PROVIDING BESPOKE FURNITURE AND CABINETMAKING TO A DISCERNING CLIENTELE.
YOUR EXPERT CABINET MAKER
Precision, Quality, Professionalism
CABworkshop utilizes the latest CNC manufacturing techniques and experienced cabinetmakers to produce unique high quality work. From initial design advice and discussions through working drawings to final installation we are your turnkey cabinetmaking option.
A unique point of difference with CABworkshop is that the owners, Stuart and Alex, are both Industrial Designers. This means we're able to initiate a design for you from scratch or, if you already have drawings etc, our design background will ensure that key design elements aren't lost to standard cabinetmaking norms but rather are implemented with integrity for the design intent.

A Passion for Detail
CABworkshop was formed in early 2016 as a partnership between Alex Bowler and Stuart Bowman.
Both Alex and Stu are qualified Industrial Designers with a passion for furniture and cabinet design.
Stu has had 20 years of experience in the industry. Prior to this, he worked as an Industrial Designer in Sydney for 10 years returning to NZ in the late nineties to initially work with then take over the iconic Auckland furniture brand Apartmento. Apartmento remains one of NZ's leading residential furniture brands renowned for its contemporary aesthetic and high build quality. With his wife Melissa (who now runs the Apartmento showroom located in Ponsonby Auckland) Stuart also created, developed then sold the Meluka furniture brand to Danske Mobler in 2015.
Stu has a passion for furniture and furniture design history and is committed to producing the highest quality work.
Alex has a wealth of experience in kitchen cabinet making and in particular with CNC production techniques now so vital to this industry. As an Industrial Designer Alex has previously been involved in amphibious vehicle design, motorcycle, and car design and is acknowledged as an expert in 3D CNC surfacing and machining.
To complement Alex's many year's experience in kitchen manufacturing and in-depth knowledge of CNC manufacturing he is also a passionate furniture and cabinet maker who is motivated by the absolute precision offered by CNC manufacture.
