WoodenWares has always offered realistic Drafts, while some just do a Pencil Sketch we understand your wanting to see what the Key will look like not a rough sketch.  Would you spend $500 on some 2 minutes pencil sketch like this?

or would you be much happier if you get something like this?

This is what you get from WoodenWares, within 24hrs, we want you to see every detail, including what the blended colours look like, how can you compare a 2 minute rough sketch and expect to say "I LOVE it!" when you don't see any detail or colour?

We use the latest CAD Designing Software to allow us to show you exactly what your Key will look like, nothing is left to chance to have you receive something totally not what you imagined.  Don't Compromise your Hard Earned Dollar on anything Less!

WoodenWares Birthday Keys

"RED Days are FULLY BOOKED OUT DAYS, if the Birthday falls on a RED Day you need to order TODAY so that it can be ready on a current GREEN Day and allow extra days for delivery times and weekends."

Very Simple, if you need a Key on a RED Day, then it has to be ordered ASAP so that it can be Started on the next available GREEN Day and allowing plenty of time for Delivery, if you Ring, email or just place the order and Beg and Plead for us to "Just add your Key" on one of these RED Days then Sorry, we can't do, otherwise someone is going to miss out on their Key because we added your Key to our already demanding schedule.  Some Keys can take up to 10 hours to create so this makes it impossible to continually add New Keys to RED Days when Days are already Booked Out.  We hope you understand this.

We also Deliver each Day - Monday to Friday on both RED Days and GREEN Days

Being an online Shopper myself, I've learnt the hard way, if a Business isn't using Google Reviews then they must have removed it because of too many complaints and 1 Star reviews.  How many Banks and Larger Companies don't use Google Reviews? Most don't because we ALL Have a problem with Banks and Larger corporations and once we give them a 1 Star rating it sticks and they can't remove it so that's why they don't use Google Reviews.

Here at WoodenWares we don't hide anything, Google us, find our Reviews and see Hundreds of 5 Star Reviews from very happy Customers.  I personally don't buy from anyone unless I can see their Google Reviews so that I know that I'm getting what they are advertising and not something that I can't be 100% sure about..

At WoodenWares, we've spent 7 years refining our processes and technology to deliver high-quality keys at a more affordable price. Here's how we do it:

  1. Advanced Technology:

    • We have developed custom software and machines tailored to our exact requirements, reducing many hours of wasted time per key, which we don't bill you for.
  2. Custom, Not Mass-Produced:

    • Each key is crafted from raw materials to match the design you approved. We don't mass produce, ensuring each key is unique and high quality.
  3. Premium Materials:

    • We never compromise on materials. While other creators use paints (around $20 per litre), we use high-quality inks costing $500 per litre. This makes our keys more exclusive and long-lasting.
  4. Durability:

    • Our keys are designed to last over 50 years. We use expensive materials to ensure they do, so you don't have to spend a fortune on a key with a short lifespan.
  5. Innovative Stands:

    • We are the only key creator to have solved the common stand problems. Our exclusive Click n Connect stands ensure your key won't break or fall off, unlike the cheap rectangle stands used by everyone else.
  6. Customer Satisfaction:

    • Our commitment to quality and innovation has earned us hundreds of 5-star Google Ratings and loyal customers who return even after 7 years. We listen to your feedback and continuously improve.

By focusing on efficiency, premium materials, and innovative solutions, we provide high-quality keys that are both affordable and durable, ensuring you receive the best value for your investment.

How much are our keys?

  • Transparent Pricing: All our prices are clearly displayed on our website during the ordering process. There are no hidden surprises.
  • Price Range: Keys start around $300, with an average price of $380.

What sets our keys apart?

  • Attention to Detail and Materials: We focus on finer details and use unique materials that set our keys apart from others.
  • Innovative Designs: We have developed many world-exclusive designs and use materials that other key creators don't, putting us ahead of those still using outdated concepts.
  • State-of-the-Art Production: Our modern showroom and factory setup, combined with our experience and qualifications, allow us to complete a key within 4 days at no extra cost.

Our Commitment:

With 7 years of expertise in designing and manufacturing keys, our dedicated family and team continue to push boundaries, creating the ultimate birthday keys. Our passion drives us to continually innovate and perfect our craft, ensuring that each key we make is better than the last. This dedication makes us the No. 1 Key Creator.

Here is the Most Compelling reason your next Key will be a WoodenWares Key

WoodenWares was founded 7 years ago out of pure excitement, passion, and the emotional fulfillment of creating something special. For Ken, who is turning 64 this year, this business is about dedicating his later years to a craft he loves, not about selling hundreds of products or making heaps of money.

Our Specialisation

We specialise in Birthday Keys, allowing us to perfect, improve, and craft our products continually. Each key we create today is better than the one we made yesterday. We strive to re-invent and modernize keys, making them unique compared to what others are making or our grandparents received.

Our Commitment

Our family and team understand the importance of your key and want you to have it as soon as possible. That's why we ensure that each key is created within 4 days of ordering, at no extra charge. ( Based on Available Days ) Just like you, we believe that when you want something, you want it quickly!

Our Philosophy

Live every day to its fullest and always tell those close to you how much you appreciate and love them.

Ken & Monaliza

WoodenWares is proud to lead the way with our world-exclusive “Click ‘n’ Connect” stands. Here’s what sets our stands apart:

  1. Innovative Design:

    • Unlike the plain and boring rectangle "key holders" used by others, our stands are designed to be just as impressive as the keys themselves, telling a story and adding to the overall aesthetic.
  2. Functionality and Durability:

    • Our stands are not just holders; they are an essential part of the key. We designed the "Click 'n' Connect" system to keep advancing our technology in key creation. It's simple to connect and disconnect our keys, ensuring they stay securely in place.
  3. Perfect Fit:

    • Every key is designed to fit our stands perfectly. We do not compromise on this aspect, ensuring that our keys never fall off or break. This precision fit addresses the common problem of keys sliding sideways or falling forward, which is prevalent with everyone else's mass-produced rectangle stands.
  4. Customer-Centric:

    • We identified the major design flaw in 2017 where most keys were not designed to match their stands, leading to instability and damage. Our unique stands solve this problem, providing a secure and reliable solution.
  5. Proven Quality:

    • We have been using these unique stands since 2017, and our customers consistently praise their stability and aesthetic appeal.

Absolutely! At WoodenWares, we want your key to look the best it possibly can.

Many key makers avoid adding your photo or leave a slot for you to print your own, which often doesn't last long. We find this unacceptable due to the amount of work involved for you:

  1. Resize the photo
  2. Sharpen it and remove distractions
  3. Get it printed
  4. Cut it to suit the required shape
  5. Laminate it for longevity

This process can take several hours, and the result may not be durable.

Our Solution:

  • Specialized Process: We use a specialized process that ensures your photo lasts as long as the key itself. No paper or plastic here—our photos are indestructible.
  • Photo Included: Your photo is included for free with every WoodenWares key.
  • No Cropping Needed: Don't worry about cropping the photo; we'll handle it to ensure it looks perfect.

With WoodenWares, your photo will always look stunning, and you'll keep saying "Wow!" every time you see it.

WoodenWares offers so much more for so much Less



that's what everyone says, just read over 180 Google 5 Star reviews of customers thoughts as they unboxed their Key. 
While other Keys are in colour, they are mostly plain painted colours, not unlimited Blended Colours.

Our Keys are around 18mm Plus ( 3 to 6 times thicker ) so our Keys will withstand a lot more knocks and bumps and won't twist and deform in shape over time. We don't print the photos onto Paper like some do as these will only last a short while and begin to fade and age, we process our Photos of each person in a more specialised way that will outlast any other method, its all about giving the best we can. Right down to our Colours, others use a plain single colour while we Blend multiple colours together, we never use plain colours where we can, this is why our Keys look so impressive and why our customers jump straight onto Google to give us 5 Stars and tell their story on how they felt when they first saw their Key. 

We have just perfected a new "Click and Connect" Stand uprights, these where designed inhouse and the moulds and components created to eliminate the problems every other key maker has with their standard plain rectangle key holders they use to balance their keys.

Our Keys will NEVER fall off the Stand like everyone else's do, why spend all that money to find your Key is damaged because of these cheap key holders.

We were never happy with the method everyone else settles with where the Key sits on the holder, each time damaging the edges and risking of it falling off the holder at any time. From day one ( over 7 years ago ) we designed a special Stand that was attached to the Key and was just as important as the Key itself, a Stand that told a Story, not something there just to sit a Key on.

Its all about thinking "I can do better then this ..." and continuing to improve each day.

Our Stands are impressive even underneath with most people going "WoW" and that's why we are No. 1

because we continue to impress and satisfy all our customers improving with each key we do.

Yes, we send New Zealand wide  FREE ( 21 Day orders ) using Express Couriers.

Our Keys are specially packaged in custom made boxes to protect them from any damages. Sending Keys each month to America safely covering over 15,000klm journey shows we know how to package our Keys.

We also Guarantee a safe Delivery

Check out our Google Reviews, over 180 FIVE Star reviews so we must be doing something right!!

Being a Tradesperson working with Wood all my life I could see the major problem 7 years ago with the Cheap Rectangle Stands everyone still uses today, they were never Designed to protect your Key, every week we get people asking if we can repair there Broken Keys and in 9 out of 10 cases its impossible and ruined.  When they see how we make our Exclusive Stands they realise just why we are No. 1

We would NEVER send a Key out of our Shop if there was a 80% chance its going to be returned Broken within the first few months.

Why spend $500 on the chance the Key is going to be thrown away once it gets bumped.

WoodenWares is here to make sure you get the BEST Quality Ever! Our Keys will never fall off the Stands and Break.

Through our research and experience, We cater to most Cultures.

A lot of our Keys will show the patterns for Samoan but be available to purchase as a Cook Island, Maori, or other cultures by selecting this when ordering.

For multiple cultures, we have the option for you to order the Key in one Culture and the Stand in another.

Our Ordering process is very easy and fully customisable when filling out the form.

We create Birthday keys, such as 21st birthday keys as well as birthday keys for any age.  We also create plaques that can be utilised for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or memorials.

Our Keys are Exclusive and Unique because of the Materials and Processes used to create them,

a lot of what we do has been created by us because no one else was doing the Quality of Keys we were seeing 7 years ago.

We had to basically 'Invent' parts and spend months with prototypes and designs to perfect our processes, we even had all the software that controls all our Machines re-written to accommodate the Unique and Exclusive methods that we use, that's dedication to giving you the BEST Possible Birthday Key that you will ever see and allows us to get you your Key Completed in an acceptable timespan of 4 Days ( no extra charge )

While some Keys look like a WoodenWares Key its not till you get your delivery that you find its NOT the SAME and a lot of times cheaper materials are used which shortens the life of the Key by years. So many Makers are fighting to survive and one of the problems is they may be around for a few years and then disappear before you realise what you bought wasn't the Quality Key you thought it was.

We won't compromise Quality, that's why we have Hundreds of 5 Star Google reviews, proof that we are the Number 1 Key Creator.

We don't use cheap Stickers or Paints.




We take extensive measures to ensure your key arrives in perfect condition:

  • Custom-Made Boxes: Our boxes are specifically designed for our keys, using the thickest cardboard available.
  • Careful Packing: Each key is packed with love and care.
  • Proven Reliability: In 7 years, we’ve only had 2 damaged keys, prompting continuous improvements in our shipping methods.
  • Weekly USA Shipments: Our keys regularly travel over 15,000 kilometers to the USA, proving our packaging’s robustness.
  • Handling Mishaps: We anticipate potential mishandling by couriers and pack accordingly.

Our Guarantee: If your key arrives damaged, we will replace it and send a new one the next day at no cost to you. That’s our commitment to you!


When you order a Key from us its created from scratch from raw materials

We don't Mass produce or have large Stocks of blank Keys but create each Key with Love

Customer Privacy

At WoodenWares, we value your privacy and ensure that your details are never stored. Here’s how we protect your information:

  • No Data Storage: We do not store any customer details.

The roots of WoodenWares run deep in the southern Canterbury Region of New Zealand, specifically in the charming town of Timaru. It's where our journey begins, drawing inspiration from the picturesque landscapes and the rich cultural tapestry of this beautiful region. The Kiwi spirit of warmth, hospitality, and celebration is ingrained in every key we craft.

Ken, the creator behind WoodenWares, brings a background in Fine Art Joinery to the crafting table. With a love for the traditional artistry of joinery, each key is meticulously crafted, paying homage to the skills passed down through generations. This blend of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design results in keys that are not just functional but also works of art.

Beyond the traditional, my journey in crafting keys is fuelled by a passion for technology. Embracing modern tools and techniques, I infuse a touch of innovation into each piece, ensuring that your unique Key is not only a symbol of tradition but also a nod to the future.

What sets WoodenWares apart is the fusion of artistic finesse and a keen eye for detail. Each key is not just a product; it's a piece of art that tells a story. And when it comes to personalisation, I understand the importance of creating something truly unique. Your story, your memories, intricately detailed onto a key that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Thank you for being a part of our artistic journey. At WoodenWares, we don't just craft keys, we craft memories. We look forward to adding a touch of island charm to your special moments.
