Welcome! Please carefully read all info below. I did my best to answer all questions you may have, however, if I missed anything please feel free to shoot me a message in the contact form at the bottom of this page.
EACH PIECE CREATED TAKES HOURs TO COMPLETE. A LOT OF TIME GOES INTO THE ENTIRE PROCESS, INCLUDING FINISHING. I begin this process by locally sourcing lumber and carefully selecting each board. my design is applied and each piece is cut and shaped by hand with a variety of specialty tools. DRY SANDING AND WET SANDING ARE APPLIED, helping thE GRAIN STAY SILKY SMOOTH. FINALLY, EACH PIECE IS FINISHED WITH FOOD GRADE, PURE MINERAL OIL AND USDA ORGANIC BEESWAX. *KEEP IN MIND MAINTENANCE WITH OIL/wax IS REQUIRED TO KEEP THIS FINISH AND IS NOT ALWAYS GUARANTEED.
it's important to remind the customer that wood is an organic material and is not indestructable. AGS believes that through proper care and maintenance, that over time, their piece will age and patina beautifully; creating character unique to the person(s) that uses it.
in your wholesale package i will include a 4x6 AGS "care card" that can be given with each sale. One card is provided per piece. Additional cards can be purchased separately in the online store. All info needed to care for a board or utensil is neatly explained on these cards. as seen below (shown in front/back).
upon request, a BRAND-LESS card can be provided for an additional cost.
Delivery & Shipping
delivery and shipping options:
Local delivery is an option within Austin City limits for $10. This will be sent in a separate invoice or can be paid in person.
if your in the surrounding area, DELIVERY is possible at an additional calculated charge. This will be sent in a separate invoice or can be paid in person.
shipping is calculated per order and is sent in a separate invoice to optimize shipping costs.
"The core collection" are pieces that were carefully selected specifically for wholesale. These pieces are not only the most EFFICIENT to make, but also yield the most consistency. Most importantly, the handmade aspect and quality is still very present in each piece. when you buy from ags, you're not just buying a product, but a thoughtfully made and completely handcrafted work of love.
additionally, there will be more pieces added later this year! if you're not seeing something you would like to carry, please let me know and it is definitely something that can be discussed. It would be considered custom and I would need to take the time to work out pricing/time logistics and would certainly be happy to make something work!
you're interest in my small business is greatly appreciated and I look forward to working with you!!
