Cutshop creates head-turning feature

When Evonne and Craig Norenbergs decided to do ‘something a bit different’ with the exterior of their house, they were thinking big.  Led by Evonne’s love of strong, bold patterns, the creative household designed a unique geometric pattern that became a 3.5m by 4m decorative panel completely covering one of the top floor exterior walls of their house.

Three jobs for North Shore DIYer

Paul and Sandy Munro wanted to build a bespoke glass-fronted kitchen cabinet to display their china. Paul spoke to Dave Sutherland at Cutshop North Shore and arranged to bring in his drawings. “I can’t speak highly enough of Cutshop.  I drew up the plans and Dave gave me some bits of advice on construction which worked out very well.  One of the nice things was that throughout the whole experience nothing was too much trouble.”…

Extra resource keeps jobs moving

We caught up with Paul Shepherd of Design Edge, one of Cutshop North Shore’s biggest customers, to find out how his relationship with Cutshop works and what keeps him coming back.

“I’ve been working with Cutshop North Shore for the past few years,” said Paul. “I used to cut all my own stuff, but it got really time-consuming — it takes a couple of days to cut a kitchen — and I was starting to lose work. With Cutshop I get more done and don’t get consumed by one job.”

A match made… at Cutshop

An imposing 1930’s desk originating from Auckland Central Post Office takes pride of place in David Pearce’s office.  As a personal coach and business mentor, it’s a space where he spends a good amount of time, but David had one problem: “I’ve got lots of books, almost too many and I wanted to get them off my desk.”

David’s solution was to custom-build a bookcase to match the desk, so he took the concept and dimensions over to Cutshop Mt. Wellington.  “I’ve always thought that if you can imagine what something is going to be like then you’re half-way there,” he said.  After working with Shane and Simon at Cutshop, the end result for David was just what he had imagined. “Cutshop made it easy for me”.

Scale, speed and accuracy for 150-room refurb

A 150-room hotel refurbishment has tested Cutshop Mt Wellington’s ability to deliver scale – and the team has come out on top. Not only have they delivered over 100 ready-assembled units so far but the hotel has been able to stay open to guests throughout the project.

The objective was to refresh and update the rooms, giving them a modern design that was both user-friendly and easy to maintain. Wayne Billings of Syracuse Joinery Collective project-managed the refurbishment as well as working alongside a colleague to fit the units. From final plans, the units were programmed into the Cutshop CNC machine and the carcasses were cut, edged and drilled. They were delivered flat-packed to Wayne who built them off-site. The team were given a four-hour window for each hotel room, in between groups of guests leaving and arriving. Read more
