Terms and conditions
Most of our boards are made of recycled Australian Camphor Laurel, Canadian maple or Asian bamboo. The boards are cut, sanded and stained with a darker or lighter color depending on customer needs and fiished with or without varnish, natural bee’s wax or camphor oil. 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 board have their own wood footprint, characteristics, and color. We are happy to email you a photo of the board prior to 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.
