice outfit. It’s probably one of the few remaining “real” carpentry companies out there. They build post and beam structures that are really top notch. I had a chance to get up close and was impressed. Take a look at their website – look at what they do and realize what a rarity they are.
There were a few features at Country Carpenters this past Sunday. There was blacksmithing, wood turning, candle dipping, carving, woodworking and more. We toured the buildings and watched the demonstrations. Actually, after visiting this event, I’m not sure what I liked the best – this or the sugar houses.
I’m going to post the pictures and video below. Instead of me rambling on and on about what happened, you can simply see for yourself. Enjoy.
