High Quality Furniture Maker

Hi, my name is Russell Fredrickson. My passion is working with timber creating all kinds of fine pieces of furniture that will withstand the test of time. Anything that has drawers is always dove tailed not just front corners but rear as well. I stand by products I design and manufacture to the point that I give them a lifetime workmanship guarantee. Even if you have the timber I will machine it to make your masterpiece. Although I am based in Christchurch, I service nationwide so give me a call!

I had been looking for a long time for someone to make me a butcher’s block for my renovated kitchen. After a friend’s recommendation, I commissioned Russell to build the butcher’s block to my specific dimensions.

I found Russell’s craftsmanship and enthusiasm exemplary, and his attention to detail was superb.
The finished piece was beyond all my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell to anyone.


We recently asked Russell to produce a custom Butcher's Block for our butler's pantry in our new home.
It would be larger than any other he had previously made and would use both Rimu and Kwila in a checkerboard style.

The finished product was perfect - his measurements precise, workmanship was to the highest level, and overall, he went above and beyond to produce an incredible result.
