Eugene, Oregon area wood attractions


Greetings. I will be in Eugene Oregon later this month. Mainly to work on my daughters recently purchased home. While there, it would be nice to visit any interesting woodworking establishments, artesian woodworking exhibits, or local hardwood saw mills that sell to hobbyists. Anyone in the Eugene area have any suggestions? Will have transportation so driving a bit wouldn't be a problem. Thanks, Mike

Tree Products over on Irving sells hardwood, and Crosscut Hardwoods recently (well, within the last ten years anyway) opened up a store here. The Eugene Planing Mill shut down a while back, with REI and a few other specialty stores filling up the empty spaces, but the cylone is still there. There's a place called, "Woodcraft" that sells high-end fancy-schmancy tools and whatnot if that's your sort of thing. There's a guy out Hwy 58 near Pleasant Hill that does wood carvings (bears and whatnot) with softwoods; you can't miss it as you drive by, and if you want to get out of town, Cottage Grove has some old logging equipment in their museum. I hear there are conifer forests around this area as well. ;)

Hi Mike, Ditto to what has been said so far. Kennedy Woods has moved to the Eugene area. I know of a one cutter that has a good section of different woods. Oct 22 & 23 the carving club is having a show here in Eugene. Give me email back and I will give you a ph # the get in touch with me when you are here and I can direct you around.

Also, there is Shorty Campbel in Mapleton (30 miles west), Curley Burley in Cottage Grove, Goby Walnut in Albany(about 40 miles north) and a few others, it depends on what you want, and of course, how much you want to spend. You can call me, or e-mail me also. Reed Gray aka robo hippy
