- Why does shipping cost so much for large orders?
Shipping from our shop can be costly due to the location as well as the weight and size of the crucifixes (3 lbs, and 18 inches tall by 12 inches wide). However, we are happy to cover the cost of shipping for up to 20 Crucifixes as an out-of-pocket donation to the mission. Orders of more than 20 Crucifixes require a shipping charge of $3 per Crucifix.
- Where are they made?
Crucifixes are made in Naples, FL in our custom cabinet shop, Woodworker’s Cabinet of Naples, Inc.
- Where does the wood come from?
The wood comes from our custom cabinet shop. We use scraps of wood and cutoffs from our in-house woodworking projects. Some of the wood is donated by lumber suppliers.
- Can you ship internationally?
Unfortunately we cannot ship internationally at this time.
- Can I request a specific type of crucifix?
Due to the nature of our mission and how we obtain the wood, we cannot take specific requests for types or shades of wood.
- Are you a 501c3?
Yes! We have 501c3 status from the Internal Revenue Service. All donations made to the ministry are tax deductible.
- Where do the metal corpuses come from?
They are manufactured by Newpoint Products in Newpoint, Indiana.
- How do these compare to a crucifix I could purchase in a store?
Made of solid wood and metal, these crucifixes are of incredible quality. Something similar in a store would carry a value of about $75 each.
- How many can I request at a time?
Crucifixes are packaged in boxes of 2, 5, 10, or 20. We are happy to send up to a box of 20 free of charge. If you are requesting more than 20, we ask that you cover the cost of shipping of $3 per Crucifix. Orders of more than 20 should submit a request online.
- Who makes the crucifixes?
We have a small crew of 3-4 people that are responsible for the fabrication, finishing and assembly. Three are Woodworkers of Naples employees and one is a volunteer. We are always looking for more volunteers to help, so please contact us if you are interested!
