We make lobster pot buoys out of Maine white cedar – just like Maine lobstermen used to use before using Styrofoam today.

Each buoy starts as an 8 foot cedar pole. It is then cut into “blanks” (8 and 12 inch lengths) and allowed to dry for a couple of weeks. They are then shaped into the buoy shape and allowed to dry a bit longer. A wood tail is then inserted in the butt of the buoy. The buoy is then sanded, primed and sanded again. It is now ready to design and paint.

Custom orders are always welcomed. Just let us know what you are looking for and we will see what we can do.

Maine Wooden Buoys can be found at a wide variety of retailers and on-line stores. A complete list can be found on our website,

We have a wide variety of colors available – several shades of blues, reds, greens, yellows – just about any color you may want. We are also able to individualize buoys. A vinyl cutter is used to put on just about any letters/numbers/characters in a rainbow of colors that can be cut.
