Core Values Statement Block FAQ

Product, Pricing + Packaging

Yes! From raw lumber to cutting, hand sanding, engraving, and shipping, our small team does it all from our red barn woodshop on the Minnesota prairie.

We infuse music, breaks for playing with the dogs, and lots of coffee and dark chocolate into our workdays.

You receive high quality, expertly crafted gifts made by people who love what we do and have fun doing it!

We source American grown hardwoods sustainably grown and harvested in the US.

The blocks are finished with a blend of organic oil and locally sourced pure beeswax.

That gorgeous color and grain pattern you see? 100% natural.

In alignment with our sustainability priorities and plastic-free commitment, we do not individually package each block.

Each block is 2.25" square.

Pricing is based solely on quantity, regardless of what and how many sides are engraved.

Each of the six sides of the block can be unique, however all blocks must be identically engraved to one another.

If you need more than block design, you'll need to add each block design to your cart one-at-a-time so that quantity pricing is properly calculated.
(Minimum 10 of any single block design.)

No, we do not offer individual personalization on these blocks.

No, sorry. Given everything that goes into a carrying out a custom engraving job of this nature (proofing, test engraving, file setup, machinery setup, etc.), we cannot fill orders of fewer than ten blocks.
