I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but thank you for doing such a wonderful job with my box. It was worth the wait!
Personalized and Handcrafted wooden prayer request boxes and stands with engraved text and designs
Ask and It Shall be Given You
Hello Glenn, Just received the Prayer Box yesterday. IT IS EVERYTHING
Not Cookie Cutter
I've been looking all over to find something worth paying for and not just a "cookie cutter" model if you will, but something i could customize. I believe your site provided just that!
Custom, Hand-made Wooden Tabernacle Boxes
All of these boxes come with a hinged front locking door with two keys, and are made to hold wishes, dreams, requests and hopes. It’s very important to me, especially when I consider the importance of what gets put into these boxes.
Tabernacles have generally been made of metal (such as bronze or brass), or sometimes of hard wood. They are traditionally lined in white cloth (often silk), and are always securely lockable and generally permanently affixed or bolted to their support. Some Tabernacles are veiled when the Eucharist is present in them. These veils are often of cloth and design similar to the priest's vestments (that is, to create a harmony of design), and are either white (the color of the Eucharist), gold (which may be substituted for white), or of violet, green or red depending on the liturgical color of the day or season.

Catholic tabernacle information
Here is some background.
The tabernacle is a box or a cabinet which sits at the center behind the altar, or, increasingly, in another place to the side of the altar. It reserves the Blessed Sacrament; sacred vessels that hold consecrated hosts, which Catholics believe is the actual Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. According to rules laid down by the Church, the tabernacle should not be see-through and should be made of a material that is unbreakable. Catholics kneel and pray towards the tabernacle because they believe they are actually praying in the physical presence of Jesus Christ on earth. They also genuflect (bending the left knee and placing the right knee cap on the ground) towards the tabernacle as a sign of respect and adoration. The contents of the tabernacle may only be touched by a priest or a Eucharistic minister. The tabernacle is opened during most Masses in order to obtain extra consecrated hosts if required for the distribution of Holy Communion. The hosts are also used for the distribution of Holy Communion outside the celebration of Mass. A large host may be reserved for the purposes of Eucharistic adoration, when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed on the altar for personal prayer and adoration of Jesus Christ.
With every tabernacle box ordered, I prefer to make the box specific and personalized just for you. Together we can establish the ideal card, gratuity, suggestion box, or even a new product just for you. We will talk about selecting the raw material for the wooden project--some work better for a card box than others, for example. Then we will discuss any surface designs. Embellish the box with a cross, your church logo; personalize with a favorite bible verse.
Wooden Gratuity box & Prayerboxes
Design your own prayer box or use our photos for inspiration. Lockable wooden comment card boxes and prayer boxes make great additions to your church or organization. Personalize your prayer box or gratuity box with your images or logos.
Wooden Card & Suggestion Boxes
Card or suggestion boxes can provide a secure place for items that may be of a personal comment or suggestion nature. Choosing the right design and styling, your wooden card or suggestion box can add a dignified and finished element to your event, church or any establishment. Wedding card boxes can provide a secure place at a small or large reception for your cards that may have checks and cash in them. As an option I sometimes am requested to put the locking door on the bottom out of view.
My background in making wooden prayerboxes began on this webpage from a customer that made a simple inquiry requesting a box with a slot and a locking door. From that first inquiry I realized a need and have made many custom boxes of this type. Being able to provide these boxes for such important contents fulfills my passion for quality wooden prayerboxes, comment, card, gratuity and suggestion boxes. I look forward to making a personalized wooden box for you.
