  • From Alan Weir on Jewellery Tray with optional phone stand

    I have been a fan of wood as a decorative medium for decades and this struck me as a perfectly executed commission. Tim made the right choice for the oak and for the font and decoration to set that off. At our request he added a recess in the bowl’s base for a silver coin to mark our very unique daughter’s graduation. The result looks like it will outlive us all. How often can you say that of a present these days?

    Fantastic product and service from Tim. He was very helpful in trying to get the tea light holder to me asap as i had come across this website for a late wedding gift. Very happy I did.

  • From Kym on Jewellery Tray with optional phone stand

    Tim is amazing and created a bespoke gift for me. I was initially worried about ordering as I didn’t know what the message would turn out like, but as it happened, Tim contacted me himself almost immediately and showed me a picture of the possible design and message. Tim was very patient with me through some minor changes and he also suggested improvements on the design, eventually creating a truly memorable gift. I will definitely be returning if I need another special gift!

  • From Mitsuka on Jewellery Tray - Oak Bowl, End Grain, Four-Pointed

    What a beautiful piece of work, he is a genius. Instead of two letters initial, we ordered both of our first name plus family name. Right after I placed inquiry I heard from the shop owner to discuss the details. We explained the story behind the order and he came up with several design ideas which we both love. Very professional devoted work, quick delivery. I will recommend the shop to absolutely everyone!

    I ordered the Jewellery Tray as a birthday present for my Sister. There was a slight issue with the initial design but Tim has been so very helpful in sorting this problem.

  • From Naima on Phone Stand Charging Point with Desk Tidy Bowls

    I got in touch with Tim via phone and then email for this product for my husband as an anniversary present. To say he outdid himself, is an understatement! I had the product design slightly altered but to perfection.. 🙂
    The engraving was redesigned to something better than i could have even imagined it to be like..! Emails and replies were prompt, informative and with attention given to every little detail and I was given the best option for it to be sent all to Zambia way before expected with a personal touch!!! I have received an absolutely stunning solid piece of art id say, and I cannot thank Tim enough for this..! I will most definitely be buying something again from him in the near future.. You wont be disappointed, i surely wasn’t at all!!
    Thank you once again Tim.. x

    I really cannot put into words how happy I am with the service received and my wonderful destinations sign. After searching to try and find someone to do this for me via social media I managed to find and how thankful I am. Tim has created a real work of art that has managed to capture the fun side to all the destinations I have visited with my husband and this sign is to mark our anniversary. It is of fantastic quality, perfect craftsmanship so a huge thank you.

    The tealight holder I ordered is absolutely beautiful and I’m sure that the recipients will be thoroughly delighted. Brilliant service with the item personalised in exactly the way that I had asked. Upon completion Tim sent me a photo of the holder and even asked if he could deliver the item personally as he was going to be in the area! Couldn’t as for more! If you’re considering ordering from Tim’s site, do it – you won’t be disappointed!

  • From Mrs R Elliott on Wooden Letters - Add names, Dates, images etc.

    Stunning piece of work! Grand job! So happy I shopped around and found such a skilled craftsman. We recently ordered a letter G to mark a special, yet sad, occasion in our lives; Tim couldn’t have been more helpful, honest and attentive during our communication; after we spoke over the phone ref ideas, he promptly sent a couple of visuals which were both fantastic. Tim kept in touch with us throughout the process, sending photos of the letter at its final stages and letting us know after he dispatched the goods too.
    The letter is just out of this worls! Just so beautiful, and so very special to my husband and I. I will definitely be a returning customer, and I have recommended Tim’s business to all my friends and family.

  • From Beau on Phone Stand Charging Point with Desk Tidy Bowls

  • From Samantha Tempest on Phone Stand Charging Point with Desk Tidy Bowls

    What fabulous craftmanship! Tim I can not thank you enough! Both myself and my husband are over the moon with this product. Such a high quality product and service!! Tim communicated with me throughout the design process to ensure that what I had requested was correct. (The gap to fit a mobile phone in needed to be a little wider due to the phone having a rather bulky case.) This is my first purchase for Tim and I will definitely be using him again! Highly Recommend!

  • From Faye McConnell on Phone Stand Charging Point with Desk Tidy Bowls

    Such a lovely piece of woodwork… Fabulous attention to detail and quick personal service. A very quick response from start to finish including the postal service.

I know he will be thrilled – Thank you for such a perfect service !

  • From Sophieellice on Wooden Signs - Complete Personalisation Freedom

    If I could give 6 stars I would, if you are looking for something personalised (even just a vague idea like I had) do not hesitate to contact Tim! I could not be more happy with my purchase; Tim always replies quickly and was happy to discuss what I wanted in depth, giving visuals of each idea I had and made sure I was 100% satisfied The work was done very promptly and shipped quickly and when it arrived I was speechless at how good the finished product looked, so much care and attention gone into each detail . A gift I cannot wait to give. I would not hesitate again to buy from Tim and look forward to when I next do.

  • From Rebecca CT on Personalised Carving Board - Double Sided

    It was probably my best online experience shopping at buywoodengifts. Tim responded within a few hours of me ordering the carving board with his suggestions for the engraving. He knew what looks best and he was totally right! He was great at communicating when the item would be ready and helped so much with my decision. This item was a wedding gift, and the bride and groom absolutely love it! I will definitely buy again from Tim. It was so lovely to buy a gift for someone knowing that it had been handmade with such care. Tim clearly is very passionate about what he does and it shows in the end finish of the product. Thank you!

  • From BFHuston on Personalised Carving Board - Double Sided

    This carving board turned out perfect…I couldn’t be more satisfied with it. It is truly an impressive board. I don’t have a lot of kitchen storage so I can flip it over to the flat side and leave it out on my counter. Needless to say, I’ve received a lot of compliments. That’s not surprising considering it’s incredible looking, not to mention much cheaper than store bought boards. If you’re in the market for a solid board, I highly recommend this one. BTW, the grooves are perfect for capturing juices while carving/cutting and the cup makes it perfect to transfer back into a pan to make a great sauce.
