Jay's Yorkshire Workshop ep4 is on at 9pm tonight, BBC2!
Tonight we make an awesome chair for an equally awesome chap, Mr Bob. Mr Bob works tirelessly to support men in the Huddersfield area who are going through mental health issues. His charity, Platform One, is based at Huddersfield Train Station and they support over 700 men.

Whilst filming the show I used my day off to do a drawing of . I gave out prints of my drawing to each person who worked on or off screen on the show as a memento of the experience. I kept back the original drawing with the intention of raising a bit of money for Platform One. So the following link is to the auction for the original drawing and all proceeds will be donated to Platform One.

**Edit - you'll have to wait a week as the cricket has took our slot**

Jay's Yorkshire Workshop ep3 airs tonight at 9pm on BBC2!
Tonight's show features the build that I had struggles with. We use very expensive timber to make a premium product. By the time we filmed this episode I had got to know CiarΓ‘n and Les and I didn't want to let the team down. Especially when the item we made was similar to those CiarΓ‘n makes in his day to day work.
This was the day when it dawned on me you can't always just graft harder and longer than other people to get yourself to the same point as they are at. Sometimes you need to take a step back and slowly work through the processes to get the outcome you need.

I was lucky enough to be part of this show making items for people who'd gone above and beyond for their communities here in Yorkshire.

I can finally let you all know where I was when I disappeared from Rawtenstall Market earlier this year!
I was filming a new TV series, Jay's Yorkshire Workshop!
In the workshop we made wooden items from scratch for people who had been nominated for doing something outstanding in their communities. It was hardwork, long hours and emotional but totally worth it.
The first episode will be aired at 9PM on Wednesday 18th August on BBC2.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet! I've been busy trying to build a website. I've found trying to sell on Ebay and Etsy is hard work so I'll be moving all products onto the new site over the next couple of weeks..
I'm much more at home making things with wood rather than online so the site is a work in progress but its live and ready to be checked out now!

Lovely little live edge oak coffee table!
It's got a tough gloss finish on top (it can be waxed to make it extra shiny for a small extra fee). I've put it on matt black legs to make sure the oak is the star of the show!
The table is for sale at Β£150 with pic up points either in Rawtenstall or Huddersfield.

It's dimensions are: 27inch long, 18inch wide and 16inch high.

Merry Xmas everybody!
I've not been able to post much in December as almost every item was a personalised gift.
Here is a tiny proportion of the items I've been busy with.
Have a great day, enjoy your family time. See you all mid January.

I've just sent my latest solid oak stable signs off to Dublin. Here's a few of the ones I've made so far. I use my Handbuilt laser to burn a photo of your horse, it's pet name and pedigree name into the oak, there's no ink so it will never fade. The name signs can come gloss or matt finished and with or without screw holes.
I only use offcuts of oak flooring, so no trees were felled for these products - I'm using waste wood that would end up in logburners or landfill.

Today is one of those days where you learn to take the rough with the smooth! I've spent the morning emptying the market stall of stock so that I'm able to sell online through Lockdown, It wasn't nice to leave my stall looking empty and sad but I'll be back....

Whilst driving home from the market I received some brilliant news! My little Business has made it through to the final three in two separate categories at the Rossendale Business Awards! I'm into the final for the Sole Trader Category as well as the Made In Rossendale Category! I'm totally blown away by all the support I've received since I took over Handmade in Rossendale.
At the moment it looks like I'm the only Rawtenstall Market business to have made a shortlist, I'm hoping I've got that wrong and more of the amazing market businesses get shortlisted but if not then fingers crossed I bring an award back to the Market.
For those that don't know the story behind my business, I had been out of work for 3 years, applied for over 300 jobs and only had one interview (which was in an upstairs office) before taking over Handmade in Rossendale. It may have been a huge coincidence but all of the knockbacks read to me as though nobody wanted to employ a wheelchair user with Asperger's. So, rather than sit at home bored and rely on benefits I decided to make my own job and ignore lots of people who told me a market stall wasn't a viable job. I'm glad I'm stubborn because I love my job and have a great time talking with my customers and fellow traders at the market. The mental health benefits of working for a living are immense and I'm a much happier and content person than I was 18 months ago.

Thanks to the person/people who nominated me and thanks to everybody for all the support!

I've had a delivery! I'll now be accepting deposits to reserve your car/plane/fire engine...
I have more on the way and have many more models to choose from including fully licensed CitroΓ«n, Peugeot and he top of the range Bentley 1920s racing cars. The Benleys even have real leather seats and steering wheels and of course they are in British Racing Green. I also have small push along toys Availiable as well as pedal cars, ballance bikes and mini ride ons at great prices for such well made toys.

All of the ride ons can be fully personalised with designs in keeping with each model. I can store your items until just before Xmas so any budding detectives don't stumble up on their Xmas present before the big day.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or want info on the other models Availiable.

Last week I promised exciting news and here it is...
A couple of months ago I was looking for a first birthday present for my god son. I wanted something special and looked at dozens of toys but didn't think any of them would last him very long. I eventually settled on the idea of a ride on car but I struggled to find anything that wasn't flimsy, plastic, very expensive or downright ugly! Then I stumbled upon these absolute beauties from France and decided to buy a blue one and customise it myself. I totally fell in love with it and before little Ruben's Birthday it sat in my living room next to the fireplace as an ornament!
Since then, as I was so impressed with the quality, I have been in contact with the manufacturer and become an official stockist. I have a wide range of cars, fire engines, planes, hats & goggles, horns and even a petrol pump on route to Handmade in Huddersfield.

I can customise and personalise these products as you can see from the first two photos, I've included my god son's first name, surname, hometown and age.

These top quality, safety tested, beautiful toys will make any little boy or girl's Christmas and will go on to be handed down the family.
I wish I had one!!

This chap was picked up on Thursday, it's the most detailed photo on oak I've ever done. He stands 10 inches tall and his family are made up with the results - as am I.
I love these jobs!

I love this table! It is made from an Edwardian cold store door with years of paint and weathering that just can't be recreated. I removed all of the loose paint and secured the rest with a matt varnish, I painted the cork chip filled insulation box in matt black and added the market leading heavy duty hairpins from the hairpinlegco. It would make a great kitchen table or a small dining table. I wish I could keep it!

Another new product!

I'm now making gift tags, I can write any message on them and cut them to any size. They even make my legendary bad wrapping skills look acceptable πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
You can write on the back of them in biro if you need to.

I made this a couple of weeks ago but it was a surprise gift so couldn't share it until now.
Bentley's dad now has his image burnt into oak hanging on his office wall. Wire haired dogs burn in to wood really well as there is lots of texture for me to work with.
I can burn pretty much anything into wood or slate from people's portraits to motorbikes, animals and landscapes, logos, buildings and football badges. Drop me a message for more info.

New service for crafters, makers and bakers now availiable!! Aswell as etching into ply and other materials I can cut out shapes and letters for you to decorate at home.. As you can see in these photos I can also use the two techniques combined - either cutting shapes out of an etching to reveal a background or etching details onto a shape.
If you can draw a shape, or even describe it, I can cut it. So, if you want to create an entire farm yard of animals to add to my drove of donkeys you or your children can decorate them at home. Or if you struggle finding a name and age flag for your cake I can cut that out for you too... You no longer have to worry about finding a "Happy Birthday 67th Gertrude" sign again! πŸ˜‚

This service has no minimum order. If you want one family tree cutting out or one cake sign that's fine.

Just finished my mystery jigsaw! πŸ˜‚

This box came to me in pieces, covered in blue and white paint and with many pieces missing.
I've restored it but made sure I left as much of its charm as possible. I even cleaned and reused the 80 year old screws where possible - everywhere else I aged modern screws to match in.
All of the metal work has had surface rust and loose paint removed then been clear coated to protect from rust in the future. The woodwork has been sanded back and then waxed with top quality products.
Whilst restoring it I found some writing on the lid, check out the last photo, it think the first line says Am and the second line says B&p 1939... But I could be wrong!

The box is now for sale if you are interested drop me a message.

Like millions of others I've been massively inspired by Captain Tom. I've loved watching his interviews and welled up with pride seeing this old soldier marching on.
So, after donating what I could to his fundraising page I decided to write him a letter and send him this as a gift for his 100th birthday and as a thank you for lifting the nation's spirit.
On one side I've burnt in an image of Tom in uniform with his name underneath. On the reverse I've burnt in an image of Tom walking with his frame and the words:
"Still serving at 100"

What a chap!
