I kind of expected more from it. It looks pretty good and silky but the feeling feels a bit cheap. It does the job nicely and I looks good so I guess that's what's important. It is having a hard time combing with my stiff hairs, haha.

Looks really well made and at a really nice quality. To be honest it looks a bit like the tools inside were bought and just covered up in a nice looking wood. Overall a nice product..!

When you enjoy the scent of fresh bacon frying in the morning, but don't like doing it yourself. Not sure how these taste, however they do smell legit.
Bringing the Great Outdoors inside the shop. Compliments the sawdust and creates a manly bouquet. #manly #soycandle #outdoorscent #naturalproducts #workshop #miniFab #Dallas #Texas #OakCliff #BishopArts

About

Can’t find the perfect gift? Let’s make it!

Hello there!

Welcome to our small fabrication studio, or mini-Fab. We make interesting things for interesting people, just like you. Here in our shop, we consider the products that we create to be our own personal pet-projects. These are the things we think are pretty cool and we hope that you will like them too. Our personalized products are mostly small and unique conversation pieces that will make you the envy of all your friends – If you’re not already. In which case, our wares will make a great personalized gift for that person that seems to have everything.

At heart, our mini-Fab is rooted in its tradition as a classic woodshop. Most of our items are completely handmade in Dallas, Texas using traditional woodworking techniques as well as cutting-edge digital fabrication. We have a shop full of conventional tools along with a laser cutter, CNC router/mill, and a 3-D printer to help make your project. Our products are typically made out of wood, leather, cork, acrylic, and aluminum, but that doesn't stop us from experimenting with other stuff. We try to locally source materials that are eco-friendly and sustainable, whenever possible, and try to put every last scrap to good use in order to minimize waste. Some of our natural wood stains are made in our shop using household items such as vinegar, steel wool, hydrogen peroxide, copper, walnuts, and tea.

Our products are very customizable and can be personalized with a name, initials, monogram, logo, or just about whatever strikes your fancy. We try our best to accommodate most requests. Don't see what you're looking for or need help customizing one of our products? Let us know. We're happy to help.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Most pieces are made-to-order, just for you. Feel free to make it your own by leaving your personalization in the "Notes to Seller" box during checkout.

Important: Lead times will fluctuate during very busy times of the year, so please do check each individual listing, under the shipping tab, for the most current processing and transit times. Please see my Shop Policies for more information.

Gift wrapping and packaging

The packing and shipping materials that your item will arrive in may contain recycled boxes and packing. We try to do our little part and reuse as much as possible. If you intend to send our products as a gift (directly to the recipient, for instance) please let us know if you would like the fancy shipping packing.

Refunds

We know we can't please everyone all of the time, but we still try and take great pride in our 99% satisfaction rate. It gives us the confidence to offer a 100% guarantee on all of the pieces we make here in our shop. If, within 14 days, you are not completely pleased with your purchase. Simply send the item back to us for a full refund, less the return shipping costs. No questions asked. What we do ask is that you please contact us before shipping any items back to initiate a refund, as we cannot accept items without return authorization.

Exchanges

Due to the natural materials we use to make our products, there may be variations and flaws that we just can't catch every time. If we goof or send you a product that does not work as it was designed, we will always correct it by replacing or repairing the piece.

Wholesale availability

Our products are also available through Etsy Wholesale. Please let us know if you would like a link to our linesheet.

Care instructions

Wood and Cork Pieces: We recommend using a light dilution of a natural orange cleaner and a soft cotton cloth to gently clean the piece.

Razors: Dry razor completely after use and apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to the steel blade to prevent it from oxidizing.

Shaving Brushes: Rinse thoroughly and shake out excess water when finished.

Domestic Shipping

Track your package at any time by clicking:

YOU/PURCHASES/TRACK PACKAGE

You can also see the estimated ship date. Most things are custom pieces that are made-to-order and 100% fabricated in our shop here in Dallas, Texas. Please allow about 3-7 business days to make your product, package it, and then ship it out to you. They will ship USPS with a tracking number, and will usually arrive within a week. For fastest shipping, Express 1-2 day and Priority 1-3 day shipping options are available and will be sent as soon as your product is finished. Please note that upgraded shipping does not affect processing time.

International Shipping

We love shipping stuff to international customers! All products will ship, when completed, by USPS First-Class Mail International and can take a few weeks to over a month for delivery. For faster delivery, upgrade to Priority International Flat Rate which should arrive in 6-10 business days or choose Express for the fastest delivery of 3-5 business days. All packages will be insured and have a tracking number. All duties, taxes, and import fees are the responsibility of the customer.

Any packages that are unclaimed, mailed to a former address, or returned to us outside of our responsibility, can happily be resent at the cost of additional postage. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the original shipping in these instances.

Holiday Delivery

Last day for Christmas delivery is Nov. 27th for international orders, and Dec. 9th for domestic packages. All purchases after these dates will ship just as fast as our hands can make them. We appreciate your patience and thanks for understanding.

You will receive an email confirmation with a tracking number when your order ships. Please check your Spam Folder for missing notification. If you placed an order before our holiday cutoff, we will ship your domestic package on or before Dec. 19th to ensure Christmas delivery. There may be a few pieces that required some additional care and these will be sent Dec. 21st via USPS Priority 1-3 day delivery. Unfortunately, we are seeing some packages not being scanned as they make their transit.

Contact

I would love to hear from you and I'm always happy to help.

-Please DO use the Etsy Convo system.

-While the "Notes to Seller" box is a great place to leave personalization requests associated with your purchase, it isn't a great place for questions. Please consider sending all those through the Etsy Convo system, where they will be seen much quicker.

-My workshop is noisy, so it just isn't possible to talk on the phone.

-I receive a very large volume of messages, so it (typically) takes 24-48 hours to get back to everyone. I'm a family man, so anything received Friday evening through Sunday, will be answered after a weekend chasing children, walking the dog, and helping my lovely bride around the homestead. Thank you for understanding.
