Our Materials and Process
The wooden camera body is cut and drilled in our workshop and sanded twice, once by belt sander and once by hand. Corners and edges are slightly rounded to make sure they are not sharp. Surfaces are sanded smooth. The camera body is painted by hand using brush and certified non-toxic water based paints. When the paint is dry, a couple coats of certified non toxic water resistant gloss are applied to ensure the paint is protected and the camera can be easily wiped clean. The special spring loaded push button (made in our shop) is fastened on to the body along with the made in USA wooden wheels and pins we use for the lens and mode dials. As a final touch, a hand sewn wrist strap made from cotton twill is added to the camera and the camera is lovingly packaged ready to be sent to you.
Made To Order
Most of the items in our shop are made to order, meaning that they are made especially for you when you order them. Although we carry lots of wooden blanks in our studio, we don't paint them until you order them. Your item will look similar but not exactly like the photos in listing. Photos in listing are for example purposes only.
Typically our order completion time is 5-10 business days depending upon how big your order is and the type of products you have in your order and how full our order que is. Sometimes we can get your order out within 3 days and other times it may take us the full 2 weeks. Please note: Creation time does not include shipping time.
Shipping Times and Pricing
We believe in transparency and not hiding shipping costs in our prices as well as not inflating our prices to provide so-called "free shipping".
Reality is shipping within Canada is expensive. Post office rates that include tracking start at $17.99 without insurance and goes up to on average $22-$24/parcel within Canada. (you can check this out for yourself on the Canada Post website). This rate is the same for a small 0.3kg bag as it is for a 1.4kg box, so we are able to provide you with one standard price shipping price for any amount of items you order. Shipping within Canada typically takes 3-15 business days.
If you are located outside of Canada, the shipping rate you see is also a one time fee for any amount of items you order from us. Shipping outside of Canada may take longer than 15 business days.
