Our website is not sophisticated enough to calculate actual shipping costs, add tax when required and offer discounts for multiple items so using the "Buy Now" buttons tend to be higher.
To get the lowest price, copy the description of the item and click the "Best Price" link. Fill in the order form and we will calculate the best possible price and then send you a PayPal Invoice by email.
Once you receive the invoice email, simply click the "Buy Now" button in the email to complete the transaction. You can pay by
Absolutely! We understand that buying things online is hard. I want to hold the item, feel it in my hands and look at it from every angle. We do our best to show as much detail in the photos as possible but if you want a higher resolution photo please e-mail us.
When I cut away background material to leave raised letters, I frequently leave small random round peaks. When they are coated with a glossy coating they resemble the crystal points inside a geode - hence the name. I discovered this beautiful technique quite by accident.
We are currently supporting three very solid ministries listed on the "Supported Ministries" page. To specify which ministry receives the funds from your purchase, please send me an e-mail. My address is Richard@HisWordInWood.com.
Yes. When you return the carving we will issue you a credit that you can apply to another purchase. The exception to this would be carvings that are customized with names or dates which could not be resold.
Yes Indeed! I love the process of creating these carvings and take numerous photos of them at all stages of their creation. If you would like a copy of these photos just ask and I'll be happy to email them to you.
Yes. While I use power tools to make them, each one is individually carved, signed and dated. A typical carving takes from 5 to 15 working hours to complete. For more detail about how they are made, take a loook at the "Plans and Tutorials" page which even has vidoe lessons.
His Word In Wood exists solely to raise funds for missions. Unfortunately, the tax man wants a piece of the action too. However, every dime that doesn't go to shipping or the Tax Man goes to these wonderful ministries. We make sure nothing sticks to our hands!
I try to package shipments very well but sometimes things still get damaged. All shipments are insured so email me right away and send me photos of the packaging and the damage to the carving. Please keep the packaging as the carriers will not honor claims with out it. Depending on the damage I may repair it or make a new carving.
Occassionally I do. Our folding tables are examples. However, His Word In Wood is a ministry rather than a business. Our sole purpose for exisitng is to encourage and strengthen the body of Christ and to share the good news of His Plan of Salvation throughout the world. Jesus is my Lord and Savior and thus I will not carve anything which dishonors Him or denies the truth of His Word, the Bible.
Nick's First CarvingOne evening my seven year old grandson announced that he wanted to make a carving.
What kind of carving Nick?
A star like you make Papa!
My teacher is sick and going into the hospital and
I want to make something special to encourage her.
Why a Star of David?
Because she is a star! And I want a cross on it too!
Because she loves Jesus as much as you do Papa!
Wow! What greater joy could a man have than to see his grandson following in his footsteps! I am so thankful that my grandfather passed on his love of the Lord to me!
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
