Fabricated from select grade southern pine culled for aesthetic appearance and structural integrity.

Construction

Features full ⅜-inch thick side slats with ¾-inch thick end panels securely glued and nailed at all stress points.

Care and cleaning

Wipe clean with a dry cloth. Mars can be removed from the surface by using a white eraser. Those with a natural unfinished wood surface may also be lightly sanded.

Sustainability

Carpenter Core embraces the common sense approach to sustainability practiced by past generations. Our forefathers lived the concept of reduce, reuse, and repurpose long before they became marketing buzzwords. This is how we do it.

  • Reusable design - The nature of Carpenter Core products incentivize the end user to reuse or repurpose them as keepsake storage containers, reducing the pressure on our waste disposal and recycling infrastructure.
  • Responsibly sourced raw material - The southern pine timber Carpenter Core products are made of is locally sourced in our geographic region. It grows in abundance and is responsibly farmed, making it naturally renewable.
  • Minimal processing - Carpenter Core products are made of solid wood. Unlike plywood, particle board, paper, plastic, and cardboard, there is no raw material processing. This minimizes energy consumption, the introduction of chemical additives, and the resulting environmental consequences.
  • Zero impact packaging - Carpenter Core products are sold without consumer packaging and are shipped in boxes with no plastic or needless filler, eliminating the need for landfill disposal by the end user.
  • Responsible transport - Our products are only made available in the contiguous United States, eliminating the need for overseas transport via sea or air. Everything is shipped in bulk using the most efficient UPS Ground system, minimizing the impact of transport on our environment.
  • Naturally biodegradable - Being made of solid wood with no chemical additives, our products are naturally biodegradable. At the end of their useful lifecycle, they return harmlessly to the soil they came from.

Guarantee

Carpenter Core offers a comprehensive lifetime warranty on all of our products for indoor non-commercial use against structural integrity throughout the product's lifetime that is valid for the original customer.

Unless otherwise stated, our products are not intended to withstand user abuse or outdoor exposure. We do not warrant product finishes including natural, stain, paint, clear coat, or other finishes.

We care about your satisfaction. Should you experience any issue, simply contact us to make it right.
