Some products are considered to be hazardous and should be kept away from children at all times and the user of the product should follow the guidelines on the packaging regarding correct use, and the use of personal protection equipment. We cannot be held liable for improper use of any of the products.
Items of merchandise are printed to order and dispatched directly to you from there. Shipping costs for merchandise may be calculated separately from regular shipping costs.
As far as is possible, products images are colour corrected for accurate rendition on your viewing device. However, given variances beyond our control, the colour of the item you receive may differ from that seen on screen.

Backordered Products

Some products on this website may occasionally show as ‘On Backorder’. This means we do not have stock at present but will order the product(s) in specially for you. As such, this requires payment at the time of ordering. The length of time this takes is generally not more than two weeks any usually for more expensive items, but is not limited to this.

Orders containing backordered products will be held back until the backordered item arrives, after which the whole order will be sent. If you would like the order split, shipping costs will apply for the items in the order to be sent ahead of the backordered item.

Bookings for group courses are paid at the time of booking and subject to a minimum of FOUR student bookings in order to run. You are welcome to book a single place on any of the group courses and join others who are booked on. However, we reserve the right to change your booking to another suitable date if the minimum required number is not reached 7 days in advance of the date booked. Should this occur, we will contact you with alternative dates. If a convenient date cannot be agreed upon, we will be happy to refund your booking fee or offer you shop credit to use at your leisure in the shop..

Bookings for 1-1 tuition are to be made using the booking facilities at www.thewoodturningshop.com. This ensures you receive the necessary emails and information pertinent to your booking.
