R.A Woodcraft: “craftsmanship | integrity | sustainability”
At the head of the team founder, Rudolf Zuidema, has over two decades of woodworking experience.
He is classically trained and a fully qualified joiner/wood machinist, but above all else he has an infectious passion for innovation.
Rudolf has represented South Africa at the World Skills Olympics in Joinery where he finished in the Top 10.
During his training he spent time training under a British master joiner, refining his skills and learning traditional joinery techniques.
Investment into state of the art German machines and the very best tools has enabled the team at R.A. Woodcraft’s craftsmanship and skills to shine.
Rudolf’s moto is craftsmanship, integrity and sustainability and this embodied by all who work at R.A. Woodcraft.
We have an amazing team who receive continual training and skills development. Our team is dedicated and sensitive to doing all they do with meticulous attention. We source sustainable woods and finish our products in environmentally friendly finishing products. We also try to recycle as much of our workshop waste as possible.
RA Woodcraft produces top quality custom furniture, kitchens or any bespoke wood product for discerning clients. We work closely with the client to understand their needs and vision and then make that dream come true.
We love what we do and we love seeing the end results and the happy clients – this is our soul food!
