An Old-Fashioned Outlet Store
We are an old-fashioned outlet store, not too far from Concord, NH. Here you will find a large selection of wood bowls, cutting and carving boards and hard-to-find kitchen utensils. Each is made by one of Paul's posse wood workers, working by hand with trees cut down in the northern forest or salvaged from nearby -- using hand tools - and Yankee ingenuity -- with old-fashioned techniques handed down from generation to generation.

Our wide variety is handmade by local craftspeople, artisans and farmers, and we also carry a large assortment of wooden gifts made in small workshops across the USA. We have not just one but many rare woods from which to choose.
The outlet is a browser's paradise of nooks and crannies filled with hundreds of cutting boards, end-grain chopping boards and butcher blocks in different styles and shapes, along with spoons, kitchen utensils and hard-to-find kitchen specialty tools. Each gift is made from 100% American raw material, using 100% Yankee ingenuity.
You might remember or have stopped at one of these famous Vermont wood bowl-turning sites in the past: the Weston Bowl Mill, the Granville Bowl Mill or the old Woodbury Bowl Mill. We guarantee The Wood Bowl Outlet and Gift Store offers you the same tradition of exploration.
Floor displays are always changing, so if you visited the outlet at one time, we hope you’ll make another trip to Webster to see what’s new. Locals have been shopping here since the early 1900s.
