These handmade decorative bases for messages at home or work are 2" wide by 8.5" long. They are made from solid Alder with a lacquer finish so they will last for years. Bases are designed so messages can be slipped out and a new one put in whenever desired so only one base is needed unless you wish to put messages in other rooms or locations like work. If you want to add your own message, poem, thought or business sign we can engrave that for you as well. The normal size for the slot is 1/16" to hold the engraved plastic material the messages are made on but 3/32" or 1/8" wide slots can be cut also for other materials such as glass, etc. Some slot sizes can be cut with a slight till back if desired.

Bases are finished with polyurethane or lacquer finishes are used as a protective coating. These finishing materials are the type used in the furniture or craft industries and I rely on their guarantees for the safeness of their products. I try to use good judgement in selecting the materials and finishes I use in building my handcrafted items or products. Sheets of engraving plastic come finished so all I do to make it safe is smooth the edges and round the corners so the handler of the material isn’t cut by the plastic. I base my decisions on whether to use a material or not, on if it is safe and environmentally friendly. After reading the labels and literature available, if I feel that a material or design is unsafe I won’t use it or I will come up with a safe material or design. I am always looking to build a safer as well as a better quality product for you, your loved ones and friends! But due to the nature of the craft materials small size etc. there are risks involved with these items and care should be taken in storing and handling so as to avoid cuts and choking dangers.
