At Coyote Woodshop, Andrew Barclay sawing a large fir beam for the new dairy barn at Heyday Farm.

But all is not well at Coyote. Owner, David Kotz told me, “It would be a shame to shut down this business that provides jobs for islanders making high quality lumber from trees grown right here on the island. The lumber goes into projects that benefit the community, like at IslandWood or Waypoint Park as well as myriad other projects in homes throughout the island.”
