Jack R. Williams Toboggan Chute, Camden, ME

“It’ll be over in nine seconds,” says Stuart Young, operator at the toboggan chute. It’s a statement that brings little comfort as our toboggan is tipped from a horizontal loading position onto the near vertical starting pitch of a 400-foot wooden toboggan run.

Little Lyford Pond Camps | Rustic Retreat

It’s five hours from Boston, Massachusetts, to Greenville, Maine, the last town en route to our destination, and it’s still another hour beyond there — on broken paved roads and dirt logging trails — to Little Lyford Pond Camps. These narrow byways are rutted and full of potholes. On the better sections, you might try […]

Fine Art That Floats

“Boats are designed to work best in the waters of the designer,” says boatbuilder Nick Schade. “The coastline from Long Island Sound all the way up the coast of Maine is wonderful paddling.” Our favorite for these waters is his 18-foot Night Heron kayak. It handles well in rough water such as wind chop and […]

Let the Light Shine

How’s this for amazing? Peter Bloch of New London, New Hampshire, takes 200-pound chunks of local aspen wood and turns them into lampshades up to 20 inches in width that weigh less than a pound. “I actually think they are more durable than almost any other kind of lampshade, because they are hard and flexible,” […]

Shipbuilder to Dream Builder

Former shipbuilder Brad Story is inspired by the birds of the salt marshes near his studio and home in Essex, Massachusetts. His Aerodreams wood sculptures, many of which are designed to be hung, have a wingspan of 4 to 7 feet. “Most pieces are figurative, representational, and/or realistic — in the sense that they resemble […]
