Creating beautiful objects with unique timber to bring moments of joy as we go about our lives.

Kia ora,

My name is John Robertson and I'm a woodworker in Ōtautahi / Christchurch, Aotearoa / New Zealand where I work from my small workshop in our family home.

Most of us are surrounded by everyday objects that lack beauty and creativity. In response, I create beautiful objects with unique pieces of reclaimed timber to bring moments of joy as we go about our lives.

Have a look around my shop or check out my instagram page to follow the making process (www.instagram.com/woodandchiselnz/). There are lots of fun videos of carvings.
If you have questions or other ideas please let me know, I would love to talk.

More carvings coming in the first week of November 2023, or message me today to lock in your order.
