Client testimonial

We were looking to identify a 'very special' piece of timber for the entrance of our home in West Wanaka. Andrew professionally presented a proposal based on a selected piece of ancient Kauri, exhibiting the unique 'fiddleback' grain.
Andrew worked closely with our local metal fabricator, to identify the best method for mounting the slab on our schist wall to provide a floating effect.
Installation went smoothly, and all parties involved were really pleased with the end result. The Kauri slab catches everyone's attention as they enter our house, and they cannot resist to run their hands over this lovely piece of timber. Overall, our expectations have been exceeded.
