Shipping Options:

No Peanuts– We realize that sometimes those little peanuts seem like more of a pest than an asset to your project. Eliminate the little guys by calling and requesting your item ship with No Peanuts! We’ll make sure there is no escaping foam when you open your next package from us.

Dry Pack– Wood is not a stable element, and sometimes changes in moisture can cause the product to crack.  This is one of the reasons we request that you inspect and finish the items immediately upon arrival.  If you also want to give them extra protection on the way, Dry Pack will add extra shrink wrap to help prevent cracking due to moisture change while in transit.

No Invoice/Packing Slip– Are you shipping your items to a finisher or customer? You may choose not to include a packing slip with your order. We can email you a copy of your invoice, and leave the packing slip out.

Installation:

Industrial Hanger Installation– Our corbels come standard with keyhole brackets for hanging. However, for some projects a stronger method of installation may be needed. For this reason, Osborne offers Industrial Hanger installation services. Our industrial hangers are part #955HW. For corbels with a back surface less than 11” one hanger is used. For a surface greater than 11” two hangers would be installed. The installation service charge is $10.00 per hanger, plus the cost of the hanger.

Install Bolt/Screw– Our Screw Dowels (Part 910HW or 916HW), or Hanger Bolts (Parts 920HW, 925HW, or 930HW) can all be installed in your product. Hardware will be installed in the top or bottom center of the product. There is an install charge of $1.75 per hardware installed plus the cost of the hardware.

Install Bolt/Screw in Chamfer– Hardware may also be installed in a chamfer. Our chamfer service is done to the top square of the leg. The width and height of the chamfer must be specified. Our standard chamfer is ¾” wide and 4” tall. Then, the hardware of your choice will be installed at a designated height in the chamfer. A distance from the top of the leg to the center of the bolt/screw must be specified. The hardware must be added to the order so that it may be installed in the leg. This service charge is $5.00 per item. 

Install Metal Keyhole Bracket– Corbels may be used in various projects. For some projects, you may need to flip the corbel and have keyhole brackets on what would originally be the top of the corbel. We can add keyhole brackets to the top of the corbel for you to assist you in completing your design. One to two brackets will be needed (depending on the depth of the corbel). The rule of thumb is that 1 bracket is used for corbels with a depth less than 8”. For a depth greater than 8”, two keyhole brackets will need to be installed. The cost is $5.00 per bracket.

Horizontal Keyhole – If a horizontal keyhole would be needed to install your corbels, we can cut a horizontal wooden keyhole in the back of the product. The back of the corbel must be at least 2 ¼” wide where the keyhole would be cut. The rule of thumb is that 1 keyhole is used for corbels with a depth less than 8”. For a depth greater than 8”, two keyholes will need to be cut.  The cost is $7.00 per keyhole.
