Elbin Art announces a new page called Elbin Art Select. The Elbin Art Select page is products where only quantity (1) one is available and if ordered, you get the exact product as shown. Once it is purchased, it will no longer be available however similar style products are available for order however the wood grain patterns will be different than the one shown. While the photo may show up in the store under a general sample photo for a particular product, it would only be a sample product and the product in the sample sample photo is sold on the Elbin Art Select page ONLY. Again, there is only one available on the product with the exact grain pattern shown as all pieces of wood have different and unique grain patterns. Once it is sold, it is no longer available.

Effective April 30th, 2022, Elbin Art will be offering cheese serving boards and cheese slicer boards made from Italian Olive Wood. During the development of the products, Elbin decided to start using Howards Products for conditioning and finishing of these two particular products. Howard Cutting Board Oil and the Howard Cutting Board Conditioner are applied to these products for seasoning & conditioning. This enables an Elbin Art customer to source the Howard Cutting Board Conditioner locally in most cases so that they may condition and maintain these two products on a regular basis to rejuvenate the wood and prevent drying.
While Elbin Art started out utilizing mostly whiskey and wine barrel staves for products, Elbin decided to develop other products that do not incorporate a barrel stave. In keeping with the theme of beautiful Oak, which is what a lot of barrel staves are made of, Elbin Art is now making products from quarter sawn American White Oak lumber and quarter sawn European Oak lumber. Elbin personally selects the American White Oak from a couple wood vendors in the US and personally selects the Imported European Oak from one particular wood vender in the US. After carefully selecting the raw wood boards, the boards are then shaped, sanded numerous times, stained and coated to make for a beautiful and functional display piece.

Product review just added to each product listing. Since this was just added, reviews for previous sales do not show up here. If a product is ordered at art show, festival, etc., those reviews do not show up. This is only for products should through the website AND if the customer elects to leave a review.
In the past, Elbin would use finished wood that was available at local home improvement stores for the handles and pads on servers as well as shelves on pieces. Many times it would be red oak as white oak would not be available. The staves used for his pieces are typically white oak so when the shelves, pads and handles were stained, there was a difference in color between them and the whiskey stave. Going forward, the handles, pads and shelves are all white oak. This requires more time to prepare pads and shelves as the white oak for them are selected from raw sawn lumber that is then planed down to the right thickness required for the pads and shelves. It is important to continue to perfect the pieces that Elbin makes so that the owner of the piece will have a product to enjoy for years.
Can I have any of the Elbin Art products personalized ?
The majority of the time the answer is yes however there are cases where I cannot - send me an email at email@example.com detailing what you are looking for.

Elbin Art is located in Powhatan, VA. There is no physical store. This is a small single person business by Elbin, Frank E Stone, who has a passion for woodworking art. Products are available through my store on this website and certain events where Elbin Art will have a booth (see events page).
I am not affiliated with a distillery or winery however would like a specific distillery/winery logo engraved or made from a Elbin Art product, can I get that done?
Maybe. I do not make a product with a distillery or winery's logo on it without getting their permission first. If you would like a specific distillery or winery's logo on a product, let me know which one and I will contact them for permission.

I am an owner of a distillery, restaurant or winery. On the Elbin Art Products that have an Elbin Art coin installed, can it be replaced with our own coin?
If you have your own company logo coin, depending on the size, yes it can. If you don't have your own company logo coin but are interested in having one made, contact Elbin@ElbinArt and we can discuss the options for this. We work with a particular manufacturer on the Elbin Art coin and the same manufacturer could make your own coin.
What is the lead time of your products?
It is dependent on how many orders are in house, quantity of the order, product ordered and amount of unfinished wood on hand to make the product. Please keep in mind that most of my products are made to order. Great care goes making each product. Each product is shaped sanded multiple times, some are stained, and coated to bring out the beauty of the wood and provide for longer life of the product. There is also a cure time for the stain and final coats. Typical lead time is 3-5 weeks depending on the product. Contact Elbin@elbinart.com if you have a specific product in mind and have a specific date you need the product to see if the product can be accommodated.
