Love my little mice. They added a colorful boost to my Christmas yard decor with the added bonus of being flat for the pack up until next year. The art work and paint are as nice a pictured on the site.

Tom's Custom Woodworking

I have always done woodworking on the side but when I lost my sales job a few years ago, we decided to really put some effort into marketing myself and what I can make. We juggled the budget so that I am able to work in my work shop and spend my days doing what I love to do. We spend out time here at home in New Jersey and make monthly trips to Virginia to see our daughter, son in law and two beautiful granddaughters. My mom, who is 90, helps me out in the shop and keeps my area clean and lends a pair of hands when I need them. As you can see, we are very much a family business. We appreciate all of the support and feedback we get from our customers and look forward to street fairs and craft shows to get out and talk about what we love to do.

Shop policies

We make all of our woodworking and all of our other items so no item is exactly alike. We can use any color combination or stain color you would like, so please ask if the picture isn't exactly what you are looking for. We can also take most pictures and make something from them, so again, please ask. We don't have room to keep everything we have made on hand so some items are made to order and may take a few days to finish and ship.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
We will accept checks, but will not ship the item until the check has cleared in our account. Money orders are better and of course we accept credit cards and PayPal.
We will ship most items USPS parcel post since the wooden items can weigh quite a bit. The smaller items I will try and send first class or priority if possible. On average our items ship in 2-3 weeks as we make them all to order.
Refunds and Exchanges
We will accept returns within 7 days if the item arrives damaged or is not to your liking. I will only refund the cost of the item, not the shipping and you will pay the shipping to return it. If it is damaged, we will replace the item or refund. I pack very carefully and have never had a problem with damaged items.
Additional policies and FAQs
We love custom orders. Ask us if we can do it before you assume we can't. Send us a conversation with a picture and we will honestly tell you if we can make what you want or not.
