"Free factory Tours" drew me. We were doing a 14-day trip with 2 kids, so of course I was looking for free, fun stuff. You enter this small showroom and a very nice person offers you free coffee and popcorn. You sit and watch a video about how myrtle wood is processed. It's very interesting and thorough. Then you step... More

KCwoman, thanks for visiting our factory! Sorry there wasn't much to see in the factory we have several rooms upstairs that we just aren't able to show on the tour. The non-profit who owns us is Star of Hope and we support developmentally disabled persons in the community. I hope that if you come back to Oregon you'll let me... More

If you are looking for great gifts this is the place for you. They start you off with a movie about the "making" of Myrtlewood and then they send you off on a tour of the factory. The workers stop and tell you what they are working on and answer any questions. Then you may purchase anything Myrtlewood your hearts... More

Self-guided tour of the in-house woodworking shop. See where and how the Myrtlewood souvenirs are made.

We have been to Coos Bay many times over the years but never stopped at this Myrtlewood Factory. You can take the free tour which starts you off with a short 10 minutes video that tells you all you need to know about Myrtlewood, then do a self guided tour thru the factory. There were only two employees working in... More

We stopped in to get ideas on making myrtlewood bowls. As my husband is into wood crafting after retirement. The tour of their shop was very interesting, we got lots of ideas and learned new things. The tour was free. I enjoyed looking at all the different things made from myrtlewood and bought jewelry, kitchen items plus a nice jacket... More

A nice shop, not ready for our crowd of 20, but we were patient and the one lady on duty worked as fast as she could! We bought myrtle wood bowls, cutting boards, sweatshirts, jewelery, ice cream and fudge - and probably more. The shop was not in operation at the time we were there, but you could get a... More

Apparently this is where a lot of things in the giftshops are made. I didn't get to see the master woodcrafter in his workshop when I went, but when the person is there creating items, you can watch him work. When he is not there, you can watch a video of the magic behind the scenes. They have some really... More

This gift shop/production facility offers free tours of their workshop. We stopped here around 3:00 in the afternoon and not much was going on in the workshop tour area. There was only one person working and he was using a sander to finish some myrtlewood plates. He was super friendly, however, and demonstrated to us the steps he goes through... More

Take some time to check out this unique store. The myrtlewood products range in price from very reasonable to a little more spendy, but are unique and beautiful. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and when we were there had some free popcorn! The store has more than just the wood - you can find information, clothing, postcards, and other... More
