Cazenovia Art Trail - Cazenovia Cut Block

On September 30th and October 1st join us for one of our favorite annual events -- The Cazenovia Art Trail! We are so blessed to live in a community that supports and celebrates artists for their contributions to culture! This weekend we are able to peek behind the curtain and stop into their studios (where all the magic happens!) To get all the details about the weekend, visit and for a downloadable copy of the map, visit

One of many featured artist and craftsman of the weekend is Cazenovia Cut Block!

Cazenovia Cut Block started out as a hobby…then a passion…and now a business. Tim Hughes started playing around in his garage with some woodworking tools and slowly added more and more to his collection. Friends would ask him to help create pieces for them, or he would make pieces to give as gifts. Soon, with the help of family, Tim turned this into a thriving business.

Cazenovia Cut Block has gone through many changes over the past 14 years. Originally called simply – Caretaker’s Furnishings, the company was named after the home Tim shared with his wife Jennifer. It had been the home to Tim’s grandparents who were the caretakers for Notleymere Cottage, an estate across the road. While this was a sentimental name for Tim, it did not resonate with customers. Tim changed the name to Cazenovia Cut Block to reflect the products being produced. This name change has helped the business explode.

Cazenovia Cut Block was first launched at the Farmer’s Market in Cazenovia, New York. There was an immediate buzz about the booth. Soon, customers started calling in the middle of the week to order items for pick-up at the market. We soon started to receive orders for an expanded offering. Customers were requesting custom countertops, tables, and butcher block islands. Customers can view our entire inventory and purchase what we have in stock, or they can make a request for a custom piece. Our products make great gifts or are a nice addition to your own home.

Cazenovia Cut Block is proud to say that our products are 100% made in America. Every product is hand-crafted in Cazenovia, and all of our wood is native to New York State. We are also proud to be a family business. We strive to personally take care of each and every customer. Thank you all for supporting our small, family business!
