Handmade Personalised Gifts

My name is John Cole, born in Chichester, West Sussex and still local! My wife Julie and I create handmade personalised gifts from wood and resin and sell locally and all over the world. These are ideal wooden ornaments for home and garden.

Each one is unique and made with love, care, and attention. You can buy our gifts direct from our website or you can order a bespoke carving made just for you.

Resin and Wood Bespoke Ornaments

Are you looking for an elegant and unique wooden sign for your house or company name? Or maybe a gift for a love one filled with colour and light – watch how the sun filters through the different colours!

We are so proud of what we have created. I have been working with wood for over 30 years and during the last two years we have worked together to master how to include resin into our designs. We are now skilled at creating beautiful designs and the coloured resin that we use creates stunning colours and reflections.

Tik Tok And You Tube

A few years ago, we were social media dinosaurs and so decided to change this.

Handmade4U.co.uk now has a presence on Tik Tok and You Tube, ably assisted by our two sons – camera-men, editors and uploaders! Please take a look to see how we create our ornaments from scratch.  The videos show the process of how an ordinary piece of wood can be transformed into something stylish and truly beautiful.

Gifts For All Occasions

Our Handmade Personalised Gifts are perfect presents to be given for Christmas, birthdays, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, or just to let someone know you are thinking about them. We work with a variety of woods to create the requested shape and words, and then, if required, fill the gaps with coloured resin to produce something utterly gorgeous.

Why Do We Do What We Do?

Our forests in the UK grow some of the most beautiful trees in the world. Each tree trunk has unique hues and patterns. I have always loved working with wood – how it looks and feels when I first start working with it, to its amazing transformation into the finished product.

There is something special about crafting a natural material into a gift that will be loved and cherished.

Sustainably Sourced Wood

We only use wood from managed and sustainably sourced woodlands – or from off-cuts from carpenters. This is because we do not want to take anything away from the natural world but instead add to it with a gift that will be in harmony with the environment.

What We Make And Sell

Handmade Wooden Garden Ornaments

Have you ever wanted your very own rainbow, dolphin or love heart, displayed in your garden? Or maybe your house name on a wooden plaque? We can create whatever you want from animals and trees, to film characters and words. We can produce these with or without coloured resin.

Pet Memorial Gifts

If you have a pet who has passed away recently, we understand what a difficult time this must be for you.

We create Pet Memorial Gifts that are not only beautiful to look at but can also contain some of the ashes from your pet. A suncatcher spinner will always be a reminder of how special they were to you. We deliver world-wide and have taken orders from the UK, Europe and the USA.

Handmade Presents

These can be anything you want – a sculpture, name, word or quote. We can do this in wood or add resin for extra colour and depth. The sky is the limit with our handmade presents – they can be as different and unusual as your imagination and our skill allows!
