Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event Feb. 27-28

We are exciting to announce that Lie-Neilsen will be here at Goosebay Sawmill and Lumber on Feb.27-28th. They will be demonstrating all of their hand tools for any one who wants to attend. There is no charge for admission.

Lie-Neilsen’s traveling events give you the chance to try their full line of tools and learn techniques directly from their staff. These events are unique in the philosophy behind them and the experiences at each one. Their focus is to promote woodworking education, hands-on skill building, and a spirit of collaboration.

Lie-Neilsen makes over 100 types of planes, saws, spokeshaves, chisels, floats and more. They have improved and refined designs, and use better materials like Ductile Iron and Manganese Bronze for castings and cryogenically treated A-2 Tool Steel for the blades. Their plane blades are much thicker than those of any other production planes.

Please join us in February to see what makes these tools so great.lie-nielsen

The BIg Trees Book

Author and wooden boat builder Kevin Martin brings you through the woods and into some cities all over New Hampshire to find these impressive living parts of our landscape. Some of the hikes include the state’s largest northern white cedars in Clarksville that have been marked by bears for generations and the horse chestnut in Portsmouth that was planted by a signer of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. New Hampshire has 7 national champion Big Trees and a few of those are also shown.

Big Trees of New Hampshire directs you on 28 hikes to find 85 of the largest trees that are on public land or in the cities where the public can see them up close. 4th generation NH native and outdoorsman Kevin Martin shares stories of big trees around the state, along with information about their history, management and caretaking. Kevin lives in Epping, NH.

New! Paulownia Marine Plywood


We are now an east coast dealer of 2.7mm Paulownia Marine plywood. Paulownia is an extremely light weight wood, but it is also very strong. That is why it is very popular for building surfboards. Before now, you could only buy Paulownia as lumber or veneer. We are excited to now have the plywood as well. It is not only great for surfboards, but it can be used for any marine or outdoor uses. If you want to build a boat and keep the weight down, then this is the plywood to use. Please contact us if you have any questions. Pricing is $59.99 a sheet (4×8). http://goosebaylumber.net/SpeciesSpecs/MarinePlywood.html
