Bringing your vision to life with bespoke furniture that is high-end, unique and made with care.

From custom cabinetry, floating beds, bookshelves, entertainment units to custom made headboards. I can do it all and I do it well. My commitment to quality craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail is what sets me apart.

I design furniture to match the clients already existing household furniture. ie, side cabinets to match the coffee table, headboard to match bedroom furniture, sideboard, etc. I work with solid wood and wood veneer mainly but also offer Painted finish. Materials, finishes, and innovations – the building blocks for supremely refined and memorable designs.

Woodcraft by John West lends a unique craftsman touch to every project, with the option of collaborating with an architect who can design unique furniture & cabinetry to suit the needs of my clients. The finished products are a masterful fusion of fine materials and consummate craftsmanship for the most discerning of tastes.

About WoodCraft

Hi there and welcome to WoodCraft by John West. I first started in the furniture industry by completing my cabinet-making apprenticeship in 1988 at M J Stark Ltd, Hastings. There, under the watchful eye of Kevin, I learned the old craftsman techniques on imported and native woods.

I’m a perfectionist when it comes to woodworking. Timber is a living product so by using my hands to craft custom made furniture, that loving energy is transferred to the wood. I have also completed a carpentry apprenticeship where my eye for detail and finishing skills came in handy for high-end houses.

I am Waikato based but will travel north and as far away as Napier.
