Are our products safe to take overseas?
Yes, the timbers we use are safe to send or take overseas because they have been processed and sealed. In fact our products are designed to be lightweight and easy to carry or post making them an ideal gift.
What happens if liquid is spilled on our products?
All of our timbers have been sealed and varnished, which helps protect them from water marking or staining. We recommend the occasional application of a vegetable oil to help protect the timber.
What timbers do we use?
We use several species of sustainably harvested Australian timbers,
including Blackwood, Tasmanian Oak, Jarrah and Myrtle. We aim to
pack orders with a variety of timbers. Every effort is made to ensure
the wood we use is from reputable sources where programs are in
place to reduce impact on the environment. We use veneers and not
solid timber to extend the life of the tree.
It is important to remember that the same timber can vary from tree to tree in grain, texture and colour.
Are our products really made and designed in Australia?
Yes! Buttonworks is family owned and operated and our products are
made in Australia! We design, cut, assemble and package all of our
products in our home studio on the Mornington Peninsula, across the
bay from Melbourne. We are committed to using Australian suppliers
and where possible, source recycled and local materials. Buttonworks
is registered with the Australian Made, Australian Grown Campaign,
and is licensed to use the Australian Made logo on our products.
