Adam and Jo Braidwood - Dalewood Craft Designs and Mannin Laser Cuts

Their business idea came about 8 years ago, when Jo wanted a special keepsake to remember the birth of their second child. After not being able to find the perfect item, she decided to create her own, and was then subsequently asked to create gifts for family and friends, and the business grew from there with Adam helping on evenings and weekends.
When Adam was made redundant in the summer of 2015, he joined Jo full-time on the quest to hand-make personal gifts that were not easily obtainable elsewhere. In order to expand their business product range, Adam and Jo recently purchased a Laser Cutter. Which now enables them to provide local businesses and crafters with on-island laser cut supplies, as well as laser cut and laser engraved finished products from MDF, Wood and acrylic. Today, Adam is going back to work full time and leaving Jo as the master craftswoman.
DaleWood’s array of products is overwhelming, from beautiful creations for the home to bespoke metal sculptures and personalised keepsake items. They also offer stunning wedding dropboxes and guestbooks, and always enjoy working with their customers to share ideas and ensure they are always satisfied with the final results.
