Beautiful handcrafted wood products
Jun 2019 • Couples
This store has some very beautiful hand made wood products. Make sure that you see the boxes that are curved - they are truly works of art. Lots of other items are available at a fair price. The owner enjoys talking about his craft and how the various pieces are made and what wood is used. An interesting stop on the Cabot Trail.

Beautiful handmade wood products

The craftsmanship of the products is incredible and reasonably priced. The owner is friendly and enthusiastic about not only the products he makes but of all the products in the store.

Superb Woodworking
Aug 2017 • Couples
My husband and I so enjoyed our stop at the Woodsmiths Studio. The shop is small but full of beautifully handcrafted pieces of art - vases, bowls, storage boxes, clocks, and so much more. This is one place we wished we had more money to spend! It was so cool to see the actual woodworking shop behind the retail area and smell the aroma of wood. One of the things that made this place so special was our conversation with the owner, Robert Evans. Because it was a slow time of the year we were the only customers in the store so we had plenty of time to hear how Robert came to Nova Scotia to begin this business. He's quite the storyteller - so delightful. He also explained how some of the pieces are made which was fascinating.

One other unexpected bonus besides finding some amazing handcrafts to bring home was that Robert gave us a great tip about checking out Middle Head Trail, which I'm sure we would have missed if he didn't tell us about it. That hike was one of the coolest things we did while in Nova Scotia. Make plans to stop at Woodsmiths Studio (and Middle Head Trail) on your trip around the Cape.

This shop has a variety of items created by several artists. They have everything from bird sculptures to clocks to wooden games. It was fun to look around the showroom.

Very Good Products

We were very impressed by the unique designs available. From bowls, animals, containers, and vases all made of wood. Definitely worth the stop if on the Cabot Trail.

Wood in the air
Sep 2016
This shop has items from several woodsmiths. The shop smells like fresh cut wood when you walk in. I purchased a wooden bowl that I just love. The clerk/woodsmith was very friendly and told me about the piece that I purchased. I am so happy that I stopped in to check them out.

Worth a quick look.

A nice selection of wood pieces at very reasonable prices. If you are driving the Cabot Trail, and stopping for lunch across the street at the Clucking Hen, it is worth a quick look.

Great find for wood stuff
Jul 2016 • Couples
We probably lingered the longest at the Woodsmiths Studio than any other artisan stores. They had a good selection of wood works, reasonably priced. We later saw similar wood works in Boston that was priced twice as much, and the quality wasn't superior.

Neat Shop, Gorgeous Work!
Jun 2016 • Family
This very neat woodshop smells heavenly when you walk in. The bouquet of the raw wood cuttings is really nice. The carver is friendly and we had a nice chat. His work is absolutely beautiful. But most of his stuff is a tad large for travelers visiting by plane. Unless you left yourself some extra space in your luggage.

So appreciate your description of our shop and pictures. You are correct in mentioning smaller items. Many customers purchase clocks or smaller cutting boards. Also, we are currently in the process of making smaller boxes. Thanks for suggestion -Bob.

Very nice shop!

Happened upon this while driving the Cape Breton Trail. Enjoyed the nicely made and cheaply priced wood products immensely. Friendly staff, and you actually see into the shop from the showroom. An enjoyable short stop.
