Wood by Design

“Michelangelo in wood. Ray is a true artist and I am honoured and pleased to have known him for over 20 years. During this time he has built for us in Rimu, Ancient Kauri, Eucalyptus and other timbers. Always an Artisan, he is a pleasure to watch. Other tradesmen gaze at his work in admiration. He started his trade as an apprentice decades ago, learning to build Roll Top Desks and accelerated from there to be the finest craftsman I have ever met. Always a smile and a suggestion on how to make it better, he is a pleasure to deal with. Need I say more.”
