Terms and conditions
Most of our boards are made of recycled Canadian maple or Asian bamboo. The boards are sanded, stained with a darker or lighter colour depending on customer needs and varnished or polished with natural bee’s wax. As the boards are handcrafted on recycled wood, it is nearly impossible for us to guaranty the exact taint from one board to the other. Each boards have their own wood footprint, characteristics and colors. We are happy to email you a photo of the board prior shipment upon request. If no request received from the customer the board will be shipped as is and no return on custom board shall be accepted.
