How do you make a pedestal?

WW Pedestals engineers and manufactures its pedestals using advanced CNC equipment and lock-miter construction. Rectangular wood pedestals are fabricated using mill-veneered plywood panels that are stronger and more durable than veneered MDF panels. All materials used by WW Pedestals comply with strict California CARB requirements. All finishes are water-based, no solvent based finishes are used. The Laminate pedestal use the same construction methods as the wood pedestal except they are constructed from mill-pressed laminated particle board. Structural reinforcement is provided at the bottom of each pedestal to ensure continuing strength.

When FEDEX overnight is requested will my pedestal ship the next day?

Specifying overnight shipment by FEDEX does not change the time required to manufacture your pedestals.  Designating overnight delivery means that the pedestal will be delivered by FEDEX using their overnight service, it will still take approximately 4 days to manufacture the pedestal.

 

What if I need a special size?

Since everything we manufacture is built-to-order, WW Pedestals gladly accepts custom size requests without increasing production times or adding significant cost.

What if I need a special color or stain?

WW Pedestals can usually match paint colors to our lacquer acrylic coatings . Please provide us with the manufacturer name and color deck number so that we can determine if we can match the color.  Matching stains and dyes is more probematic because the color of a stained or dyed wood veneer surface varies depending upon the wood grain, underlying wood color and type of stain or dye (water versus solvent).  Accordingly, WW Pedestals is willing, on a case by case basis, to apply commercially available stains specified by the customer with the understanding that WW Pedestals is only responsible for applying the stain in accordance with the manufuacturers instructions and that the customer will accept the resulting look and color produced.  

How do I care for my pedestals?

A Wood pedestal can be dusted with a soft cloth. Fingerprints and dirt can be removed using a non-abrasive damp cloth or sponge with a mixture of warm water with mild dishwashing soap such as Dawn. Do not use cleaners such as Pledge since they build up on the surface of the wood. Laminate pedestals can be cleaned using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and a mixture of mild dishwashing soap such as Dawn and water. Wood and laminate pedestals should be wiped dry after cleaning.

 

How do I care for my acrylic cover?

If your acrylic cover develops a small scratch, follow these instructions:

Purchase Nover #2 scratch remover, Sprayway 848 polisher and Kimwipe or micro fiber towels (do not use paper towels). These items can be found on the Internet.

STEP 1:  Apply Novus #2 scratch remover to the area around the scratch and use the Kimwipes or micro fiber towel to work the materital.  This is a polishing agent so do not apply pressure, you are just moving the material around the scratch and letting the scratch remover do its job.  You may have to repeat the process several times.  When the scratch is removed, go to step 2.

STEP 2:  After using the scratch remover, spray on the Sprayway 848 polisher and polish using either a Kimwipe or micro fiber towel.  You may have to repeat this porcess until you are satisfied.

NOTE: This process will not work on deep scratches.

Do you have any polices regarding order cancellation, product returns, warranty and safety?
