Warner Woods West is Closed

I just heard a few weeks ago and confirmed with owner Lloyd Warner that he’s closed up the shop as of January 1st of this year. Long time ship modeler and, until a couple years ago, long time director of the Nautical Research Guild, Lloyd has operated Warner Woods West.

The company sold beautifully made blocks and woods of all varieties when he operated from his home in Souther California. After he relocated to Utah, he discontinued wood sales and concentrated on selling the quality blocks and linen rigging line.

Long time customer might still be able to purchase some of his remaining stock from him, but he’s not producing anything new. It’s sad to see the business close, but nice to know that he’s still around and we may see him at the NRG conference in San Diego this Fall.
