Nottingham based designer / maker of personalised and bespoke things
I’m the main man at Handytech. I’ve been a motorcyclist continuously since 1974 and I’ve tried my hand at hang gliding, paragliding, scuba diving and potholing. Here I am bungy jumping off the Kawarau Gorge bridge in New Zealand in 2018. Click here to see the short video of my jump – I loved it.
I worked in operational and strategic sales for over 25 years. I realised that there is so much more to life and work than grinding away earning money and in 2017 I discovered what fun could be had designing and creating things with a with a hobby laser. In January 2019 I bought an elegant British manufactured industrial CNC Laser and gave up the corporate life (quit the rat race!). I started designing and creating nice things. Things I’m proud of. Things people like to hold and look at. I get a LOT of pleasure from my hobby turned business. Life is good.
So, what do Handytech make…?
Not much money, that’s for sure but…
I’ve developed a range of iconic Christian items – from beautiful crosses constructed of nothing but the words of the Lords Prayer (all recognised versions) – a lovely wooden serenity prayer – tasteful Christian gifts such as ringboxes, bespoke coasters and my unique design of “fish” key rings. The Christian items are highlighted in my shop on secure sister site www.christiancrafts.org. Pictures of things I’ve made (that I remembered to photo before shipping!) are in the gallery page – click the link and take a look.
I’ve also developed some more commercially biased items such as company personalised promotional items such as Coasters (better than Xmas cards!), Keyrings, Round Tuits etc.
Here are my contact details. Please get in touch if you have any queries or if you want to enquire about something I make or are thinking of having something made and most especially if you’d like to tell me what you think of what I make!
I look forward to hearing from you.
