Announcement   We are moved! So Ray's shop is out of vacation mode, and only the frames he has made already are for sale but not all of his frames are listed yet ( I will do this soon!) If you don't see the exact frame inquire, it may be made just not listed.
NO Custom frames can be made at this point and will probably not be available for this year. We plan to be moved into our new home and shop running before or by Jan 1, 2019.

As of Today, March 4 until we have built a new house, only the items in the shop will be available for sale (and the several dozen we need to put in the shop as they are made)
RAY WILL BE DOING NO MORE CUSTOM ORDERS and Making no more picture frames, cribbage boards, cutting boards..... he WILL be wood burning. We will be able to ship anything you see in the shop as normal (EXCEPT ONE WEEK MARCH 13-22) which the shop will be in Vacation mode. SO GET THEM WHILE YOU CAN! We hope to have the shop back up and running by Christmas!

Welcome to Ray's shop- I have Cutting boards, Picture Frames, and Cribbage boards that I have made in my wood shop.
I(Karen) have changed all items over to calculated shipping which has been tedious, but should be worth it! Shipping is priority mail. Sometimes I put in the wrong size and sometimes Etsy decides I will ship differently, and comes up with a whacky price for shipping PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE YOU RUN!!! I will fix it!! And If I over charge you, I will refund In the same manner the item was paid for.

Priority has insurance on the order so be sure to take pictures if ever an item comes damaged. Print off your receipt and take it to your local post office. SAVE ALL OF THE PACKING so it shows I did a good job and you will get a refund! We will send out another shipment ASAP usually as soon as you get the claim we have them remade so communicate! This has only happened a few times.

If you have any questions or requests please feel free to convo me! My wife Karen often does the conversations as I am pretty computer-illiterate. Thank you for looking. A lot of the frames I make more than one at a time so often I have several from the same wood and would look similar... if you are looking for a set, ASK!! I may be able to help you out.

About

Rays Woodworking

Ray started making frames, cutting boards and even some furniture after we helped our builder, Jay Costa, build our house in 2004. Since then he has broadened his sizes from strictly 8x10 and 11x14 to 5x7 and up to any size under 40". He will make custom size frames too if possible. Usually wood availability is the hindrance.
Karen started taking pictures and we were selling on ebay but after finding out about etsy we strictly sell here now! By default Karen does all the pictures, listings and postage. Ray on occasion will answer a conversation but most of those are also Karen!
Austin helps his dad move lumber, unload lumber, search online for lumber, drill out the cribbage board holes and other things that help his dad out. He used to make the kitchen utensils he sold on here, but does not enjoy it now so he is no longer making them.
Ray hopes to retire from his full time job and be able to do wood working for a living but for now this is a weekend hobby. If Ray isn't working or sleeping he is in his dungeon as he calls it (our cellar!).

NO REFUND ON CUSTOM ORDERS!!
***IF I PUT A HANGER ON THE FRAME IT IS NOT RETURNABLE***

Sometimes people get an item and it is truly not what they want, we understand. Let us know, return it in EXACT CONDITION and we will refund you the price of the item. We WILL NOT REFUND THE COST OF SHIPPING IT TO YOU. You will also pay to have it shipped back. We strongly suggest USPS priority as it includes insurance (remember it must reach us in perfect condition for a refund).

Refunds are only given if the item is returned in the exact condition it shipped out. If you have altered it no refund no return. If you do return an altered item I will send you pictures and you will not get the item back nor will you get a refund.

Exchanges are possible if buyer returns an item UNDAMAGED and pays for the replacement to be mailed. ALSO NO Exchanges on custom items, and not with frames that have hangers put on them. (I can not put a frame back in my stock with a hanger on it, it will scratch other frames. Another buyer might want it hung another way.)

Damage due to shipping to you is covered by insurance: Shipping is insured through USPS and buyer needs to make the claim through their post office if there is damage. Refunds can be done on line or in person. Take pictures and bring in ALL of the packaging so you can show I packaged it well (which I do!) Refunds will go to the buyer who can then buy again. (contact us, sometimes we can expedite the reorder if we know the refund is coming to you). The claim can be done online and with pictures you should win.

Items that have a defect due to us we will gladly send a new one- case by case. Contact us, pictures show us what you might think is a defect and we can rectify the problem if there is one. These are HANDMADE frames- made by a human. Occasionally there is an error and we do our best to make our customers happy.
Payment
We need payment to clear before we can ship. If you send a check it will take a few days to get to us, and 3-5 working days to clear. We have paypal and direct payment set up on etsy.
Shipping
I have set calculated shipping on most items, and those are set to go anywhere. NOTE** I will not falsify customs paperwork, buyer will be paying tariff fee if their country charges it- this is not a fee I receive, not do I charge it or set it. If you live in a country that charges tariffs on products you buy, you know it, and should know you will be paying it.***

Shipping is insured through USPS and buyer needs to make the claim through their post office Or online if there is damage. Take pictures and bring in ALL of the packaging so you can show that I packaged it well (which I do!) Refunds will go to the buyer who can then buy again. (contact us, sometimes we can expedite the reorder if we know the refund is coming to you).
Additional policies and FAQs
The sizes are stated as if you were putting the size picture in the back.
8x10 takes an 8x10 picture. There is an over lay of wood that will cover some of the picture so you may want to put a matte on, making it the next size up ie: 8x10 into an 11x14 matte= 11x14 frame. We usually use 1 1/2" wide wood on the smaller frames and 2" wide wood on the larger frames. The sizes are written in the frame write ups. WE DO NOT PROVIDE BACKING, GLASS, OR TABS TO HOLD IT ALL IN. Some people use finish nails, or painters tape to hold it in. We Can send a saw tooth hanger if it is requested, we can also mount one if it is stated at time of sale. Otherwise none is included.
