Ever had a day in the kitchen where nothing goes to plan?
A cookbook is something you often need beside you when following a recipe, preparing food or baking. Having used a traditional cookery bookstand for years, I have found the design to be flawed. Some bookstands are either too bulky and take up too much on your valuable countertop space, or unsteady and only work with small or light recipe books.
Once the book of your choice is in position, the spine has to be squeezed open to keep it in the right place or the pages have to be held in place by a wooden peg or the use of metal pressure clips or weighted strings that cover up the wording and can damage the book.
For a long time, we have been asked to create a good quality personalised wooden cookery bookstand by customers because they haven’t been able to find anything they like on the market. Frustratingly, we have had to decline, simply because we couldn’t come up with anything that we felt worked well enough and had no restrictions.
Many years of designing and planning, that eureka moment happened! This is our new and unique design, a sturdy and durable, yet slender personalised wooden bookstand that will easily accommodate either paperback or hardback books, half or full-page cookbooks or anything else in your cookbook collection, no matter if it is a new or very old and beloved recipe book. Handcrafted from locally sourced Superior Grade English Oak, our bookstands are of the finest quality.
These unique wooden bookstands featuring a perfectly shaped book holder this elegant bookstand will position your cookbook at just the right angle and will be held in place by a perspex page guard, no matter what page you want. And the best thing is, you can read every word from top to bottom. If you are looking for the perfect gift for that special person who loves to cook or bake, this beautiful personalised oak recipe bookstand is absolutely stunning in every way.
These personalised wooden bookstands make the perfect gift for Christmas, 5th wedding anniversaries, weddings, birthdays or just because you need a good quality bookstand for your kitchen.
This fabulous bookstand comes in 2 standard sizes, Small & Large. The difference being the large stand features a taller backrest, ideal for those really heavy hardback books or tall books up to A3 in size. If you are planning to use normal off the shelf books and cookery books between A5 and A4, the small is perfectly fine to use for these.
Our beautiful solid oak bookstands are available blank or personalised with words or letters of your choice. Up to 20 characters on the front face. You can also add carved hearts, stars and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs. Take a look at the options available to you – Engraving options.
We can also engrave a secret or personal message for you on the underside of your bookstand, making it that little bit extra special and unique to you. Something like a reading from your wedding day, a favourite poem or quote, something witty, your family favourite recipe or just something that’s a secret and you don’t want anyone else to see – but you know it’s there.
