Welcome to Oak and Personal - the home of unique, personalised, engraved wooden gifts, hand made from solid English and European prime oak.  All timber is FSC or PEFC certified, or sourced from other local sustainable resources (read more about our environmental policy). Every item is made to order, and you will not find our products on the High Street.

Any of our items makes a perfect present for any occasion, and you can purchase safe in the knowledge that your gift is guaranteed to be unique.  All are designed by us and hand made in our West Sussex workshop.  Our range of products includes chopping boards, cheese boards, carving boards, bread boards, wine racks, wall clocks, boot jacks, bookends, and fruit bowls, and we are always working on new designs.

personalised engraved wooden chopping boards

We offer almost endless possibilities with the engraving, limited only by your imagination. There is no fixed number of characters - we adjust character size and spacing to accommodate your required inscription. We can also add a 2D or 3D motif, or design a personalised cipher to make your purchase as individual and special as its recipient.

The level of personalisation makes our products extremely popular for engagement and wedding gifts, anniversary and birthday presents and any other special occasion, such as Christmas, house warming and retirement, when that extra special personal touch will be appreciated.

If you seek a gift with a difference that is oak and personal then you are in the right place. Read why our products and service are unique.

Another happy customer...

“Hello John and Diana,
I want to thank you so very much for the wonderful board which you made for me. I gave it to my husband on our 40th wedding anniversary. My husband is not an emotional man but it brought tears to his eyes!
The quality of the work is outstanding and the carving brilliant. The board now has pride of place in the kitchen and has been commented upon by many of our friends and family.
The service you provided me with from start to finish was what customer service should be about, friendly, nothing was too much trouble and responses came back very quickly. You and your company are a pleasure to deal with and I would certainly recommend you and your products. What made it even more special was that the board arrived 2 days earlier than I was expecting.
Thank you again from a grateful customer.”

A New High Quality, Low Maintenance Finish For Our Wooden Chopping, Carving and Bread Boards

We are always looking for ways to improve our products, whether it be their design, the raw materials or the finish.  For some time we have been mindful that the white mineral oil we have used on all our wooden boards and lazy susans for the past 5 years would require regular maintenance and care.  In a hectic world, we are all busy and likely to rarely have time to take the necessary care.

The good news is that with our new finish of a blend of natural waxes and oils, board care is greatly minimised.
