Repurposing and reusing
almost any unwanted timber
Our purpose is to use reclaimed wood that has developed character over the years bringing warmth and texture to your home or business allowing each piece to find a second life.
At Canterbury Road, Handcrafted, our philosophy is based on repurposing and reusing almost any unwanted timber, from discarded shipping crates & abandoned pallets to charismatic, lichen covered Totara fencing & beautifully aged Rimu from the bones of an old home. Our purpose is to use reclaimed wood that has developed character over the years bringing warmth and texture to your home or business allowing each piece to find a second life.
Our Fantastic Team
Canterbury Road is a true reflection of what Dean & Haley like and believe in. They both love the individual characteristics of each piece of timber that they come across, appreciating where it has come from, what it was used for and look forward to see where it may end up. They have that innate want to see an unloved piece of timber/wood turn into a piece of furniture that finds its way into a home or business. Canterbury Road is held up on a foundation made of Deans love of traditional design who steers towards pieces with a colonial country, authentic feel and Haleys contemporary, edgy eye for detail that compliments Deans aesthetic. Together they collaborate on each piece they create, bringing together their skills, ideas and talents to make items that they are both proud of.
What our clients say
Dean & Haley, we can't thank you enough for the 4 pieces of furniture we have received from you. Each piece has its own uniqueness. The breakfast bench with shelves on each end... AMAZING! Good place for mugs etc. The smaller coffee table with shelves in one end and book case in the middle serves its purpose well. The corner TV stand and coffee table are equally amazing. The finished pieces are well made. We show off the furniture to all our visitors. Thank you so much for your amazing creativity. Love it!- Rob & Angela, Rotorua
``We are delighted with our new bookcase! After searching for a year I didn't think we were going to find the rustic style we were after then I found Canterbury road. Dean and Haley were very accommodating, great communication and built to the dimensions we wanted (huge!) and delivery was not a problem at all. Thanks guys.`` ....- Ursula & Mark, Cambridge
Got our bathroom vanity made from Canterbury road and we were not disaapointed! Excellent quality and finish and it looks great! Haley and Dean went out of their way to make sure the vanity was what we wanted and we are very happy with the finished product. Will recommend them to anyone who would like custom furniture. - Bhavna & Jeremy, Rotorua
