As craftsmen, we make everything by hand. It takes time, skill, and care. You can truly see and feel the difference in quality.
Everything we create is a one-off. The story behind each piece of work will always ensure it means more than something mass- produced. Hand-crafted custom joinery holds a sense of identity and significance.
Our doors and windows have unique characteristics, and add value to each property – even when used discreetly. We also custom-make kitchens, laundries, bathrooms, staircases, wardrobes, shelving, and interior and exterior furniture that perfectly fit your home, lifestyle, and personality. Simply put, if it can be made with timber, we can do it.
We love working with wood, and believe it is a far superior investment when compared to man-made alternatives. Timber has a low carbon footprint, and is a natural insulator. Not only does it have the highest thermo-rating of any material available, it feels warm and rich to touch – compared to aluminium, steel, or PVC. When maintained, our joinery will last through your lifetime – providing excellent value for money and holding memories for families to share across generations.
At Amalgamated Joiners, we create exceptional products that celebrate wood, function perfectly, and possess character – both now and for generations to come.

We create exterior doors that you can’t buy off the shelf. We will craft your door by height, width, and design. We can match new doors to an existing style – even for heritage buildings. French and bifold doors can also open up the side or back of your home. These are double-glazed and weathertight, to meet current building code standards.
Functionality is the key for interior doors. We will design your doors for privacy, soundproofing, or heating, and finish them to match a style that links in with the rest of your interior. We can take care of the complete process here in our workshop (including staining or painting, and hardware installation) so that they are ready for delivery to your home.
Wooden windows add character to a home, and double-hung windows have an attractive traditional look. Popular types include square, bay and half-bay windows – even circular. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing your heritage or restoration home’s windows and frames will be extremely durable, and comply with the modern New Zealand standards for water tightness and draught prevention.
We specialise in designing and crafting quality one-off kitchens and laundries. We have found that our customers know exactly how they want to use their kitchen and laundry spaces. Often, they want to incorporate recycled or meaningful materials that they already own, and which link with the rest of their home’s style and character.
We specialise in designing and crafting wooden features for bathrooms and ensuites that are unusual, for example, architecturally-designed wall units, curved bath surrounds, and vanities. We can advise you on the characteristics of certain timbers that make them suitable for bathroom use as well.
An exquisite purpose-built staircase is often the main feature of an outstanding building. We build solid staircases the traditional way, with no cut-outs, and we craft them from the finest timber of your choice. We also make staircases that can be carpeted, for more emphasis on the design rather than on the wood itself.
We design and create furniture to order, for a specific space or purpose. For example, a dining table of a particular size or shape may be needed for a special room. Similarly, a dresser, desk, or bookcase can be made for an area or nook, but can also be easily relocated.
Our wardrobes are custom-made for a specific space, purpose, or lifestyle. They are built for the customer who wants their wardrobe to be a little different than what’s available off the shelf, and knows exactly how they want to use it. We use solid timber and quality hardware, which sets our wardrobes apart from common ones.
We design and create shelving, display, and storage units for specific spaces, and which will fit around the features of a room (such as entrances and alcoves) and link with the style and character of the home. We can produce standalone pieces (such as bookcases) as well, for easy relocation.
We design and create specialised and statement furniture to suit an outdoor space. Often, our customers have a specific style to suit their house. Outdoor wooden playhouses, gates and decorative fencing can also be made to order. Our service includes advice on how to care for handmade outdoor furniture.
Our craftsmen at Amalgamated Joiners are experts at designing and building specialised church furniture. Our alters, in particular, have been designed to suit a very specific architecture and congregation. Because our church furniture is solid wood, it’s built to last. We are happy to advise on the design and timber options to suit.
