I built my Home.
Marc Zuckerman Woodworker

We arrived in Hokitika in April 1971. As an exploration geologist, I fell in love with the ruggedness of the West Coast.  We purchased 3 acres, 20 km East of Hokitika on the road to the Hokitika Gorge and built our home including windows, doors and cabinets. 

In the process of building our house I became consumed by the desire to be involved in woodwork and design. The peacefulness of our environment inspires the simplicity in my work which I consider minimalist modern with a Pacific influence.

Over the first 40 years, as a self taught woodworker in a relative isolated environment, my work has ranged from furniture to kitchen utensils with a continuous progression of original designs.

All our products are 100% locally made and designed, with 100% sustainably managed NZ timbers. 

I have been fortunate to have a small group of talented woodworkers to assist in producing our

High quality products. These are Jane Chapman, Jan Zuckerman and Jane Churchwell.

The following pages showcase my small products which can be ordered directly from me as well as our New Gift Boxes.

All measurements are approximate as each item is individually made.  We use traditional woodworking  machinery without computer aides. 

Wholesale enquires are invited.
