FAQ's

  1. Where is my tracking number?We shift fast, instead of slowing down the process to set up tracking.  Since we ship quickly and by first class mail, you will NOT receive a tracking number from us.  Orders submitted Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ship out Monday morning from Colorado.  If you selected Priority Mail, please contact us if you do not see your order within 5 business days.
  2. Where are my plans?  We ship orders out fast!  You should expect to see the plans arrive within the U.S by 10 days, or within 5 days if you selected Priority Mail. 
  3. Why is interational shipping so slow?  We're not entirely sure why, but international orders now take up to 28 days to arrive.  We apologize for this inconvenience. 
  4. Will you sell me the plans electronically or send a pdf:  For most all plans we only sell plans that are already printed, and there are many reasons. First and most important, these patterns are old world craftsmanship. Each plan is hand designed with no automated tools since that would lose a degree of artistry behind the designs and not fit with our approach to quality.  Second, we believe it is more convenient for the customer to use full size patterns wherever possible.  These patterns are on large sheets of paper that come from a printing press, and your home office printer wouldn't be able to do the job even if we decided to sell electronic copies.
  5. What is your phone number?  We don't have a phone, but it is efficient to email us for a timely reply.  We're just too small of a business to staff a phone line.
  6. I can't find the right wood at the store: For the adirondack style plans, all are designed to use materials commonly found at lumber stores for building decks on houses. This is intended to save you cost, and for high availability. Unfortunately, at times supply runs low and it becomes harder for people to find Western Red Cedar. You can usually order lumber in, but first stop and ask the person at the counter where deck builders are buying their lumber from. Sometimes you'll find there is a specialty store that specializes in only selling deck building materials, and if so that may be why your local lumberyard isn't stocking as much. Another factor going on these days is that composite materials are becoming popular for building decks, and you may identify one you can use instead of real wood. As a purist, I used to recommend away from composites, but admittadly there are some really good ones out there that could be worth considering.
  7. What is included?:  You'll receive full-sized patterns you can easily snip out then trace onto wood for precise cuts. An exploded diagram, materials list, and several pages of detailed instructions are included. A layout grid is not included because it's better to find the grain and quality of lumber at every section, rather than be influenced to include all sections of wood to satisfy a pre-set layout scheme, regardless of a section's desirability. For this reason, our instructions call for about 10% extra lumber, and so you won't need to purchase more lumber than called for in the instructions, as the amount allows for some defects in the wood.
  8. How do I...? Think for a few minutes, or if all else fails read the instructions. :-) We can provide patterns but we can't help you build it.
  9. I'm having trouble finding the Stainless Steel screws.  You might want to check Home Depot first because they carry an outstanding product brand "Grip-Rite Primeguard Max".  They typically have 5/8" available at reasonable prices. In case they ever stop carrying them here is more information on the product (and someone please email me to update the website if that happens): The UPC on the box is 7 64666 62689 8 and product item name on the box is MAXS62689 PRIMEGUARD MAX STAINLESS which might help with internet searching, and the websites are www.primesourcebp.com and www.grip-rite.com . The great part about these are they are self-tapping, which really helps a lot, and each box comes with a new driver tip so youíre not having to buy those.  It's also worth noting you could do much of the chair with 2 inch, but these shorter ones are indicated by the directions primarily for putting on the back slats so they donít go through their holder, then at the front curve of the seat to keep from shattering the wood, which could be alleviated by pre-drilling holes.  

We hope that you are our next happy customer and so let us know how things went. To give comments, feedback and suggestions, email: support@furnitureden.com 
Thanks!
