Hand-made WAM products

Intricate model canoes of all sizes; elegant but strong coconut graters; historic stick charts … all these and more can be found in the WAM Catalog.
All the products are hand-made by the carpentry instructors and the trainees. All profits go back into the WAM program, making it a win-win situation for you and for WAM.
