Bob Reitmeyer, Supplier of Wood Crafts to Scouts

Supplying Camps and Carvers since 1984

GOING OUT OF BUSINESS



After nearly 40 years of supplying wood blanks to Boy Scout camps and individual carvers across the country and throughout the world, it's time to put down my carving knife. I've enjoyed every minute of teaching carving and introducing this wonderful past-time to children and adults alike. Thanks for the support and encouragement over the years.

I'll continue to sell the remaining stock I have on hand, but please note that quantities are limited, and we're mostly down to knives and other carving accessories, available below. While I'll try to pull items that are no longer available, if you place an order that I can't completely fill, then I'll let you know and offer either a substitution or a refund. Thank you for understanding.
