Where are Todd Alan Woodcraft products manufactured?
Todd Alan Woodcraft products are proudly produced in the USA, more specifically in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Where do you get your wood and how is it selected?
We network with a variety of vendors world wide to obtain the highest quality wood we can find.
We work with several varieties of wood from the United States, Canada, South America, Africa, Australia, and Europe.
We use only the highest quality wood available. Each piece is hand selected by us for color, grain and width, so we can best match boards that are used in the construction of a single item.
Is every board or lighting project the same?
Though we do our best to match grain patters and colors within a product line, due to nature and tree species, grain and growth, all wood is different and no two cutting/serving/flight/charcuterie/butcher boards are exactly the same. Though not fully pictured, some boards may have coloring, figuring, flecking, mineral streaks, mended knots left for ascetic purposes and other natural characteristics. We stand behind our boards One-Hundred percent for construction and workmanship. These mentioned wood characteristics do not effect board quality or longevity.
Electronic and Lighting fixtures are mostly one of a kind, as we inspired for the design of the lighting by the unique bases we create. We strive for zero waste, and a lot of our lamp bases are made from the left over wood of other projects, repurposed for a product, instead of a dumpster. That’s why many of our lighting bases are one-of-a-kind.
I'd like to order a Cutting, Charcuterie or Serving board or product without feet, can I?
Boards, YES. The feet allow the boards to have grip, be stable on the surface its set and also to help it dry evenly after washing, cleaning and oiling. It is IMPORTANT to note: Any board without feet will not be warrantied and once the board leaves our facility, the warranty is instantly void. For more information visit our Returns, Exchanges and Warranties page for more information.
Since some boards and products are designed without feet, those originally designed without feet are considered to be warrantied under our full warranty.
Electrical products, NO- when it comes to electrical works removing feet is not an option. Most electronics and lamps will have feet unless designed not to. We are NOT responsible for issues or accidents if any parts or pieces of electronics, lamps or lights are altered or removed.
Can I alter a design or order a completely custom piece?
Other than removing feet, altering a piece is considered a custom job. Please contact us BEFORE ordering for any altered or custom piece you are interested in having produced.
For custom orders, email us directly here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Does Todd Alan Woodcraft require a deposit?
For all custom work, yes. Please ask us for more information.
Do your cutting boards contain glue?
Yes, we use industry standard glue, used in the production of food quality products. We use the highest quality materials for every single job.
Do you chemically treat your products.
Cutting, Serving, Flight, Charcuterie boards and Butcher block products, No. We use food grade mineral oils and bees wax.
Lighting products may have some kind of federally approved chemical treatment if needed in rare cases- but usually- No.
We strive to make all our products as natural as possible.
What kind of finish is used on the boards and other wood based products?
For Cutting, Serving, Flight, Charcuterie boards and Butcher Blocks we use food grade minerals oils and bees wax.
To purchase these products for home care, go here: Wood Care Products.
Electronic and Lighting products may use mineral oils and wax, but also some products may have sealants, stains, and non-food grade materials.
Outdoor specific products will have sealants, stains, and non-food grade materials.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask on a specific product.
How accurate are the dimensions listed on the website and in the catalog?
We measure, and re-measure for the best accuracy. Wood by its nature will expand or contract depending on temperature and humidity.
Our measurements are accurate in the climate we keep the products.
Are the colors shown throughout this website accurate?
We do our best to attempt to keep our images true to natural color during the photography and editing process. Our screens are calibrated to the best setting in an attempt to keep this trueness, but may or may not be completely accurate. Also depending on your screen’s settings and preferences, color may or may not properly be presented.
Are there color samples available?
No, we do not provide color samples as all wood is unique in coloring and grain. Once wood is oiled it takes on its own life. What you see on the site is the closest representation of the product.
If you’d like to see a generic sample of a woods raw coloring, we suggest going to this website with an easy to search database of 1000’s of wood varieties and their sample pictures.
How do I store and care for my Todd Alan Woodcraft boards?
Store products flat in a dry area away from extreme hot or cold temperatures as nothing is fully mildew or mold proof. Wood is a porous material. Some serving and flight boards can be hung on a wall if designed to.Same conditions on storage apply.
DO NOT LEAVE OUTSIDE. If any product is left outside that is not designed to be, we can tell upon inspection and the warranty will be instantly voided.
Follow the directions HERE to learn about how to care for your wood based product.
Also, We do not recommend using serrated knives on any boards.
Can I use the same cutting board for Vegetables that I use for Raw Meats and Seafoods?
We suggest using separate boards for Vegetables, Meats and Seafoods. Cross Contamination of food borne bacteria most likely will occur if you use the same board without completely cleaning, treating it and allowing it to dry. Even though wood has been found in some laboratory results to have a natural antibacterial property, take common sense steps to prevent the spreading of food borne bacteria.
How do I care for a planter or outdoor piece I’ve purchased?
We use the best quality products for our outdoor pieces. We’ve researched varnish, stain and sealer, to provide the longest lasting and best quality finish we can find. These are chemicals not used in making our other products, so our outdoor pieces are not finished in the same place that our food grade products are made.
Even though we use the best products, direct light, heat and climate all apply when caring for your outdoor products purchase. With cedar planters, as an example, we suggest purchasing some of our stain or finish, as for longevity, cedar planters to be re-stained every other year.
