Australia’s first Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) manufacturing plant is to be built in the Albury Wodonga region, representing a $25 million investment and creating 54 local jobs. The high tech sustainable timber facility will produce 60,000m3 of CLT each year, which is enough to construct the equivalent of one Forte Melbourne – Australia’s greenest apartment building – every week.

y the time you read this our 10th annual NZ Master Joiner Awards ceremony will be over after what I hope was a great conference in Queenstown for all delegates who attended. To all the winners, congratulations and well done on your fine pieces of craftsmanship and design. Take a moment to bask in your glory as I think we are all guilty of down playing success in this country as we simply expect to be at the top of our game all of the time. To all the entrants who weren’t successful, well done on taking the time and effort to submit an entry which has seen the NZ Master Joiner Awards grow exponentially to a highly contested array of amazing workmanship that everyone should be proud of. Other things of note this time around – for those folk in the NZS:4211 programme, we have seen Masterspec grow the awareness of the compliant profiles overnight with specifiers and architects. This raises the importance of tagging the joinery units as not only does it indicate that the joinery is compliant for your client and the local body checking off the joinery, it also helps fund further research and development of the suite. There are some exciting things coming on stream to further strengthen the package. Team training is also a hot topic currently with members continually commenting that they are trying to find qualified team members. It seems the easiest way to do this is train someone with your expertise. Not only does it help you out but it keeps the craft of joinery alive and our industry thriving far into the future. Lastly, I hope for all, as we enter these dark winter months that workloads are still plentiful as we look forward to Spring and Summer. The warmer seasons will be here before we know it.

CLT is a high tech alternative to concrete, made with sustainable plantation timber. XLam has been manufacturing the innovative and versatile building material in New Zealand for five years and shipping it to Australia, in competition with European importers. XLam has been assessing possible Australian sites for the facility over the last year, and has now selected the Albury Wodonga region, with a final site to be announced in the coming weeks. Operational mid 2017, the new facility will be the sole manufacturer of CLT in Australia, and one of the most technologically advanced CLT plants worldwide.  Imported & specialty timbers • Hardwood flooring Decking & cladding • French Oak & Spotted Gum Plywood & panel products • Engineered flooring Wall lining • NaturaStone PLUS a whole lot more

Biesse Group, the Pesaro-based multinational company dedicated to manufacturing machines and systems for machining wood, glass, stone and composite materials (and listed in the STAR segment of the Italian Stock Exchange), has announced its acquisition of 100% of shares in Uniteam SpA. Since 1991, this Venetian industrial company, soon to be part of Biesse, has specialised in the design and manufacture of CNC multi-axis machining centres for wood construction materials, machining of advanced materials and a range of other special applications from automotive to prototyping, among others. This union will represent a harmonious integration of synergies, according to the heads of the two companies, and both stand to benefit from the agreement: Biesse Group will further extend its product range, penetrating the "niche" yet highly-strategic industry of timber carpentry (beams and structural façades), drawing on the expertise

of Uniteam to enhance its range of products and applications for machining plastics and advanced composite materials. This deal is part of Biesse's development and growth project, which has seen the Group expanding its business along external lines for some time. Uniteam, in turn, will benefit from the Group's undeniable international exposure and visibility, taking advantage of Biesse's status as one of the main players on the global stage in terms of industrial machines. These two companies of different sizes are both driven by the same core values, which place innovation and technology at the foundation of every project, and consider research and development to be essential ingredients for industrial growth. Both Biesse and Uniteam will be able to exploit this fusion to their benefit, whilst maintaining the individual identity and features that have led to their extraordinary success in their respective sectors. 

Another great MJ Conference in Queenstown With again a record number of entries the NZ Master Joiners Awards for 2016 have been a singular success. This year’s Supreme Award , a fabulous staircase by Charles de Lapomarede from Artisan Carpentry (his second Supreme Award in recent times) is as the judges comment at the pinnacle of the joinery trade. In a set of awards more and more dominated by kitchens it was a real treat to see Charles win the top award again. Queenstown is always a great venue and this time was no exception. Congratulations to Sue Page and her team for an excellent event. We have all the winners and comments in this issue so a good chance for all who attended to be reminded of who won what. As always, a special mention of the Apprentice Awards, without these very special people there would be no joinery industry. Well done you guys! We also have another event of interest coming up soon: the trade show from AWISA held this year in Melbourne in early July. The indication from the show organisers is this one will be the best for some time. This is the big one for those interested in what is happening and what is coming in the joinery, cabinetmaking and kitchen manufacturing sectors. Have a look at the AWISA floor plan and see who will be there and where. We have some previews of what you might expect to see there in this issue be it big end routers and systems down to small hand held tooling and the like. Micheal and I will be there as always and report on the show in our September issue. I have just recently completed a renovation at home and an interesting aspect in the kitchen was looking at drawer systems be they with or without handles, and the options for drawer organisers now available. I’ve come to the conclusion they are just as important as the drawers themselves. We have a bit of information and some visuals in this issue for you to have a look at in this surprisingly diverse product category. Business in general heading into an unusually late winter appears to be continuing in fine form. New opportunities abound everywhere, have a look at the Cutshop franchise offer in this issue, while new products are everywhere, take a gander at new product available through local distributor Parex and the new board offering from NZ Panel Group for example. I’m sure you will find something of interest in this issue Bob Nordgren

Auckland Joiners get the safety word Worksafe NZ makes presentation on new legislation In what was probably the largest single meeting organised and run by a regional Master Joiners Association, the Auckland Chapter led by their Secretary Michael Bangs managed to get 59 invitees along to a meeting sponsored by hardware manufacturers Allegion NZ at their Rosebank Rd, Avondale premises in Auckland on 2 March last. Bob Nordgren reports.

IT Bureau takes on AWISA 2016 Laminex New Zealand’s IT Bureau and imos International will have a joint stand at the upcoming AWISA 2016 conference July 6-9 in Melbourne. A must-see event for anyone in woodworking and associated industries, such as furniture manufacturers, cabinet makers, kitchen manufacturers, joiners, architects, designers, shop and office fitters, builders, and other wood, timber and panel processing industries, Laminex NZ’s Stefan Rott will be showcasing imos, our software solution for CNC and nesting machinery. Hope to see you there!

The meeting was a combined regular Auckland chapter meeting and a presentation made by Worksafe NZ and a tour around the Allegion plant. Brendon Simpson, Managing Director of Allegion NZ gave a short introduction about Allegion NZ and Brio looking at their history and products. This was followed by a presentation by Justin Michels from Worksafe NZ who gave the meeting a broad look at the key aspects of the new Health & Safety legislation to come into force on 1 April this year. His presentation drew many questions and could have gone on for far longer than it did. This was followed by a brief presentation from Jamie Potter from Hazardco promoting their system for health and safety. A short factory tour followed after which the regular Auckland JMA meeting took place. The Worksafe presentation was well received and demonstrated just how important health and safety is to members of the trades. Many thanks to Worksafe for their participation. The industry could do with more such sessions. Many thanks to Allegion NZ for providing the location and to Michael Bangs for his energy and dedication.

Jacks at AWISA If you’re looking for a friendly face at AWISA this year then the Jacks sales team will be on hand to offer a Kiwi perspective. While there’ll be no shortage of technology on show, knowing how that technology might – or might not – apply to your workshop is easier when talking to someone familiar with your business. And particularly when that person’s accent doesn’t sound like a chainsaw in your head. With this in mind, the Jacks sales team will be in Melbourne, and only too happy to talk through the various technology on show. Given the reputation of the Jacks Service team it’s no surprise we’ll also have technical staff at the show too – helping demonstrate the benefits of the Felder Group and Brandt technology at the show. If you haven’t already, please make contact with your local rep, or the Jacks office before you go so we can make sure you get quality time in front of the machines you’ve travelled to see. We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne. Jacks – 0800 522 577, or sales@

Italian furniture market on upturn from the 18th to T he general context of the Italian furniture industry has been showing positive prospects for some time now. The fact that SICAM the Pordenonebased International Exhibition of Components, Accessories, and Semi-Finished Products for the Furniture Industry already has more exhibition space booked than the 2015 edition suggests that the companies of the sector have valid reasons to look to the upcoming months with optimism. Furthermore, according to the recent “Gauge of companies” by Federlegno Arredo, as many as 48% of the companies interviewed forecast a further increase in sales in 2016, even higher than last year.

Above all driven by exports, the recovery of the Italian wood and furniture sector (which is currently worth almost Euro 27 billion, employing more than 360 thousand workers) can therefore be considered a reality. This can also be seen in the most recent data, according to which even the domestic market should show positive results. In a recent forecast report, CSIL predicted a +1.2% for the domestic market at year end. The numbers were already clear for the foreign markets in 2015: between January and September there was a 6% rise for the entire wood and furniture sector and 6.3% for furniture alone, with the best performances recorded in the United States (+23.5% for the sector as a whole), the United Kingdom (+17.8%), and in China (+9%, but +19% for furniture enterprises). The upcoming edition of Sicam will present new companies which will further enrichen the trade fair’s exhibition panel, increasingly more complete and representative of the best that the international component and accessories sector has to offer to the market. All of the pavilions of the Pordenone trade fair area will be used for Sicam 2016, which already promises to surpass the figures of 2015, when five hundred exhibiting companies from 33 countries and 17,000 visitors from

the 21st of October this year the eighth edition of SICAM is to be run in the northern Italian city of Pordenone, it promises to be one of the best ever.

more than 6,700 companies, with 29% foreigners from 96 different countries. A unique event of global calibre, the Pordenone trade fair constantly strengthens its validity in developing international business networking and, at the same time, it also maintains an undisputed appeal for the Italian furniture industry, which finds the best development opportunities of the entire sector increasing more each year. Over the coming months the events organisers will also be present at the world’s most important events in the sector: over thirty appointments in five continents, destined to bring the most qualified furniture manufacturers from all over the world flocking to the trade fair in Pordenone. Promotion in consolidated markets and development in emerging nations are the foundations of the communication strategy that the Exposicam organisational team has been implementing methodically for years. The most recent editions saw visits from new entrepreneurs from North African countries and republics from the former Soviet Union, the ASEAN area and Central America, as well as all of the countries which historically comprise the pillar of the event from Northern Europe.

Laminex New Zealand

update Trends & innovations 2016 is almost halfway over and already we’re seeing lots of exciting new developments in the market. Our Global Design team have recently visited several European international trade and design shows, providing insights into the product and design trends that are shaping our world. The focus of EuroCucina this year was how the role of the kitchen is changing in daily life. More and more we are seeing the dining room, the living room, and even the workplace brought into the kitchen as it truly becomes the hub of the home. Technology is also playing an everincreasing part in kitchen design with benchtops and work spaces automated and movable to suit the different functions of the kitchen space and even surfaces with built-in induction cooking that is invisible to the naked eye. Visit the Laminex New Zealand YouTube channel to see our videos from the event. Innovation and product performance are key to the Laminex New Zealand business and we’re pleased to announce that anti-microbial properties are now available in selected decors across our standard Formica laminate range. The active ingredient in Protec+, silver, is embedded in the laminate; therefore the antimicrobial and antifungal properties do not wipe off or leach out providing enhanced antimicrobial efficacy for the lifetime of the product. Both Formica and Laminex Protec+ laminate is certified food safe, making it the perfect choice for use in food preparation areas such as kitchens, hospitals and schools. This will be a rolling change, so please refer to availability guides for further information. Along with this added performance feature we have a colour update in our Laminex laminate range based upon locally undertaken research with some of NZ’s most respected design professionals. A selection of striking greys and warm woodgrains have been added to the range along with a new finish to bring added intrigue and texture to interior surfaces. The update launches in mid-July so keep an eye on for more information. Congratulations to all those who were finalists and winners at the Master Joiners awards at this year’s conference. We had a fantastic time in Queenstown and enjoyed chatting with so many of you and recognising your talents. Our IT Bureau team are off to AWISA in Melbourne next month showcasing our manufacturing software imos. Have a read of the AWISA preview in this issue of JOINERS Magazine and be sure to stop by and say hello to Stefan if you’re lucky enough to be visiting the show. Until next time Richard Pollington General Manager Laminex New Zealand

Caesarstone® Statuario Nuvo™

interpretations of stone, marble & concrete F ounded in 1987, Caesarstone® manufactures high-quality, premium quartz surfaces that are distributed in over 50 countries across the globe. Made from a blend of up to 93% natural quartz aggregates with pigments and polymer resins, Caesarstone products go through a detailed production process before arriving at an approved fabricator’s workshop for their final transformation.

Raw materials are carefully inspected before being blended together with pigments and resins and moulded into slabs. Each slab is subjected to 100 tonnes of pressure in a special vacuum and vibration process, followed by curing at 90 degrees for 45 minutes to ensure that it has the ultimate strength and solidity that Caesarstone is renowned for. The slabs are then gauged calibrated and polished before undergoing rigorous quality assurance. Each slab is then marked with unique slab identification, consisting of its manufacture date, batch number, colour and finish details. This confirms each slab’s authenticity providing peace of mind to every end consumer. Backed by a ten year warranty, L a m i n e x N e w Z e a l a n d ’s nationwide specification team and market-leading technical advisors means any Caesarstone specification can be made with confidence that Laminex New Zealand can provide inmarket support before and after installation.

The superior strength and flexibility, scratch, stain and heat resistance, and its non-porous nature which never requires sealing, makes Caesarstone easy to care for. Compliant with NSF 51, the international Health and Safety Foundation sanitary standard, and mould and mildew resistant, Caesarstone is perfect for residential and commercial applications where hygiene is critical such as kitchens, bathrooms and dining spaces.

Caesarstone Blue Agate™

In March 2016 Laminex New Zealand introduced three new colours to its Caesarstone range. The hero of this collection is Statuario Nuvo™, Caesarstone’s new interpretation of natural Statuario marble. It brings refined yet impressive dark veins on a white background, enriched w i t h a d e l i c a t e l y d i ff u s e d subsurface vein structure, made using Caesarstone’s proprietary technology. As a more subtle complement to the highly successful Calacatta Nuvo™ in Caesarstone’s new Supernatural Ultra range, the elegant vein structure of Statuario Nuvo™ is perfectly on trend and is the ideal choice for elegant, understated interiors.

The other two additions speak directly to the design movement of natural materials with a modern industrial feel, exposed surfaces and grey tones. Raw Concrete and Fresh Concrete will be available in Caesarstone’s new concrete finish. The concrete finishes add an industrial aged patina and feel to the surface enhancing the authentic look and yet will never require sealing. Raw Concrete is a natural soft grey colour delivering the classic industrial concrete look whilst Fresh Concrete offers the delicate and clean modern industrial appearance of fine white concrete. In addition to the existing Sleek Concrete, the range covers all bases for lovers of the concrete look. For more information about Caesarstone contact your Laminex New Zealand rep, or visit

At Conference (clockwise from top left) - Five of the six Master Joiners life members having a well earned lunch; Queenstown from the top of the Skyline Gondola; Liam Wackrow chatting with Mike McRoberts from TV3 amongst the trade stands; beers and coffees at the top of the Skyline.

Queenstown hosts the Master Joiners


ueenstown is always a great location for a get together and this year’s Master Joiners Conference was no exception. Although the weather was not the best (except for the Friday) the great numbers who attended this year made up for it. On the first day (Thursday) there were a number of events for attendees to go to. I chose the Skyline Gondola and the Luge which offered some rather spectacular views of Queenstown, something the tourists all seek when they visit this amazing place. The highlight of the following day was the address given by Mike McRoberts TV3’s Newshub anchorman and journalist extraordinaire. His stories and commentrary made for fascinating listening. Mal Corboy added a bit of glamour with his presentation looking at

the latest in kitchen design in his Parex sponsored session as well. The Friday night knees up at The Barn at Moonlight Country was a hoot what with learning how to use a dog whistle and whipping up a storm line dancing. A good time had by all! The Saturday day time entertainment varied from a scenic boat cruise to a bus tour of scenic places around the Central Otago region to a visit to the Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell for the confirmed petrolheads. I chose the more sedate and took the scenic cruise to the Mt Nicholas High Country Station. A bit nippy I have to say but most interesting all the same confirmed by some interesting facts about the place: some 100,000 acres in size with a annual rainfall of about 48 inches

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 14

and a snowline of about 3500 feet above sea level. There are some 35,000 stock being two thirds sheep and one third cattle. They produce the special wool needed to make the Icebreaker range of winter clothing. This place is big and cold but very well run. My compliments to the staff who run the Station. The Saturday night was of course Awards night. The continued success of these Awards can be seen in the increase in the number of entries in the Master Joiner awards: from 104 entries in 2014 to 232 entries this year. All credit to Charles de Lapomarede from Artisan Carpentry. His Supreme Award winning staircase was simply outstanding. His second Supreme Award win in three years. To the winning apprentices in the

NZ Master Joiners Apprentice Awards - Fraser Hall, Howie Weeden, Aaron Timmins and Ashley Hollamby, we salute your fine work and demonstration of real skills. The standard of all the winners this year was outstanding as usual. I was pleased to see Gary McNaughton win the Owen Wright Memorial Trophy for outstanding contribution to the joinery industry, well deserved Gary. Good to see the six life members all in attendance this year as well and look forward to seeing them all again next year in Taupo for the 2017 Conference. Last but not least a hearty thanks to the team from Attend Ltd who put on a really polished show. Bob Nordgren

The AWISA show – see you in Melbourne No doubt the AWISA 2016 show in Melbourne will show the leading edge of technology with the latest machinery, related equipment and products to the wood working and associated industries. Taking place from 6-9 July, the show will again also be the traditional economic barometer of the health of the industry and a measure of the commercial performance of exhibitors, plus a vital interface with existing and prospective customers. Chairman of AWISA and managing director of Blum Australia, Brett Ambrose said that across the board, industry participants generally acknowledge that the AWISA exhibition cannot be missed. “AWISA presents the best opportunity in Australasia to see the most comprehensive range of products that can assist businesses to operate more efficiently and be more profitable” “The show presents an outstanding opportunity to see the broadest spectrum of leading brands and suppliers all under the same roof.” He said Melbourne will be an exciting venue for the AWISA show. “It is a key manufacturing state and the show will present a chance to see the latest technology, trends and products only just recently on display in Europe.” “AWISA is a once every two year chance for practitioners in the trade from throughout Australia and New Zealand to catch up with colleagues and check out the stateof-play, and gauge the current and likely future business prospects in front of the industry,” said Mr Ambrose.

Experience from the 2014 AWISA show in Brisbane demonstrates that there is no doubt that AWISA attracts the right people, with about 60 per cent of attendees being owners, directors, general managers or production/ manufacturing managers. Mr Ambrose added that in the past attendance had been strong from throughout Australia and New Zealand. Many exhibitors from the last AWISA show commented on the high numbers of visitors from all states and from overseas. “We are anticipating that visitor numbers in Melbourne will be particularly strong.” “ AW I S A i s t h e l a r g e s t woodworking exhibition in the southern hemisphere and as such is a great source of help, information and inspiration. As chairman, and on behalf of the board of AWISA, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome industry people to take advantage of this truly great event and attend the Melbourne show. Managing director of leading machinery supplier Homag, Ross

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 20

Campbell warned that it was fatal to think that attending AWISA is not important. “AWISA remains a cornerstone for business in the woodworking, joinery and furniture trades in Australia and New Zealand.”

Mr Forbes said people in the industry he speaks to have a very strong affinity with AWISA. “They are looking forward to the opportunity AWISA provides to come together and enjoy each other’s company.”

Mr Campbell said Homag was excited about the show being in Melbourne. “We consider Victoria to be a major centre of cabinet making and furniture manufacturing. It’s a mature industry there and companies are at the forefront of manufacturing, machining and systems technology. So at Homag we are looking forward to Melbourne. I can say without hesitation that we will have our biggest and most sophisticated AWISA presence ever.”

As one of the largest exhibitions of any kind in Australia, AWISA has become an internationally renowned success. Day-to-day business commitments frequently make it difficult to remain aware of how and why industries are changing so the Melbourne show will offer the chance to gather information and to stay in touch with important industry developments.

“There is just no way major suppliers can afford not to be here,” said Weinig Australia’s managing director Neil Forbes. “People in the industry go to AWISA to look and if you are not here you won’t be seen. It’s a once every two years opportunity for us to show our technology and equipment.”

Admission to AWISA 2016 is free, but visitors are asked to register. Pre-registrations can only be made through the AWISA website, Airport shuttle buses have been arranged by AWISA on show days. Full details are published at 

HOMAG to showcase a wide range of products Seamless edge processing Achieving the seamless edge and having the ability to change from neutral and darker glues at the flick of a switch? With the high-performance Homag Ambition 2470 edgebander, users are able to process a wide selection of material with optimum edge quality. Increased output with a return conveyor This patented panel return conveyor system is designed to automatically return panels from an edgebanding machine to the operator. The Homag Automation TFU 140 return allows one operator to continuously work at the edgebander returning parts back to him to be off-stacked or for reintroduction into the edgebander. Zero joint edges with airTec and laserTec Homag’s hot air system airTec is both an industrial-and craft-oriented solution. To achieve a zero joint finish, the function layer on the edging material is reactivated by compressed hot air, providing seamless adhesion. Edge gluing quality that has never been seen before – Homag laserTec is the new production technology and has revolutionised the edgebanding process. Increase the quality and productivity of production in an efficient and cost-effective way using minimal resources. This technology uses a laser beam to melt the surface to be glued, which is then pressed directly onto the work parts. The result: zero joint edges of the very highest quality. New era of manufacturing: automation solutions No more wastage of expensive offcuts thanks to intelligent stock management – the Homag Automation TLF211 stands for smart logistics. It helps to reduce utilised capital from storing

BRANDT zero joint technology to suit Brandt have made zero joint technology available on entry level 1200 series edgebanders – which are ideally suited in size and capacity to smaller workshops.

2016 marks the 20th year of Jacks representing Brandt in NZ, so it is with pride that the Jacks sales team will be in Melbourne ready to greet Kiwi customers new and old. It’s no surprise that the combination of German technology and Kiwi support and backup service continues to be so successful in New Zealand, and AWISA 2016 is your opportunity to get familiar with all of the new developments. Zero joints are within your reach! Already renowned for the quality, performance and reliability of their egdgebanders, Brandt are also now firmly established as the leaders in air activated laser tape technology. There are more Brandts in NZ with this technology than from any other manufacturer.With the airTec AT10 unit launched at the Ligna show last year in Germany, Brandt have made zero joint technology available on entry level 1200 series edgebanders – which are ideally suited in size and capacity to smaller workshops. An immediate benefit of the 1200 series airTec machine is the fast warm up time. The Brandt 1230AT is ready to process material in just 2 minutes! The airTec AT10 unit also saves on energy and compressed air. Less energy required means lower running costs – just another benefit giving Brandt’s airTec zero joint technology an unbeatable price/performance ratio. A further highlight on the Brandt 1200 series are the quick-change radius profile scraper heads. Not only do these provide a high quality finish on 2mm and 1mm high gloss material but they’re quick and easy to change – requiring no additional setting up. Your benefit is a fast and flexible production system that will suit your workload.

For those looking for mid-level production of high-gloss panels with zero-joints then the 1400 series Brandt edgebander offers faster feed speeds and more automisation. The Brandt 1440AT will also be on display at AWISA. Come and see for yourself what Brandt’s airTec system is capable of. A quality edging solution for everyone If airTec isn’t for you then Brandt also continues to provide the finest quality edging on a German-engineered machine, and there the whole Brandt range of edgebanders will be in Melbourne to view. From the entry level Ambition 1100 series up, all the features you’d expect will be on display, including Brandt’s popular interchangeable glue pot, the Quickmelt pre-melter offering on-demand edging availability that’s ready when you are, and the new fast and friendly ‘powerTouch’ control system. Touch and go A highlight from the 1200 series up, the appeal of Brandt's new easyTouch control system lies in its intuitive operation. It features a clearly arranged 7" graphic display with simple touch screen operation. These days the ever increasing diversity of edge materials requires a highly flexible machine with rapid edge changing capabilities. The easyTouch's storable programmes make it possible to adapt the range of operations to meet customers' unique requirements. Come and experience powerTouch for yourself.

Felder technology and tradition Felder Group are renowned for progressing the technology in traditional woodworking machinery. Built to last, Felder Group machines use heavy-duty cast components as well as top of the line German and Austrian electrical components, so their machines are unsurpassed for reliability and durability. A level of class and quality that has made Felder the fastest growing woodworking machinery supplier in the world. Notable highlights that will be on display at AWISA include: Format-4 CNC – enjoy the benefits of European quality Taking pride of place will be two CNC machines – an area where Felder Group’s premium range of Format-4 machines is quickly gaining ground. With an unmistakable style, the ‘profit’ series of CNCs from Format-4 fulfils the complete range of processing requirements. 5-axis technology is gaining interest amongst solid wood joiners and shop fitters. The Format-4 profit H50 with a 5 axis spindle offers maximum flexibility. The smooth movement of the spindle when interpolating all axes is critical in establishing the quality of the finished workpiece. For that reason, Format-4 manufacture their 5 axis spindle inhouse, ensuring the smoothest most flexible spindle is available for their range of 5 axis CNC machines. The profit H50 on the Felder stand will be set up for demonstrating both Australasian and European style window manufacturing. Be sure not to miss this unique opportunity. In the cabinet making industry, Format-4’s profit H08 is already shaking up the Kiwi market. It’s not just the European build quality of the H08 that distinguishes itself from the pack but also the number of features that come standard with the H08 package that impress. In addition to all of the standard equipment you’d expect – a 10kW HSK63 spindle, 8 vertical drills and an 8 stage tool changer – the H08 also features a few extras that sets it ahead of the pack. The ‘Dynamic Performance Gantry’ ensures fast and smooth acceleration and deceleration performance without putting undue load and stress on the double sided servo motors. And with so much focus on air quality and safety in workshops, the optimised dust

extraction system, monitored pop-up stops and safety light barrier system ensure that the profit H08 is contributing to the conscientious employer’s efforts to provide employees with a safe and healthy working environment. Compatible with all the major CAD/CAM software packages, alternatively the profit HO8 can be bundled with Felder’s own comprehensive software suite. If you haven’t visited a Jacks showroom recently then you should plan to spend some time in front of what is quickly becoming the CNC of choice for the discerning cabinetmaker. The “X-Roll” Sliding table The precision guidingX-Roll system avoids wear, eliminates maintenance and maintains play-free accuracy over the lifetime of the saw. With no single point of contact between the bearings and the guiding track then there’s no point-load – and no opportunity for any groove to wear into the guide track. X-Roll is standard on Felder and Format-4 saws, spindle moulders and combination machines and is backed with a 10 factory warranty. The Easy-Glide tilt segment With Felder’s ‘Easy-Glide’ system a highly durable synthetic material sits within the cast iron guides in the double-trunnion system of the saw and spindle moulder units. With maximum load-bearing capacity this high-grade material eliminates the need for any lubrication of the trunnions and is thus completely unaffected by dust and totally maintenance free. Easy Glide provides smooth operation and precision movement of the saw and spindle moulder units over the life time of the machine. A 6-year factory backed guarantee applies to the Felder ‘Easy-Glide’ system.

Machines on display featuring these technologies are Format-4’s Kappa 400 X-motion panel saw, the Felder K540S panel saw and the KF700 SP Saw/Spindle combi. Also on display will be spindle moulders from Felder and Format-4, including the Profil 45 Z with overhead controller. Other traditional machines on display will include the FW 950 C wide belt sander, bandsaws, Format 4’s popular Exact 63 thicknesser, and Felder’s AD941 combi planer/ thicknesser – these last two include Felder’s legendary silentPower cutter block. The benefits of spiral cutterblocks are well known, and there are plenty of spiral blocks around New Zealand. But as with the innovations they’ve applied to woodworking machines, Felder have taken the spiral block to a new level of performance, including a proven noise reduction of at least 50% over a traditional block, and the complete elimination of lineal cutting marks as found on other spiral cutter blocks. Felder Group and Jacks welcome you Jacks staff will be on hand at the Felder Group throughout the show. To ensure you get quality time with a knowledgeable Kiwi then talk to your Jacks rep or give us a ring before you go – so we’ll be expecting you. See you in Melbourne! 

outstanding front panel alignment with very narrow reveals which can be adjusted to the accuracy of one tenth of a millimetre. AvanTech drawer cuts a fine figure with perfect sleek lines on the high quality 13 mm aluminium drawer side profiles.

Hettich is placing particular focus on drawers, hinges and sliding & folding door fittings and service offer.

The new Sensys thin door hinge impressed the 58 international jury members of the iF Design Awards this year.

It permits the use with thin door material such as 13mm compact laminate, PVC light board and bonded door panels. Thin solid front panels made, for example, of solid surface materials are also an option. The look and feel of exclusive materials can now be combined with the purist style of slender lines and narrow reveals.

The Hettich stand (603) will showcase the product launch of the new InnoTech Atira drawer system. The drawer offers a striking design with straight lines, clean contours and a selection of colours in a modern finish. The internal organisers offer many practical solutions and complement the range.

Now is the time to invest in the future It did not take long until Martin Smith and his team at Euroline recognised the benefits of their newly purchased horizontal storage system and the integration of their existing standalone nesting machines. Since the installation of the Homag Automation TLF 210 in November last year, the workflow has increased big time. “The efficiency is massive and it’ll pay off in 4 to 5 years,” says Martin, who is the general manager of the Sydney-based company. The company has now made the workflow more effective in order to remain successful on the market. Changing from old-school tomodern mindset However, Euroline was not always as forward-thinking as they are nowadays. “We were a bit oldschool,” Martin admits, “but when Alex from Homag brought up a storage system we started to change our mindset. We went to see already installed Homag storage systems at both big and small companies and could clearly see the benefits. We were then ready to try something new.” Considering the fact that they started as a small joinery in a unit block around the corner from where they are located now, their pace of development had been rapid. Founded 20 years ago, Euroline underwent radical changes in the long-term direction of the company. When Martin joined the company 11 years ago, the company from Sydney’s western suburb of Auburn changed the market they were delivering from residential to commercial. On the basis of the way they produce and the machinery setup, commercial projects suit their profile very well. Within the last years, Euroline has worked its way up and is now dealing with Tier 1 builders, which are the largest and most experienced firms in the industry. One of the largest projects they were involved with included the Sydney University School of Business.

Minimising manual handling With the implementation of the storage system, Euroline could not only increase their safety but also their productivity. Production manager Daniel Buchanan explains why, “We reduce our forklift work by 80 per cent.The time for manually loading has dramatically decreased. We were able to put our forklift driver, who is actually a machinist, back to the machine.”

Martin Smith (left) with Daniel Buchanan. “We used to accumulate our stock. Now it’s all in the system, and our office staff can see it and make the floor staff use the old boards first. We then print the reports of boards and use or move them out of the system.This is a smart way to use our stock,” Martin explains.

Being at the right place at the right time Since 1992, Euroline has built its reputation to become one of Sydney’s leading architectural joinery companies. They service a range of areas across the industry including one-off high end architectural joinery, multi floor fit-out, hospital fit-outs, health, airports and banks. Since the relocation to the current premises in Auburn 8 years ago, the company has made its biggest move taking into account that they grew their staff from 8 to 60 during that time. After putting the storage system into place, Euroline didn’t increase their manpower but did increase their capacity. “We want to keep our number of staff stable and rather invest in more automation,” Martin says. He continues, “Now is the time to invest in the future. We are busy for the next 3 to 5 years, and therefore, we made the investment last year. We have to keep up if we want to be in the right place with our infrastructure in order to maximise profit.” Finding stock by just one click The TLF is an all-rounder for a wide variety of panels. It helps to reduce utilised capital from storing up to nesting or sawing and the material used is coordinated with the ordering system and the

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 28

order planning. Running orders over night is not a problem, and there’s no more manual handling necessary. The TLF sets the program a night before, picks orders over night and is ready for production the next morning. Furthermore, stock-keeping is managed as needed as well as offcuts managed automatically. It not only shows what is in stock but also precisely where it is. Additionally, the scanning of bar codes provides a quick integration of panels into the system. Even offcut panels are integrated in the storage and can be used for further cutting. The management of stock is the biggest benefit for Martin. “We used to accumulate our stock. We found sheets of 8 years old. Now it’s all in the system, and our office staff can see it and make the floor staff use the old boards first. We then print the reports of boards and use or move them out of the system. This is a smart way to use our stock,” he explains. It also allows Euroline to have more variety of stock. All stock that comes off the truck is directly transferred into the system. “Now we are ordering just in time,” Martin says who appreciates the fact that everyone is now able to see what is in the storage. “We used to have spreadsheets but now it’s just a click.”

In relation to this, Euroline is able to prevent any damage that is caused to boards by moving them around. Daniel says, “The storage takes the stock and loads it directly into the infeed bay. The amount of boards the TLF can move is incredible.” More output by integration of existing stand-alone machines “We didn’t shop around,” Martin says with regard to the decision for a storage system from Homag Automation, reinforced by the fact that Homag is able to integrate existing stand-alone nesting machines into a storage system. Their Weeke Vantage 100 is fully integrated; the 10-year old nester of the same kind is partly integrated. Nevertheless, the team at Euroline can clearly see the further benefits of such integration as Daniel illustrates, “In connection with the nesting machines, we don’t need to stop our work and don’t have downtime.” Having found “the perfect employee who ticks by itself without any sick days” will be the key to Euroline’s success, Martin says. With 3,500 square metres factory space, Euroline accommodates in-house spray painting facilities, state-of-art machinery, dedicated assembly areas and large storage facilities under one roof, which allows them to continue the highest level of quality control ensuring they maintain their reputation in the industry. 

Under the stewardship of owners David and Debbie Sutherland the business, which has gone from strength to strength, offers a quality contract cutting service to anyone be they DIY or the trades. JOINERS Magazine spoke with the pair about their venture and what it means for them as well as their clientele. Another way to do business David and Debbie emigrated with their family from South Africa over a decade ago. David has a background in corporates in the service industry. “Many years ago back in South Africa I used to run my own business and I have always remembered that time. Always on the lookout for a good opportunity, the challenge of working with wood and being self employed again caught my eye. Being able to create something in a manufacturing environment really excited me. More importantly, the Cutshop concept financially made sense and right now was the perfect time to introduce what can only be described as a unique commercial offering “ comments David. “By unique I mean Cutshop is a highly flexible contracting service only. As the patter goes we cut, edge, drill and then deliver according to the client’s instructions. For commercial cabinetmakers, shop fitters, kitchen manufacturers and indeed anyone including DIY, that needs something cut, edged or drilled Cutshop provides those services which save time allowing businesses to take on more business and grow. No one else makes quite the same offer. It’s important to note that the Cutshop model does not look to compete with its clientele but in fact looks to enhance their opportunities. The challenge for me is to convince people that there is another way to do business.” Flexibility and access to technology Flexibility and access to the latest in available technology are prime attractants for potential clients. The key is to be able to increase JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 30

turnover for little capital investment thus improving profitability. With five on the floor from a modern 340 square metre factory site in Rosebank, Cutshop offers an end to end manufacturing service or customers can choose just those services they require. For the commercial cabbie or kitchen manufacturer they can provide a cutting, edging and drilling service and supply a kitchen in a knockdown form already customised to their specifications. “With our laser taping service, customers have the flexibility to use only the services they require. For example, we could cut, edge and drill complete doors or just do the edging, depending on the customer’s requirements. This is again quite unique in the industry.” says David. The real advantage is access to the latest in machining technology including the latest German made Lumina 1586 in line edgebander from HolzHer. Using Near Infrared Radiation technology with their Glu Jet System and LTRONIC laser edging unit the 1586 makes for excellent invisible joints. Their Thermwood CNC flatbed router imported direct from the States is capable of cutting both

simple as well as complex designs in sheet sizes up to 3660 by 2100. David comments “The edge we offer both the commercial client as well as the DIYer is a turnaround time of as little as four to five days because we are geared to short production runs.” Cutshop offers a simplified design service using its e-Cabinet software which enables clients to provide their own digital design files. Easy to use, the software is unique to Cutshop’s Thermwood CNC machinery. An economic, effective, quality service is at the heart of the Cutshop offer. Debbie, who runs the business administration, comments “It has been a steep learning curve for David and I over the past six months. There is a real depth of knowledge required involving almost a new language and a different perspective. Wood joinery is in fact just part of what we cut. As well as MDF, solid wood, veneers and plywood we also cut acrylic, Perspex, particle board, aluminium, ACM, expanded foam, polystyrene and plastic foam. We are always learning and improving our efficiencies and growing the business just as we help others to do the same.” For more info, contact David or Debbie or Sutherland at Cutshop North Shore

taming the kitchen drawer Open Space

Kitchen drawer; it’s a little phrase with a loaded meaning, often conjuring up images of a mish mash of odds and sods and a ‘dumping ground’ drawer so loaded to the gunnels that it won’t open without a bit of poking and prodding! And who hasn’t experienced the frustration of a rattling search through the kitchen utensil drawer trying to find the one thing that always seems to hide right at the back!? Fortunately there are ways and means to tame the tangle in kitchen cutlery and utensil drawers … and Access Group have an option for all needs and budgets. OPEN SPACE is brand new and features European designer good looks. It’s a freeform system that utilises plastic profiles, steel dividers and wooden boxes, allowing complete customisation of drawer spaces.

Practical Storage with Hideaway Bins


hen designing a new kitchen or organising an existing kitchen we need to consider creating a functional, ergonomic and efficient work area. Most important to the design is the storage. The kitchen should be clean and uncluttered, so extra attention is often required when it comes to storage. Hideaway Bins are an ideal use as a hidden storage solution within the busy kitchen area ~ keeping waste and recycling out of sight. A Hideaway Bin is a practical solution that slides away under the bench and is completely hidden from sight until needed. The bins are both ergonomic and functional as they are designed to be mounted at bench height and pull out towards the user, allowing easy

disposal of waste without having to bend inside low cupboards. The units are easy to clean and maintain. This provides a simple answer to storing waste and recycling within the kitchen. Each bin comes complete with bucket/s and a liner holder, designed to hold the rubbish bag firmly in place. All buckets fit standard bin liners available from local supermarket chains. Three intelligently designed, New Zealand made ranges are available, offering a simple and stylish storage solution. Each range has its own distinctive features and a variety of bucket sizes and configurations. Unique to Hideaway Bins is the friction-fitted lid that remains in the carcass when the bins are open and closes down onto the

Innovative design, gives you restaurant quality extraction... efficiently & silently!

Silent Rangehoods New Zealand’s quietest, strongest & most efficient rangehoods

A common complaint about rangehoods is the noise. Schweigen solves this problem by removing the motor from the hood and installing it outside. This ensures silent extraction in your kitchen. The highly-efficient German IsoDrive Motor uses all its energy for extraction rather than pushing air up against gravity and can be mounted on the roof, wall or eave. Schweigen has a wide selection of rangehood options designed to best suit any kitchen. MOTOR MOUNTING OPTIONS

A common complaint regarding rangehoods is the noise. Schweigen solves this problem by removing the motor from the hood and installing it outside the house. This ensures silent extraction in the kitchen. The highly efficient German IsoDrive Motor uses all its energy for extraction, rather than pushing air up against gravity. This lets the rangehood concentrate all of its power on its primary purpose of removing large volumes of cooking steam, smoke, grease and odours from the home silently. Not only do Schweigen Rangehoods have innovative silent fan technology, but they also have a selection of rangehoods designed to best suit individual kitchen requirements.

In most cases the systems are very simple to install and have the flexibility to suit most mounting requirements. They can be placed on a rooftop, under eaves and on external walls. Each unit comes with a mounting flange, a bell mouth adaptor and fire resistant ducting. With sleek ultra-modern European designs, the range-hoods also boast commercial grade stainless steel filters and a timer with auto shut-off function allowing you to enjoy your cooking without having to worry. Stylish, practical and silent, Schweigen rangehoods are the perfect addition to any modern kitchen.

new router makes all the difference Waipukurau Joinery’s Greg O’Kane has worked hard since he set up his business in 2006 and has created an enviable reputation for quality kitchen and bathroom manufacture, shop fittings, staircases and joinery. A member of the Master Joiners he has developed a strong working relationship with local builders, developers and other general clients. Central to his ongoing success has been not only his passion for what he does but also his approach to business and the incorporation of the right technology for the job. “When I started the business I had all the basic machinery to start off with. As it progressed I saw the value in the nested base model of manufacturing kitchens and cabinetry, the main products I make. I realised it was all about greater productivity while saving time and money” comments Greg. It all gelled when Steve Fifield from ProForm CNC Ltd called in on him a while back. “After a lot of discussion about the advantages offered by CNC router technology he showed me their AT25/13 flatbed router model which got me interested pretty much straight away.

Greg O’Kane with his AT25/13 flatbed router.

It has proved to be a great machine for a price within my budget from the get go when Proform installed it some nine months ago.” Greg recalls. A gantry style machine with a heavy duty solid steel machine frame construction, the AT 25/13 was just right for Greg’s operation. “It only takes up a small floor area (3m by 1.5m) but it has plenty of grunt with its 4.5 kW main spindle and two 1.5 kW drilling spindles. It really is a solid workhorse. The Windows operating software in the onboard PC is really user friendly with the added bonus of having a network interface allowing for file sharing.” Greg points out.

Since he has had the machine in place things have gone along at a pace. He continues “It’s the speed of the operation. It has capabilities beyond what I currently need but as part of my nested base manufacturing it allows for higher production and when combined with my other machines, allows for their better utilization. I used to do about two kitchens a month but that has risen since I have had the ProForm router. I have good relationships with my various suppliers including Laminex NZ who supply my board. I found all of a sudden I couldn’t order the product fast enough! Proform has been very good too when it comes to advice and importantly service. They are there when you need them to be.” And the future? “It’s just a matter of keeping on keeping on. Making even better use of the machinery I have and continuing to produce efficiently good quality product.”

Why is MKT laser edgetape so much better than other laser edgetape? The incredibly hard functional layer (the back side of laser edgetape that contains polymers to help it melt faster) on MTK’s Alpha Tape Zero PP helps create a seamless edge. A soft functional layer catches dirt and looks like a glue joint over time, defeating the purpose of using laser edge technology. Rule of Thumb!

Dongwha whiteboard’s first birthday D

ongwha New Zealand have gone ahead in leaps and bounds despite their low key entry to the whiteboard market just 12 months ago. “Entering a mature market with a commodity product was always going to present a challenge but we have had a very solid first year with significant upside ahead of us” comments Dongwha’s Jeff Davenport. “With the addition of a new Auckland based sales representative in Craig Doughty and a very competent office back up in Liesl Waldek at our new, bigger office and warehouse facility in Manukau, Auckland, 2016 is looking very positive.”

Dongwha New Zealand started out as a New Zealand manufacturer of MDF based in Southland some ten years ago having purchased the manufacturing plant from US company Rayonier. In 2014 Dongwha expanded their New Zealand operation with the decision to purchase and install a Melamine press in Taupo and start production of Dongwha Whiteboard. With little fanfare in early 2015, Dongwha New Zealand entered the market with an initial offering of Dongwha Whiteboard only. A year on and with several tweaks to the press and operating procedures, production is going very well. “To try and keep costs down and be in a position to offer very competitive rates to the market, we have kept things pretty simple by offering pack lots of twenty and fifty sheets, three plate finishes in Natural, Satin and Gloss and minimal flashy promotion.” comments Jeff.

In the South Island a relationship has been formed with one of the larger distributors. Their new facility in Manukau has seen a marked improvement in delivery times Jeff says “More often than not, if product is ordered by 2pm we will have it to the customer the following day, anywhere in the North Island.”. The company has grown in its first twelve months with many now using Dongwha Whiteboard to due to its quality, availability and pricing. “We are more than happy to discuss opportunities with anyone who may like to call,” says Jeff.

Ian Lee from Linkuppaints Hamilton ia always ready to assist Kingwood Furniture offer a real quality product, with a great finish and top delivery.

Custom made and bespoke If you are looking for unique one off furniture items and customised, made to measure dining, lounge and bedroom suites manufactured using sustainable or recycled materials such as mahogany, macrocarpa, walnut oak, ash and rimu - new NZ and recycled - and even plywood and melamine board created in any style from traditional to contemporary, then Kingwood Furniture based in Hamilton are a rare gem. Bob Nordgren from JOINERS magazine paid them a visit to find out more about their superbly finished product. Kingwood Furniture and Timber Machining as it is now known was established back in 1998 by owner and manager Vaughan King. “It’s really a family business as my brother Evan manages the factory and sales while our mother Glynis runs the office side of things” comments Vaughan. What makes the business tick I asked. “Good staff and attention to detail both in the manufacturing and most importantly the finishing stage.” says Vaughan. With a 1000m2 factory and some eleven staff the factory turns out a lot of wooden furniture. Although there is a very traditional look to much of the furniture it is produced using modern technology. “We have over the years brought in various flatbed CNC routers including a Pratix 48 NST from SCM” comments Vaughan “and we bought in a new Biesse edgebander this year.” This has enabled the business to improve efficiencies and make it a more flexible operation producing a wider range of the quality, well made product it is known for. A member of the FITEC, ‘Custom made’ and ‘bespoke’ are oft heard words when talking about Kingwood Furniture. It is often a case of ‘you supply the wood and we make’. The business does a lot of work for other joiners as well as office fitouts these days. The key though is quality, finish and delivery. Of particular significance is their use of stains and clear finishes. “The right stains and finishes are really important for us” Vaughan explains. “We have a solid relationship with Linkup paints Hamilton who supply us with all our finishing product needs.” To get the right colours and finishes what do you use? “We have been using PPG product for many years now as their product is so user friendly and they have such a good colour range and colour matching system using their Merlin software. Of real note is their NGR 190 Stain range. The box the samples come in acts as a really good selling tool at the same time. No one else does it as good as them. We also make up a lot of

stains ourselves to add to the library of stains we already have access to.” The range of product the business makes (dealing direct to the public as well I might add) is really impressive. In recent times the business has also focused on their timber machining services to the commercial and building industries producing such things as long run weatherboards, t&g flooring, skirtings, architraves, resawing and timber dressings. “Componentry is a growing business for us as well. Wood making allows for a wide range of product to manufacture such as flat pack furniture, ceiling panels, craft beer crates, a huge variety of large and small components and trophy bases to name but a few. Everything we do is designed to meet customer demand and their requirements.” says Vaughan. In the world we live in today it is good to see a burgeoning wood furniture making business doing well.

Linkup Paints Hamilton is also a family owned business. Alan and Joan Adamson established the business back in 1982 and operate from their modern, purpose built site in Killarney Lane. It is a major player in the paint supply scene in Hamilton and greater Waikato and King Country areas. With four reps on the road and another half dozen in their main Hamilton office and showroom, part of their success lies in servicing a number of industries such as automotive, industrial, marine and the residential and commercial wood finish market. Marcel Koretz, their Regional Sales and Business Development Manager comments “We take a very much team approach based around a same day colour matching service wherever possible. We pride ourselves on a professional approach utilising the well known Merlin colour matching software from PPG Industries, probably the longest standing paint brand we sell, using the weight rather than the somewhat less accurate volumetric method. Ian Lee, our colour magician as we call him, heads up the team.” PPG Industries take a proactive stance regularly updating with any changes as well as any new products to their paint and stain ranges.

The Biesse Stream is easily interchangeable between the AirForce system and the PUR glue system.

one edgebander several options In 2014 Christchurch based joinery manufacturer Sockburn Joinery purchased a new Biesse Stream edgebander with a dual edging system allowing for options in edgebanding and giving the company versatility in what they can offer clients. Owner Tony Lemmens recently spoke to JOINERS Magazine about how the new machine, along with developments in board and tape technology are changing the finish options on edgebanding for door or furniture panels. Two years on from purchasing the Biesse Stream Tony is pleased with what he has bought. “Traditionally the edgebander, with fast moving parts, heat and glue involved, has been one of the most difficult machines in the shop to run and maintain. This is no longer the case with the Stream, its electronics and computer systems control all aspects of its performance making it a very economic and user friendly machine, which delivers a great finished product with less skill and labour than previously required.” The Stream has dual hot air (AirForce) and PUR glue systems, with a quick and simple changeover meaning both can easily be used as required.

“The PUR glue system gets a lot of use. It is superior to the old PVA system as it has a much finer glue line and superior adhesion qualities. A further advantage is the finish quality of the products coming off the line, they require almost no clean up. In fact cleaning time in general of the machine as well as the product has been substantially reduced. “The AirForce system is great, and becoming more important as an alternative to more expensive lacquer and paint finishes. When using acrylic high gloss board the finish is perfect with virtually no glue line. We are getting more and more requests from architects and specifiers to use this option and as the colour range and availability of laser edge tape continues to expand I would expect this trend to continue.

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 44

“It was important for us to have a machine with this capability as it extends our versatility and ensures we have options available for clients who want them.” Tony and Sockburn have been Biesse clients for a long time and he has consistently found them a good firm to deal with. “Biesse have a substantial slice of the machinery market in New Zealand and have attained a size which allows them to employ sufficient technicians and engineers to ensure they can cover support requirements, which means they are available when you need them. Their global significance in the woodworking and panel processing sector also means their technological developments are at the fore front

in producing machinery which continually looks to improve on production cost and quality. The Biesse Stream is a good example of this - simple to run and maintain it has taken a traditionally temperamental area of our business and made it less so, while at the same time enabling us further options for ever more discerning clients.” 

Steve’s Joinery (left) and JJ Cabinets & Stone (above) both began using Cabinet Vision for design and manufacture recently and have a similar story regarding its ease of use and usefulness.

Cabinet Vision proves easy to use James Yang from JJ Cabinets & Stone in Auckland and Steve Walak from Steve’s Joinery in Queenstown both found the move to a CNC set up made a lot easier through their purchase of Cabinet Vision. We spoke to them about their selection process and experience in learning to use Cabinet Vision. Previously from a construction background James Yang set up JJ Cabinets & Stone two years ago with the North Shore based Auckland company predominantly manufacturing kitchens, wardrobes and vanities. Needing a software package for design and to run his CNC James spoke to those around him and researched on line, googling joinery forums and blogs for information and opinion on different programmes. “I read all I could on peoples experience with CNC software, watched demos and sought advice from Machines R Us who sold us our CNC. Weighing it all up I settled on Cabinet Vision. I liked that it was a specific product for cabinet construction and from the demonstrations I had seen it appeared relatively simple to use and very practical in the manner it transferred information through to the CNC. With a background in architecture and building James was familiar with software use but new to Cabinet Vision. “I was designing straight away,” says James. “ I had a day on site training with Phil Smith and Jason (from Joinery IT who represent Cabinet Vision in New Zealand) plus a couple of online sessions and found from there I could pretty much work through it myself.

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 48

“I am now using the software everyday and I love it. It is great from a sales, design and production viewpoint. It is a good selling tool as clients can see exactly what their kitchen will look like and can make live changes regarding colours and textures or indeed layout. “Material and cutting lists are automatically generated from the design process and easily readied and transferred through to our CNC ensuring no duplication of data entry or error opportunity. “Where I have found Phil and Jasons ongoing support very good is in their assistance in upgrading our hardware library. If we start to use a new piece of hardware I simply give the manufacturers supplier code to Joinery It and using TeamViewer they upload it to our system very quickly and it is ready to use.” Steve Walak from Steve’s Joinery in Queenstown has also been using Cabinet Vision for around a year and a half and has a similar story to tell. The company whose work is split around 50/50 between residential and commercial work moved to a CNC nesting set up in 2014 and use Cabinet Vision for design and manufacture.

“When we first looked at changing our manufacturing process I was looking at a second hand machine and the guy I was looking to buy off was using Cabinet Vision and I was struck by how easy it looked to use,” says Steve. “I then went online and trialled a sample copy so by the time I purchased my own copy I was pretty aware of what I was buying and what it could do. To be honest I didn’t have too many questions for Phil and Jason during the training period but they have been great on the occasions since when I have needed guidance I have simply rung up and they have gone online and sorted it out.” “It does almost everything we need, once you have set your library and methods the way you want, designing and drawing up a job can be very quick and automatically generates the material, parts and cutting lists.

Nested sheets of high value veneer can be processed at one end of the Pratix and solid wood furniture at the other end.

small numbers big numbers good numbers Soon after starting Alfa Furniture Ltd 16 years ago Simon McKechnie shifted his manufacturing method to a CNC set up. Last year he purchased his third CNC, an SCM Pratix Z5 52 5-axis machining centre, from John Fleet at Machines R Us. The machine offers double ended, flat bed and pod & rail configurations easily interchangeable as needed. Simon tells JOINERS Magazine how the Pratix has improved the company’s ability to manufacture complex units quickly and economically in any number. Alfa Furniture Ltd are a company that tend to operate under the radar partly because their clients sometimes like it that way but also because they are as busy as they want to be. The company is primarily a furniture manufacturer doing contract manufacturing for hotels and retail chains as well as custom furniture for high end residential fit outs. Simon has been running a CNC set up for 13 years and credits much of the company’s success to that fact, he realises the importance of machinery selection. Until recently Alfa Furniture Ltd had been using a flat bed router plus a pod & rail machine as they alternated from panel and veneer work through to solid timber shaping. Early last year when Simon decided the aging pod &

rail needed replacing he looked for a dual capability machine that could do both jobs, with the original flat bed being demoted to back up. “We researched the major brands to compare performance and price and eventually settled on the Pratix Z5 52 from SCM. I liked the proven nature of the SCM brand and have a good long term relationship with John Fleet. In the past his advice has been invaluable, he does what he says he will do and is easy to contact if you need him,” says Simon. “The Pratix gives great flexibility, it is easily interchangeable between flat bed and pods, in any combination at each end, plus we can double end with it - setting one side while the other is cutting

- meaning it is very efficient and easily operated by one man. “We have just completed a 130 room hotel fit out for the Accor chain - beds, TV cabinets, bed side tables, dining arrangements - in five weeks from order to delivery. This machine means we can run hard out when we need to. “The beauty of the new set up is that the 5th axis gives us the ability to do small runs of very complex units, maybe 20 chairs, which wouldn’t be cost effective done in any other way. It offers a great deal of manufacturing flexibility - complex compound mitre joints are easily done - planing, boring or sawing heads are easily swapped and the surface finish coming off the machine is virtually paint quality.

“The install went well, not many of these models have been sold locally so it was a new process for John and his team as well as us. But we worked through it well together and since installation the machine has been utterly reliable in performance, not a thing has gone wrong with it. “I have had some good guys work for me over the years but the real viability of the business depends on the right machinery and manufacturing set up and the purchase of this 5-axis from SCM confirms that for me - a fantastic all round machine that suits us well.” 

Coming in four types (Standard, Super ECO, ECO and Super Efficiency) Binks® filter paper is now available in New Zealand.

a superior design from Binks® Spray booth filter paper is an everyday cost applicable to pretty much every spray finishing operation. What if you could find a filter paper that has a better life expectancy and hence a longer effective working life while still offering optimum performance and consequently saves you money? Leading American brand Binks® from Carlisle Fluid Technology have through superior design done just that. Binks® disposable filters consist of two pieces of heavy kraft, 100% recycled paper made to the highest technical standard. The accordion style structure is not only glued but stapled together during its manufacture which gives it additional strength and rigidity, a type of construction no other filter manufacturer offers. The Binks® filter features a unique expansion strap on the rear that ensures the right spacing of eight corrugations to every running 30.4cm guaranteeing optimum and superior filter performance. No bounce Back of overspray Lets get technical for a moment. bhese filters use a combination of impingement and inertia separation to capture the overspray droplets suspended

in the airstream passing through it. The larger droplets tend to impinge and be retained by the front V shaped surface of the filter preventing the bounce back of overspray while the accelerating air stream carries the vast majority of the mid and smaller sized droplets through the network of circular holes spread across the face of the filter. Design is to the fore: the forward momentum of the rapidly moving droplets separates them from the air stream which makes four quick and violent directional changes and so deposits the droplets into the deep interior V pockets formed by each pleat. The Binks ® filter offers real and important benefits to the spray booth operator because the accordion style, stapled pleated construction captures overspray efficiently, lasts three to five times

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 54

longer than ordinary dry filters and helps create an improved brighter working environment. No droplet re-launch A common problem with traditional mesh filters occurs when they are used for slow drying coatings. During the drying time the constant airflow can drag out the still wet particles trapped in the mesh and relaunch them to migrate through the system. The Binks® filter design has in effect created a blind alley into which once the droplets are driven they cannot escape and so re-launch into the air stream. High holding capacity for over-spray means longer life span The superior holding capacity is directly related to the size and depth of the filter pocket, a full 6cm deep. This leads to lower

frequency of filter change, lower booth maintenance and fewer filters need be in stock, making for a more cost effective operation. During the loading phase of the Binks® filter the airflow stays free while the filter loads with paint whereas a mesh filter tends to load quickly which means paint will seal its face and prevent optimum booth airflow and so under utilise it’s full depth potential. With the slower increase in static pressure with the buildup of paint the Binks® filter offers three major advantages: firstly, the airflow remains evenly distributed over the entire extraction surface of the booth, secondly, the air flow around the parts to be sprayed or coated, stays uniform and thirdly, the operator stays in an environment of cleaner air. Binks® Filters can be used on any liquid overspray in the general finishing industry. They are supported by a full technical data report, they are ATEX approved and backed up by Finishing Brands ISO credentials.

Biesse Think4ward Every year Biesse put on a stunning in-house show with the very latest the Italian giant has to offer. It’s an opportunity to not only show off their latest technology but also to connect with their loyal customers. It is quite a show: all the Biesse partner companies are there including the many software providers who are able to link up with Biesse machines for seamless screen-to-machine production. Manufacturers need the very latest equipment, product, software and advice and Biesse was able to deliver on all fronts at the 2016 Biesse Think4ward event held in Sydney in March. Philip Ashley reports from the event. Biesse displayed a wide range of woodworking equipment complemented by their glass, stone and now plastics processing equipment from their eight manufacturing sites worldwide. Intermac specialises in multi-function work centres, machines and systems for cutting glass, and the production of CNC work centres for the processing of natural and synthetic stone. Busetti produce drilling machines, doubleedging machines and systems, also for glass. The new Biesse Plast plastics-processing range was represented by the Rover Plast 1530 and 1224 machines. Released in Milan last year; this exciting addition to the Biesse line-up was shown for the first time in Australia at Visual Impact in Melbourne late last year. Of great interest to stone processors is the partnership of Intermac and Donatoni with machines on show in Sydney. Announced last September during the Marmomacc 2015 stone fair in Verona, Donatoni combines its many years of experience and know-how with Biesse’s Intermac brand to produce the world’s most technologically advanced bridge saws for the cutting of stone. The Biesse group is as versatile as it’s ever been and their range and expertise continues to grow. For the woodworking sector, three Rover B machines including the Rover B Edge 5-axis machine were on display. A fully-operational Winstore installation demonstrated the versatility of automated panel sorting to several machines at the one time. Specialised boring equipment included the Bre.Ma. EKO 902, fitted with an automatic panel return and demonstrated the speed and performance of these space-saving vertical-boring and inserting machines. Two Viet sanders, a twin-pusher sizing saw and five edgebanding machines including the Biesse AirForce zero-glue line system demonstrated the quality and performance of Biesse’s latest technologies. It’s an exciting time for the Biesse brand. Worldwide the company ended 2015 with a 21.6% increase in sales and looks set to continue the trend in 2016. In Australia, 2015 produced the highest ever turnover and Biesse’s Oceania CEO Luke Tenaglia reports 2016 is just as promising with a great start to the year. Luke said that the next few years will be a fantastic opportunity for the industry. Machinery has never been more affordable, not only because of the value of the Australian dollar but the fact that machines have become cheaper to build. A Rover B will cost the same this year as it did ten years ago but you get so much more for your investment.

Biesse Oceania CEO Luke Tenaglia (left) with local Mayor Frank Carbone who opened the show.

Two years ago Luke set out to transform Biesse. Having been with the company since his mid-20s, Luke has seen the highs and lows of the industry and has an empathy with Biesse’s customers. The vision was to change the company into a service-oriented business. Biesse Australia now employs two and a half times as many staff as two years ago. There are currently over 90 Biesse employees Australiawide and 50 of those are service personnel. Luke has 40 technicians on the road specialising in the various Biesse technologies – an edgebander will be serviced and diagnosed by an edgebander specialist so the best outcome is always guaranteed. The specialisation also applies to the sales staff with product specialists available for every technology. Biesse used to concentrate on high-end equipment. They still produce some of the finest machines available but in recent times they have introduced more entry-level machines into the range. The aim is to satisfy all of the market from the first CNC experience right up to the top end of high-tech manufacturing. Biesse can now equip any workshop with a range of equipment, software and tooling over a range of materialsmanufacturing solutions. The synergies between

Luke predicts the industry will consolidate over the next few years as the population continues to increase and new dwellings are built. New materials and design trends will impact the building industries and Biesse will take this into the AWISA exhibition in Melbourne this year with a display featuring alternate and advanced materials processing equipment. Wood, panels, stone, glass and plastic will all feature. Biesse has become a one-stop shop for all manufacturing professionals. Luke said that: “2016 will be a ripper year for AWISA and it will become more diversified”. Think4ward Inside 2016 was a resounding success. Biesse is not just about bringing their extensive range of equipment but providing a complete manufacturing solution. Biesse partners supplying abrasives, ducting, business management software, board products, compressed air, furniture fittings, edgings, glass and adhesives all complement the 100 tons of working machinery on display. If you wanted more, industry experts gave fascinating talks on subjects from lean manufacturing to design trends and industry economic forecasts. It’s not a Biesse show it’s an industry event. If you missed this one, leave space in your diary for Inside 2017 – it’ll be a blast! 

eliminating common mistakes in cabinetmaking In the cabinet making industry there are some common pains that are experienced. Some creative methods are used to overcome them but in most cases, hours each day are wasted trying to micro manage a typical kitchen business and make it function smoothly. Crisis management and apologetic management styles are staining the industry causing a case of overpromising and under delivering. Up until now there have been few effective management systems built with the cabinet maker in mind. Let’s have a look at some of these common pains and find out how they may be overcome in one management solution: Wasting time with quoting customers who never order Few things are more frustrating than investing precious time working out quotations for potential buyers who never end up ordering. Manual calculations of materials and margins make a quotation a time consuming task. Customers change their minds which means repeating the process again resulting in more wasted. What makes quoting a complex exercise may be caused by many different variables including: • suppliers that are constantly changing prices. Most systems require constant manual updating of all suppliers in order to quote effectively. • custom cabinet requests means manual calculations before being able to quote.

• changes in a design proposal often means starting all over again with the re-calculation of materials. • certain cabinets require more time to build than others and the labour component is often forgotten or under-quoted. The solution - Easyquote software makes supplier catalogue prices available as they are updated. With your discounts and margins being retained with each update, any price updates are automatically applied to your own range of units. Parametrically calculated material costs are changed live as cabinet sizes are changed and automatic surcharges may be applied based on rules that you set avoiding under-quoting for complex cabinet changes. Forgetting to follow up on quotes and miss deals Nobody has a prefect hit rate, however increasing the success rate using only your current leads can increase turnover. Not all customers order after the first quote and failure to follow up effectively your prospects may result in them looking for another kitchen supplier The solution – Easyquote keeps track of your quotes, leads and pending deals in an intuitive, simple way allowing you to increase your hit rate by reminding you to follow them up via email, text message or phone. Ordering your materials and stock incorrectly Selling a kitchen is one step. Another is to order the materials of that kitchen correctly across m u l t i p l e s u p p l i e r s . Wi t h many projects in progress simultaneously, keeping track of what must be ordered and what has already been ordered can end

up to be a long paper trail and potential chaos when deadlines are missed due to stock shortages. Placing orders for items that are in stock also puts a strain on cash-flow. The solution – Easyquote places all purchase orders for you including lead time allowance per supplier, overview of all expected deliveries on a day\week basis and a proactive overview of all orders on one screen. Stock modules inform you to pull stock rather than order if available. Managing all projects at once Projects are at various stages at any given time and knowing what is required next within each project is often left to memory. The multitasking of all projects without any system causes frustration on staff and the customer. Long hours and last-minute decisions increase stress levels and create unnecessary situations. Imagine being able to know the stage each project is currently at and what action is needed in order to move it along to its next phase in seconds. The solution – Easyquote displays all projects using self-defined customised milestone columns on one screen. This means that at any time, you are able to pinpoint a project’s progress and take action fast as it progresses through its stages. Keeping customers and staff informed about their tasks To deliver a kitchen in the agreed time requires good communication between staff. It requires all staff to manage their many tasks in sequence in order to reach the end goal in the agreed time. Frustration and crisis management are the order of the day with no logical process system.

The solution – Easyquote uses dynamic workflow to send tasks to the relevant staff as and when required based on certain predefined tasks linked to stages. This intuitive module means that each staff member is informed of his tasks across all projects and is required to action them and tick them off as they are populated on his reminder home screen. Not knowing how your business is doing? Do you have methods to identify the success rate of your sales team? What payments are due, which debtors have missed their obligations? What the total turnover per supplier is so that you can negotiate the best conditions? The solution – Easyquote uses a series of graphs and reports to display at your fingertips the info that you require, allowing you to know what the real performance of your business is at any time.

Easyquote is a business management solution for cabinet makers that adds real value to your business. Find the cure to the common pains in the industry by contacting Compusoft EQ Pacific on +61 3 9095 6301 or visit

Make your home something to talk about with Ram Hardware Products to suit all rolling barn door requirements.

Rolling barn door hardware Rolling Barn Doors have been around for hundreds of years; initially used to hold large, heavy doors on barns. The sliding mechanism allowed for the large doors to open and close easily without relying on hinges and constant swinging to uphold and last over time. Over time and as popularity grew the simple design began to take shape and rustic renditions and wheels became a standard and an expression. In recent years the classic barn door technology has made way into the home.

Pocket doors (cavity sliders) have been around and causing problems for decades. Everything from the door being jammed, being difficult to slide, and even having the small parts and wheels fail or fall off the track. At some point, the idea to move interior the style and function of rolling barn door hardware was realized. There are countless benefits in this; • Style - allows for individual, creative expression with both the door and hardware. • Save Space - rather than having to deal with the in-swing and out-swing of a standard door, a barn door needs only the wall space to the side in which it will slide. • Cover - barn doors can be used to cover openings between rooms too large for

swinging doors, and can also slide over entertainment centers, mirrors and windows. Because the traditional rustic look does not fit everyone’s style or decor, more modern and contemporary designs have been created. RHP has the largest range of rolling door hardware in NZ and is bringing you the very best rolling door hardware on the American market – “Quiet Glide” by Custom Service Hardware. Ram Hardware Products also offer a range of Rolling Ladder Hardware and Hidden Storage Hardware with all products in stock ready to ship. 

For the last four years they have been using Microvellum as their main software for design and manufacture. “In the four years we have been using Microvellum we have expanded its use into virtually all areas of our business,” says co-owner Peter Merrie. “It has the versatility and power that we require. You can literally go as far as you want with this programme in terms of setting up your own systems and library and we have continued to develop it to suit our particular needs and requirements, the only limits being the time you have to spend developing it.” We recently added to our usage and its usefulness with the purchase of Microvellum Micro Manager for producing costings. It is very simple and makes life a lot easier. Once we have completed the design we run it through Micro Manager and have instant costings for the job, including all labour. We have become pretty familiar with the software over the years but still find it very good having support in NZ. Occasionally we will have cause to do something new or have an issue that needs sorting. In these instances the online help is good and often sufficient but if we require more attention Microvellum’s NZ rep Tim Veale is quickly available either over the phone or if required in person.” Kitchen Works like the versatility that Microvellum offers in design and manufacture. 

timber bannister options Woodform welcomes the opportunity to work with staircase manufacturers or designers to achieve bespoke curved timber work - they offer laminated timber and Bendywood® options to suit interior and exterior environments and uses.


Bendywood® is solid wood that has been made flexible thanks to a unique chemical free thermo-mechanical production process. It can be worked like normal wood and bent by hand in a cold (without using heat) and dry (without steam or water) condition. The ability to bend by hand means that Bendywood® can be used in a variety of applications which require solid timber to be curved. The beauty of its application as a bannister rail is that it can be fitted on site without having to recreate a stairway template in the factory to fit and shape it before delivery to the site in sections for installation.


Remuera residence

The product is delivered to the site straight then simply bent into place and tied down with cable ties and clamps and left for 24 - 48 hours to ‘set’ before being permanently fixed in place. For exterior bannisters or bannister with different stylistic requirements Woodform are also able to provide solutions bringing their skill and experience in laminating and bending solid timber to achieve the result you are looking for.

Auckland City walkway

What this means says Woodform Managing Director Dave Pratt is that circular stairways with wooden bannisters have become more cost effective and a viable option to stainless steel or metal bannisters.

Quantum’s dynamic duo When Megabits (distributors of Vectorworks and Interiorcad) released Quantum, a full-service CNC solution designed specifically for the joinery market, they needed the right team to get the solution to the people who needed it most. In Bill Vincent and Brendan Balemi, they found the perfect combination of joinery industry experience, software knowledge and solutions-focussed business acumen. For the last six months, Bill and Brendan have worked with joinery businesses around NZ to determine whether Quantum is the right solution for their needs. Both have varied professional and trade backgrounds, resulting in a breadth of complementary experience their clients can benefit from. Bill’s background includes engineering, business studies, time with IBM and designing, building and running a tourist lodge. The time he spent running a company that designed and built bespoke saunas gave him his introduction to CAD software. For the last ten years he has been working with Vectorworks, and has gained a solid understanding of its unique benefits. This range of experience gives him a good overview of all aspects of running a business, and the ability to assess its software needs. Coupled with his knack for listening to what people need, he is well placed to help his joinery industry clients find the right software solution. With his extensive background in both the joinery industry and software, Brendan has a solid grasp on both. After asthma forced him to move away from working on the joinery factory floor he became a CNC programmer, before retraining as an architectural designer and taking up Vectorworks. Brendan’s experience in CNC programming enables him to help customers troubleshoot CNC issues and identify simple solutions. He works closely with Megabits’ IT partners, Acronym, to ensure Quantum software installations are seamless. Together, Bill and Brendan work with clients to look at their current joinery software, identify opportunities to improve using Quantum, and come up with a plan to help them migrate to the new system. Both are passionate about what Quantum can offer. “Quantum draws on all the strengths of Vectorworks and its ability to handle complex shapes, such as curves, takes it above and beyond other products on the market,” says Bill. “Allowing users to draw, present, transfer and create all through the package has huge advantages and the efficiencies it provides in time, labour and wastage of materials are significant.” Bill believes the reason Quantum has been so well received by the industry is the time that he and Brendan take to ensure it is the right solution for each client’s business. “We listen to what the client is saying, have a look at their whole business and see what their needs are. Only then do we put forward a solution,” says Bill.

extraction built to suit and to last Airtight Solutions Ltd promote and sell their dust extraction systems on suitability for the job in question, long term consistent performance and low or no maintenance, we look at a couple of recent client contacts with the company that illustrate this philosophy in action. Installing a dust extraction system that suits a particular manufacturing operation provides as many choices as there are clients. Type and number of machines being used, their frequency of use, product being manufactured, type of materials being cut and dust produced, the size of the shop and future development all need to be assessed when determining the size and scale of the extraction system required. Airtight Solutions understand the importance of all these factors and have a range of systems available and the expertise to advise on the combination that will suit any individuals needs and budget, from the less expensive ‘T’ Series suited to smaller shops with less machinery connected through to large multiple module extraction systems designed to run complex factory setups. David Sutherland who has recently taken up a Cutshop franchise on Aucklands North Shore is one of the former who has recently purchased a system from Airtight. The contract cutting business needed extraction for their cnc router and edgebander and after consultation hooked up an Airtight T750 with good results. “Airtight were good right from the start. They were quick to respond to our enquiry, advised on the size of the system we required and provided a very quick install. It is a powerful bag system that hasn’t missed a beat.”

Across town in Henderson Stuart Bowman from CAB has recently set up a small factory to manufacture for his ‘apartmento’ brand of furniture. The company run an SCM flat bed, edgebander, sander and panel saw. “We purchased the flat bed through Machines R Us and they helped us consider the extraction requirements and pointed us in the direction of Airtight. I have seen factory’s which treated extraction as an after event where you hook up whatever machines you have on the floor. I decide I wanted a really dust free environment this time around and realised setting up a new factory allowed me to do that,” say Stuart. “We selected the T1000 from Airtight and it is working out really well. It has been set up for exactly what we are doing currently but allows for easy expansion as required with out overloading the system. It has an awful lot of grunt, lots of suction - I don’t expect to have to do anything about dust extraction for a long time.” Not having had to do anything about extraction is something a couple of Airtight’s long term clients have enjoyed over several decades. Jenkins Timber and Timber Shade Blinds are two clients who have just completed their first filter bag replacements since purchasing Airtight systems some years ago.

“Jenkins Timber were one of our first large clients when they purchased off us back in 2003,” says Brett Borthwick from Airtight. “It shows the structure and quality of our bags that they can perform at the level Jenkins run their machines at for that period of time. Timber Shades is probably an even better example of the longevity of our bags. They have just replaced their bags after 9 years which is amazing considering the very fine nature of the cedar dust they are producing.” “Quality bag replacement can be relatively expensive says Brett that’s why the longevity being achieved by our bags gives real value as well as unsurpassed quality in the extraction process. “If you buy the right system and the right bags are very much a part of that, you will get a very long life out your extraction system with low maintenance. Giving long term clean air and all the benefits that brings to your company and the products you produce.” 

Häfele Eurocucina kiwi tour After all these factory tours it was time for some sight-seeing and downtime! The weekend consisted of a trip and tour through Neuschwanstein Castle in the South of Germany, the iconic castle for which the Disney Castle is modelled. Sunday was spent wandering the quaint streets and boutique shops of Lindau, a beautiful island town on the eastern side of Lake Constance.

The Eurocucina Kitchen

Fair is held every two years at the Rho Showgrounds just outside the northern Italian city of Milan. Nearly 300,000 visitors pass through the gates looking for the latest trends and inspiration from the top European designers looking to show that Europe is still the place of innovation and style. In order to bring the fair to New Zealand, Häfele invited 29 valued customers on a bus tour through Germany and Austria, culminating in the fair itself in Milan. This third edition of our tour was just as exciting as the last two in 2012 and 2014. The tour group consisted of seven from the South Island and 22 from the North Island, with a balanced mixture of business owners and designers. As with our two previous tours we began with a guided tour t h r o u g h K e s s e b ö h m e r, o u r exclusive wire-ware provider in New Zealand. Here our guests were taken through the processes that see Kesseböhmer produce over 30,000 pieces per day for the German and international markets. We were treated to seeing how products such as the revolutionary LeMans corner unit are pressed, moulded, welded, chromed and painted, before being boxed ready for despatch, just as the customer would receive it. Giving our esteemed customers this overview really shows the high level of processes that Kesseböhmer operate under. While staying in Bad Essen, where Kesseböhmer are located, our guests were also treated to a tour through Häcker Kitchens, o n e o f G e r m a n y ’s l a rg e s t kitchen manufacturers producing around 900 kitchens per day. The automation and attention to detail was on display as we walked through the full process of cutting, assembling, packing and despatching full kitchens to over 60 countries.

Kitchen inspiration at the Eurocucina fair.

By Monday it was time to head towards Milan in preparation for the Eurocucina Kitchen Fair. Travelling South through the stunning Swiss Alps, we arrived at our accommodation on the edge of Lake Como in time for a boat cruise around the lake. Basing ourselves here the group visited the opening day of the Eurocucina Fair to see the latest designs and trends from Europe. The common theme was that of natural colours, woodgrain and composite sinks throughout. Warm, earthy materials were widely used and seemed to be a lot more common than the whites and plain colours we are so used to. There were a lot of new product innovations on display and Häfele product throughout the stands.

The Hafele Eurocucina Team at the Blanco headquarters.

There followed the longest leg of the journey as we travelled around three-quarters of the length of Germany down to the South – West to Nagold, deep in the Black Forest and the home of the Häfele group. Once in Nagold the group were introduced to the world of Häfele and the history behind our great name since our foundation, in this small Black Forest village, in 1923. A trip around the main German distribution centre was also conducted which impressed everyone! With little time to take breath our guests were then taken through the Blanco showroom which is located North of the city of Stuttgart. As

usual we were very well looked after by our exclusive sink and tap supplier and presented some exciting new products. Then it was back on the bus and East across Germany and across the border in to Austria to the small town of Bregenz, perfectly located on the edge of Lake Constance. Having arrived late the tour had a relaxing start before enjoying the wonderful hospitality of Grass. We were treated to all aspects of the Grass drawer production as well as a presentation of some innovative and ground-breaking new product lines, soon to be seen in New Zealand from Häfele.

Our tour ended on the 14th, day 10, and we all went our separate ways, most to other European destinations to continue their adventure and begin their holidays! And so the third instalment of the much-revered Häfele Eurocucina Tour came to an end; some strong friendships and partnerships have been formed and on behalf of the Häfele staff, I would like to thank everyone on the trip for making it a wonderful and enjoyable experience for all. Here’s to 2018…

dr buzz Duncan Such

The winter solstice is nigh It seems the earth's rotation is accelerating. Every year seems to go by a little faster and this one is no different. It seems that only a week ago it was summer and now we are only weeks from the shortest day. It reminds me of a top gear episode where Clarkson is describing following an elderly Peugot driver through his beloved village and why, when you are a young child, every year is like half a lifetime so passes incredibly slowly. Whereas for an 80 year old, a year is only a fraction of their lifetime so passes in a blink. Consequently old people hang onto the steering wheel and inch along the road trying to avoid all the obstacles whizzing past at warp speed. That pretty much sums up how this year feels. In fact I am using that as an excuse for missing the last issue with Buzz and thanks for all those who expressed their anguish at missing the usually regular rambling passed off as a column. Everyone I have talked to seems to be busy and in good spirits as far as the industry is concerned. It is a long time since we have seen so many tower cranes in Auckland, Christchurch seems to be getting its mojo back despite the slowdown in dairy and construction activity in the provinces seems to be building. Since we last got together I have had the good fortune to visit Bangalore in India for the Indiawood exhibition. I say good fortune, not particularly because of the quality or quantity of business transacted at the show but because it is a great experience to go to a country which is so vastly different to what I am accustomed to. This was my third visit and as is often the way when travelling with business, I get to see the

industrial areas of many cities but often not the picture postcard items. I did stay in a rather grand colonial era hotel with vast lobby, extensive gardens bars and restaurants around the grand swimming pool though it would be fair to say that it is probably missing its original colonial masters and was somewhat tired. What did spark me up and make me think this is a place really worth exploring was the taxi trip back to the airport. It was an hour trip in chaotic traffic but Google maps indicated all was on track to be at the airport on time. However my driver explained in halting english that he was taking a short cut. Yeah right ... We followed through the most amazing little streets teeming with life. A side of India I had not seen before with everyone out in the street going about their life. Truly wonderful. The streets were so narrow that our car could barely fit through some gaps and yet we somehow managed to pass a large truck going the opposite direction. Agreed it took a lot of backwards and forwards to achieve this but everyone moved around to achieve the result In fact one of the striking things I noted in India was that despite the unbelievable number of people moving in every direction, I never physically bumped into anyone. Somehow they all manage to move about giving everyone a little space. Quite remarkable. Incidentally I did make it to the airport on time. So on that decidedly non woodworking not, I bid you adieu and see you in the next issue. Make hay while the sun shines. Buzz

painting exterior timber joinery - part 2 F

ollowing on from Part 1 (JOINERS Magazine March 2016) where we discussed the world of paint products in general we’ll now have a look at what’s involved to getting the job done. As in Part 1 we have tried not to be too technical and please accept that this article is by no means complete or pretending to be an industry standard. It’s a guide to help joiners get their heads around the subject. The paint finish is an integral and very important part of the durability of exterior timber joinery and should be given due consideration. Please refer to our earlier article “Durability of Exterior Timber Joinery” available from our website.

It all starts with a well-defined job specification or contract. This is an important document containing detailed information aiming to minimize controversy and disputes during the period of contract and will protect the interest of both the contractor and principal. It is also a document to refer to if any issues arise at a later date. Technical details to include in a Paint Specification plus some helpful suggestions. Areas and Items to be Painted It sounds obvious but make sure all relevant surface areas of the joinery are covered. This includes the undersides of sashes and other less visible surfaces which are sometimes “overlooked”. Process and Timing • Painting joinery is part of the building process and ideally that work starts as soon as possible after installation. Communication and planning is everything and to get the painters on the job at the right time requires coordination between other trades. • Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n , o n - s i t e storage, installation and painting of timber joinery is a very critical final phase in which all the good work in the joinery shop can be undone. It goes without saying that

damage needs to be kept to an absolute minimum but our biggest enemy is moisture. Damage occurs when a building site is busy with several tradesman going about their business. Try not to get joinery delivered when other significant work is being carried out. Most importantly make sure joinery is kept dry at all times. One or two coats of primer does not protect the timber from taking up moisture. It cannot be exposed to the weather. Please refer to our earlier article “The Myth about Primer”, available from our website. Pre-primed timber still interacts with moisture in the atmosphere. Ideally the moisture content of the timber at the time of painting should be near the equilibrium moisture content of the environment where the joinery is being used. For this to happen it’s good practice to have the joinery well protected on site for some time. The equilibrium moisture content for Radiata pine in New Zealand generally ranges from 12 to 14%.

Substrate Preparation • The purpose of preparing a substrate for painting is to ensure that it will accept and retain the paint with the minimum of interference from surface contaminants. • In most cases timber joinery leaves the joinery shop preprimed. • As mentioned in Part 1 the Primer coat is the foundation and most important layer in the Paint System. It is only as good as the quality of the preparation of the substrate, the surface it goes onto. • The type of primer needs to be selected carefully. It should be compatible with the timber it goes onto. It’s essential to determine whether the timber to be painted has been treated. This is particularly important when the timber has

JOINERS Magazine June 2016 page 72

been treated with LOSP (Light Organic Solvent Preservative) formulations. The preservative is carried into the timber by “white spirit” and this needs to be removed afterwards. The timber surface then needs conditioning prior to painting. There are generally no issues with CCA, ACQ or our H3.2 Tanalised®Ecowood™ treated timber. These treatments are waterborne and the timber is treated and re-dried before processing. The chemicals are firmly fixed to the fibre and excess chemical is machined off. ThermoWood ®230 is thermally modified Radiata pine, which is an ideal substrate for paint. All resin, which normally conflicts with paint, has been removed by burning off. The timber has also opened up and offers excellent penetration. ThermoWood®230 is gaining in popularity over Western Red Cedar, because it is as stable, as durable and just does not have the issues with paint as Western Red Cedar does. Any surface to be painted needs to be dry, clean, and free of oil, grease, dust and dirt. For all joinery applications the surface also needs to be sanded which increases the surface area, removes

contamination and opens up the grain for better penetration. Paint System • Ensure you provide a full description of the paint products to be used, from primer and/or sealers to undercoats and finishing coats. Please refer to Part 1 (“Painting Exterior Timber Joinery Part1), available from our website. • The choice of colour for exterior timber joinery is another important factor to consider in dealing with our harsh New Zealand sunlight. Please refer to our earlier article “The Issue of Dark Colours on Timber Joinery”, available on our website. The LRV (Light Reflectance Value) of a colour is an indicator of what the temperature of the paint surface and substrate should reach in direct sunlight. Black, the most absorbing of visible light and the thermal infrared, has a LRV very close to 0. White is the most reflective of visible light. It also reflects a lot of the invisible thermal infrared, and has a LRV of approximately 100. Therefore dark colours get very hot; lighter colours less so. Under normal ambient conditions of 20°C, colours in the mid-range of LRV

Tu n n i c l i f f e T i m b e r C o m p a n y L i m i t e d

50 can absorb enough light and thermal IR to rise to around 40/50°C, which is too warm for many substrates including wood. As clouds pass over, temperatures on the surface can change rapidly. This rapid change in temperature does cause the paint film and the substrate to suffer stresses; these can be reduced by a more reflective c o l o u r. T h e r e a r e n e w pigment technologies around for paint colours that are more reflective of the visible and less absorbing of the invisible thermal infrared. Be careful when using these colours. While they can give a reduction in heat absorption they do still absorb heat. As a general guide, use colours with an LRV >50 on timber for exterior direct exposure to the sun but keep in mind that realistically exterior timber joinery should only be painted white. Application • The effectiveness of an exterior paint system depends on building up a film of adequate thickness. Saving on paint by overspreading compromises the quality of the job and is false economy. • At all times adhere t o t h e m a n u f a c t u r e r ’s recommendations with regard to thinning, minimum and maximum spreading rates, weather conditions and temperature at times of application, drying and the time interval between coats. • One design detail of exterior timber joinery which will better ensure a long term quality paint job is rounded corners and edges. These allow the desired dry film build up in these areas, whereas sharp edges and corners don’t. • The most common application technique for exterior timber finishing is by brush. Although more labour intensive, brushing or roller is specifically recommended for the primer and undercoat as it gives better wetting of

the surface and penetration into grain, joints and corners. Airless spray may be used for subsequent coats but is more suited to large areas which are normally not applicable to timber joinery and therefore hardly used. Last but not least in this category is workmanship, making sure you are dealing with qualified trades people. A dry film test will tell you immediately if the painter has applied the specified number of coats at the required dry film build. If you have correctly specified the number of coats and the required coverage rate for each coat, the painter must meet that specification.

Maintenance • Like any product, all building substrates require maintenance. Not everyone expects this, but it is particularly important in the first few years of the building’s life. Both concrete and wood are subject to movement as the building settles down. Catching coating defects early such as cracks in the substrate is a priority and needs to be fixed to prevent any further potentially costly issues.

Stone insights

Granite Surface Finishes


hile polished finishes are still the most widely used, there has been an increasing demand for alternatives. Honed and textured finishes have been in hot demand lately as global trends encourage the market to experiment with different colours and surface textures. These enticing finishes can be achieved on natural stone, whether granite or marble. Although the surface of natural granite has been enhanced with a different finish, it still retains the same durability over alternative bench top surfaces. So what are the different finishes available?


DUST SOLUTION Largest range of Modular duct in New Zealand. Specialist CNC and Poly Anti-static flex R<10 8

A Polished Finish The granite slab is machined with a series of polishing wheels with coarse pads that grind and buff the surface of the stone. After cutting a surface resin is generally added to fill any visible or tiny imperfections. Then the slabs are polished using progressively finer pads until the desired level of polish is achieved. The finished product is smooth and highly reflective, and shows depth and colour. A Honed Finish A Honed finish is smooth with little reflection, which varies between a matt finish and a low sheen. This is achieved by stopping the polishing before the buffing stage. Alternatively a polished finish can be remachined to a honed finish. This finish subdues the colour as well as the shine, providing a sophisticated, natural finish that some clients prefer to a high polish. A Textured Finish Textured finishes come in many forms and names which can have minor differences between slab processors but are generally interchangeable; whether Leathered, Satin, Suede or Flamed and Brushed, a textured finish is generally achieved using diamond abrasive brushes during the finishing process. This removes the softer mineralisation and the remaining stone is then smoothed to a smooth low sheen. The exact finish will vary between different granites depending on the hardness and movement in the stone. It offers a textural, tactile element to any project which is gaining in popularity with designers wanting a more interesting non-reflective surface, while emphasising the beauty and timelessness of natural stone. Technically both Textured and Honed finishes increase the level of porosity fractionally. However the impact as far as day to day use goes should be negligible. The exception is honed black granite which visually can be a little unforgiving, requiring more regular cleaning. The impact of this can be mitigated by using a specific stone cleaner suited to honed stone. The Polished finish is the most common stone finish imported. Some stone suppliers have the ability to change the surface to a Honed or Textured finish if desired, check with your local supplier. 

North Shore Joiners enjoy a cleaner & safer workplace Artiture, premium commercial joiners in North Shore, have recently installed an Egmont dust extraction system. Having experienced problems with too much dust in the workshop and frustration with emptying small mobile bag extractors, Mr Michael Law from Artiture decided it was time to upgrade the system. Artiture’s expertise in commercial joinery involves many highprofile projects for offices, airlines, airports, civic spaces and gymnasiums and their range of CNC machinery requires powerful suction which is critical to ensure clean machining and high quality products. The challenge was finding external space for a centralised extraction unit, so Egmont Air made a custom height unit that could fit inside, within the factory space.

The new Egmont Air system used a centralised modular ducting and high-efficiency fan to connect to each machine and this allowed the mobile bag extractors to be removed. Mr Michael comments how the new system “not only has a lot more suction, but now the work environment and floors are a lot cleaner. We have more space and less dust in the factory, the quick-clamp bin aids emptying and makes discharge much easier” The Egmont Air system is also fitted with a unique eco powersaving device. This system uses a pressure stabilizer to monitor the live suction and increase or decrease as various machines are turned on and off. “A small decrease in airflow provides a massive saving in power” comments Mr Richard Stewart from Egmont Air. This is a huge benefit to our customers who have an extraction system running continually all day, every day.

A large range of products and solutions are available for the oneman joinery shops to large timber processors and sawmills anywhere in New Zealand. Egmont Air dust extraction systems are a favourite solution due to their modular design and heavy-duty construction. The Egmont systems focus on providing value for high suction performance with energy savings. A free on-site evaluation service of your particular application is available to precisely determine your dust extraction needs. A preliminary scope is defined, documenting layout of machinery, known and problematic areas, issues, and future plans. The on-

site evaluation covers 11 critical points including airflow and pressure testing where relevant. Egmont Air provide the complete on-site service from ‘technical advice’ to ‘design & installation’ of turn-key projects.

Egmont Air Systems are not only limited to wood-dust, being experienced in all types of dust or fume including smoke, fumes, paint spray, metallic dust and more, many solutions are available off-the-shelf, for a FREE on-site evaluation for your requirements contact them today on 0800 781 200 or visit the website

How to identify the client from hell


s a general rule, 10% of people are inherently honest, 10% are inherently dishonest, and the other 80% are as honest as the circumstances require. That rule applies to people in all walks of life, and all occupations. So just as it applies to joiners, so it also applies to building owners. And it is just a matter of luck whether you happen to come across a client who falls into that 10% dishonest bracket. Of course, there are plenty of other potential clients who aren’t inherently dishonest, but they have very poor judgment, social skills, or management skills. We have all come across them - they may be excessively frugal, over-confident, argumentative or assertive, oneeyed and self-righteous, quick to see red, unnecessarily suspicious of other people’s motives, overly prone to stress, neurotic, or psychopathic. Typically their life has been a history of failed relationships and projects that have turned to custard. The only problem is, that history isn’t on public display. There is no register of badlyadjusted individuals like there is, for example, for licensed builders. There is no Registrar who faithfully documents their failings, no Board to discipline them and prevent them from causing misery to unsuspecting suppliers. These people are like disguised minefields, waiting for you to stumble into. And in the context of building disputes, most of the work we do is rescuing our clients from such a minefield. That might not be so bad, but for the fact that most building work is done on credit. Which means that you are at their mercy, because if they take a dislike to you or decide to steal your services from

you, they can simply wait until you have finished the project, and then fail to pay your final invoice. Your final invoice might be equivalent to the whole of your profit on that project, which means you have to find some other way to feed your family. Or worse, if they decide to extract vengeance by defaming you in the media, complaining about you to various Government agencies (IRD, Human Rights Commission, Privacy Commission, Commerce Commission), the Building Practitioners Board (if you are licensed) or your trade association, or counterclaiming against you for alleged defective workmanship, overcharging or delays. Wouldn’t it be nice to avoid that sort of heartache at the outset, and let the client end up with the joiner he or she deserves? Well, although it might take thumb screws, mindreading powers, a crystal ball or a time machine to achieve that every time, fortunately there are some enquiries you can make that will help flush out this kind of person. The trick is to know where to go to find all the information that is publicly available about someone. Here are some of the sources you can use. Search engines like Google are your first port of call, because they scour the internet for any mention of the individual or company concerned. If the potential client has courted controversy in the past, and either they or their victim went public about it, chances are the search engines will pick up some reference to it. Sometimes if they are in a particular industry or have a particular hobby, they may get a write-up in a blog, although you have to be careful the blog writer isn’t just as fanatical as they are.

Online newspapers like the New Zealand Herald, Stuff or National Business Review also have search functions which may pick up past articles that get buried in a Google search. Then there are specialist publications like the Government Gazette that carry public notices about impending bankruptcies, liquidations, etc. Social media is another great source, because people sometimes reveal their true nature on self-promotion sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. If you really want to dig deep, you can call in the specialists such as credit reporting agencies, debt collectors, and private investigators. You should also, as a matter of course, ask for references from your potential client, just as you would if you were considering hiring a new employee. And if you happen to know that the person in question has an ex-domestic partner, an exbusiness partner, or ex-employees, they would be well worth talking to, although you should expect them to be a little biased. There are a number of Government registers that exist specifically to inform the public. The Companies Office, for example, lists every company that someone either is, or was, a shareholder or director of. If they have left a trail of failed or struck-off companies, then that is a warning sign. Similarly, if you are contracting with a company and the individual you are dealing with doesn’t show up as a director or shareholder of that company, that may be because they are, or previously were, bankrupt.

A search of the Personal Property Securities Register will tell you whether the person is loaded up with debt. And a search of the Land Information records will tell you not only who are the actual owners of the subject property (and whether it is held on trust) but also what other properties the person owns or previously owned. Then you can go to the Council property file for any of those properties to see whether your potential client had any building work done, and if so, who did it. Speaking to those contractors is probably the best investment you can make for your future protection. Council files are also useful because they often contain communications written by your prospective customer. If the tone of those communications is extremely emotive or belligerent, then that is a major warning sign. Finally, it pays to check whether the person concerned has been involved in litigation in the past. There are databases like Briefcase and LINX that summarise all the major court decisions, and you can search for the name of a particular individual or company. The lower courts and tribunals sometimes provide this facility as well. Some of these enquiries you can make on your own, others you would need someone like us to do for you. Either way, it seems like a small price to pay and a prudent step to take to avoid stumbling into a minefield. 

To confirm or deny that, you can go to the Insolvency Service website, which contains details of all past or present bankruptcies.

STATE OF THE INDUSTRY Reports from Branch Presidents May 2016

AUCKLAND/NORTHLAND Our northern region is extremely busy. Desks are full of quotes to be completed, factory’s are full of joinery to be manufactured, builders are frantically busy in both the residential and commercial sectors. Architects are reporting to be very busy, which gives us great confidence that the workloads that we are seeing now are going to continue. This in turn should give us all the confidence to staff up to help carry the workloads that we are all experiencing. This is where the trouble starts. Through the nasty recession that we all experienced, a lot of joiners, builders, painters, plumbers and in fact all the related trades to the building industry, stopped or at least slowed down in training apprentices. A lot of our tradesmen were also pushed into finding other forms of employment, whether that was relocating overseas or having a complete career change. This has definitely had a huge effect on the availability of qualified tradespeople for the whole of the building industry. BCITO are doing a great job in looking after and helping to train new apprentices and helping these guys work their way through their block courses, but we as the industry leaders / business owners / employers actually need to be taking every chance that we can to take on another apprentice, In Deb Pauls words ‘An apprentice is the cheapest tool you will ever buy’. At a recent Auckland / Northland regional meeting the question was asked as to how many of the attendees actually had a current apprentice or apprentices. I was quite alarmed at how few members put their hands up to say that they are currently training. Auckland is getting bigger and bigger every day with new sub divisions opening up everywhere, particular in the areas like Silverdale North Auckland, and the Franklin areas in South Auckland. This is putting huge pressure on our motorway systems and makes it really hard to carry out business in the Auckland area. A lot of the housing is still the group type housing that is still mainly in the aluminium market place and very much price driven over quality. The renovation market is also very strong at present which is where the Timber Joiners are being kept very busy. NZS:4211 gives all Timber Joiners a reason with concrete evidence as to why Homeowners / Builders / Architects should be using and replacing their joinery with timber over aluminium. There is also a reasonable amount of high end architecturally designed homes being built where architects are using and specifying

NZS:4211 Compliant Timber Joinery. Again at a very recent Auckland / Northland regional meeting, I was quite surprised as to how few of our members are tagging their joinery as NZS:4211 compliant, yet they are all claiming to be manufacturing as per the manual and are prepared to supply a PS3 to state that their joinery is manufactured to NZS:4211 standards. I get the feeling that maybe some of our members are missing the point by not purchasing tags. One of our local members has in fact been pulled up recently by our local council requesting proof of NZS:4211 compliancy. They again stated that the joinery had been built to spec, then purchased the tags and fitted the tags to the joinery. I think that this should be a warning to all of us that the local councils are starting to look for the tags and are prepared to enforce the fact that NZS:4211 is part of the building code and is a requirement whether it is on the architects plans or not. – Dave Cunningham CANTERBURY Pretty much half way through the year already and conference time here again - can’t believe how fast it’s gone. The Canterbury region is seeing a change in residential building with the likes of the spec work and bulk housing tapering off and more of the Hill work and high end work coming through now, I’m picking the housing companies will start slowing up a bit now and we need to keep a careful eye on that, making sure they are paying, as it could be a time where some of them may struggle with the drop of work. The commercial side of things is still gathering momentum but still a long way to go until that’s at full steam; there are still buildings in town to come down so things there are definitely slow to pick up. Starting to find more people out and about looking to find a job or a change in scenery so that’s promising for those looking for staff as it’s been very difficult over the last five or so years. In saying this, it is still really hard to find good skilled joiners, and just remember it still pays to do those reference checks. Health and Safety is a big part of everyone’s business, more now than ever, and will grow to be even bigger over the upcoming years, with the new act and workplace safety being active in ensuring people are adhering to the laws. You must keep up to date and be doing what’s needed, otherwise there is a high chance you will pay a price. Finally I have a tip for this coming season; if you run CNC gear it may pay to set some mouse traps in and around them to stop the little critters

getting in and chewing through your wiring. It can be an expensive and time consuming exercise if you don’t. Believe me. Other than that I hope we all enjoy the conference and have a little fun. - Nathan Moore CENTRAL Here in the Central area, the strong start to the year has continued on and with nearly half the year gone now most of our members have not seen any let up in their workloads. The lift has been across most sectors except farming. New builds, spec homes, renovations, commercial work, health boards, schools and the ever increasing DIY market have filled our books to pre recession levels and looking to continue for a good while yet. One would think that with everyone so busy that the price cutting to win jobs should have lessened and that maybe better margins may creep in, especially as the shortfall of qualified people in our industry becomes more apparent. And to think that there would be even more work available if the councils could get through their building consents faster. There is a huge delay in obtaining these at present. Recently we held our annual Golf Day at the Feilding Golf Club and this years honours went to the Carters Wanganui team. It was an enjoyable day with plenty of golf and plenty of beers. We recently held our AGM at which John Dunweg became our new president. John has been in our industry for many years and I wish him all the best with this. Lastly, as I finish my term as Central President, I would like to say I have thoroughly enjoyed the role and have learnt a lot about the industry at national level. There are quite a few people who give a lot of their time freely and willingly to the industry, and are doing a fantastic job and I’m sure they will keep us in good stead for the future. Graeme Andrews HAWKE’S BAY /POVERTY BAY The days may be getting shorter but the unusually balmy weather continues to greet us in Hawke’s Bay. Our branch membership comprises of 25 local Master Joiners, 2 local associates, and 33 national associate members. 2016 has started positively for most in the region, with good workloads had by most. I believe our region is in for a busy few years with the pressure on the housing market due to a steady stream of New Zealanders moving to Hawke’s Bay for the lifestyle and housing affordability. National and local suppliers are announcing price increases on panel board and timber stocks. These items are struggling

to keep up with supply. We had a good turnout for our last meeting which was held at the local 9-hole golf course. A game of bowls to finish with provided plenty of banter between all. NZS:4211 struggles to get recognition within the Hawke’s Bay region, which is very frustrating as local authorities and architects have not seen the benefits available under these standards. I would like to wish those who have entered the NZ Master Joiner Awards all the best in Queenstown. Queenstown will be my last attendance as president of this association and I would like to thank all members and local associates for assisting me over the last three years. I have learnt a huge amount of what goes on behind the scenes to keep our industry striving to maintain its market awareness. - Ross Morgan. NELSON/MARLBOROUGH Congratulations to all those who entered the national awards. All those who entered are winners, as they are celebrating what is good about our industry and are proud of the trade they have chosen. The Nelson branch have taken the awards to another level by developing our own regional awards. The involvement of the members’ 43 boards of 103 entries was astonishing. The support for the event is also worth noting where 120 attended the event leaving not a spare seat in the house. The event also celebrated the first Life Member of the branch, Colin Roberts of Ruby Bay joinery, for his contribution to the industry. This was preceded by the award to the region’s best apprentice Howie Weeden, who received the Centre for a Fine woodworking magnificent trophy. Training remains the focus with great success through the current BCITO programme which has certainly increased enthusiasm for members to employ and continue to employ apprentices. We have established within the region our own Training Advisory group. These four members whose businesses cross over all aspects of industry are charged with owning and reporting on training and training developments. The group are available to the learning organisations for advice with curricula and content. With the new Health and Safety legislation coming in to force in early April, we immediately held a H and S presentation at the April branch meeting, presented superbly by Julian Clarke from our associate member Crowe Horwath Chartered Accountants. It was simple but professional - great for members who attended. - Myles Sellers

OTAGO/SOUTHLAND We had our AGM and mid-year dinner at the Lone Star and it was good to catch up with the members and suppliers on a social level. We have had our first meeting held in Gore, with members from Invercargill and Dunedin coming together in the middle for a good meeting and dinner to follow. Workloads have been busy for most of the members during 2016 and there is a bright outlook for the coming year. There are a number of large projects planned for this year in Central Otago, Dunedin and Southland and a lot of work been priced. Members are looking forward to the conference in Queenstown and the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations, and the chance to catch up with other out of town members. Some members have already booked flights to Melbourne to attend AWISA in July to check out all the new toys. I wish Chris Dickson from Leith Joinery all the best as the incoming President. Andrew Duncan TARANAKI Kia ora from the Naki. This year is disappearing fast, especially now that winter sports are here and the weather is cooling. So before too long it will be October and warming up again. Bring it on. Workloads in Taranaki are varied as New Plymouth seems to be ticking over pretty well as far as the residential builds go. Most are happy with the workloads they have and have described it as steady. Enquiries are steady in the city as well, however some have noticed a slight decrease. Margins are slim as potential customers are shopping around considerably. There seems to be a little of commercial floating around but nothing of huge significance. South Taranaki is happy with what is happening with their workloads, with enquires being steady and this is translating through with jobs. The milk payout has had an effect here but a lot of factory workers in the industry still get paid the same amount, so they still spend in the towns. Hopefully this keeps going coming into winter as the sheep and beef farmers have had a reasonable year all up. Central Taranaki joiners are perhaps feeling things a little tight at present as the dairy industry and oil industry are the two industries that make this area tick over. We are probably the only ones hoping the price of oil and milk rises dramatically. Work is just coming in enough to keep us off the streets, with a bit of work still coming from New Plymouth. We are all grateful for the work we have, as enquires are slightly less than steady, but there is still some great work out there. It’s not the dairy farmers keeping us all busy but town work and sheep and beef farmers. It certainly could be worse.

It sounds like the MJ Conference will be a good one with a few businesses heading down that have not attended before. This is hopefully a trend that continues as the more that go, the more it can grow. - Brent Russ WAIKATO/BOP The market in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty region remains very positive. There is good demand for our products and services and lead times are stretched out, some members reporting they will not have to be concerned about filling the order book for the rest of the year. There is apparently a high level of interest in new plant and also software with suppliers under pressure dealing with enquiries which is evidence of companies looking to increase capacity. JMF NZS:4211 Compliant Timber Joinery appears to be gaining traction. There is more awareness from manufacturing members as well as architects, as compliant joinery is being noted and specified on more plans. Timber profiles are readily available, along with compliant hardware and glazing system, as well as software which simplifies the engineering side of things. My experience is that the end product is very well received by clients, builders, and council building inspectors. Our suppliers continue to enjoy an increase in sales. With industry continuing to be busy it does require planning for longer supply times on many items. Costs of many products are also on the increase, hopefully members are able to pass these on to the market rather than absorb them as we have too often had to in the past.

Staff - A definite shortage of qualified Joiners in our region with most looking for a least one extra person. A few apprentices have been taken on to fill the gaps. Materials - Generally materials are slightly slower coming in than we are used to, but that is to be expected given every one is busy. Anything out of the North Island is slower. Finances - Everyone is paying on time just the odd slow payer amongst them. General - Everyone is struggling with their workloads and keeping people happy. General concensus is that we are all looking forward to Conference. – Craig Mason WELLINGTON As a Master Joiner working in the Wellington Region over the past decade, it was with much pride that I accepted the regional presidency in April this year, taking over from Mr Anthony Neustroski. I would like to thank Anthony both for his leadership during his term as President, and for his support and mentorship as I take on this new challenge. During my term I look forward to upholding the standards of our association among our membership, and strengthening our numbers. The start to 2016 has been strong and positive in the Wellington

region. The majority of local members are reporting being busy, with good forward work in the coming months. Challenges shared by our local members include sourcing quality staff, creating increased demand for apprentices. The problem is further amplified by a lack of availability of courses locally, and secondary schools not tending to promote joinery as a trade, meaning it is likely to be a continued challenge. Our May 2016 meeting welcomed two potential new members, and much of the discussion focussed on legislative change with the new Health and Safety at Work Act. More members are being visited by WorkSafe NZ, who our members report are tending to focus on dust removal methods and factory cleanliness. Despite being extremely busy with my business and new role as President, I am looking forward to taking time out to attend the Master Joiners Conference in Queenstown, and the AWISA trade show in July this year. – Jeremy Patmore 

Waikato/BOP MJ held our combined AGM and Apprentice Awards Dinner recently. It was an enjoyable night, an excellent dinner prepared by the students at WINTEC’s Windows restaurant and an inspiring guest speaker – Tawera Nikau. Awards were presented to the best apprentices from each of the Modules completed in 2015. Congratulations to the recipients, and all the best for your futures within the joinery industry. Only a couple of days to go, as I write this, before heading to Conference in Queenstown. I’m looking forward to seeing this part of the country for the first time, catching up with fellow Master Joiners and enjoying what looks like a great conference programme. - Paul Ingram WAITAKI. Workload - Everybody is extremely busy with some booked up untill next year already. Everyone wants everything NOW putting a lot of pressure on and some unrealistic time frames.

Brio’s versatile Open Rail Series The Brio Open Rail Series was launched in 2015, meeting the growing demand for architecturally inspired, open rail sliding door systems. This year, Brio extend that range further with a new face fixed door hanger for timber doors, and introduce a new stylish black finish. Open Round Rail – Timber Face Fix 100 Increasing the versatility of the Brio Open Round Rail systems, the new Timber Face Fix is suitable for timber panels up to 100kg in weight, and 40mm thick. The face-fixed straps bring an industrial aesthetic to modern interiors, highlighting the contrast between metal and timber. The stainless steel rollers utilise a sealed precision bearing with inlaid tyre, and run on a stainless steel rail. Supported by clamping brackets at each end, the rail centralises the panel and conceals the support brackets for clean lines and seamless finish. Brio have developed a new Soft Stop accessory for the Open Round Rail Series. The soft stop performs as a damper which absorbs the momentum of the door to produce a softer operation when opening or closing the panel and is available in both left and right hand units.

Great designs begin with black Many modern interiors use black to simplify or highlight design detail. Enhancing contemporary spaces, Brio’s Open Rail systems are now available in a stylish PVD Black finish. PVD Black offers a contemporary aesthetic without introducing the risk of finish deterioration. PVD finishes are more durable than standard powder coating, and will retain the depth of colour across the product’s lifespan. All Brio Open Rail Series sliding door systems and accessories are available in classic satin stainless steel or PVD Black finishes. For more, visit

H& &S with Kathy Compliance

Last issue I outlined the Jacks project to achieve ACC accreditation and the general glow of achievement that such accreditation would cast on us. But catastrophe! - well into the year-long project one of our large showroom lights unexpectedly burst into flame. Showroom fires are not a good way to achieve ACC accreditation for ‘Workplace Safety Management Practices’. But our fire was an excellent example of the type of ‘accident’ that can have such considerable consequences for any organisation. It also gave us an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice for a number of our revised procedures, as well as proving we needed to develop some new ones. Such as how to extinguish a fire that’s about 10 metres above your head. (We managed. But we might have contravened a few other H&S procedures in the process!) The showroom fire proved our fire extinguisher set up had been recently inspected, and our and evacuation procedure worked just as it had done so in our regular drills. Such inspections and drills are usually quick and simple, but doing them regularly is the key to picking up problems. As with most of the areas of our WSMP project we found once the initial work of setting up a procedure has been done, maintenance is reasonably simple – as long as it’s someone’s responsibility. There’s no shortage of signage, guards, barriers and other safety gear available to improve safety, so often the only stumbling block to making something safe is ensuring someone takes the time to do it. So far in our project we’d improved our documentation, and had a real event to apply some of our emergency procedures (something our Christchurch branch colleagues remind us they’ve had to deal with multiple times over the past five years!)

But perhaps the most challenging thing to come out of this WSMP accreditation process was our need to improve and maintain staff awareness around the importance of safety, and, crucially, the part they have to play in it. We all thought we were being safe, but it didn’t take long for examples of lazy – and potentially dangerous – behaviour to become obvious. And while an email might have been sent, or a reprimand issued for repeat offenders, ACC requires a continuous process to identify and improve workplace safety. Under the new legislation this responsibility for personal and the Company’s workplace safety is shared – and can’t be delegated. It’s very easy to discuss the theory of this with staff – making it clear that no one can walk past a wet and slippery floor, or leave a machine switched on and unattended. At staff briefings there’s much nodding of heads and stroking of chins – of course we’ll all be safe! Why wouldn’t we be? But a day later there’s a puddle in the hallway where someone’s slopped their tea and hasn’t cleaned it up. Or a machine left switched on with a guard removed. A week later there’s all sorts of trip hazards in the showroom. No one owns up. And do we really want to go on a witch hunt to find the culprit? The theory of safety can be very different to the practical application of it. So what we’re continuing to work through now – even having achieved ACC’s Tertiary standard accreditation – is how to make workplace safety real, and to make sure everyone feels responsible. At times it’s a struggle. We don’t want staff to feel aggrieved because they have to spend extra time cleaning up after them, but instead we want them to do it without thinking about it – just as a matter of course. When consideration of safety becomes part of your day to day work – and this is the intention of the ACC process – then everyone benefits.

N o t e v e r y o n e ’s a c o n v e r t . When it comes to eliminating or minimising hazards there’s always someone who forgets. Or doesn’t notice. Or has had a bad day and can’t be bothered. But they’re learning. Not just because our H&S team drums it into them, but also because they know they have to. We all read the WorkSafe prosecutions, and we’re all aware that anyone who’s involved, even indirectly, in a workplace accident can find themselves facing consequences. Forgetfulness, ignorance or lack of interest doesn’t hold up well in court.

So we were audited by ACC and we passed with flying colours. It required time and effort to get there, and we were fortunate to have a very capable project leader. But if we’re honest, then it wasn’t that difficult. Jacks is now recognised as having achieved a certain standard of good practice that not only reflects well on the business, but has lowered our ACC premiums too. What’s more, the process we went through was pretty much what every business needs to undertake to minimise their liability under the new legislation, so we sort of had to go through a similar process anyway.

NZ Agent for Holzher Machines New machine sales, Spare parts, Service.

Thankfully our showroom didn’t burn down. And we’ve improved the workplace safety at Jacks without doubt. If we have a bad accident we’ll be answering to WorkSafe just like any other company. But at least we’ll be starting from a more compliant starting point than we would have two years ago. We’ll also have the documentation to demonstrate that we continue to make a very serious effort to be safe. In the meantime we continue to work towards no accidents whatsoever, and document our efforts to do so. And we’ve replaced the showroom lights …
