Frequently asked questions about OutOfTheWoodsUSA

The items found on Out of the Woods–USA are not intended as toys and should not be played with or handled by children. Items are a choking hazard to children. Children can swallow small parts or experience cuts and / or splinters from sharp edges of the wood. Fingers can be pinched in lids. The finish on the pieces can easily shed if chewed or sucked on. Out of the Woods-USA does not sell toys.

The pieces are meant for decoration only. If handled as a toy the delicate and fragile artwork and sculptures will break.
Each piece of wood is unique - just as no two trees are alike. The finest hardwoods have natural characteristics such as: closed knots - a blackish blue streak called mineral streak; telegraphing - some darkened grain shows through the stain; and/or birds eye - small brownish dots.

None of these appearances are to be considered flaws, blemishes or imperfections, but rather, examples of the beauties of Mother Nature.

Wood is in constant state of expansion and contraction depending on your home’s humidity. This normal movement may cause some hairline cracks - this is a natural occurrence.

Please look at the pictures carefully before ordering to be sure that you will be satisfied with any of the naturally occurring distinctions.
Anything finished with block and cutting board oil IS food safe.

According to manufacturers of lacquer and shellac, their products have not been approved as food safe. With that said, many bowls purchased from stores are finished with either lacquer or shellac and are used for food. Out of the Woods–USA does not promote anything finished with lacquer or shellac as being food safe.
