Make Piece Joinery Kawerau


MakePiece Ltd was founded in 2006 by owner/operator Richard Knott.
The catch phrase; “One of a kind – Make one piece” represents the capacity and diversity for individual and very special one off pieces of work that the company is renowned for.
Richard Knott, originally from England, immigrated to New Zealand in May 1996, after completing his City and Guilds apprenticeship and gaining qualifications in antique restoration; fine furniture making/finishing; and carpentry.
Throughout his working career, Richard has worked extensively within the building industry, within England, Canada and New Zealand.
With a sound career in carpentry behind him, Richard developed and founded MakePiece Ltd in November 2006, which has allowed him to share his passion and skills in furniture restoration and joinery.
Richard is a member of the Master Joiners – New Zealand’s best joinery manufacturers who pride themselves on delivering high quality products and services.
