Product warranty and care


I conduct a quality inspection before I deliver all of my products, but they are made from wood and sometimes contain natural imperfections. I consider these as unique character elements of the wood. If you find a workmanship defect in your product let me know and we can come up with a solution to fix it. I will not leave you with a defective product if proper care was given to the product.

Proper care

Paddles - My paddles are made to propel canoes by pushing water. Any other use can cause damage to the paddle structure or finish. I recommend that you inspect your paddle for cracks, splits and finish coverage prior to each use. A damaged paddle should never be used until it is properly repaired. I recommend that you apply the handle tung oil monthly and an exterior oil varnish every year. This will maintain the finish and help your paddle last for years. If you have any questions about care for your paddle, please contact me. I will be happy to walk you through the process.

Boards - My boards are made for kitchen and cheese knives. They should never be washed in a dishwasher or be soaked in water. Wash them with a mild dish soap in warm water and pat to dry. Store them out of direct sunlight. Apply board wax monthly or when required to keep the board looking oiled.

Custom products - I will provide detailed care instructions for each custom product.
