    absolutely thrilled with our purchase from Iron Bridge!! We will be using these for our new coffee shop Makeworth Market in Bellingham. WA and it truly warms my heart that these boards support men who are learning a new craft and do an incredible job making wood works of art! That really is what each of these little boards are. Each with its own unique graining. I couldn't be happier!
    We will definitely be back to buy more!

    I ordered this on a Wednesady and it arrived on Saturday. Very happy with that. When I ordered it, I was looking for a simple Cross for a Christmas Gift at a reasonable price. Which I can happily say I received both. The Cross is a very simple piece and is perfect. But the biggest surprise was reading the card that was with the Cross about the people that made it. This cross was handmade with local wood by people current or formerly homeless men. This is a ministry that seeking to build relationships with the homeless and poor. Wow. Just wow. I am very happy I stumbled upon this shop and encourage anyone to support them as well. For $12.00 for a nice gift nd support a great cause!

About IronBridgeWoodshop

Sales 32
On Etsy since 2017

At the Iron Bridge Woodshop, currently or formerly homeless men and others meet to craft handmade products from locally sourced wood.

The Iron Bridge Woodshop (IBW) is an extension of woodworking activities that naturally developed in the small basement shop of Robert and Leslie Littrell, the founders of Six Treasures Ministries. Six Treasures Ministries is a Lexington, Kentucky nonprofit established in 2009 that seeks to foster life-giving relationships with the homeless and poor. Over the years, many Lexington area homeless men have helped build cabinets, cutting boards, cheese trays, picture frames, key racks, table tops, and bookcases. Informal sales of cutting boards grew in 2015 and led to the creation of a broader, more structured program defined by regularly scheduled shop times staffed by volunteers.

During our weekly shop times, IBW creates opportunities for participants and volunteers to build mutually positive relationships in the context of creative, meaningful work. Overseen by trained IBW volunteers, volunteers and participants work together to produce handcrafted wood products. Once completed, products are marketed, primarily by word of mouth. Proceeds support the work of Six Treasures Ministries. Each shop time concludes with a family style meal that is shared together by the homeless men and other volunteers.
