Designer creators of beautiful bespoke laser-cut and etched objects in wood, leather, cork, perspex, card, glass, slate etc.

We design and make things for everyone – from individuals wanting bespoke items such as slates etched with images of pets, to unique wooden business cards. Most of our customers are businesses needing bespoke items in limited numbers, but we work with a lot of individuals as well.

Our customers include guitar makers, consultants, churches, resource centres, theatres, schools, shops, tutors, furniture makers, knitters, groups, pubs, restaurants, cafes, football clubs and manufacturers.

What do we design and make? A wide variety from Incredibly intricate and beautiful wooden crucifixes made only of the words of the Lord’s Prayer (all recognised versions) 23rd Psalm etc. These we also feature in our sister site www.christiancrafts.org .
Bespoke company coasters (much better than a Christmas cards - your contact detail stays on their desk for ages, not binned by new year...) For the same reason bespoke coasters also make great promotional / exhibition gifts. “Round Tuits” (go on ask me – you know you want to…) Wooden Business Cards, Keyrings, Stencils, Signs, Slate pictures… The Website www.handytech.org and FaceBook page (needs an update!) @handytechkeith have lots of photo's of the stuff I remembered to photograph before shipping it to clients...

If you are looking for that special something for that special person; something you'll be proud to give and that they'll treasure forever, check us out.
