How did that nice logo come to be?
The logo was inspired by images I had seen of the Gokstad Ship, and was generally in my mind before I actually started the magazine. There was no greater simple example of the power, grace, and beauty of the wooden boat. —WoodenBoat Founder, Jon Wilson

Let customers speak for us
My husband was very happy to get this as a gift. Lovely colors, quality made and long sleeved! Shipping was fast and easy to order on line.
Great little bevel gauge…just the right size for those tight interior spaces
Excellent service and product
Great fit, rugged and warm.
I bought 2 copies: one for my beloved nephew, who’s starting woodworking, and one for myself, because it’s Jan Adkins. I was the illustrator for Harry Donovan’s “Arena(Entertainment) Rigging” whose author insisted he didn’t want “any art stuff” and only gave me indecipherable stick figures as examples. Book illustration is (I think) very difficult and Jan Adkins does the best I’ve ever seen.
Very well designed and roomy. Excellent craftsmanship.
Lovely - as described. WoodenBoat Store is a real treasure - just gotta love it!
The plans came by mail in a nice secure mailing tube, also the plans did arrive faster than I had expected. This is my first time making a Half Hull model and having only worked on it for about 12 hours total I’m very happy. These plans come with a two page history and instructional sheet plus multiple pages with photographs documenting various stages of the built. As mentioned earlier I’m about 12 hours in and currently carving, planing, sanding and forming the the contours of the hull. It’s been a lot of fun so far.
Delightful. A wonderful journey for young and old.
Fairly priced. Swiftly delivered. Comfortably sized. Wooden Boat continues to underpromise and overdeliver. Keep up the very fine work!
I absolutely love the schooner shirt. The shirt fits well, nice fabric, and the beautiful print of sailing schooner is wonderful. I have received many compliments on the shirt.
Excellent die cutting, great instructions, plans, building manual. Unusual subject I bought to learn how iceboats go together and work. Good educational project. I now feel like I understand how it all works, what pieces are used, how they go together. Always wanted to know...
I bought the Toad, tugboat for my sons 10th birthday. What a great little boat, we had so much fun putting it together (and figuring out what all the boat terminology meant), I’d buy another! Can’t wait to get it in some water in the spring!!
I bought two of your adorable stuffed seagulls for my two young Grandsons to keep at our house by the ocean. I’m very impressed. A very classy design, well executed. Thank You
Great warm cap that stays nice and snug and doesn’t blow away in the most blustery weather! It’s fun to meet people who know the logo. And we love the subtle red on black. Perfect hat for Northern Vermont!
