Made To Order Oak Gifts

Bespoke | 28th Jan

Over the years we are asked to make many unique, unusual and very special things.

Special commissions are something I think should be available everywhere but not everyone makes there own products, It’s funny, generally every product we have made in our range of personalised wooden gifts comes from Davina and I either wanting or needing something at home. But the point of bespoke products, stands to reason, as everyone is different and has different tastes and styles, as well as different needs for a product and in some cases they need a product to be smaller or larger to suit their home or surroundings – makes sense.

I do urge any customer who wants a product made to order/made to measure or something to their own design to contact us and talk about what they want. After all, these are luxury gifts and luxuries and not necessities – so be bold.

Let me share our latest commission.

This special order personalised oak wall plaque was commission by a lady for her and her husbands fifth wedding anniversary. It was made in the same way as our personalised chopping boards (three pieces of wood joined together) this is for added strength and durability except this particular board was made from English Oak. You are going to have to look hard to find the joins.

This is a really solid piece of wall art in oak. We engraved a poem, as requested, carving very small lettering in the oak, cutting each letter perfectly and consistently across the face using a very fine, custom made diamond cutter. It’s amazing, these letters are no bigger then 5mm tall and yet so clear to read even at a distance.

This means the oak has been cut in a very specific way to keep the oak as stable as possible even if it is exposed to moisture. It is very expensive and extremely high quality! If you see these blonde streaks in oak on the face edge – you know immediately this is very high quality, generally used by furniture makers.

It is a combination of machine and hand engraving, combined with very high quality timbers, skilled craftsmen and custom made cutters that give such spectacular results. Honestly if you really want to see if you are getting something very special take a good look at the images, we hide nothing and are proud of what we produce and it does show, especially at such a close distance.
