Skillfully Hand Crafted - The Maine State Prison Showroom, Thomaston, Maine

One can buy reasonably priced "Made In Maine" hand crafted wood items,including these cutting boards, sold by the people who make them.
If you are heading to the Camden area, any of the ferry terminals like Port Clyde to Monhegan, Rockland to Vinalhaven and North Haven, Lincolnville to Islesboro, or are just heading north to points Down East, go through the old shipbuilding town of Thomaston and stop at the Maine State Prison Showroom.
