About GerberWoodProducts

Sales 5,875
On Etsy since 2012

Gerber Wood Products purchases Richwood Creations of West Virginia. June, 2018.

Gerber Wood Products is a third generation, family owned hardwood component manufacturer founded in 1901. Our business serves a wide variety of industries and has a diverse product range. We are located in scenic Kidron, Ohio, a village with a distinct Swiss influence located on the edge of the rolling hills of Amish Country.

Gerber Wood Products had the opportunity to purchase Richwood Creations in 2018 which specialized in e-commerce sales of laser personalized wooden home decor. Founded in the summer of 2012, Richwood Creations was established in an effort to create jobs for local youth and help fund the Young Life ministry in Central Appalachia.

Now united, we continue to strive to provide a high level of product quality and exceptional service. We purchase the highest grade hardwoods available from the Appalachian region to make heirloom quality products your family can treasure for generations.

Returns and exchange details
Custom items are not returnable. We do our best to visually represent and accurately describe each of our pieces in our shop. Because wood is a product of nature, each piece is unique and may vary, so each purchase is final. Due to the nature of laser-engraving, designs are permanent and cannot be altered. If you wish to cancel your custom order, contact us immediately and we will refund your purchase if not yet engraved.

A refund on non-custom items will only be issued if there is an obvious discrepancy between the product you received and the photograph or description we provided. In that case, the entire product will need to be returned to us at the buyer's expense before we issue the money back.
We accept Paypal as well as most credit cards and Etsy's gift cards!

We ship our items out only after a listing has been purchased. For custom items, a listing must also be purchased before we design or create your product.
We typically ship via USPS but may occasionally send smaller and less fragile items or international shipments via FedEx or UPS. Rush shipping is available upon request and for an additional fee. We will typically insure our fragile items, and if anything is damaged en route to you we will be sure to remedy the situation! We currently ship worldwide. Write us with any questions!

International Shipment Disclaimer: Customs duties, taxes and processing fees may be incurred, depending on the country the product is shipping to. When this happens, the buyer will be asked to pay this cost before receiving their parcel.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our current lead time for most products is 1-3 business days before shipping. Domestic shipping is an additional two to three business days.
