Biesanz Woodworks reviews
Biesanz Woodworks is a true hidden gem just south of downtown Escazu. I was traveling by myself and went there to see the workshop and amazing creations. Minor, my tour guide was extremely nice and... more »
We arrived at this place with some distant thoughts of why is it that people talk about the woodwork of Biesanz. We promptly found out. This person is not only talented but he truly loves the woods..... more »
The care taken here with the wood, and the extraordinary amount of time and attention that is required for Biesanz to stay at the top of their craft is nothing less than amazing. Only naturally fallen trees are used, so their work does not contribute to deforestation. They count 5 or 6 US presidents among their customers, yet many of their products are quite reasonably priced and of wonderful quality. I highly recommend a visit to Biesanz - for an educational visit as well as beautiful wood products.
I came by myself to Biesanz Woodworks and was met by a lovely man who took me on a tour of the botanical gardens where he explained the origin and age of the trees and plants they have, as well as their medicinal uses. He introduced me to Blakie, their rescue dog which absolutely loves visitors. Then we went to the wood workshop where the beautiful pieces are made. The gentlemen working there have been there for 30 years and have achieved complete mastery over creating these pieces. I really enjoyed my time here. I would recommend it to anyone coming through San Jose.
