Terms & Conditions


We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for all orders above $5,000. Orders below $5,000 are required to be paid in full. Production begins upon receipt of payment and a signed approval of all order details. The final balance is due when production is complete, and the product will ship once the final balance is paid in full. 

We accept credit card, wire transfer, and check. Please make checks payable to Richard Watson and send to:

Richard Watson

Because our work is made to order, we are not able to accept returns or exchanges. Orders cancelled prior to production are subject to a 10% cancellation fee. If production has begun, cancellations cannot be accepted.

Lead Time

Our lead times vary but are typically 12-14 weeks for made-to-order pieces, and 3-4 weeks for in stock items. Custom and contract orders may require longer lead times depending on the order complexity. Lead time begins with receipt of payment and signed approval of all order details.

Rush Orders

We will do everything we can to accommodate a rush order and will assess on a case by case basis. Rush orders require an additional fee of 15%. 


Shipping is arranged through Richard Watson unless otherwise specified. We require payment in full before any shipment is released for final delivery. Clients are responsible for verifying field measurements and confirming that pieces fit through doors, elevators, stairways, hallways and around corners.

Storage Policy

We offer 14 days of storage gratis upon completion of the order. After 14 days, there will be a $25 storage fee per day.

Please provide photos of the damage and any packaging if applicable. We cannot be responsible for damages reported outside of 24 hours of delivery.
