Dear Ben,

Our beautiful oak toy box for Emma arrived this afternoon – to say we are pleased with it is an understatement.

On opening up the transit case , which in itself was a piece of engineering, the aroma of oak was delightful, and then  – WOW – the box itself!

Emma’s name carved into the front face, the grains, and colours of the wood – stunning. The dovetail joints of the corners, and then the lid with the elegant slow close hinges.

Your craftsmanship is superb ,and my wife and I are thoroughly delighted with what will become a family heirloom for sure. We are pleased to tell you that we are expecting to become grandparents again, so order No.2 will be on it’s way sometime next year, all being well.

If anybody is considering buying a box from Ben – my advice is to go for it  – you will not be disappointed – in fact you’ll be delighted!

Kind regards  – Katherine and Steve, Canterbury.

Hello Davina and Ben.

Well, my husband and I finally opened the toy boxes on Saturday night – and they are . . . absolutely perfect.

I can’t tell you how happy I am with the way they have turned out – I almost burst into tears, knowing that our children will take these gorgeous boxes and our love through life with them. Ben, I was a little worried about the size of the names on the front, because we didn’t 3D model it first, but you were right you do know what you are doing and the names are bang on the right size. Thank you so much for you time, love, interest and attention to detail that you have put into these incredible toy boxes.

Basically, I am over the moon. Thank you. Michelle

    We are so pleased with this purchase. This is an excellent well made toy box which looks great in both lounge and bedroom. The “hold anywhere hinges” are excellent so no trapped fingers. This is the third product we have bought from this company and once again we are delighted.

    We ordered the toy box, not for storing toys, but to commemorate our golden wedding. Upon receipt of the order the company immediately telephoned to ensure that they had accurately understood our requirement. We were kept informed of progress and the box was delivered six weeks later.
    The box is made of high quality seasoned oak, sanded and oiled to a smooth finish. All the joints are totally precise and if one runs a finger along the dovetails it is hard to detect the presence of the counter grain. The engraving is also finely chiselled and crisp. Most importantly it is a capacious chest which looks good among the other furniture. Even the packing case was made to a fine tolerance which ensured the safe delivery of the order. For quality craftsmanship and materials with efficient service the price asked was not unreasonable

    Best regards

    We wanted to buy our daughter a beautiful present for her christening which she could keep for years to come. Thanks to “make me something special” her personalised oak toy box really is the perfect gift.

    The quality of the toy box is absolutely fantastic and the design which has been engraved onto the lid is incredibly impressive and very special to us. We really wanted some bows on the lid that looked like they were tied with ribbons. The team were more than happy to help us with our request and the finished engraving is more beautiful than we imagined.

    From beginning to end the service has been incredible and I have never before experienced such wonderful customer service, always very helpful with nothing being too much trouble, quick to reply to emails and great at keeping us updated on the progress of the toy box.

    We couldn’t be happier with Rosie’s toy box and we are very thankful to everyone at “make me something special”. If you want a fabulous present for someone special – look no further!

    Thanks again,

    April and Garreth

    I want to send a really big thank you for the quality of your service and the remarkable quality of your product. We were looking for a lifetime gift for newly arrived grandson, George. The beautiful toybox, constructed to highest standard, with fine finishing, detailing and engraving perfectly fitted our needs.
    The intriguing question is the variety of functions it will fulfil over time as this beautiful object will last and last ! How refreshing these days to find an object truly built to endure.
    Again we are most grateful for your craft.

    Many thanks.

    Hello Ben.

    I wanted to finally email you and thank you for Jasmines toy box which is beautiful and the Christmas boxes
    that you make for my entire family.

    They arrived in time for the packers to pack us off to Australia (yes, it is as fabulous as everyone says.)

    Now, I am here there are a thousand other things I would have liked to buy, so I suspect you won’t have heard
    the last of me.

    Many thanks
