Hi, My name is Stephanie.

This offering is the joining of a long time love of textile crafting (rug hooking, appliqué, cross stitch, needlepunch and quilting) with my love of primitive antiques.

My wood working hobby was inspired and taught to me by a dear friend. I made my first Shaker box fifteen years ago, and I still enjoy the simplicity, beauty and utility of these wonderful boxes first brought to us in the 1800’s by the Shaker community. 

These boxes are individually handcrafted and finished. Each box is made from hard woods, and every piece of wood has its own characteristics, and therefore each box is unique. I start with rough sawn lumber from the mill and through many steps I prepare the wood for the box bands, then use steam to soften the wood and form the round box.

The bands are individually beveled and copper tacks hold it all together, just like a hundred years ago.  My exclusive re-design of these boxes will frame cross stitch and other needle arts on the shallow top of the lid and then the lid can be flipped for increased depth to frame your hooked rug, a mounting ring is included with each box.  Many existing patterns can be adapted or already will fit the round lid.

The Lone Elm Lane Line of woodenwares continues to expand :

 Our CROWN LINE of boxes,  with unique Lone Elm Lane moldings used to frame on the top of the box, we offer 8 x 8 square

(queen) box with a divided tray and 8 x10 (Prince) Crown Box with sliding divided tray, and even a 10 x 10 box (King)  that allows

a larger design space and storage inside. 

We have released a new cabinet which mounts the design in the door and beautifully displays your cross stitch or needlepoint with

so much more than a frame. 

Our new Candle Box, with its sliding lid made to frame your project, is a vintage design turned into a sewing project box.


Our CABIN Box was added late 2016, a more primitive bevel to the lid and palpable box jointed (log cabin) corners, with a hand

applied, layered and  distressed painted finish. This is 8 x10 box size with 6 x 8 pattern size.

Pedestal frames, made with the special "Lone Elm Lane" styled molding,  frames 4 x 4 or 6 x 6  patterns. They can be custom made

for about any size design. Email for pricing.

It is my privilege to design patterns & create woodenwares, a lasting treasure to the bearer, an awesome gift for the receiver, truly an heirloom. Please grab a coffee, spend some time browsing our pages including the designer pattern gallery, where we show off finished patterns that so many designers have labored long hours to create for Lone Elm Lane wooden wares.  Truly, we are humbled and blessed!
