Frequently Asked Questions
What Kind of wood do you use for your furniture?
Our furniture is manufactured in Fredonia, Arizona and in China. All WorkBoxes and Ultimate SewingBoxes are made at our USA factory. Our USA factory uses CARB (California Air Resource Board) approved 3/4" manufactured wood with a melamine finish. No added formaldehyde. Using manufactured wood with melamine finish is very important to prevent warping and any panel size changes . For the many shelves we use, the main structure needs to be exact to secure a tight fit. Humid weather and other weather changes won't affect the shape of our furniture, similar to modern kitchen cabinets. The melamine finish is very easy to clean after crafting! Use Windex and a soft cloth to wipe away dirt and finger prints. Our USA factory manufactures **Knotty Alder doors from real wood, and white and black styles with Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and the highly sought after Rigid Thermofoil (RTF).
- What is RTF? It stands for Rigid Thermofoil. It is a very durable, low-maintenance material made to look like real wood, painted surfaces and more. Plastic-looking finishes are gone, replaced by wood grains and textures that are hard to distinguish from the real thing! They are longer lasting and easier to clean than ever! (Just soap and water)
- RTF doors and tables are very durable and will keep their color long after painted wood doors have started to fade. Resist Warping - Pristine vinyl-wrapped thermofoil doors and tables are less susceptible to humidity and warping than solid wood.
- Thermofoil doors and tables(on our Ultimate SewingBox) offer the bright, clean and freshly painted appearance without telltale brush strokes.
- Our surfaces save rainforests and use recycled wood chips for the component’s substrate.
Does my product come assembled?
No, all pieces come flat packed in order to avoid damages in shipping, make it easier to move into your home, and help you save money on shipping. It comes with detailed instructions to assist you in building your furniture. We are always open to improving instructions, helping our customers. Please call or email customer service if you have any questions or comments. (801-226-2686 M-F 9-5 MST)
Some of our furniture uses a patented locking dowel system in partnership with our friends at LockDowel. We also use a cam locking system for our WorkBox, Ultimate SewingBox, and Her HobbyBox. Building time is anywhere from 3-8 hours depending on experience.
Is there a warranty on the product?
Yes, up to a 1 year manufacturer's warranty from time of purchase. Subject to parts and/or shipping charges for replacement parts, if damages are outside of our 1-year manufacturer warranty.
How does my product ship?
All of our products come flat packed and will need to be assembled. They will be shipped by a 3rd party freight shipping company. Our shipping and delivery charges only cover CURBSIDE delivery. Accessories do not need a custom pallet to ship and shipping prices are also determined by weight and location.
For shipping to Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii please call Customer Service (801) 226-2686 for a detailed shipping quote.
Canada: We have a new website for Canada! www.theoriginalscrapbox.ca. A few of our furniture pieces are offered on this website. On our USA website shipping prices may go up or down. Please call after placing your order on the USA website for an exact quote. Call (801) 226-2686. You may be contacted if price changes, you have additional charges, or receive money back. Unfortunately, we do not ship internationally. However, if you live abroad and are able to arrange your own insured international freight shipping, we will gladly work with you.
Do you offer financing?
We have teamed up with Affirm to offer easy financing – without a catch. There are no gimmicks like deferred interest or hidden fees, so the total you see at checkout is always what you actually pay. Provide some basic information and get a real time decision to split your purchase into 3, 6, or 12 monthly payments with rates from 10-30% APR.
Does Affirm perform a credit check?
Affirm performs a “soft credit check” which will not affect your credit score! If you return to Affirm for future purchases, Affirm may run additional “soft credit checks.”
Why was I prompted to pay a down payment with a debit card?
Affirm tries hard to approve every purchase but sometimes can’t approve the full amount. When this happens, they provide a debit card down payment option so that you may still complete your purchase right away.
Why was I prompted for a checking account?
Affirm sometimes requires additional information to consider a credit application. Such information may include an active checking account, which helps Affirm verify your identity and your ability to repay the requested loan. If Affirm prompts you for this information but you are unable to provide it, Affirm will be unable to approve your credit application.
