Dear Conor, myself and Margaret are delighted with the items and love the beautiful feel and smell of the different woods and the informative notes with each item. Thank you especially for the Walnut ‘cigar’ pen which I will treasure. That’s it for now; keep up the brilliant work!

I am delighted with this clock. The seller even sorted me out with a specific request and delivered it very promptly. The clock was a gift and they are thrilled with it.

Was privileged to see Conor’s work on show in Tullamore. It is great to see his entrepreneurial work at such a young age and hope that his vision continues and moves forward!

Upon reviewing a very professional and informative website, I was enticed to order. I received the goods of very high quality promptly and I was delighted with my specific engraving, which was provided so expertly.
