Q & A - FAQS

Can my item be used outdoors?

Yes. The wood is bonded together with external grade glue between the ply's. It will hold up better over time if you also give it a spray clear coat. Stains and paint are a great addition too. Spray paint works best if you paint the item before you build it.

What kind of fuel does my Tabletop Fireplace use?

The kit is designed to work with a 2.6oz can of Sterno Gel Fuel. This should still be a fairly common item to source locally, but you can also purchase it from sites like Amazon. Once the small can is in place, you can then refill it as needed from any source of gel fuel.

My order says it was shipped, but tracking shows it hasn't left Nashville..

We typically purchase postage in advance of boxing, and shipping your item. Once it reaches the post office, tracking information will begin to update. There are times at peak busy seasons where this doesn't always go as smoothly. If you need specific information about your order, send a message from your order page directly. We can easily keep up with your details faster through Etsy.

I want to make an order, but can I just pick it up locally instead of shipping?

The best way to pick up items in the Nashville area is to drop by one of our booths at a local store. They are listed in the "Shop Local" section at the top.
