The woodshop does not stain or paint work produced in the shop. This process is too time consuming and it has been determined that it is not the best use of the facility, resources and woodshop staff. We will however, provide the finished work sanded and ready to be stained or painted.
The woodshop does not provide glass for frames. We will give you the correct measurements for ordering glass or acrylic. The woodshop does not provide hardware for frames or install glass, artwork or mounting hardware.
Please understand that it is difficult to give specific completion dates for projects. Given that this is an educational facility and not a commercial woodshop, our students are the number one priority. We will give you an approximation and do our best. Your patience is very much appreciated.
Depending on the size and scope of the project a 50% deposit may be requested with the balance expected upon completion.
Payment is made to Western Michigan University by check, cash, charge to employee/student account, or transfer of funds if work is for a unit within the university community.
The woodshop does not offer delivery.
