Most work made in Josh’s shop is by commission. To help you with this process, we describe the typical procedure on this page.

To start you need to let us know about your interest; the link to our contact page above carries our current information. You can expect a reply within 1 to 3 days.

The next step involves a series of communications over a period of 2 to 3 weeks to discuss and finalize design details, wood and finishes, pricing and shipping methods. By this time you may expect to have a copy of perspective drawings with specific dimensions and an invoice. Before Josh can proceed, a down payment to cover the cost of the materials must be received.

Then begins a wait period during which materials are purchased, wood is allowed to cure, and the piece is made and finished. Depending upon the number of other commissions in Josh’s shop, the piece you have ordered may be finished and ready to ship 3 to 4 months after the receipt of the materials deposit.

Full payment for the commissioned piece must be received before it will be shipped. We guarantee that your piece of furniture will be structurally sound and that the natural finish will withstand normal use. We would love to see pictures of it in your home.

Thank you for your interest.

Josh and Rachael Hicks
