These wooden commemorative plaques are hand-made using some of the finest timber in the world. On top of that, the timbers are treated to withstand the harshest of British weather. So, you’re given the peace of mind that your wooden memorial plaque will maintain its quality.
Whatever kind of design you prefer – we can provide. From rustic oak memorial plaques or a traditional smooth edged grave markers. You even have the option to add images to your commemorative plaque – in either 2D or 3D.
Handcrafted from the world’s finest English Oak
These wooden memorial plaques are unlike any other plaques on the market. We use superior grade English Oak that’s been sustainably sourced from Amish sawmills, grown on english soil, managed on an english historic country estate for generations, then felled and sawn less than 25 miles away from your workshop.
The oak is picked by eye for its beauty and quarter sawn, before being hand-crafted in our workshop into a beautiful plaque. We then hand-sand it repeatedly and treat it for outdoor weather conditions.

High quality wooden memorial benches, built to last.
The wooden memorial benches at Make Me Something Special are made from 100% Teak. This tropical timber is perfect for crafting a garden memorial bench due to its resistance to harsh weather. When taken care of, a wood memorial bench made from Teak is likely to last upwards of 70 years.
These wooden commemorative benches are available with a 2 seater, 3 seater or 4 seater configuration. And, can of course be personalised with an engraving of your choice.
Personalising your memorial garden bench
When it comes to personalising your memorial garden bench, the options are almost limitless. Personalised engraved lettering on the top rail of the bench back comes includes in the price. This is perfect for names, dates, a favourite poem, quote or saying.
If you wish to personalise your memorial bench further, you can add more wording to the front panel, below the seat. There’s also room to personalise each of the upright panels making up the back of the memorial bench. So talk to us directly if you’d like to personalise your commemorative bench even more.
As well as text, you can also add carved symbols such as hearts, stars and even zodiac signs. These personalised memorial garden benches look fantastic with coordinates engraved. So if you can think of a very special place where memories were made, it’s a perfect way to cherish them.
Wood finish, maintenance and extra comfort options
Make Me Something Special’s memorial garden benches come without any finish as standard. This is due to the fact that Teak is a naturally oily timber, perfectly suited for outdoor conditions.
Your bench will fade to a pale silver colour in time if left untreated, so you do have the option to have it finished in Superior Grade Danish Oil. We also offer our Diamond-Coating finish for maximum protection.
You are also able to add fitted cushions with coloured covers to your bench. These cushions are the perfect addition to making your personalised wooden memorial bench that extra bit comfy to sit on.
