Personalised Wooden Wall Height Charts

| 10th Apr

It is official!

You can now buy the original classic – the Make Me Something Special personalised wooden wall height chart.

We were the very first company to come up with this style of wall chart with engraved gauge lines and numbers along with family names carved at the top. We made it way back in 2000 when our first son was born. Everyone who ever saw it – wanted one!

There were only a few ever made for friends and family.

Making family growth was so important to us that simply wouldn’t be enough just to make markings on a door frame. We knew we weren’t going to be in our flat for long, so we wanted to make something which would grow with us and also be able to take with us where ever we went.

Many years and house moves later the original old chart was lost during a house move whilst in the care of our removal men – never saw it again. However, since that time we had number two and number three child who needed their heights logged on a height chart and the hardest thing is when you’ve had something as beautiful as this you can’t replace it with a sticker or painted canvas version. There was nothing for it – I had to make another one!

I planned to, as you do, but as with life, you never find the time. Davina had been nagging me for years to make a new one…  Then strangely, we were exhibiting at Country living show, Islington, London where a woman, ironically, came to the stand and asked – “Can you make me an oak height chart?”

She said she wanted one specially made to fit a specific place in her house, it had to be made to very precise measurements and couldn’t find anyone who could do it.

It’s funny how these thing work out – have you heard of the law of attraction?

So there you have it, Davina and the Russell Family got their new personalised wooden wall height charts and are now available to buy on our website. Each one is hand craved from only the very finest English Oak and comes with Imperial and Metric scales carved on either side with plenty of room for family names at the top. We have set 30 characters but if you need more – you can have more – we don’t mind.

I will tell you one thing though, about our engraved oak measuring wall recording charts…

They’re very special!

Here is a review we received very recently from our customer from the Country Living Show:

From discussing exactly what it was I wanted through to ensuring our order came through on time (early in fact!) and had been delivered safely, the customer service I received from ‘Make Me Something Special’ was excellent. It is a joy to have received something that clearly a lot of time and care went into.

We now have our family height chart in pride of place on our wall. The quality of the wood is excellent, the engraving perfect and it has been designed exactly to my specifications – this was something I had been unable to achieve anywhere else I looked and importantly the price was very reasonable in comparison too.

Thank you so much.
The Russell Family
