[About Communication]
Please remember, it’s just the 2 of us. We do our best to send status reports (and sometimes with photos!), but due to the nature of our business, we find ourselves juggling a very busy schedule often fraught with getting ready for shows outside of the shop. Also, sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t cooperate when it comes to staining, sealing, or glueing; unbeknownst to you, we may have to make the product a second time. Just know that we’re working hard to make your custom piece perfect. This is the nature of operating a business and making handcrafted products in America.

As we like to say, “We don’t use child labor, and we don’t use prison labor, we do this to ourselves.”

When will I be credited for my return?
We credit your account as soon as we process your return and receive the merchandise, generally within 5 to 15 business days following the receipt of the return. Check with your bank or credit card institution to see when they will report the credit to your account.
