Custom Cutting and other Services

You can now order some custom services right over the internet.  Note that services may increase the time it takes to get your order shipped.   If you are meeting a deadline, you may wish to call us and ask how long it will take us to finish your order with the services added.  Usually the extra time is 2 to 3 days more than it would take without services added.   Note that cuts are only guaranteed to 1/8" plus or minus, so please take that into account when giving cutting instructions. Note:  We only do straight or rounded cuts,  other angled cuts or contours are not available. Returns:  Returns of pieces we cut at your request are not allowed unless they fall more than 1/8" +/- outside your specifications.  Rounded pieces are guaranteed to be sized to 3/8" under the listed size or larger, as this is a hand-done process.

Key to terms:
Crosscut:  Cutting across the smallest area of the piece.  In a 2" x 2" x 12", that would be a 2" long cut.
Rip:  Cutting down the longest part of the piece.  In a 2" x 2" x 12", that would be a 12" long cut.
Cut round:  For bowl blanks, this means rounding off the corners.  Note:  They will not be perfectly round.
Dowel: A turning square that has been turned round on the lathe.  Near perfect or perfectly round.  Rough Sanded.
