Every product we make is made to order, and made by hand in our Pittsburgh PA wood shop. Watch how we make them here! This is a time intensive process, and we artfully craft items without compromise. If you are in a hurry, and need a product immediately - please reach out to us to check available back stock, or consider an alternative product.


KerfCase ships worldwide using the United States Postal Service and FedEx where applicable. We currently offer express or expedited services which can be selected during checkout. All orders over $100 are eligible for USPS First Class for free when sent domestically and include a tracking number.

Every product is custom made to order. It's more sustainable than stocking an inventory of finished items. Once you place your order, we make your product from raw materials. This process takes between 5-15 business days.

When your case is ready to ship, it should arrive within 2-4 business days within the U.S. after your shipping confirmation email is sent (with the exception of some remote locations).  Please note that it may take up to 3 weeks after your order confirmation for your shipment confirmation to be sent, since all of our items are made to order. 

We offer Priority Mail Express for expedited shipping for.  This shipping service is either next day or within 2 days, depending on your location.  Please contact us for a detailed estimate.



KerfCase offers several paid shipping services. For items which are shipped with a paid shipping service, refunds will not be given for shipping costs for returned or exchanged items, unless the return is due to a manufacturing defect. Please see our policies for returns below.


KerfCase offers two international shipping options: US Postal Service and FedEx. For the best experience, we recommend FedEx; the tracking is much more detailed and it is easy for us to locate and refund missing packages.  USPS is less expensive, but we have no recourse if a package goes missing and cannot offer a refund if your package is lost. Shipping cost varies based on your total cart price. For faster service and a trackable package, we recommend FedEx.

For all orders shipped outside the United States, the customer is responsible for all taxes and duties imposed by their country for imports.  Since these fees vary from country to country, we cannot estimate them on our website.  Please refer to your government’s importing guidelines for an estimate of what you will owe in taxes and duties, and factor that amount into your purchase budget.


Missing packages

KerfCase is not responsible for missing packages, and cannot offer a refund if a package is lost in transit.  Customers are encouraged to contact their local post office or shipment provider and follow their lost package procedures to recover their package.  Premium shipping options, such as USPS Priority Express and FedEx Express, offer insurance for missing packages, please contact us if you wish to file a claim.

To be eligible for a return or exchange, you (must email us first) [] and your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.  We strongly recommend using the original packaging for the return, or that it is otherwise very well protected; we cannot offer a refund if the product is damaged during its return trip.
