Q: How do I care for my piece?
A: This is a long one...
Chainsaw carvings WILL crack. It is inevitable as the wood we use is made by God, not by us so we cannot control it. By following the steps below you can minimize the appearance of unsightly cracks. In the unlikely event that a piece splits beyond the width of a grown man's thumb, we will do our best to work with you and repair the crack or lessen the appearance of it.
We will NOT replace a cracked piece. If we were to replace it, there is no way to guarantee the next piece won't crack as well; it's simply nature.
If your piece is in direct weather ( constant wind rain or sun) I would reccomend coating it with three or four coats of spar urethane the first year and a coat every year after, or as needed if you are familiar with working with wood products.
Cobra rods can be added, as per manufacturers instructions, to help increase a piece's longevity
Pieces placed in the dirt or grass should be placed on
about two inches of gravel for drainage
a patio stone or walkway stone with furniture spacers
Pieces placed on a deck or porch should be placed on furniture spacers to allow for an air gap.
If you have questions regarding the maintenance of your piece, please call Chris @ (910) 364-3905
