First, is to place your order, or QUOTE ORDER on our website at this page https://www.arnev.com/send-us-your-wood-for-your-switch-plate-covers.html, so we can see what you need us to make for the wood you are sending to us. Then we will email you how much wood is needed for the order.
We manufacture the USA Electrical Standard Decora or GF opening of 1-5/16" wide, by 2-5/8" High, so please make sure of your measurements before we start.
Wood requirements for us to manufacture for you
1. You will need a min. 48" long by 6" inches wide.
2. Your wood must be a minimum of 3/4 thick by 6" wide, and if it is 1" by 6" wide, that is even better to make sure the wood switch plates are completely stable.
FYI: All the wood we stock is 7/8 to 1" thick and we resaw it and get 2 boards.
3. You need to place a confirmed order or a quote order, WE WILL TELL YOU HOW MANY BOARD FEET WE WILL NEED TO MANUFACTURE YOUR ORDER.
4. Once we know what you need us to make, we will call you and give you all the information, and we will also send you an email to the email address you supplied with your order. Also, we will send the addresses where to send the wood, and we have two wood shops that we have set up in the USA, one for switch plates with screws, and one with only screwless, so see the addresses below.
Note: Please do not send the wood to our corporate office in Wisconsin.

This image was from a satisfied customer as we used their wood to make this switch plate cover for the beautiful side of the kitchen island:
This is the size of the USA Standard Decora opening size which we have been making for years.
Recently some companies have made much larger Decora Switches, Rockers, Dimmers, and Duplex Decora Receptacles.
They force you into buying and using their plastic switch plate covers.
We can make the opening to fit these larger sizes, but there is an extra charge for these new sizes from Hubbell, Lutron, Leviton, and others.
So please check your measurements, and we need to know if you are using some of these larger devices before we start to manufacture your wooden switch plate covers
These are the available styles:
We also offer Cat 5-6. Telephone, Cable TV, and many other low voltage switch plates.
You will need to call 800-260-1181 for sending your wood for manufacturing.
All wood sizes are about 1/4 inch thick, much like a regular plastic switchplate.
So check below for the overall size of each switch plate.
