The Wood Shop

Welcome to our shop! We produce custom wooden items to serve our Orthodox Christian community in the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio area. We are a husband and wife team that specialize in traditional coffins, simple hand crosses for burial, Russian Orthodox vestment hangers, cedar hope chests, lecterns, and kiots (icon frames). The work we do is rustic in nature allowing the natural beauty of the wood to be ornate in itself. We have some basic dimensions of our items such as the hand crosses, hangers, and coffins. However, each order is custom and the dimensions can be changed as needed. We also accept commission work on custom items, visit us on our contact page for details on how to reach out to us with your design and we will be happy to work with you if it is something within our range of ability! To order please fill out the contact form below or head to our contact page for email and number, we will get back in touch with you within 24 hrs. with an invoice or estimate! Thank you for visiting our shop!


Our coffins are made of solid pine or cedar wood, lined with organic cotton, with your choice of rope or cast iron handles, and cross on the lid. We also offer painted Trisagion Prayer. Our panels are put together in the shop. We also offer a ‘bare bones’ option with no lining or Trisagion. Each coffin comes with a hand cross.
