The Handcrafted Wooden Christmas
Manger and Porcelain Nativity Set

From Lesko's Works of Wood - Delivered Within Days!

"I have been looking all over for a sturdy manger like my papa made for my mom back in the 40's. Never have I found what I was looking for. And the figurines that I found were always cheap imitations of what my parents had. I wanted something that I could pass down to my daughter. When I received my set, I have to say, it was what I was looking for and even more!! It was my childhood memories all over again. Thank you so much. You will make my Christmas so special this year and for every year to come. God Bless."
-- Penny, Pittsford, VT

"I received my manger today, and I cannot tell you enough how much I love it! It's exactly what I wanted and by far exceeded my expectations. I can't take my eyes off of it - it is so beautiful, and the figurines are very well done. Thank you so much, and God bless..."
-- Anni, Austin, TX

"We wanted to let you know we received our nativity and have given it as a gift. She absolutely loved it...and so did lots of other folks at the party for her! Thank you so much!"
-- Loreen, Texas

"Just wanted to let you know that I received my Nativity Set -- that was fast -- and it is just what I was looking for. Very nice work."
-- Kathy, Lexington, Kentucky

"I am absolutely overjoyed at the set. It was everything I had hoped it would be...size, quality, concept. I had hoped I was ordering a set that could become a family heirloom to be passed down thru the years, and what I received exceeded my expectations."
-- Bob, Connecticut

"My daughter received the Manger. She is so excited and can hardly wait to use it this Christmas. The size is just right for the figurines she has and she loves the dark wood and how sturdy it is. She says I am an excellent gift giver but I think I'm just lucky now and then. Thanks,."
-- Cliff, Buffalo, NY

Who Is Lesko's
Works of Wood?

A family-run business just south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dennis Lesko has been an expert woodworker for over 30 years. While searching for a Christmas Manger for our grandmother's nativity figures, we found nothing made of solid wood - most structures were simply stapled cardboard. That just didn't cut it with Dennis, so he built his own. It was such a hit with family and friends, that we decided to make it available to others. The rest is legend.

Built the way a Nativity Set should be...
  • Rustic wooden timbers echoing the mood of ancient times
  • A bed of hay and wood shavings lending an authentic manger feel
  • Hand-rasped and hand-stained for a rich, textured finish
  • Optional porcelain figurines, with Baby Jesus surrounded by his adoring parents, beautiful animals and visitors from the East
  • Stable and cradle are 100% Douglas Fir
  • Dimensions: 20" wide, 14" high, 8" deep


For about 35 years, Dennis Lesko has been handcrafting these impeccable wooden Christmas Mangers in his shop 25 miles south of Pittsburgh, Pa. What started out as a one-time family need has blossomed into a thriving holiday tradition, with countless thousands of his distinctive Nativity Sets gracing the homes all over the world. Yet Dennis still makes every Manger himself - by hand! That's what makes these unique Nativities from Lesko's Works of Wood superior to anything else on the market.

Each Stable is exquisitely detailed in Douglas Fir and finished in a cocoa brown stain that will keep your Nativity Set in fine shape for years and holidays to come. Nativity Sets come with 9 porcelain figurines: Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the Three Wise Men, a Shepherd Boy holding a lamb, a separate lamb, and a donkey. Figurines range from 5 to 8 inches tall. You may purchase your Lesko Nativity Set with or without them.

The handmade cradle is 4.5 inches long by 2.5 inches wide by 1.75 inches high. It, too, is made of Douglas Fir and stained cocoa brown. Dennis has also affixed wood shavings and hay to the cradle to enhance the rich rustic texture.

The classic wooden design of the Stable is what makes them so popular, but what Dennis is most proud of is the integrity of the structure itself. These are sturdy!
