Thanks so much for Brents gift. Everyone really blown away by it, wanting to know who did it, one of Brents mates already telling his father he wants one so you I think you may be getting some more work!
Brent loves it and has taken it to town tonight to show some mates who couldn’t make the party. My husband is already planning one for our next son and my sister has been on your website looking at all the photos and talking about what she would get for her kids.
Thanks again

Afternoon Bryan. I got held up with things that I forgot to take time to thank you for the 21st key. My sister loved it sooo much that she kept saying thank you over and over again. But she should be thanking you Bryan. Thank you very much for making it in time for her birthday. I did have doubts, I’m not gonna lie but overall I was impressed and I thank you for that. Thankyou so much for everything, because without the key, we wouldn’t know what we were celebrating hahaha. Thanks.


I would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to you both for a job WELL DONE. You have been both great during the whole ordeal and we are so grateful and really happy with the end result. I will comment on his page with positive feedback as this was not an easy project for Brian.

Thanks so very much for the saxophone. Have received it and so very happy with it. I had to share the opening of the box with a friend and she was also overwhelmed by it. Please relay my gratitude to Bryan who did a marvellous job.

For my partner David’s 50th birthday I struggled for months thinking of what to get him. What does a lady buy the man who has almost everything but expects nothing? I desperately wanted something that would keep, be enjoyed by as many as possible and something that was heartfelt. This is for the man that won’t wear a watch, won’t carry a wallet and doesn’t do fancy. Apart from buying something that would hold little meaning, I was well and truly stumped for what I was going to do that would have the thought and wow factor behind it . David manages his family’s dairy farm, where they have just had an original barn restored that their Great Grandfather J. J built in 1914. With J.J being so frequently spoken of by David and with the understanding I have of how much work J.J had put into this farm, I decided I finally had the best idea for a present. I would get a wood carved sign made to hang on the newly restored JJ’s barn.


Thank you to Bryan and Jos for helping create the most wonderful birthday present. This gorgeously crafted piece of art work will hang proudly on J.J’s barn and will symbolise the importance of the wonderful man he was, who set up a family farm for future generations to learn, grow and prosper from. David will just love this. I can’t thank you enough for the extra mile you went to in order to make this happen.

My heartfelt thanks to you for making such a special occasion even more special.

Regards and best wishes

I just wanted to extend my gratitude for the effort you went to, to get the 21st key created. When she saw the 21st key she was speechless, in truth we were all speechless. It was spectacular. So a HUGE thank you!

Only just got to see the 21st key on the weekend. Am really pleased with it.
Awesome job.
Thank you all very much.

    Bryan and I sat down to go through the design of my key, I got to see the drawing but decided not to see the finished product till my 21st night. I was blown away, it looks amazing and I am beyond happy with it, you can see all the hard work put in and I am so grateful to have something so meaningful to treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you!

      My name is Billie and I reside in Sydney. I cannot begin to tell you how hard and stressful it has been to communicate by email and phone calls with Bryan and Jos.

      Bryan was my life line, my last minute saviour after another carver fell through. Time was against me and I didn’t think I would have the 21st key I had designed for my nephew ready in time.

      I couldn’t just visit Bryan and check everything’s going smoothly so I had to trust and believe in him which was extremely hard.

      I arrived in Auckland and visited Bryan at his home on the 21st of August, my nephews 21st party was on the 22nd August, (talk about last minute). With my eyes wide open, my mouth hanging on the floor, I got teary. I was beyond happy, happy is not the word to describe how I was feeling.

      I cannot praise Bryan enough, he did an amazing job given the short time he had to carve my 21st key exactly how I wanted.

      To those living abroad and looking for a carver Bryan is your man.

      Oh my nephew absolutely loves his key, whoo hoo.

      Bryan and Jos thank you both very much xx
