Tools wanted for benefit sale at Carpenter’s Boat Shop

Pemaquid’s Carpenter’s Boat Shop is looking for woodworking tools, power tools, or hand tools that are no longer in use. The boat shop is hosting a massive tool sale on Saturday, August 28 to benefit its apprenticeship program. Donated tools must be in good working order. Tools requiring repair cannot be accepted.

Any carpenter, carpenter, builder – amateur or professional – should mark the day of the big sale – from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 28 at the Carpenter’s Boat Shop, 440 Old County Road in Pemaquid.

Every fall and spring, apprentices come to the boat shop for four months of living in a caring and thoughtful community; learn woodworking, boat building and restoration; and serve the whole community. Apprentices do not pay for their experience, but income from the boats they build and restore contributes to program costs. In addition, a large part of the Boat Shop’s budget comes from the generous support of many donors and occasionally volunteers organize fundraisers. Selling tools is one such fundraiser.

To donate tools, please call Mike Stevens at 677-2850 to arrange a time to drop them off or arrange for door-to-door pickup by Boat Shop volunteers. They will be collecting donations by August 14.

The Carpenter’s Boat Shop is a 501(c)(3) organization and tool donations are tax deductible. The Boat Shop appreciates your support.
