Gallery & Store

Within our Gallery and Store are a collection of work created by talented craftspeople, many of whom were trained at the School. Here, you’ll see the diversity of skills and our dedication to quality. In addition to these pieces, we sell specialized hand tools (Starrett measuring tools, Clifton planes, Hock knives, and more), blank journals, marbled paper, and NBSS-branded items as well.

Visit Our Gallery

In our Gallery, we showcase a range of handmade items, from leather-bound books and fine jewelry to well-crafted furniture and items for the home. Rotating displays help you learn about the history, materials, and the hand processes each artisan uses to create their pieces, from furniture to buildings, locks to books.

Our Preservation Carpentry and Carpentry students hand build several “studio-sheds” each year as part of their training. They are beautifully crafted and built to last, whether you plan to use as decorative storage to accent your property, or as backyard workplace for art, craft, woodworking, or other ventures.

Style 1: Preservation Carpentry
