After months of learning web design...

…here it is. A revised platform with a real way to place an order!

I felt so overwhelmed by the process, but so thankful that we are in a good enough place to re-launch. I am thrilled to share the new carved goods with you and am beyond excited to be covered in sawdust once again versus having a sore bottom because I have been at the computer so often.

The Spring here in Michigan brings new life, better weather and a renewed spirit within. Perhaps a new sign for renewal in your home is needed as well?

Let us know :-)

Well it's live, ready or not!

Hello friends,

Welcome to the live version of purchasing goods from The Northern Palette in Belleville, Michigan. I have spent the last 18 months learning Computer Aided Design and my new(ish) CNC Router. There have been a lot of things that have gone to the fire pit, no really a ton! However, lately I have been having much more success and feel that I can now offer you a quality carved product at a fair price.

There are a few pictures in the Shop, and we will be adding more this Spring/Summer. My goal is by Fall any kinks will be worked out and we will be running seamlessly. I am so excited to share these with you all, I really love what I do, you inspire me to be better at this craft.

I appreciate you being here, and trust you will find your way back on occasion to check out the latest and greatest in carved goods.




It is staggering how one seems to set a “realistic” goal and life just doesn’t allow it. For whatever reason I am unable to get things done on the original time table set forth by yours truly. I feel like Doctor Claw at the end of Inspector Gadget “next time, next time”.

For now, know I am trying to balance this life I have chosen to lead as a wife, homeschooling Mom, maker, and business owner. It certainly kicks my tail sometimes, yet all these aspects make this amazingly wonderful story. I am so thankful you are here, please check back.
