Ge. When a natural product such as oak is shipped it can on rare occasions, due to extreme weather conditions, be prone to slight swelling, this is normal and will settle in a short space of time, this normally affects drawers and doors and is not seen as a fault and a such is no reason to request a return or to refuse a delivery, in a few instances it may require you to swap doors or drawers around to rectify this or even a small amount of shaving, this will not alter the look of your item once a small of Danish oil is applied to the area, we also suggest this be done on a non visible edge.
