Announcement   July 19, 2018

A searing hot howdy and greetings from North Central Texas and my hot little shop. We are experiencing an extended hot spell right now and that makes work tough. I am doing the best that I can at the moment, so please be patient. It’s hard getting things done when it 105-110. So expect more pieces to show up but not very quickly. My shop does not have air conditioning. Anyway, I will be selecting certain pieces that will qualify for free shipping over the next couple of days. This will apply only to the lower 48 states, not Hawaii or Alaska or anywhere else. And that will be only for standard post, not priority. Secondly, I have had to update a couple of things in my policies section mainly having to do with custom orders. If you are a repeat customer of mine, so therefore I know you, I will do a custom order if it’s possible for me to do it. The last five custom requests were from new potential customers and all five left me hanging in the wind with the order. So I have had to change the policy on that. The main wood that I have in the log yard right now is pecan, cottonwood and white oak. All are nice looking woods. I do accommodate “bundle deals” for 4 items or more. Just let me know what items you want, and I will create a bundle for you. If you want to do a bundle deal, please don’t purchase anything until you contact me. Also, as is in my shipping policies, my shipping prices posted are for the Lower 48 only. If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, contact me with your zip code and I’ll get you a shipping cost. As I always end with, “So, take a look around in my little shop and maybe you will find something that you like. If not then thanks for looking anyway and hope to see ya back soon!” Thanks, Dave

I am a disabled/retired veteran who has to admit that he just simply likes doing things with wood. A few years ago, I used to build rustic western style furniture and was rather successful with that. But, as I got older I knew I had to scale down to something a little more manageable. I bought a lathe and some basic turning tools, and the rest is history. I like experimenting with different designs. My preference is using only local wood and the largest percentage is from trees that I took down with a little logistical help from my friends. My favorite woods are pecan, mesquite and bodark (osage orange, bois d’ arc). Other woods I enjoy turning are red oak, hackberry, and cottonwood. Please take a look around at what I have to offer and I am sure you will find my prices very competitive. I do this more for therapy than making money. Thanks, Dave

Returns and exchange details
Simply put, I have and always will stand by my work. If you feel I have misrepresented my work, by either description or photos, let me know how I did that and I will take care of it. If I do need to do a refund, I expect to receive the pieces that you bought first for inspection. I do not refund shipping fees of any kind. After 30 days from when your purchase was shipped I will not issue a refund for any reason. The 30 day timeline was established as that is when all shipper insurances have expired. All refunds are done through the same method the item was purchased.
Payment
I will accept PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout.
Shipping
I always ship my products by USPS unless requested otherwise. Most everything goes Standard Post. I do try and keep the shipping costs down. Thurs & Fri and shipping days. With the rise in fuel, boxes, bubble wrap, and other such items it takes to make sure your piece arrives as we both want it to, then this has to be considered in the costs. If you prefer to have your piece shipped priority only, let me know and I will recalculate the costs with your zip code. If I feel I ended up charging you too much I will certainly refund those monies back to you. But, please also keep in mind that these are wood products which do have some weight to them so the costs are accordingly. All prices posted are for the Continental United States only. If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, or in another country please contact me for with your zip code for shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders: From May22, 2018 on I will no longer take custom orders unless you are an established repeat customer of mine. Sorry to have to implement this policy, but I have left hanging out to dry too many times now. I used to pride myself on being one of the few turners that take custom orders, but that has been abused now too many times. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
