Customer feedback

Here is a selection of what my customers are saying about Just Native.


Roger made 2x bedside cabinets to my specifications. Roger contacted me with any changes that needed to be made. These cabinets are beautifully made, I am so happy with the quality of the workmanship & the overall look of these bedside cabinets, so happy.

Marie D:
I recently called into the showroom at Just Native in Ohau as I had been looking for a couple of pieces of outdoor furniture to suit my new house. On talking to Roger he offered to come and see me to discuss my requirements (no obligation) as I was a little uncertain of exactly what would be suitable, I didn't want anything that looked too bulky. This was just as well because Roger was able to take measurements and give me a quote on a servery to go outside my kitchen windows which opened out to the barbecue area, and also some seating for a corner of the house where I often like to relax in the sun.

He did a drawing of a design he thought would be suitable and quoted for both totara and macrocarpa so I had a choice. My choice was totara and I am absolutely delighted with the finished units which, as it turns out, were pretty much exactly what I had visualised would look right.

I have no hesitation in recommending Roger as a craftsman who can give that little bit extra to a customer, which makes such a difference. He is happy to listen and come up with ideas that are just right.

Graeme and Barbara:

Over the last few months we have purchased several pieces of furniture from Just Native Furniture. Just recently, we asked Roger to make for us a large outdoor table for our deck. We are thrilled with the result. Our table is made from heart Totara, is 3m long, 1.4m wide and will comfortably seat 16, which is just what we wanted – it is truly a beautiful piece of outdoor furniture..  From the time of our visit to having the table delivered was only 1 week!

The process of agreeing on the design and what wood to use with Roger was very easy. Roger‘s understanding of what works well was very helpful for us.  Roger is without doubt a very talented craftsman.

We have also appreciated that Roger delivered to our home in Tawa the beautiful queen headboard and matching side cabinets, the table and bench seats and an entertainment cabinet.  We cannot fault our furniture from Just Native and will definitely visit Roger again.

Many thanks Roger.  We will be in touch again !

We celebrated Fathers Day today with a lunch on our beautiful table and it was so cool to be able to fit everyone around it.  


I have purchased several items over the years. We like the lighter wood colours and are delighted to work with a local individual who takes great pride in his work but listens to his customers and prices are reflective of the workmanship.

He made us a simple rimu coffee table that  has daily use.  We have his magazine racks and he also made me a ukulele music stand (also know as a book stand)  ideal for jam sessions.
