If you need help, or are unsure what to do, please let us know. 

We do not offer refunds or exchanges on personalised and custom orders. We do make it clear that colours and wood grain may look different on screen to in-person. And that handmade products may differ slightly from the photos on the website. 

Sorry to hear that you’ve made a mistake! Even though we ask you to double, double, triple check everything, mistakes still happen. Let us know and we’ll try to work out a solution for you but we do not offer refunds if you make an error on any product.

Product and mounting information

Our unique timber decorations and products are all handcrafted in our studio using lightweight plywood sourced from renewable plantation resources and 100% well managed forests. Every piece is beautiful and unique because of the different characteristics of each piece of timber.

We recommend using either a large amount of blu tac or double-sided 3M tape to attach your Timber Tinkers products to walls. For heavier pieces (eg height charts and signs), double sided tape works best. More detailed product information and hanging instructions are available on our product page.

Our first day boards to be used with chalk only. Please do not use chalk markers of any kind, which leave a ghosting effect.

By using the chalk only you will be able to reuse your board year after year.

For any of our products where you can fill in details (eg height charts and signs) we recommend using a super fine permanent marker (the finer the better) or even a ball point pen. This is to avoid any bleeding onto the wood.

Timber Tinkers products are available online through our webstore. We occasionally have stalls at design markets where you can come and say hello to us in person! Keep in touch with us on Instagram @TimberTinkers or on Facebook at /TimberTinkers for more information about where to find us.
