The time for the market has been changed from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. to 12 noon – 4 p.m.

Find my custom crosses, and Easter-themed carvings in lucky Booth #9

You can find me at Booth #9 where I’ll be selling my custom crosses and Easter-themed woodcarvings.

Custom crosses are better than cookie-cutter big-box store options

On-site, there will be many options for custom crosses to choose from. This includes finishes, bindings, and the wood each cross is made with. Your options include: 

  • Maple
  • Oak
  • Pine (Balsam Fir) 

Cross Reverence

All timber is sourced from family land deep in the woods of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; less than 15 miles from Lake Superior. Likewise, each piece of wood is carefully chosen based on its size, quality, and character. 

A great deal of reverence is poured into the design and assembly of every cross. 

Each is hand-crafted to create a unique piece that stands out from standard big box-store plank wood or hard-plastic crosses. Custom Crosses Hero Image

The crosses are in the following sizes: 

  • 6″ rearview mirror sizes–$30
  • 8″ wall crosses–$40
  • 10″ wall crosses–$50
  • 12″ wall crosses–$60
  • Larger than 12 inches–Depends on the size, but the largest available includes a 22″ balsam fir and 14″-20″ maple and oak crosses.

Great gifts

These crosses make great gifts for: 

  • Baptisms
  • Christenings
  • Coworkers
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Pastors, missionaries, and ministers
  • Prayer group members
  • Teachers
  • Yourself

Easter-themed woodcarvings

During this event, I also will offer basswood carvings of:

  • Easter Bunny hutch front doors 
  • Colorful hand-carved basswood carrots to use as Easter dinner table place markers. (Sets of 4–$30 and 6 carrots–$35)
  • The Easter Bunny in 4 and 6 inched form

Don’t be surprised if you find a few gnomes and mushroom houses, too!

Like the crosses, all woodcarvings are perfect for Easter as decor or gifts.

‘The Timberlander’

Hello, I’m Donald J. 

I refer to myself as “The Timberlander” because I love off-grid living and woodworking.

My Great Pyrenees, Maycee, and I enjoy spending our time in the woods of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

In the UP, I craft, make, grow, run, carve, and generate:

  • Custom crosses
  • Timber frame shelters
  • A garden
  • My water
  • Basswood figurines and ornaments
  • My own power

Check out my crafts for sale in The Timberlander’s Treasures.
