Order Process

If you are interested in working with Falling Leaf Woodworks on a piece of furniture or other project, the following will explain the typical process involved:

1. Choosing a Design:

Questions that will come up when discussing the design of your unique creation: what you would like made, what purpose do you want it to serve, where would you like to put it, what material would you like to have it made from, and what style will fit into your space and with your decor. Also, it can help to have a preliminary budget in mind, so options and designs can be curtailed to meet your needs.

If you would like a piece that Anthony has already designed or made, it is a simple discussion of how to personalize it (to fit space provided, etc...) and production can begin.


2. Material Selection:

Selecting material is a big part of making a piece of furniture special. Details such as type of wood and source of the material will be discussed. Depending on your wants, it can take some time to find material suited for your particular project. For example, if you choose to have a piece made from lumber cut from a living tree, there is a lag time of up to several months from the time the tree is cut to when I even see material for production to begin (the milling and drying process take time and shouldn't be rushed to produce high quality material).


3. Production:

Actual production time can vary depending on the complexity of the design and the backlog of orders I am currently working with.  I will do my best to give you an accurate timetable as to when I can begin your project and how long I expect it to take.  I will also keep you updated as to when I start as well as updates during production to keep you informed on how the project is proceeding.
