    Man buys expensive CNC machine - starts Etsy shop

    After being laid off from the technology sector, we decided to make an interesting hobby a money making full time job. My wife Laura started her shop, selling jewelry and other cool things, and I bought a fancy X-Carve CNC routing machine to build unique wood art using state of the art technology to get perfect pieces every time.

    While we use a fancy machine, everything I make is designed in house and cut in our own woodworking shop. We do our best to be Earth friendly and use reclaimed wood where possible and try to source our fresh woods as locally as possible from sustainable and eco-conscious timber operations.

    The name "Spiderwood Studio" is a combination of our main work medium, and the large number of spiders that our property seems to attract.

    Thanks for reading our story and we hope you enjoy our products.

    Thanks for visiting Spiderwood Studio's Etsy store. All our items are designed and cut in house at our woodworking shop in Darlington, Maryland. We own our own little (1000mmx1000mm) CNC carving machine which we use to cut signs and other designs out of various pieces of wood, acrylic, and aluminum stock.

    Everything in our shop is American made by me, with various design help from my lovely wife.

    -- Items Lost/Damaged During Transit --

    We carry insurance on all of our items. If an item is lost or damaged in shipment, please let us know immediately so that we can process our insurance claim. Shipping insurance providers often require proof of damage, which may include pictures of the damaged item AND the damaged packaging. PLEASE DO NOT THROW ANY PACKAGING AWAY. They will also generally require a statement from the buyer affirming that the package was damaged, and this may require your full name and address.

    Refunds for damaged/lost packages will be processed upon receipt of any requested documentation or pictures of the damage. I will happily refund your purchase price + shipping (or provide a replacement item if you so choose) as soon as all required information is provided. Failure to provide the necessary documentation may delay or negate the opportunity of a refund.

    Please contact us immediately and do not mail any damaged items back to us without our consent. Doing so may negate any insurance claim on damaged items!

    If an item's tracking is marked as "delivered" - please double check various areas around your home (porches, back doors, etc) as shippers may place your item in a somewhat hidden place to prevent theft. Also check with other family members and neighbors in case the item was delivered and accepted by another party. I will work with you to contact your local post office as well to find out any information we can about your package to try and get it to you.

    -- Defective Items --

    If your item is defective but does not appear to be damage from shipment, please let me know as soon as possible. Defective items can be returned (at my cost) up to 10 days from receipt of your item for a refund of your purchase and shipping, or a replacement item sent to you at no cost (if available).

    -- Other Returns --
    Non-customized items may be returned for a refund of the item price only once the item has been returned at buyer cost if requested within 14 days of item delivery.

    If you have questions about stain color or materials, please send a convo and request a sample of the particular material and stain/paint combination of an item. A custom order request will be created at minimal cost to send you a small sample of painted or stained wood (usually $2.00 or less + shippingg).
    We accept paypal and credit cards or Etsy gift cards via direct checkout.

    -- Ready to Ship Items --
    Ready to ship items are items which are already made and in-stock at time of purchase and are not customized in any manner.

    Ready to ship items will be packaged for shipment once payment clears, which can take up to 24-48 hours, plus our standard processing times.

    Orders for ready to ship items may be cancelled for a full refund (including shipping paid) up until the order is marked as shipped. After the item has shipped, please see refund policy.

    -- Custom Items --

    Custom orders will begin work once the payment has processed and all required information (names, dates, custom stains or colors, etc) have been provided. Custom work can take anywhere from a few days, to a few weeks. Please see individual item processing times on how long the item will take to make before shipping.

    Please keep an eye out for communication for me regarding necessary information like names and dates. Custom orders that require this information cannot be completed until the information is provided, and any delay in receipt of that information can (and often will) delay your order.

    Because custom items cannot be resold to other buyers, custom items can only be cancelled prior to work being started on your project. As soon as you are sent a proof of concept drawing or mock-up, that is when work is said to be "started" and no refunds will be provided.

    -- International Buyers --
    I am sorry, but at this time we are only shipping in the United States due to a number of factors including laws regarding the export/import of plant material into another country. We look to revisit this decision in the future.

    -- Maryland Buyers --
    Please note that you will be charged Maryland Sales Tax as required by law.
    Shipping will be provided at the choice of the seller based on the best available shipping option for each piece as size and weight differences per piece differ per shipping vendor (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL). If you absolutely cannot receive an item from a certain shipper, PLEASE contact us in advance of purchase so that we can properly price shipment from your preferred vendor.

    If you have a shipping account with a major provider, we are happy to use your account and either refund shipping costs or create a custom order without shipping. We cannot ship without this information and will require any account information prior to work starting on any custom projects.

    We do not guarantee delivery times unless a custom shipping order is placed with a provider that will insure guaranteed delivery.

    If you have an absolute rush order and need overnight or guaranteed shipping by a certain date, please convo us for a custom order so that we can price expedited shipping prior to purchase.
