Cabin storage stool (as a gift for Christmas)

Hello Terence,
I hope you are having a happy Christmas and New Year season.
I just wanted to say how much Sue loves the Cabin Stool you painted for me to give her as a Christmas present. It was quite a puzzle finding somewhere to hide it until the 25th, but I managed it (under my office desk, hidden behind an attachÚ case) and Sue was completely unaware that I been in touch and had collected the stool before Christmas.
Sue believes, as I do, that the stool is simply magnificent, thank you for making such a wonderful piece.
Regards, David

Hello Terence,
Cor! I knew it would be good, well done mate! Thank you! I didn't expect to hear so soon especially as you had your course to oversee. Plenty of time left yet, but I will come and collect by arrangement with you.
Can't wait to show Lyn.
Talk to you soon.

3 Gallon water can (buckby can) (as a gift)

Hi Terence,
We hope you are well. Thanks for the email and photos, the can looks fantastic. We are so pleased with it, it's just what we were looking for and more ;-)
Bevis was hoping to have a drive out to pick the can up and put your face to a name. Bevis says that he will be passing your name and contact details onto the boating community in the west midlands if that is ok with you?
We thank you for your help and fantastic artwork you have produced and i am sure this will not be the only piece we will be asking for once word gets around ;-)
We thank you again and look forward to your response.
Many Thanks.

You are a genius Terence.
It looks fantastic mate! It will look absolutely fabulous. We hadn't expected you to have done it within 48 hours. Will contact you later in the week re pick up. Awesome.
Pair of trough planters (as a gift for a 60th Birthday present)

Many thanks for the planters they were fantastic, made for an unusual present, we are sure that Ethel and Colin will love them.
Look forward to seeing them on your web site.
Once again thanks.

2 Gallon water can (Buckby can) (as a gift)

We opened the box, stood back and said ' Wow ' !
The can is so detailed and beautiful, we are thrilled to bits. It has also been great to talk to someone with so much enthusiasm and love for their work, a factor so reflected in the finished result.
With many thanks and best wishes.

Watering Can (as a gift for Mary)

As expected, Mary was delighted with the special watering can. I attach a couple of photos of us pretending to use the can in the garden - we have not yet summoned up the courage to use such a beautiful item for real!

Cabin door set

The packages arrived today unscathed.
The plaques are brilliant. Your attention to detail amazes me. Perhaps you are undercharging for work of this quality. ( I'm not sending anymore money though!!)
Here is a shot of the finished door panels. I think they turned out very well indeed. Your art is brilliant. If we get back to England perhaps I will carry them with me and hang them on the back of our hired boat! Last time we took our own flag now I will bring my own doors!!
Thank you again.
Pair of trough planters (as a gift)

Just to let you know received flower troughs - safe and sound - thank you, they are really lovely and I'm really pleased with them. They will make a great Xmas present for Dave.
Barrel (as a gift)

I absolutely love it... When I spoke to you I knew you were good and a true craftsman but I never envisaged just how talented you really are. Thank you so so much it is exactly what I wanted for my brother and more besides.
I can confirm that we received the beautiful barrel safe and sound and I finally managed to catch up with my big bruv last weekend. He is always like a big kid when it comes to presents! He was absolutely over the moon.
Thank you once again for making a very special present for a very special brother.
Here is a picture of his beloved present (according to his wife he has been showing the barrel off to all and sundry) in situ.

Large milk churn, watering can, small milk churn, cabin door set, buckby can restoration

We love the milk churn - those cartoons are great! We can't wait to pick them up now.
Vase, milk churn, water jug

They are absolutely beautiful. Your website is brilliant. What a talented artist you are - keep up the good work.
You obviously have a deep feeling for the canals, which I can totally understand.
Watering can, water jug

Well what can I say? They are beautiful; I could not be more pleased with them. I have just had a new green house built and they are to take pride of place on a new shelf for my collectables.
Once again I would like to thank you so much for the items, you are one very talented artist.

Milk churn

The packages do look very attractive wrapped in the paper you use; perhaps they get special treatment for that reason -- the parcel with the milk churn looked as though it hadn't even been shipped yet!
I would like to congratulate you on your accreditation into the Waterways Craft Guild.
I enjoyed perusing your website and vicariously travelling with you along the canals.
Many thanks again for your reply, and of course for the lovely milk churn now gracing my kitchen!

Rose panels, castle panel, mini water can (Buckby can)

Here are a couple of photos of the panels on the bow door. The no-nails worked really well. I am really pleased with them.
Many thanks once again.
3 Gallon water can (Buckby can)

I am pleased to tell you that my can has arrived safely, many thanks indeed. The artistry is a credit to you and the pike looks very fit for action now! I found the extra castle scene on the bottom of the can and conclude that you must absolutely love painting. For work of this quality, my wife and I agree that you should be charging your customers more than you do.
Very well done indeed, and once again thank you.
I look forward to meeting up with you when we next come to Braunston.

Cabin door set

Carl and Liz (Blackstone) recommended that I contact you. I am looking for someone who can paint me four panels for the "back" doors on my narrow boat... We are hoping to travel to Braunston during May...
It was really good to meet you and your wife and we appreciated your hospitality despite the pouring rain.
The panels are wonderful. I stuck them on with bluetack just to see what they looked like before bringing them home to let them harden a bit before the proper sticking up.
Thank you so much. In the short time they were on the doors they attracted praise from the towpath!
Thanks again. See you again I promise.
