PROVIDING BESPOKE FURNITURE AND CABINETMAKING TO A DISCERNING CLIENTELLE

 

YOUR EXPERT CABINET MAKER

Precision, Quality, Professionalism

CABworkshop utlises 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.

  • Kitchens

  • Bathroom vanities and cabinets

ABOUT US

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.

Stuart Bowman

Stu has had 20 years 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 quaility.  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.
