I was looking forward to this piece for a vanity top in a guest bath. It was cut to my specifications. It was shipped without a tracking number and left on my porch while I was away. Upon receipt the crate was completely apart and broken and upon inspection the piece was cracked in a variety of places, some which were part of the wood and others appeared to have occurred in a drop of the package. The piece was very attractive though not strong enough for a vanity top to hold a vessel sink which I told the vendor I needed. I was extremely disappointed in the vendor's response who would not file a claim and left me to deal with FEDEX. This has not only been stressful but the vendor never offered to make a new piece or help in any way which was a huge disappointment. I can't speak to the craftsmanship as the piece so damaged.

1) All pieces are shipped with a tracking number, it's on the invoice from Etsy. This is automatic on the shipping program I use (Shippo). 2) Fed-Ex can not contact a person that does not provide their phone number. 3) Piece was securely packaged within a wooden crate - inside the piece was wrapped in bubble wrap. 4) The piece was load tested to hold 125 pounds before work on the piece commenced. 5) I personally walked the customer through the claim process, assisting in every step of the way (She even thanked me). 6) In every listing and on my shipping policy page I state customer initiates damage claims. 7) I did offer to make a new piece; customer did not want to pay for it. 8) Customer gets to keep the piece(s) and a full refund. I'm sorry this happened.

Absolutely stunning slab of red cedar wood. I used it as a table accent for a cocktail brunch on an 8' table and the scale was just perfect. Thanks so much Gregory for your super prompt communication, excellent packing and shipping, and excellent craftsmanship!

About

Making one of a kind designer wood slab furniture!

The germination of Hurricane Milling

In 2011 Hurricane Irene was barreling down on Eastern North Carolina. Just before the storm had hit I had closed on my house and two days later was laid off from my retail management position. I had no back up plan so I called a long time friend of mine and owner of Atlantic Coast Landscaping if he needed any workers for the hurricane clean-up.

While cleaning up fallen trees I found out that all the wood was going to the city of New Bern to be converted into mulch. This included massive oak, walnut, pecan, maple and other beautiful hardwoods.

After contacting someone who had saved a few logs and milled them into live edge slabs. I began hand sanding and finishing the slabs and listing them on Etsy. As I found it harder and harder to come by raw live edge wood slabs I purchased a chainsaw mill and began making my own slabs, I did this for a year before saving up enough for a band saw mill.

With being able to cut my own logs I am able to get custom cuts for specific projects. As I steered away from just making slab table tops and shelving I began making full furniture pieces which will include a full furniture line in the summer of 2017.

As Hurricane Milling looks towards the future, the business will be going into three different development phases, (1) Furniture design and development (2) Selling rough sawn lumber of unique domestic species (3) Mass production of easy to install floating shelves.

    I am an adventurer, writer and wood worker. These are my three passions. I take in the raw material of the wood and work with it to bring out its story and capture its natural character for your home or office.

Refunds and Exchanges
No Refund Policy. Cancelation can be rewarded after 24 hours of purchase with detailed explanation of cancelation, there is a 15% restocking fee for all canceled orders. Please take damages up with the shipper (I generally use Fedex). Save all packaging and take photos if damages occur. I do my best to package the slabs so normal shipping can not damage the items. Sometimes though the shipper will find unusual means to damage an item. If a legitimate claim is filed with the shipping company a check will be mailed to you within three to five weeks and there is no need to return the slab.

I make every effort to present the pieces as true to the actual piece as possible through digital means. Colors will be slightly different from monitor to monitor in some cases due to different monitor color, contrast, and brightness settings. All my wood is sealed with a clear coat and is the natural color of the wood. Once a piece is sold I examine the piece once retrieved from storage and will contact the purchaser if the wood has altered in any way before the shipment is sent out. I want my collectors to be happy with their purchase!
