The woodshop at Moravian Manor Communities is a favorite spot for our resident craftsmen, retired from a wide range of careers. Over the years, they have created some pretty amazing things, some of which can be seen around campus including a communion table, wooden cross in the chapel, and landscaping structures. Here, they enjoy not only creating beautiful pieces of work, but also building friendships as well. They carry on the memory of Don Jones, who established the woodshop with several pieces of equipment he brought with him when he moved to Moravian Manor Communities.

Just recently, the woodshop moved from the Founders Campus to its new home on the Warwick Woodlands campus our Operations Center.
