Community

As Tradern’s owners, we take great pride in every one of our woodworking projects, and as skilled tradesmen and business owners, we have an enormous sense of satisfaction when our designed projects come to life as finished pieces of work. We strive to create things that will outlive us and could only be fairly judged by our future peers, just as we often reflect and admire the fine craftsmanship of woodworking generations that came before us.

Just as we contribute our very best to our trade, we also believe it is important to do so in our community. Here are a few examples of projects wherein Tradern has participated and helped those who are not as fortunate as ourselves.

katrinaMississippi, December 2007: A 7-person Tradern crew volunteered with local charity Wayland to Waveland and traveled to Mississippi to support the rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Katrina. Our crew proudly spent a week working on interior finish carpentry and installing cabinets to help build 6 houses for Hurricane Katrina families in need of permanent housing. This was an amazing, rewarding, and memorable experience for everyone.

LodgeNew Hampshire, October 2008: The Tradern crew traveled north to help build a new lodge for The Adaptive Skier Program at Loon Mountain. These new facilities will help physically challenged skiers and coaches for years to come.

MarathonBoston, April 2009: Paul Glynn ran the Boston Marathon and raised $10,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Jimmy Fund.
