What do you do?

Black Hills Woodworks is a built-to-order fabrication firm. Every product you see was custom-built in South Dakota using recycled materials.  The company has standardized an assortment of designs and sizes, which are encouraged to be inspiration for you. While we tend to use lumber salvaged from old buildings around South Dakota, we often find ourselves sourcing rough-cut lumber from local lumber mills. There are several local mills reclaiming trees that have fallen due to storm, age or city ordinance, and we're happy to be able to bring you pieces made from wood that would otherwise suffer the chainsaw.

Having said all that...

How long will it take to receive my order?

Each custom order has a 6-8 week production timeframe.

What are my options?

I offer 3 surface texture gradients, depending on how much of the inherent wood grain you want to feel: Old Surface (completely rough), Skip-Planed (mixture of texture and smooth), and Clean-Planed (completely smooth). 

All textures are sanded to ensure that you don't get any splinters. I currently offer 2 stain options: No Stain (au natural), and clear satin polyurethane. 

Is all of your reclaimed wood the same as pictured products?

No, each piece is custom and different. Due to the nature of reclaimed material, color, texture, and inherent character of wood, will vary. Cracks and knots are always present and should be expected. I accommodate customers' preferences, but I am not to be held responsible for nature's agenda.

Ponderosa Pine, one of the particular species I utilize, is native to the Black Hills. The cedar I use is a sustainably sourced wood.

Do you have CAD files or other resources for detailing the specs of the listed products?

No, I do not create renderings for projects.

What are my payment options?

I accept Venmo, Paypal, and dead presidents.

What is your return policy?

Given the process of custom orders, Black Hills Woodworks is not liable to offer a refund for custom furniture if the project has been started. If you have placed an order, but I have not started the order, I will return to you a full refund (minus a 10% return fee and any charges that I incurred during the process).
