Commemorative hand-carved breadboards and wooden kitchenware


Here are a few testimonials from happy Customers

Hello Steve,
The breadboards just arrived in perfect condition--and they are simply beautiful. 

The exquisite wood grain is as striking as the pattern you see on the back of a violin or a really fancy guitar. I love the way the central round is distinctly raised above the border. The deep gutter for crumbs is a genius idea. And the carved wheat stalks are so graceful.

What more can I say? Aha! The heft of the boards is very satisfying.

Have a wonderful Christmas and count none but the happy hours in the New Year.
Thank you,

Ordered a house sign from Steve. Just what I wanted but better. What makes it more special is that he hand carved it and painted it to our specifications. He kept me updated through the whole process. Worth every penny, which wasn’t as much as I thought! Care and attention to detail too. I love it!

I have just received my house sign and I couldn't be more pleased. Steve gave me many designs to choose from and I am delighted with the one I chose. I live on the south coast of England and the sign arrived well wrapped and secure. I would highly recommend Steve a brilliant woodcarver so if you need a special gift go to The Woodcarver you will not be disappointed.

Jenny from Southampton.

Gave Jane the parcel on Saturday night and she opened it....and looked pleased...but then we saw she was looking at the carved back of the board. Stewart told her to turn it over - and she then burst into tears (and Stewart welled up too as Jane is one of his oldest and dearest friends). She just loved it, and was so thrilled - as was the whole party as she proudly showed it to one and all. I can't tell you how happy you made her. Thank you so much.
Next order will be through shortly!

Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for your prompt delivery of a very fine piece of work. I would like to recommend the idea of a wedding breadboard so beautifully constructed.
My son and his wife to be are combining two households; others are starting from scratch. Either way, this is a lovely and valued commemoration of the event.

Dear Steve,
I received the breadboard in plenty of time for my anniversary date as promised. I would like to say a special thank you to you for the efficient service but most of all for the fantastic breadboard. The craftmanship that has gone into this is magnificant. The quality and overall presentation is the best I have seen for a very long time. I can tell you have spent a lot of effort and time producing this lovely gift. My wife loved the present - something we can keep for a very very long time.
I will recommend you to my friends and family - however the workmanship speaks for itself.
Thanks once again.


Dear Steve,

The breadboard is an absolutely wonderful piece of craftsmanship – thank you so much. The recipients were thrilled. We will be back to you for more things soon, I’ve no doubt.

Dear Steve, my board arrived yesterday (The Court House) and I'm thrilled with it.The wood itself is so beautiful, and your carving without compare.

The whole is a magnificent object that I can't wait to present to my brother and his wife when they move into their house.

A very big "thankyou" for making something of such simple beauty.

With very best wishes


Thank you so much for the Cheeseboard which arrived this morning – well wrapped and protected. We bought it as a wedding present for our daughter, (who has married a Scotsman) and it really is the most delightful gift. We will have every bit as much pleasure in giving it to her as she and her husband will using it for years, and I hope, generations to come. Beautifully carved and finished – you have done a great job. Thank you.

Got the breadboard yesterday, it looks great, we are really pleased with it and it will make a very unusual and special 50th wedding anniversary gift for my in-laws!
Many thanks



Dear Steve,

Thank you very much indeed for the breadboard which arrived on Monday. It is a delightful piece of outstanding quality. I am looking forward to giving it to my in-laws as a gift for their ruby wedding. I am sure they will be just as delighted with the board as I am. I can understand why your order book is often full for the month ahead!

Thanks again


Dear Steve

Thank you very much; it was really worth waiting for.


Sorry it's taken me so long to reply.
I had a phone call from my Aunt Gill last week, who explained that her mystery present had been delivered.



Have received the board, and very pleased with the result. Many Thanks,


Just a note to say thank you so much for the beautiful bread boards that you carved for me. They really are wonderful and the craftsmanship and quality is the best. I know that my friends are going to love their special gifts.
