Sunday Maple Collection
What can you do with a handful of tools in the forest? One sunny Sunday afternoon, we went for a little family walk, and found a soft spot on the moss to relax while the kids ran and played. Joe went for a short walk and returned with a maple sapling that had been been damaged in a storm. It was too small to mill into lumber, but Joe could still put it to lots of good use! To watch Joe roughing the first spoon out of this Sunday Maple, visit our blog post In the Forest. To shop all of the items that were made from this tree, check out our Sunday Maple Collection!
Traditional craftsmanship, paired with natural, sustainable materials, means home goods you can feel good about using every day, and even hand down to the next generation! We offer a wide variety of hand-crafted woodenware for the home, from cookware and dinnerware right up to custom furniture. Each of our individually-crafted wooden items is named after scripture, to keep God’s word always in our minds in the little daily things of life.
Handbags and jewelry, tea towels and swaddles, even soap and essential oil products…If something is useful to our family in our day-to-day, we look for a way to integrate God’s word into it, because it’s all of those little moments that add up to a day spent honoring the Lord!
Books & Art
God’s creation, and His word, are both endlessly inspiring! Find devotionals and children’s books, original watercolors and inspirational prints, even journals and home decor…All inspired by the beauty of God’s world all around us, and all inspired by the beauty of God’s word in our hearts!
Like Little Children
At Riven Joiner & the Homestead Store, everyone in our family makes things by hand, even the children! We hope you’ll enjoy browsing toys and games, carvings, and decorations, made by our children, who are seeking their own ways to honor the Lord with the work of their hands! Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6, KJV)
Hidden Word Collection
Whenever possible, we like to have God’s word written directly on the items that we use every day, to honor His name, to remember His promises, and to hide His word in our hearts. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Psalm 119:11, KJV)
Every day, as we eat our meals, we may be reminded to thank God for His provision of our literal daily bread, as well as our spiritual daily bread, which is His word that sustains us! Give us this day our daily bread. (Matthew 6:11, KJV)
In many seasons of life, we may be blessed with abundance to share with others! These large serving bowls and serving spoons are a daily reminder of God’s overflowing abundance, as we share with our families and friends! But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33, KJV)

What Customers Are Saying
Nothing Like Handmade
I personally have bought several pieces and I am never disappointed! To hold a spoon I know was carved lovingly and prayerfully has an indescribable feeling ♥️ truly I cannot describe it adequately.
Custom Muslin Swaddle
I commissioned Sydney, to make this specialty for the son we fervently prayed for in a season of learning complete dependence on God. She prayed over every aspect of this creation and every scripture that was carefully written to each corner and inside.
And yesterday, I held it in my hands and I was reminded that God is over me, my family, our house! I needed that!
