Here’s a unique way to spend a few hours – wood-steaming, hand planing, wood carving, and forging – working together in the WRLF and the Williamstown Historical Museum’s effort to restore an antique horse-drawn work sled donated to the WRLF by long-time Williamstown resident Henry Flynt.  These sleds were used to bring logs, firewood, and sap collection barrels out of the woods in the winter and are an important part of our local heritage.

The WRLF has scheduled monthly workdays on Saturdays from 9:30 to 12:30.  Remaining winter and spring workdays are March 14, and April 11. Once the weather improves we can schedule other days where we can work outside.
