Welcome to 'Edge of the Wood', the Esty presence of Thendara Woodworking. Thank you for visiting my store and I hope you have found that special item you can treasure and enjoy. I put much care and love into each and every item you see here, striving for an enduring beauty in craft and in the woods I use.

I hope my designs please your senses and you would like to display one in your home. Or maybe you have a special item that needs a secure and beautiful space to rest in. If you don’t see a box style, type of wood or size that would work for you, contact me and we can work on a custom design together that suits your needs.

All fine woodwork should be displayed away from direct sunlight. Buffing with a clean soft cloth will remove handling marks and dust when needed. At some point you may want to add some quality paste wax to bring back its original luster.
Most of my boxes are finished with shellac and protected by a hard carnauba containing wax. Shellac’s solvent is alcohol, so you should avoid placing that glass of vodka on it (perish the thought!). That aside, remember, for centuries the finest musical instruments have been protected with shellac. It is a superb non-toxic finish that shows the wood well and protects.

Additional policies and FAQs

I want you always to be happy with your purchase. Any in-stock box can be returned, in original condition, no questions asked, within 30 days for a refund or exchange. And, if you EVER have a problem with your box you can return it and I will fix it, no charge. (Of course, excluding the usual, normal use, abuse, neglect, flood, fire, you know the drill.) But seriously, if this box fails I want to hear about it and I will repair or replace it for you. I have the utmost confidence that will never be necessary. Enjoy!

Custom / specially made items cannot be returned but the same guarantee is in effect for these items. RETURN SHIPPING IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER AND SHIPPING CHARGES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.

Kitchen items, because of their nature of use are not returnable unless there is a structural defect on receipt caused by the shipping carrier. We must be notified within 3 days in this case.
