About Me

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.
