I have FINALLY updated to a responsive site. This way the content will be viewable on all screen sizes automatically.

Still have a few pages to go for complete conversion, so if you see something that is not displaying correctly, let me know.

We are still leasing this home, so everything in the shop needs to be easily removed, including the electricity!

If you have questions or thoughts about the shop, feel free to
contact us.

Thanks for stopping by. Work safe.

It is with a heavy heart that, as of today, at the insistence of the Godly Play Foundation, I will no longer be able to help your faith community in doing the technical woodworking for your Godly Play stories.

I am committed, however, to using the stewardship of this shop and the gifts God has loaned me to take trees and give them new life in a new creation; and I will endeavor to help faith communities with VBS woodworking materials and other woodworking for the Church and all communities of faith.

I will continue to do woodworking at the cost of materials only. It has been suggested that I am "selling" woodworking materials. This is not true, and has never been the case. Even though I pass on to the commission the cost of materials for each request of a commission, the fact is,
every single woodworking commission that has been produced in this shop was done at a personal loss of income to me. I have never been reimbursed for the tools, sharpening, electricity, and certainly the enormous amount of time.

So why do I do this? The Garageshop woodworking ministry is a stewardship of my soul, and the gospel of Matthew (6.21) reminds me "For where your treasure is, there your heart will lie also." It has been a joy to be able to share this treasure with the children of the world.

Blessings,
—Mark
