I have had this beautiful rosary for a week now and love it. It reminds me of St Joseph the carpenter. It is sturdy, compact and the earth of the wooden beads is soothing. I have found my forever rosary.
I actually purchased two rosaries from The Catholic Woodworker and use both. I’ve always loved the wooden beads, and these rosaries are beautiful.

I bought this rosary as an anniversary gift for my husband. He absolutely loves it and we pray the rosary every night. I requested a change in the crucifix and it arrived just as I asked. It's a beautiful, high quality product and I would definitely order again or consider buying one for myself in the future.
I heard about the Catholic Woodworker on TCMS, specifically them referencing the durability when kids are involved (I've had to fix several of my rosaries after letting my toddler "pray" with them :)). I can definitely say, I can't see her breaking this one any time soon! It's got a classic look, and I can also forsee passing this rosary down to one of my kids later in life.
