About

A Family Unites...

As you cross the creek and ride the gravel road past our driveway, not much will catch your eye at first glance. Perhaps a few chickens will wander closer to your tires than they should, but most of them will be too busy sneaking into our gardens to make an appearance. If not for the dense woods, you might glimpse someone harvesting a couple trees, repairing fences or taking a horse ride. If you stopped your engine to listen, you might hear the radio leaking faintly from the workshop, or the cows mooing after their dinner, or even the distant rhythmic thunder of a family band practice. Be that as it may, as you coast by, you'll most likely sigh and marvel to yourself at the simple peace and tranquility of it all. That assessment would be at least partially accurate...

Eleven members make the Lund family, including Mom and Dad. It was the mid-2000's, and as the eldest of us siblings were reaching our mid-teens, we did something pretty cool. We purchased a piece of land near Lake Superior, built a sustainable home together, and went from hobby-farming to full-time homesteading. During that time we developed our artistic abilities with wood and other mediums. What began as a side-business selling items to neighbors and friends became a full-time-job when we discovered Etsy, and ThatFamilyShop was born!

•Goals and Commitments•

 Our items are as natural and eco-friendly as we can make them. This means careful thinning of trees from our own forest, recycling wood waste as mulch and firewood, and using non-toxic paints and finishes. Instead of polyurethane, we use 100% natural Hempseed oil to coat most of our indoor items, which enhances the beauty of the grain and allows the wood to breath. When more protection against the elements is needed, we use a high-quality, low-voc urethane with a whey base.



•Members and Process•

 When you purchase one of our items, it will likely require the work of several different pairs of hands to be completed.

 Andrew would’ve answered any questions or special requests beforehand. He oversees our small but well-equipped workshop, creating many of the items.

However, if you purchased a sword, this would be Michael's domain. He would craft your weapon, and bring it to Annie who specializes in pyrography or "woodburning". After those special details were added, the sword would be finished and handed to Dad for packaging. Finally, Johnny would run your box out to the mail.

Since 2010, 'ThatFamilyShop' offers natural, genuinely handcrafted goods to grace your home, gift your friends and family, or enhance your party or event with an authentic rustic flavor. Please enjoy your browse through our shop, and share with any friends you think may enjoy it as well!

Frequently asked questions

Will my item look exactly like the listing photo?

All of our items are made-to-order, usually from rustic and wild materials. Expect your piece to be similar, but not exactly like the photos shown. We do our best to capture typical examples, but your piece may or may not feature knots, dark heartwood or small drying cracks as shown in photos.

Do you ship worldwide?

We will ship most of our smaller items internationally, but please be aware of your country's customs laws as they apply to the import of wood bark and lichen. In rare cases, you may be subject to sterilization fees for customs clearance, for which we cannot be held responsible.

Why hasn't my order shipped yet?

Please understand that most of our items are crafted upon purchase from fresh, green wood. It takes time to carefully build and dry your item, so expect to wait up to two weeks before shipment.

Can you customize an item for me?

We welcome and consider all custom order requests! We'll chat with you and work out the details of your ideas/needs in order to get you a quote as soon as possible.

How long do your signs last?

We coat our outdoor products with several applications of a high-quality, environmentally-friendly penetrating urethane. However, no wood item will last forever if exposed to the weather without periodic maintenance. You may need to recoat your item with a quality spar urethane every few years or as needed, depending on the conditions that your product is exposed to. We offer no 'guarantee' against fading or degradation.
