How we got started

I have always been interested in working with wood having worked with it for many years building a number of boats ranging from a 2.5-meter dinghy to a 8 meter yacht.

During my working career I have managed a 40,000-acre Cattle property in Australia, been a Sales Manager and a General Manager of some large companies in New Zealand and later importing and distributing large Road Building equipment for local distrbution.

I sold this business and decided to downsize and started purchaing and repairing older boats, totally refurbishing them and on selling them.

I progressed into outdoor and indoor furniture, raised Garden Beds, Cape Cod Chairs, Large outdoor tables, Gumboot and Shoe Racks, Folding Ladder Stools for the kitchen and around the house.

As the demand increased for different size ladders I moved into making custom built Loft and Library ladders which has now become a major part of our business.

Also, a major part of our business is made to order internal and external sliding Barn Doors, made from Pine, MDF and Macrocarpa.

Its seems that no Doors or Ladders are the same, so we pride ourselves in making one-off custom-made products.

Because we are always looking for new project we have moved into furniture restoration, either a complete repair of damaged furniture and joinery or the total restoration of older antique or modern furniture (tables, chairs, sideboards, chest of draws or whatever.) We have teamed up with "Coopers" who manufacturer a unique range of materials that will strip all paint, vanish or shellac from old or new furniture, doors joinery, window sills etc.

Give us a call we would appreciate hearing from you and discussing your requirements.
