“genius rustic furniture makers shrine”
The Shrine of the Pines is a world famous tourist attraction that is displayed in a Northwood hunting lodge, in a secluded, wooded spot on the banks of the historic Pere Marquette River. The Shrine is the home to the great lifetime work of Raymond W. Overholzer which display dozens of items like: A table made from a 700 lb. stump, with more than 60 inlays in its top. A rocking chair of roots so perfectly balanced it rocks 55 times with a single "start". A fireplace constructed of 70 tons of native stone. Walking on the path you come across the Widows Cabin, looking through the pane glass window glimpse at a few of the more than 400 hand crafted souvenir items. Open May 15 thru October 15.
I was amazed at the painstaking work to create these works of art. The creator did not pay for any of his wood but rather gathered it from stumps left behind by the logging industry. Tours were run every half hour and were very informative.
