Welcome to our website!

Welcome to my workshop, where I personally hand make and hand finish every wooden article that leaves this shop. I pay very special attention to the use of non-toxic finishes and other safety issues. In particular, none of the items meant for use by children have any small loose parts and the stools are supplied with non-slip cork pads on the feet.

Because everything is handmade, there may be variations from one item to the next. These variations will be minor and will in no way affect the function or life of any article. There may also be slight color variations from one piece to another. This is attributable to variations in the stains or varnishes and in the grain and coloring of the wood. Wood is a highly variable raw material and that is what gives most wooden objects so much appeal !

Our products make wonderful gifts for children of all ages celebrating an important personal life event; First Holy Communion, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, nursery school graduation, high school or college graduation, first job, etc. We also have gifts for adults that can serve as a wonderful remembrance at birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or as holiday gifts. Or maybe an adult in your life would appreciate a stool to more easily reach the top shelf (with their name on it too)!

Made in the U.S.A.

We would like to emphasize that we continue to ensure that our products contain no lead or other toxic substances and there are no loose parts on any of our products for children. Everything we make is made here in Massachusetts with care and attention to safety and suitability for the end user.

Almost 3 years ago, we added to our products a new taller version version of our popular Large Nativity Stables that is perfect for the tallest Nativity figurines. It can be purchased in natural pine (no finish) or we can pre-stain it for you at a nominal cost. Also new last year was an accessory for the Nativity Stables; a lighting kit to impart a warm soft glow to the creche scene. Check this out on the Nativity Stable page also.    

Shipping Charge September Update!!

Our latest review of shipping fees has shown many changes in what we are being charged, mostly upward. We have adjusted some of our charges; a few items have been reduced but most have been increased slightly. It is still more economical to ship 2 in 1 box for all of our items except for the Doll Cradle. You can be sure that we will continue to look for the most advantageous rates and we will continue to select the shipper that offers the best rates for weight and distance. We will continue to watch the rates and make adjustments as necessary.
