Larger woodworking furniture needs to be shipped UPS. I have been shipping furniture by UPS, blanket wrapped delivery and common carrier for over 30 years. I know how to pack your furniture so that it arrives in the same condition as it left my shop. All furniture is boxed, wrapped or crated with the same care as we built it. We do not claim to offer “free shipping” and then hide the shipping costs in the price of the furniture. You pay what it costs us to pack and ship your product and not a penny more.
I’ll generally for smaller products, it takes 1-2 weeks to create, unless I have multiple orders. We should be able to take your product to the post office within two days of completing your order. If you have a very tight deadline please contact us to discuss the best option. As for larger items, the build time is a lot longer, and so is shipping.
Costs vary by country, weight and delivery method. Canes will generally be cheaper to post than paddles, because they weigh a lot less. It will normally cost the same to post four or five canes as it will to post one.
