Customer Comments


We’ve received such good feedback about our work,we thought we’d share some comments with you…

“For an architect who demands the highest quality of craftsmanship and the ability to construct the most demanding of designs, Wooden Earth Creations has been the best cabinetmakers that I have worked with in my professional career, over some 45 years of architectural practice.”

Martyn Evans, Architect, Auckland

“New Zealand Rimu was chosen to be the main feature throughout our house and thanks to Wooden Earths’ skill, has become just that. Our doors, corner units and the kitchen are the main talking points for all of our visitors and stroking the beautifully finished timber, is a very common occurance. By turning our ideas into reality without stress, Joachim and his team have added to the pleasure of living with a bespoke product so wonderfully crafted.”

For this we thank them very much… actually, it is a brilliant job!

Shirley & Mike Endean, Kerikeri

“We wanted a traditional wood (jarrah) panelled library, a very wide Cedar front door and a custom designed and installed kitchen. Wooden Earth Creations did a fabulous job, on time, and with an attention to detail and a quality finish that would have had pride of place in any capital city of the world.”

Richard & Roberta Salmon, Kerikeri

“First we had WEC custom-make some totara dressers – these are real features. Then came a complicated retro-fit balustrade that worked out perfectly! This led onto to an oiled pillularis floor. We are very pleased with all of these – not just with the craftsmanship and good advice, but particularly with the fine sense of aesthetic design evident in these works – that’s what I think sets WEC apart.”

Paul & Katharina Quinlan, Landscape Architect

“We wanted a new kitchen in native wood to be fitted into a restructured kitchen area of unusual shape. This involved a great deal of imagination, which WEC not only provided, but came up with computer images of the design. This was transformed into a craftsman-built rimu kitchen which still gives us great pleasure, looks wonderful and generates many favourable comments, even after 3 years. To see what skilled craftsmen can produce with the richness of native wood is inspirational. Thanks WEC for the everyday pleasure that your efforts have brought us. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending WEC to anybody, confident that a first class job will result.”

Keith & Sue Clement, Kerikeri

“The warm glow of rimu floors laid by a craftsman is what we have the privilege of living with everyday! We now have the kitchen of our dreams, with expert design, produced by someone who cares and with functionality that we and all visitors to the house are impressed by.”

Steve & Sonya Hertig-Ihimaera, Otangaroa, Northland

“Beautiful design and craftsmanship and a pleasure to deal with.”

Phil & Ann-Marie Sharp, Kerikeri

“Fantastic job, resorting character back to a villa. Professional workmanship and stayed within the quoted price.”

Rex & Olwyn Snell, Kaeo

“We are always very satisfied with Joachim’s work and can highly recommend him (as we always have) to everyone. His work has always been of high quality and done very precisely. Very good craftsmanship!”

Juergen & Dorle Hacker, Kaeo

“Our small, pokey 1970’s kitchen has been transformed by beautiful materials and skilful design into a space which has all the elements I wanted but thought impossible to fit in – wall oven with microwave over, pantry, dishwasher space, bookshelf. It really was precision made and perfectly fitted, with strong hingeing, modern handles, a corner carousel & soft-closing dish drawers. Our new rimu veneer and paua blue Bizazzastone kitchen has become the centrepiece of our house.”

Veronica Vroegrop, Onerahi, Whangarei

“I was sent off for a holiday at our bach and I came home to the old kitchen demolished and spirited away – new kitchen en situ and what a lovely job was done. Full satisfaction at reasonable rates.”

Annie R. – Kerikeri

“We were running to a deadline and the WEC team put in more than 12 hour days to get us into our revamped home in time for Christmas. The quality of the work on our floors and new kitchen, are testament to a dedicated, talented and patient team.”

Angie & Anton Masutti, Whangarei Heads
