About Us



Husband and wife team Martin and Janice are the founders of MandJWoodcrafts. Even today they work together on virtually every project to bring their specific skills to every hand-made, hand-decorated wooden gift or toy.


Martin is the technical genius who has created the techniques and equipment that makes MandJWoodcrafts woodwork so special. Not only did he build his own CNC machine, he designed a steamer to that is used to create our stunning handmade shaker boxes - not just a beautiful wooden object and a perfect gift, but a craft item that will become a treasured possession for generations to come.


Janice personalises our plaques and other individually handmade wooden gifts. Her skills with paint and design are called upon to create wood gifts that are unique and commemorate special occasions or just to add a personal touch to a novelty chalkboard.


Based in Yorkshire , MandJWoodcrafts calls upon a long history of native woodworking. North Ferriby, where our workshop is found, is the site of the earliest sewn plank boats outside Egypt. Dating back to the Bronze age, the Ferriby boats are the earliest known boats found in Europe and point to a heritage of working with wood that we continue to the present day.
