A little while back I brought into the log yard a fair amount of white oak. This happens to be the first turning completed from that wood. This is a very nice wood that has a natural rustic appearance to it with the various colors and spalting it has. This box is perfect for someone to keep salts, spices, herbs, teas and so on in. I left the lid slightly loose to accommodate humidity swelling. The diameter is 5 ½” and the total height with the lid on is 3”. The vessel depth is 1” and the box has a capacity of about ¾ cup. That may not sound like a lot to some folks but believe me it actually is. The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture that was heavy on the shellac. Going heavy on the shellac in the mixture gives the box a nice sheen. The combination gives the box a nice hard long lasting natural finish. 26Mar17 BXWO1

    Finally, the Red Oak
    Centerpiece Serving Bowl arrived in perfect condition, too. Its form and color are also beautiful. The arrangement of the wood’s knot (I think that is what it is called) right below the rim, gives it what I call character or distinction. This bowl is another work of art from Mr. Hoskins, and I am so grateful he has shared it with me.

    The Large Red Oak
    Hollow Form Bowl also arrived in perfect condition. The shape and color of the bowl make it incredibly beautiful. I am sure it will be the new heirloom in my family.
    Mr. Hoskins is an wonderful artist.

Returns and exchange details
Simply put, I have and always will stand by my work. If you feel I have misrepresented my work, by either description or photos, let me know how I did that and I will take care of it. If I do need to do a refund, I expect to receive the pieces that you bought first for inspection. I do not refund shipping fees of any kind. After 30 days from when your purchase was shipped I will not issue a refund for any reason. The 30 day timeline was established as that is when all shipper insurances have expired. All refunds are done through the same method the item was purchased.

Shipping policies

I always ship my products by USPS unless requested otherwise. Most everything goes Standard Post. I do try and keep the shipping costs down. Thurs & Fri and shipping days. With the rise in fuel, boxes, bubble wrap, and other such items it takes to make sure your piece arrives as we both want it to, then this has to be considered in the costs. If you prefer to have your piece shipped priority only, let me know and I will recalculate the costs with your zip code. If I feel I ended up charging you too much I will certainly refund those monies back to you. But, please also keep in mind that these are wood products which do have some weight to them so the costs are accordingly. All prices posted are for the Continental United States only. If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, or in another country please contact me for with your zip code for shipping costs.

Additional policies

Custom Orders: From May22, 2018 on I will no longer take custom orders unless you are an established repeat customer of mine. Sorry to have to implement this policy, but I have left hanging out to dry too many times now. I used to pride myself on being one of the few turners that take custom orders, but that has been abused now too many times. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
