Master Joiner Awards

25 June 2014

Master Joiner Awards

The 2014 winning entries in the annual Master Joiner Awards were announced last Saturday evening at the Master Joiner Awards Dinner at the Puke Ariki Museum in New Plymouth.

The aim of the Awards is to promote excellence in joinery design and craftsmanship, to encourage the use of sustainable timbers, and to showcase the finest work from the industry. These are the largest industry awards of their kind in New Zealand.

Judging criteria includes design, workmanship, innovative use of materials, complexity of project, and visual appeal.

Kitchen design is judged on the WOW factor, cutting edge design, practicality, and creative use of materials and colour.
