Woodworkers at the local markets.


I visited the local Riccarton Rotary Sunday Markets last week when I was in Christchurch…

This market is the largest in New Zealand with over 300 stall holders each week… although only a few offer woodwork, it is of a high standard..

Should you find your self in Christchurch make a point of visiting the markets…

I had a small chat with a few of the stall holders and even bought a timber photo frame…

One of the people I spoke with was Judy from Sublime Art.. she is a pyrographer… ie she burns designs into timber….and mdf…

or as she puts it… she draws with fire...

The other was Nigel from Morgan 3D CNC Ltd. where I purchase a Rimu photo frame with an inlay all round in Paua Shell. He has a small cnc router, laser cutter and engraving machine.

There were a couple who make striped cutting boards… at a very reasonable price.. they did not have a web address but they reckon they do well with the boards..

The other gentleman whose stall I photographed was not in attendance but the work was outstanding…

Once again a small vid of the visit…

I will also include some still shots so you can have a closer look.
