 Sent from my iPad. I received my prayer kneeler yesterday via ups and can not express enough how in love I am with my purchase.  I have wanted a kneeler for sometime now and finally gave into a want and bought myself a gift. The workmanship is more than I could of expected and the color of fabric used reminds me of Christ passion in its hue of purple. Keep up the good work in supplying a much needed world a way to fall on its  knees to worship the King of Kings. God bless and keep you.                                                                     Sincerely in Christ, Anna 12/13/2013

Dear Stewart,

I received the 3-rung prayer kneeler on Thursday as you told me.   I have put it together and it is just beautiful.  I cannot wait to see my daughter-in-law's face on Christmas morning.  What a blessing it is that you have the gift of handwork, such as the work on the kneeler.  Thank you so much for you work and sending the kneeler in a timely manner.  I will certainly recommend you to any that I know.Merry Christmas and may you and your family be blessed this season.Sincerely,  Mary

Just received our Kneeler and it's just beautiful.  You craftsmanship is perfect and well worth the wait.  Thanks again for all your help, God Bless. Mary Ann

Hi Stu –

Just wanted to let you know that we received our kneeler and are just thrilled with it.  It was easy to assemble and it looks beautiful in my prayer room. I especially appreciate your wonderful craftsmanship. It is a lovely piece that we will always treasure.

I’ve attached a few photos for you. Feel free to use them and our testimonial on your website or elsewhere if you’d like.

Thanks so much and blessings to you,

Hi Stu,

Just a quick note to say we received the new kneeler and it looks GREAT!!! Thank you SO much for re-doing the stain. It matches perfectly now.

Again, thanks for the extra effort and let me know if you'd like us to be a testimonial or something to repay the favor.

Take care!

Greg & Clara

I received my kneeler a couple days ago and LOVE IT! I attached a picture.

We couldn't decide whether to put it upstairs or keep it in the bedroom.

It has a spot in the bedroom for now. Excellent craftsmanship! Thank you so much.

God Bless+


I was so delighted with the kneeler that I wanted to write you right away but am just nowgetting to it.  The wood and finish is beautiful and it was packaged so well.  I'm a 73 year oldwoman and was a little uncertain about putting it together.  The directions were clear and I had it together in a couple of hours.  I'm sure a younger stronger person would have done it so much faster.  At any rate I am VERY pleased with the appearance and the functionality of the kneeler at a reasonable price. Thank you very much.  Jean3-15-08

We just wanted to send a note to tell you how very pleased we are with the kneeler you built for Walter.  It is excellent craftsmanship, was easy to assemble (once we got our brains on straight), shipped in a timely manner, and Walter was so very touched by this gift!

Keep up your good work and be assured if anyone asks for recommendation of a product you provide, we will be most happy to refer them to you.

Dear Stuart.... I just had to write and say "thank you" for the beautiful workmanship and quality which you put into your product. The kneelers which I purchased are all I expected and MORE!
God has truly blessed your hands with the talent of woodworking!! They are assuredly the finishing touch that my prayer room needed. Again, "thank you" and may God bless you and your family with health, prosperity and most importantly LOVE in the year ahead.

Thank you for creating a wonderful gift for my father-in-law in Minnesota!  My mother-in-law thought it was shelves at first and said, "Send it back!".  My father-in-law pulled everything out and assembled it with no problems and explained to her that it was a kneeler.  They love the kneeler and said it was the best gift they have ever received!  We extend our heartfelt gratitude and thanks to you for helping us with the perfect gift!  Happy New Year!  Thanks and Regards,Kelly

Stu,THANK YOU for the wonderful double prayer bench and for the successful effort to get it for Christmas.We appreciate the extra work to get it here quickly.My wife and I love it.

Hi, Stu.

I'm sorry to be a little personal here, but I thought it might be helpful for you to hear a little about the impact that your work can have.  (As a teacher, I know that it's pretty nice when that happens.)
Your prayer kneeler is fantastic.  I've been thinking about getting one off and on for quite a while, but never got serious enough to look around for real.  Well, my wife passed away early this month.  I figured that if I ever needed a little prayer help,
it's now.  She was very artistic and purple was her big color (hence all that nonsense with the material.)
Prayer has always been a significant part of our family's life, but broken-hearted prayer for strength just seems a whole lot more appropriate on my knees. 
I don't think I can adequately express in words what a comfort your prayer
kneeler is to me at this time.  The fact that I just had to wipe some of that comfort away from my eyes is pretty good evidence, though.
With the Most Sincere Thanks,
A Veryveryveryvery Satisfied Customer4/20/05

Hi.  Just wanted you to know the kneeler arrived today and we put it together.It's exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be happier with it.  I like the color, the style, the size, and it's very comfortable.  It is heirloom quality at an affordable price.  Thank you very much and thank you for the fast shipping.  I'll say prayer for you on it. Best wishes,Judy4/18/05

Stu,My Mom received her kneeler and absolutely loved it.  It is a finely crafted piece of furniture.  Thank you so very much.Terri5/04/05

I received the Quilt Rack. It is beautifully crafted and was expertly packaged. Thank you so much for a job well done!


I just had to take the time to tell you how beautiful our prayer bench is.  It arrived very promptly and took about 20 minutes to put it together.  Being an artist myself, I have to say the only thing missing is your signature.  It is truly a work of art.  Thanks for sharing a God given talent with us.

     Just wanted to let you know the Kneelers arrived today.  I must say they are truly a work of art.   My concerns with assembly were unfounded as we had no problem at all.  We will be ordering 2 more after the 1st of the year. Father Lane.11-18-04

Hi Stu, just wanted you to know that I was visiting my daughter,
Allison, the other day and got to see her newly arrived quilt
rack (which she proudly boasted that she had put together all by
herself).  It is beautiful.  Just wanted to thank you again.  I
recommend your site to anyone shopping for quilt racks.  I love
mine and now my daughter loves her.  I have another daughter who
is at least 3 years away from owning her own place, so keep at
it.  I'll be wanting another one for her some day.  Thanks again.

Hi Stu, just wanted to let you know the wedding kneeler arrived yesterday.  The box was damaged, but the kneeler was ok.  My husband and I just love it, excellent craftsmanship.  God Bless, Mary and Robert.6-18-04

Many thanks for an excellent job on the cabinet.  It is just what I wanted!!!  It arrived by UPS this afternoon in great shape.  It is already unwrapped and placed in our kitchen.  The color is good, the workmanship excellent.  We sure are pleased!!!! If any one wants a referral, we would be very happy to give an excellent recommendation.Cliff and Pat Herold

Dear Stu...

Just wanted to let you know that the kneeler you made for my father arrived last Sat., 1/31, and he loves it.  My brother-inlaw came over and put it together and it is beautiful.  Thank you so much.

Stu, just wanted to take a minute and let you know how pleased I am with the Quilt Rack.  The finish is really beautiful and the style goes great with the furniture in the room.  The stain came out a little lighter but still contrasts beautifully.  Thank you for taking my special request for a taller rack.  It turned out to be exactly what I needed and wanted.  All this and it didn't take months to get it!    Thanks again and I would gladly refer others to Bears Wood Shop. Anita Loftin

Stu - Received my three-rung prayer kneeler Thursday, just like you promised when I ordered it.  UPS delivered it to my office without a hitch.  You did an incredible job of packaging - not a scratch on it.  I waited until Saturday to put it together, because I thought it would be a tough job.  I could not have been more wrong.  It went right together in about twenty minutes without any trouble. It looks great.  Your suggestion of the grain filler was a great idea - it really finished the piece off and it truly is an heirloom piece of furniture. I was looking for a simple, comfortable place to get away from the hustle and bustle every day to pray.  You gave me that and much, much more.  Great product, great price, great job. If anyone would like to speak to one of your satisfied customers, have them call me. David Henn

Stu - I would like to thank you for your quick and beautiful service.  The quilt rack is absolutely beautiful and my mother just loved it.

Thank you.

Dear BearThank you so much for the Kneeler that I received yesterday.  It is a very nice product and was impressed in how nice you packed it.   If you ever make the tables again, let me know as well as the price. Peace,

I am most pleased with this new bench.  It is for my Mother for her 50th wedding anniversary to my Dad.  She will be thrilled.  I can't wait for her to see it and show it off.  The wood is beautiful and the kneeler is just the right color. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job!! Sereta

I received the quilt rack last week.   My husband put it together.  I have never ordered anything over the internet before.  WHAT A WONDERFUL PRODUCT YOU ARE MAKING!  I have looked everywhere for a quilt rack and have found nothing with the quality and pricing that you have.  Keep up the good work, and I will for sure return in the future when I need something.  Have a great Christmas!Hilary

I just got done putting your "Oak Quilt Rack With Heart" together and I have never been more pleased with the workmanship and quality of a wood product.  It is always a scare to buy something sight unseen and over the Internet so I was very relieved to see the final product.  Thank you for your care and have a happy holiday.


I received my quilt rack and want you to know I love it—your workmanship is suburb, the wood and finish are lovely!  Thanks for a quality product.


I recently ordered a quilt rack from your company and wanted to let you
know how pleased I am with it.  It arrived very quickly after I mailed in
my order and my husband put it together right away.  Thank you for a
beautiful product!



Hi Stu,   I got the panels last night. They look great I'm going to mount the fish on them today. Whenever we need a panel it will definitely be from you.                                         Thanks again,                                                                 Gregg

Hi, Stu! I got it!I received the package this morning.  It was so well packed that it arrived in perfect condition.  It looks beautiful, I can't wait to put it together.Thanks again for yr efficiency and yr good work.Marie, Switzerland

Stu,Just thought I'd let you know that the quilt rack arrived yesterday and I put it together last night.  It looks great.  Thanks very much for your help.  Maybe we can do business again sometime, John

Hi Stu,Just wanted to let you know that I received the replacement bird house.  It was just perfect.  However, I managed to repair the broken one as best I could and think I've found a place to mount it that the weather won't bother it.  So .........I would like to buy the replacement one and order 2 more of each as I did originally.  Hope that makes sense!  Do you accept checks or money orders because I have probably about maxed out my credit card!Also, just want you to know that I had made a similiar type order from another company (#$%^@#$%$.com) and received their products yesterday.  They were pathetic-poor quality, not sanded, etc......... Keep up the good work.  Your products are top quality!Brenna

It arrived! Thanks, Stu. Its beautiful and is holding those precious heirlooms already.
Sorry for the confusion I caused you...
