Elbin Art had a booth at the Powhatan Festival of the Grape event on 2 October and it was a great event. Beautiful weather and a great turnout for the event. Had some wonderful help with my wife and daughter assisting in setup before the event and breakdown after the event. Was very fortunate that my daughter also worked the event with me. On display at the Elbin Art booth was some existing products as well as some new products just recently introduced. Thank you to all who visited the booth and thank you very much for those that ordered an Elbin Art product. Go to event page to see photo of the booth as well as photos of new product introductions that were on display at the booth. The next event where there will be an Elbin Art booth is the Rassawek Autumn Festival. Go to event page to learn more. If you are looking for something special for the Christmas holiday, it is important to get your order in now as we are only talking about a couple months to make the product and ship it. Currently working on orders received at the Powhatan Festival of the Grape and anticipating orders from the 2 day Rassawek Autumn Festival as well as online orders so it will start to become difficult to fulfill orders before the holidays. Please keep in mind that it takes some time to manufacturer the product, including curing time of the stain and final protective coats. The product also needs to cure a minimum of 1 week (7 days) after the final coat and prior to shipping the product.
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 quarter sawn Oak, which is what a lot of barrel staves are made of, Elbin Art is now making products from quarter sawn American White Oak and quarter sawn European Oak boards. 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.
