Sarah cannot be held responsible for any cracking or warping of material due to age and natural drying out. Sarah goes to every effort to ensure that the wood used has been correctly dried out, however movement in solid wood cannot be prevented. Wood is an organic material and as such it is impossible to predict how it will age and any small cracks or shakes that appear after delivery do not constitute a fault in the product. Please follow advice on caring for your carving to reduce any warping. Sarah cannot be held responsible for any damage to the product, or personal injury, due to inappropriate storage, lack of oiling or incorrect fixing.
