All orders are shipped via USPS Parcel Post or UPS Ground. Orders are usually shipped 1-3 business days after I receive payment for the order, unless the item has a longer stated lead time in the description. You should receive the order within 1-2 weeks of it being shipped.
If by chance you need your item shipped sooner, I am more than happy to accomodate, just let me know by way of convo first or by a message with your order. Any additional shipping costs will be the buyer's responsibility and I will send an updated Paypal invoice.
I will also ship international, again, just contact me with any special requests.

Refunds and Exchanges
At this time, I do not offer exchanges unless it was a defect or error on my behalf. My inventory simply is not supportive as I generally do not stock duplicates. Instead, I will simply issue you a full refund including original shipping costs.

Refunds will be issued for returned items ONLY if the received item returns are in their original condition. (I suggest shipping back in the same packaging if possible) Shipping for any return is to be paid by the shipper. Sorry no returns after 30 days. If you have any questions or issues, just ask and I will work to get it resolved quickly for you.

Lost/Damaged items will be refunded or replaced only if insurance was purchased.

Please report lost or damaged items as soon as possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Although a properly prepared and executed glue joint is incredibly strong, I also employ different types of internal joinery wherever possible to ensure the longevity of your purchase. These methods include splines, biscuits, dowel pins,and dovetails. The strength of these joints is witnessed by my personal cutting board, who's multiple inlays and several different seams are held together by a combination of pins and biscuits. As a test, I have run this board through the dishwasher over 20 times (NOT RECCOMENDED!!), and while it is worse for the wear, it is still 100% intact and I use it everyday.
Again, as this was just a test, please don't try this with your own purchase, as the extreme heat and moisture of a dishwasher will eventually lead to irreparable damage.
Care for a wooden cutting board is simple enough, just handwash with a mild soapy solution, rinse and let dry. Every once in a while (2 weeks to a month), wipe on a little of the mineral oil/beeswax finish provided with your cutting board. This will maintain the luster of the wood and provides protection from moisture. Additional wood moisturizer is available for purchase as well.
For more aggressive cleaning, use a solution of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water and flood surface. Wait 15-20 minutes, rinse and pat dry. Wait until fully dry and wipe on a little finish.
A properly cared for wood cutting board is a happy one, so please follow these simple instructions and you will enjoy the beauty and function of these natural materials for years to come.

Also, a note to those who contacted me asking why I have started putting rubber feet on almost every cutting board.. The feet solve two problems, it provides safety from slipping and sliding around while you are cutting, and also keeps air circulating underneath when the board is drying out to prevent warping. If you insist on having no feet on your board, please send me a note and I can most certainly accommodate.
