Each item has been meticulously hand crafted from woods from around the world. Each wood is unique in its grain pattern and will darken naturally over time; NO stains are ever used in the finishing process. Please remember that color intensity of some woods will vary, therefore, exact grain and color matches are impossible to provide.

The small turnings are finished with tung oil and many have been waxed as well. The larger items are finished with either lacquer or a satin gloss polyurethane. Periodic light dusting with a quality furniture polish will help preserve the natural luster of the wood. Items that will contact food, (such as: the rolling pins, chopping blocks, and cutting boards) are finished with "Preserve" -- a non-toxic blend of exotic nut meat oils -- and should never be placed in the dishwasher.

The executive writing instruments are available with either a ball point, or rollerball tip and are compatible with the Cross® brand refills. The fountain pen will accept either a Mont Blanc® or "A&W" brand refill. The mechanical pencil uses a standard .05 mm lead and an eraser and spare leads are located under the plunger cap.

Most of the items shown are made from a particular specie of wood as indicated in the item's description. Please contact us if you wish to special order an item from a specie different from what is listed; we will make every effort to accommodate your wishes. All orders are subject to wood availability, however. Please note that all items are individually handcrafted and, as such, may vary slightly from the photographs or from each other. No two items will ever be exactly alike.

Our goal is NOT to make money on shipping! However, due to ever escalating charges for both shipping and packaging materials, we were forced to develop a shipping policy based on a historical analysis of our records of the actual charges for shipping our larger, heavier items.

This, however, proved to be unworkable, so we decided to go back to charging the actual costs for shipping. We will bill the charges to you after shipping and will send you a copy of the receipt, if requested.

We will still make every effort to use recycled packaging materials, whenever possible, in an attempt to keep our costs lower; we will pass the savings on to you.

We accept cash, good checks, money orders, or Mastercard and Visa. Ohio residents must include 6% sales tax on every order. Please DO NOT send us cash in the mail; we cannot be responsible for it arriving safely

We will never rent, share, or sell your name to another company. We use any information that is collected from order requests to process those orders and/or to update our mailing lists. We do not share this information with anyone else except for what is absolutely necessary to complete and ship your purchases. We only use e-mail addresses to reply to any messages that we receive and to correspond with regard to orders; they are not shared with anyone else!

Our goal is your satisfaction! Each item purchased is guaranteed for life (yours or mine) against defects in WORKMANSHIP. Should any problems arise please call us to make arrangements for repair or replacement.

Remember, QUALITY TAKES TIME!! Please allow approximately three (3) weeks for delivery. We will, however, make every effort to get your item to you sooner whenever possible.
