Derek is simply amazing. His passion for his work shines through in each of his pieces. His work is meticulous, sturdy and he is one of the most skilled and talented artisans i've bought from on Etsy. Beyond his work, Derek has gone out of his way to ensure every piece ( coat and wine rack) got to me safely and that we were 110% satisfied with everything. I cannot recommend him enough and cannot wait to see what new products he comes out with!

About

When doing bios, I always end up writing about myself in the third person and it just doesn't feel quite right, so my wife offered to interview me to mix it up a bit:

Pernille Goodbrand: What is your name?
Derek Goodbrand: Derek Goodbrand
PG: What is your occupation?
DG: I'm a plumber by trade
PG: How long have you been doing this type of work?
DG: I started as an apprentice plumber when I was 17, and worked for a commercial plumbing company for 13 years. I started working "creatively" with pipe in 2013.
PG: Why did you branch out? Isn't plumbing a pretty good gig?
DG: Sure, but I got a bit tired of being at the same types of sites, eating the same kind of sandwich every day, you know? I just needed to change things up and be a bit creative.
PG: So you quit your job?
DG: Yeah, and it was the right decision. I work way more now, but I love making my own schedule, making stuff, and hanging around with our shop dog.
PG: What it your favorite piece to make?
DG: The copper coat rack, no doubt!
PG: Why is that?
DG: It's by far my most challenging item to make - but also the most rewarding - it has to be just right to work.
PG: So the challenge part of the fun?
DG: For sure, it's not like I run around laughing all day, but I like to make something of quality that will last and last. A lot of people don't want another run-of-the mill piece. They want unique, custom, quality furniture, fixtures and design. They want functional, lasting pieces that fit their style and their home. I strive to make those pieces, and happy customers are my greatest accomplishment!

I take great pride in my work, and I strive to create unique and high quality products. All designs are my own, and I personally handcraft all items in my shop - every item is made with the greatest care and attention. Whenever possible I use reclaimed or recycled materials in order to lessen environmental impact - and because I think it's really awesome to give things a new purpose.

I value every one of my customers and strive to provide superior customer service. My shop policies are in place to protect my customers, as well as myself. Please read my shop policies before purchasing, and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I take great pride in everything I make. If, after receiving an item, you're not satisfied, please contact me directly right away to provide your feedback. I will do my very best to make you happy!

The "Additional Information" section below lists some things you should be aware of before purchasing my items.

RETURNS:
Custom orders are final sale. Regular items can be returned for a refund within 30 days of purchase. The customer is responsible for the cost of returning the item, and the item must be packaged properly, have tracking and insurance, and must not be damaged.

If the item you receive has a defect, please contact me right away. I'll handle these complaints on a case-to-case basis, and will find a way to make it right!

DAMAGED ITEMS:
I'll package all items with the greatest care to ensure that they arrive safely and intact. Due to the nature of the materials I work with, it's highly unlikely that an item will become damaged during shipping. However, if an item is damaged please take photos of the damage right away, and send them to me using the Etsy message feature so I can resolve the situation and pursue a damage claim with the shipping service.
Payment
CANCELLATION POLICY:
The majority of my items are made-to-order. If you change your mind after purchasing an item, please contact me WITHIN 24 hours. I can't accept cancellations after 24 hours as I will have ordered materials at this point.

CANCELLATION POLICY FOR CUSTOM ORDERS:
Custom orders require full payment before construction commences. I'll let you know all details regarding the order, the projected completion and delivery time when the custom listing is set up. This way you know exactly what you can expect before approving and purchasing the order. If you change your mind after purchasing a custom order, please contact me WITHIN 24 hours. Custom orders can't be cancelled after 24 hours.
Shipping
It's very important to me to have items arrive safely and in a timely matter. I do my very best to package efficiently to keep shipping costs as low as possible. Tracking and full insurance is always included with shipping.

All orders within Canada will be shipped with Canada Post (and takes 2-9 business days).

Orders to the United States are shipped using a shipping logistics service offering USPS and FedEx options.

➢ Small packages are shipped with USPS (and takes 3-5 business days)
➢ Larger parcels ship with FedEx (and takes 5 business days)

Please note that orders over $800CAD going to the United States may be subject to an import brokerage fee in addition to your home state's taxes and duties. Customers are responsible for covering this cost.

OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA?
I ship internationally! If you do not see a shipping quote for you country - contact me for a quote. Order to Europe ship with USPS (usually 6-10 business days). Customer is responsible for all custom fees, importation taxes (VAT) that incur when importing goods to their home country.

DISPATCH TIMES:
The timeframes for dispatching are listed under "Shipping & Policies" for each item. Please familiarize yourself with these timeframes before ordering. If you need an item for a specific date, please contact me prior to ordering, and I'll let you know if it's possible to rush the order (It often is!). If you require express shipping, an extra fee will apply. Please contact me for details PRIOR to purchase.

UNDELIVERABLE ITEMS:
It's the responsibility of the customer to provide an accurate shipping address at the time of purchase. I can't take responsibility if an item sent to the address given at the time of purchase cannot be delivered.
Additional policies and FAQs
SOLDER:
I have been soldering for almost 20 years, and I'm quite good, but due to the handmade nature of my pieces there may be small imperfections in the solder. I guarantee that there will be no runs, "grapes" or sharp edges.

COPPER PIPE:
The copper will patina over time. This happens naturally if in contact with oils from hands, or if it is exposed to water or the elements. I consider this to be one of the charms of the material, however, if you prefer a polished finish, I'm happy to recommend methods of cleaning and preserving.

BLACK/GALVANIZED PIPE:
Unless specified otherwise I will use new iron pipe for orders. Iron pipe varies slightly in colour, and sometimes has a rustic and rough look to it, but the pipe you receive will always be meticulously cleaned and treated with an rust-proofing.

WOOD:
I use beautiful reclaimed wood for certain pieces. This wood may have some "character" such as saw and nail marks. If you prefer to use new wood, please let me know. Having a close look at the photos of the items will give you an idea about the quality of wood. Certain types of wood may not always be available.

ASSEMBLY:
To facilitate shipping and keeping shipping costs down, some (basic) assembly may be required for larger items. It'll be easier to put together than any Ikea item - I promise!

BULK:
If you are interested in buying a larger quantity of an item, or if you are interested in creating a custom order, please contact me to get an idea of the estimated timeline for design, construction, and delivery.
