Our most important material is wood. As prefabricated plywoods or freshly cut from a tree, we shape birch, beech, cherry, bamboo, maple and others with a carving knife by hand, or with the use of modern cnc-technology.
Good things made from wood are sustainable and aesthetic, especially when passed on through generations of users.
In a small workshop in Berlin (Wedding) we puzzle over the design and production methods of our assortment. Things have to be really practical. But they also need an appealing shape, material & surface. Eventually they have to be profitable. We achieve this with a fair, regional & ecological small scale production. For the acces to cnc-machines we have a membership at the community workshop "Happylab"

Maintenance Tips for Wooden Products
To take care of scratches, spots or dirt, you can normally sand down a wooden object, and seal it afterwards wth a good wood oil. We use the "Hartöl Nr. 126 - AURO" a natural, robust oil that with 1-3 layers, protects things very well.
Just rub it in with a piece of textile, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, and then take of the rest. Each layer should be drying for atleast 24 hours. The smell and the "taste" of the oil will disappear within a couple of days. Things that get in contact with water alot, like spoons & cuttingboards, deserve a new layer every 6 to 24 months.
If its not in a constantly wet environment, wood is actually a really hygienic material. Studys have shown that on plastic cuttingboards the contamination with germs is higher, than on wooden ones. Especially pine, larch & oak show antibacterial effects.
Wood is a breathing material, that can handle frequent moistness quite good actually. Objects that are well sealed can be cleaned with a sponge and dish-liquid, or with a wet rag. Just make sure to put it in a proper place afterwards, where it can dry out completely.
Please dont put anything wooden in there! The heat and moistness of the cleaning process can damage overall stability, surface and glued joints.
For a defect of no fault - if something doesnt work like its supposed to, you have the right for an equivalent replacement. If we dont produce it anymore, you have the right for a full refund. In that case please send us fotos and short explanation and we will take care of it.
For a defect of part fault - for example if you step on a wooden spoon, and it directly breaks. A good spoon should be able to withstand these kind of forces, though the customer should be able to take better care of his things. So if something breaks up and you feel like "thats not just my fault" send us a mail with fotos and a description and we´ll take care of it.
For a defect of own fault - if something breaks up and its obviously not a matter of product quality, but of careless treatment. You can still send us fotos and a short text, and you´ll get a 25 % discount on an equivalent product.
The conditions of warranty we´ve also written down in our Terms . To be sure about it you can download them, though they are in german language. The accountability for "defects of no fault" will be, in case of a termination of the company Amos Holzprodukte , transferred to the owner
Johan Katzenberger .
