Factory Tour · Tour
We pride ourselves on authenticity. From our blacksmith shop to our historic craftsman's apothecary, from the world's largest collection of molder knives to our wide assortment of hand planes, Blue Ox is a craftsman's paradise presided over by a true craftsman. With over forty years of experience, Eric has become a master communicator in the delicate language of wood and he shares his skills at our living history park.


See America's frontier past come alive. Take one of our tours and watch our craftsmen use antique machinery of the 1800's and early 1900's to do custom woodworking, restoration, print and bind books, or mix stains and varnishes. Bring a group and take part in one of our hands-on workshops where you can blacksmith a nail or create your own ceramic tile.
