Custom Made Radiator Covers – Behind the Scenes!

Custom Made Radiator Covers – Behind the Scenes!

I know it might look like all I do is go on days out and holidays with the kids, but actually I do work as well!  Hubby (Dave) and I run Wolds Wood, a small family business selling wooden furniture. We live in a rural location and have turned our barns into workshops where we make everything ourselves.

Custom Radiator Covers

Dave makes fine furniture like beautiful walnut dining tables and benches. My work, it has to be said is less artistic but it is satisfying. I cut and sand! We make lovely radiator covers.  We make custom radiator covers too made to a customer’s measurements and don’t charge too much extra for it.

Career Change

Before we had the children, we both worked in IT, which we loved, but the hours were long and I often worked away from home. We wanted to do something more creative – and crucially – something we could do from home so we would be here for the children.

Cutting and Sanding Radiator Covers

Dave has always been very practical and has built our CNCs (computer guided cutting machines) from scratch. I supervise the running of these machines and sit here writing while they cut (like right now!).  When I have finished cutting and sanded everything by hand (goodbye nails!) I then send the covers through to the other workshop to be painted and packaged by Dave.

Rural Business

Sometimes it is hard, we are on the top of the Wolds and the winters can be bitter.  We have no heating in the workshop (I have a hot water bottle!). Motivating myself to leave my nice warm house to trudge through the snow is hard to say the least, but it is worth it.

We ship Worldwide

We ship to all parts of the UK.  We also ship to Europe and the US – smaller radiator covers are not that much extra to send internationally, but larger covers can be too expensive to be worth it.  Drop us an email at if you’d like to ask any questions! We usually have an 8 week wait time from ordering to delivering.  We are trying to catch up – but it is hard!  I know I am biased but they are worth the wait!  Click through to Wolds Wood if you would like to see more.
