About Shades of Oak

          Lester Scheuermann started Shades of Oak over twenty years ago as a cottage industry to support the growing work of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd throughout the United States.  He is the husband of a Montessori-trained catechist (Level I,II,III) and the father of two catechesis-trained children.  

            Shades of Oak has supplied over three hundred atria with quality material.  Working part-time from his home-based workshop, he has developed a limited selection of durable and beautiful material for the atria.  Availability of materials varies; all items are sold unfinished for completion by the catechist.

Currently taking orders, most items shipped within two weeks.

Shades Of Oak no longer ships outside of the U.S.
