Anthony Neustroski asks why does the Master Joiners exist? And answers - to benefit all of its members.

The 2018 Master Joiners Award winners were announced at the associations conference earlier this month. The Supreme Award went to Firman Joinery in Oamaru for a rich timber toned kitchen with delicate colour palette and curved forms.

People in places From the President

Do the best for members


y first year as National President is complete and what a year it has been, there have certainly been some high points and some very low points. With the passing of Ken Monk the Master Joiners and JMFNZ esteemed right hand man the Master Joiners immediately lost some forward motion and so many tasks that were usually performed by Ken needed reorganising.

Hettich NZ & AUS tour group visit the Hettich plant in Germany.

So it could be when Corinne Moore our esteemed Federation Secretary retires early next year, the backbone of our organisation for so many years, who pulled us into, and has kept us in good shape. No doubt we owe Ken and Corrine a great deal of gratitude. Armed with the news that our 50% JMFNZ partners are definitely here to stay and are in for the long haul, we can relax a bit on this issue and realise that we are a 50% owner of what will be more than likely a stand alone and profitable business enterprise. It is time to put our ideas and efforts into other areas of the Joinery and Cabinetmaking industry and indeed into the direction of the Master Joiners itself. We have been coasting along for years and years gathering new members and it is obvious that we have out grown what we once were.

We are who entities like BRANZ, ACC, Worksafe and MBIE approach for guidance on industry practices or news for or from our industry. With this comes new information and more knowledge to members but also more work that needs to be done. With the busy lifestyles we all lead these days we are finding members are less likely to put their hand up to offer their services or time. So we must change the way we are and that change will cost, I think members will benefit more than ever before from a team who is paid to manage, promote and enhance us as an organisation. This is the direction we need to be headed. A question, why do the Master Joiners exist? My answer is simple - to promote, support, and do the best we can, at all times, for all of its members, this will always be our purpose. If you are a member of the Master Joiners you are helping support the whole industry, where would the industry be without us? It is important to the industry that we exist as I have mentioned above, another example is the effort we continually put in with regard to industry training, our industry cannot solely rely on anyone else to promote Joinery as a vocation, because no one else cares. It is not just a sticker on your door, it tells all that you are a committed member to the industry and are different from the other factories down the road. Consumer confidence is not easily won and competition is always about us, but you have a point of difference, embrace it. Have confidence that you are part of an organisation that is reorganising for its push forward, I am confident this will produce more benefits for its members and as usual the whole industry.

Waikato/BOP shine again The Annual Waikato/BOP Master Joiner Apprentice Awards were held on May 10 at the Wintec campus in Hamilton. The guest speaker was Robert Webster, formerly of Prime Panels. The function featured a really great three course meal served by Windows on Avalon, the restaurant facility run by trainee chefs at Wintec. Bruce Delaney, Senior Tutor for the School of Trades at Wintec commented it was apparent again this year of the high calibre of Waikato/BOP apprentices compared to other apprentices who came from all over the North Island. These Waikato/BOP apprentices are often at the top of their class groups. The standard of the winning apprentices was a good sign for the joinery industry in years to come. 

awards a winner again


ongratulations must go to Hamish Kane and his team at Firman Joinery out of Oamaru for their outstanding success at this year’s Master Joiners Awards announced recently at the Master Joiners Conference held in Auckland. Their fabulous kitchen entry picked up three Awards: the Supreme Award, Best Kitchen and Best Use of Creative Lighting for good measure. We have exclusive coverage of all the winners in this issue including the 2018 Apprentice Awards that once again showed just how good the up and comers in the joinery industry can be. This issue has some really interesting reading and viewing in it. With the international trade Exhibition AWISA 2018 coming up in early July we have a preview of what can be seen there from some of the leading exhibitors as well as a look at the latest in edgebanding technology, a big part of the AWISA Exhibition in its own right. The Exhibition is back in Sydney for the first time in six years following the Darling Harbour rebuild that included a brand new multi level Exhibition Centre. With Industry 4.0 in full swing, all the latest from around the world will be on display and it is just across the ditch. We also have a sampling of the latest in handles in the kitchen and a look at the latest in decorative board, a product range that is on the up and up in recent times with new product and new colour ranges from both new and leading existing suppliers. Amongst our regular features these days is the latest report from the Master Joiners (State of the Industry). This gives you an insight into how things are going in this trade sector. Given it is really recent it makes for interesting reading. You will also find details of the latest listings for the Master Joiners (as usual) and our once a year listing of current National Kitchen & Bathroom (NKBA) members. As we head into another winter things are still very busy throughout the country. If the Master Joiner Award winners (and all the entries) are anything to judge by, the quality and workmanship going on out there demands real respect. We will have more on AWISA 2018 and the Award winners in our September issue. Enjoy Bob Nordgren

... noticed at EuroCucina dark wood grain and textures Every second year over 400,000 kitchen designers, retailers and suppliers converge on Milan to attend EuroCucina the international showcase of kitchen, furniture and appliance design. Attended by designers from 188 different countries it’s the ultimate lolly shop for those with a sweet tooth for design. This was the 5th show I’ve attended and the main difference from my first show is the blatant IP theft that takes place. Back in the day a sneaky camera shot was all you could get, now it’s a freefor-all with very little policing. I guess social media has killed any chance of protecting your ideas from the masses. Interestingly enough this maybe is the reason why there were such common design threads across the 100’s of different kitchen companies that were presenting. The thing that struck me the most was what was missing ... white or near white kitchens. There were very few, I would guess less than 5%. Currently in New Zealand

they would still represent more than 50% of sales. There were a lot of dark wood grains and solid blacks and greys. Two tone is old school they were bringing in three to four different blends of colours and textures. There was very little gloss except in metal (chrome and stainless) and glass. Textured, matt, moody, natural, finishes were everywhere. Clean lines were important with a lot of over cupboards and base cupboards hiding internal drawers. A top drawer in either the benchtop material or complimentary colour/ texture was a favoured detail. There were an equal mix of handle-less and handled kitchens. Occasionally some very bold handle statements but more often a subtle approach. The Gola type handle was often used on the very top opening with push-to-open

doors and drawers elsewhere. Simplicity was the focus, the feature was the texture or door style not the handle. The surprising feature in a lot of the designs was the use of glazed display cupboards. The glass was often clear with dark timber interiors. The reason I describe it as surprising was that these display cabinets were often the pantry and main storage units. I’m not sure if the average Kiwi home would want clear glass doors on their pantry! Suspended steel framed shelving systems were in a lot of designs. These shelves were styled with some amazing herb gardens, lighting and art. Benchtops were certainly dark with heavy textures and natural finishes. A few gloss marble but an overwhelming number of heavily

textured porcelain often only 12mm thick. The 30mm granite and timber tops had a shark nose edge detail to reduce their visual thickness. To contrast these micro thin tops very deep “butler bowls” were used. These wouldn’t be in white porcelain but formed from solid marble or granite and sit on the bench rather than flush with it. Italian design tends to focus on the form rather than the function so a lot of ideas would struggle to work in your average kiwi home. But there is no way you cannot be impressed with the sheer design tenacity, some of these kitchens were pieces of art that were never designed to be cooked in. Mark Bruce CKD, Dip KD

moody veneers & kiwis aplenty at Milan This biannual Milan trade show captioned Technology for the Kitchen, is probably the most well known and attended event on the calendar for kitchen designers from around the world. This year there were 117 exhibitors, over 22,000m 2 of floor space, and 457,000 visitors. Well known NZ kitchen designer Mal Corboy attended and offers some comments on what he saw. What was your overall reaction? A great event as usual. I first went to EuroCucina back in 2000 and have seen a myriad of product and Mal Corboy

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 10

concepts on display over the years This year there appeared to be a similar pattern to recent times, as if designers and manufacturers were tending to play it safe. Although that may have been a reflection of the economic climate in recent times. While it was probably not as colourful as past events there was still an underlying energy. EuroCucina is excellent for making contacts internationally and finding useful information about amazing projects going on in other parts of the world

What caught your eye? Veneers were quite in vogue especially the darker, moody colours. The use of metals in a variety of applications like shelving in bronze and steel also stood out. You have to remember Eurocucina is largely a concept show and much of what you see may very well never be produced commercially. When it comes to design and manufacturing, I think New Zealand is right up there with the best and there were plenty of Kiwis and Australians at the show this time round. They seemed like they were everywhere.

Handle-less cabinetry with rich materials Milan based EuroCucina fair brings the future of kitchens into one creative hub. Halls of furniture and kitchens from the global design leaders – a showcase experience like no other. From a kiwi perspective, the overarching trends were a development of the 2016 show with some new materials and detailed combinations. Glass and mirror graced fronts in a range of tints, whole cabinet interiors we exposed through glass facades - styled to perfection with a playful use of light. Glass featured most on the island drawers and pull-outs with applications in overhead cabinets also. Materials expressed the natural with an exquisite array of timber veneers, stone, concrete and steel. Rich natural tones sensitively wrapped the exterior and interior of kitchens giving

them a furniture feel. Benchtops seamlessly transitioned into partial splashbacks or fell horizontal to vertical on base cabinets. Handle-less fronts were on show with double layered fronts to give a thin or notched profile. Laminate finishes with the appearance of stone or marble featured heavily with new anti-fingerprint technology. Of course, Blum products were incorporated whichever way you looked with Orion Grey and Terra Black LEGRABOX being a keen favourite. Onyx black hinges were on dark, timber and coloured cabinetry as well as behind timberframed glass doors. We look forward to seeing the inspiration hit the New Zealand market and thank everyone who met us on the trip or joined our Blum factory tours.

Continuous improvements delivering great results for Kitchen King Ltd With a new showroom, renovated offices, and the appointment of Jesse Staines as General Manager, 2018 has been a busy year for Silverdale based waste bin manufacturer Kitchen King. In addition to this the company has recently introduced compostable liners across its range of bins, re-developed its website and is about to introduce a new range of products which promise to excite the industry. These developments coincide with the return of Jamie Bertelsen from maternity leave to a directorial role where along with her father Allen she is able to provide support for Jesse in what is looking to be an important year for the company’s development. “In appointing Jesse we were looking for stability and strength in the leadership team to continue our recent momentum and prepare for the introduction of an exciting new range in the near future,” says Jamie, referencing the new product range that is about to be launched at AWISA in Sydney in July. “We realise the need to be progressive and innovative as a company and our new product line, new offices and new showroom are a reflection of that progress and of the way we want to present ourselves. The renovations provides us with the opportunity to display our products to consumers and the trade and train our staff while also providing somewhere comfortable for our team to work and relax.”

Kitchen King Director Jamie Bertelsen (right) with new GM Jesse Staines. The office revamp including a new showroom, boardroom and cafe style lunch room was developed with staged assistance from Kitchen Architecture and Shannon Pepper Design.

The company which prides it self on its ‘NZ made and designed’ label is committed to an ongoing local development program. “All we do is think about waste and recycling, we are specialists in that area,” says Jesse Staines. “R & D is a big part of our operation, we have an inhouse design engineer who is continually working on enhancing our existing range and developing new products.” Be sure to visit the Kitchen King stand at AWISA in July to see the unveiling of their new range of products to enhance waste and storage requirements throughout the house. If you can’t make it to AWISA this year do not worry you will be sure to see the new exciting products roll out across NZ at the same time. 

Held across many locations around the country, the roadshow provided us a unique opportunity to reach out, share and build on existing relationships. As a business we want to not only supply you with market-leading product, service and sales support, but also focus on cultivating great working partnerships. Time spent on the road reinforced for us as a team how important our customer connections are. Hot on the heels of our recent trip to EuroCucina 2018, the roadshow saw the return of Future Vision, an inspirational presentation delivered by Renee Hytry Derrington. Renee, Fletcher Building’s, Laminates & Panels Vice President of Global Design, shared an inside view into trend and colour forecasting for the next 18-24 months, as well as insights from EuroCucina. Alongside this, there was the Emerging Elements product showcase where we introduced some exciting new decors across our Melteca, Formica and Caesarstone ranges. Based on the positive feedback received we are very much looking forward to bringing these products to market in the coming months. Speaking of new product, our Melteca Acrylic Soft Touch colour range is now available. With its incredible depth of colour and super smooth matte finish, it’s not only an easy product to work with but also very on trend and comes with matching laser and ABS edgetape option. Please talk to one of the team to find out more. And finally a big congratulations to all of the winners in this year’s Master Joiners Awards. As a sponsor of the awards, Laminex New Zealand is pleased to support the dedication and craftsmanship in the joinery industry. The quality of entries this year was undoubtedly pleasing and a good indicator of the strength of the sector.

Biesse shows growth Biesse confirms its leadership position on the international market at Xylexpo 2018. A record 21.6 million euros in orders is evidence of the constant growth already anticipated by the results of the 2018 quarterly, which showed a 18.2% increase in incoming orders for the wood division compared to the previous year. The orders portfolio of the Group has also increased by 24%, reaching a value of 234 million euros, the highest in the history of the group. The 3000m2 Biesse stand at Xylexpo 2018 received visitors from all over the world, which underscores the event's international nature. Meanwhile, Italy continues to see the fair as a key reference point for discovering what the market has to offer. Biesse noted a significant Italian presence at the stand, more than in the past, accounting for 38% of the total for incoming orders, evidence of the intense responsiveness of the Italian market. “We are very proud of these results, which confirm Biesse's leadership in innovation and technology and are a testament to the fact that our customers want to move toward a more evolved and efficient approach to work and productivity with support from Biesse," stated Federico Broccoli, Director of the Wood/ Sales Division & Director of the Branches Division.

Biesse's investment in Xylexpo with a stand that focuses on automation and on the digitalisation of the factory has proven to be the right strategic decision. Companies of every sort showed great interest in the 4 automated solutions present on the stand, solutions capable of increasing efficiency and continuity in production, simplifying daily tasks. Along the same lines, the implementation of the SOPHIA service platform, presented at Xylexpo as a solution for the digitalised factory, caught the attention of the many journalists at the stand. “The trade shows and events Biesse has participated in over these past years have been a great source of satisfaction thanks to the increasing success we've had with visitors and customers who are seeking us out and relying on us to support their growth” stated Raphaël Prati, Biesse Group Marketing and Communications Director. “The interest we receive from them drives our own growth as we search for excellent technology that can transform the manufacturing process" Prati said in closing. The enthusiasm continues as Biesse focuses on the markets in Oceania and the United States for the next events on the schedule: AWISA in Sydney from 4 to 7 July and IWF in Atlanta from 22 to 25 August. 

big footprint big show With a footprint the equivalent of a one kilometre length of 8 lane highway, AWISA 2018 will be the largest AWISA ever. The show is taking place from 4-7 July this year at the new, multi-level International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour, Sydney. AWISA 2018 uses 28,000 square metres of space at the ICC’s exhibition centre. The new venue is built on the site of the biennial AWISA exhibitions that took place at Darling Harbour from 1992 to 2012. “One of the reasons for the size of the show is the number of machinery suppliers who will be featuring the latest in panel storage and retrieval systems. Together, of course, with huge ranges of the latest in CNC equipment. But AWISA 2018 is not just the place for the large equipment from the major suppliers, but as always there will be those interesting exhibits on smaller stands with innovative new machines, software or hardware,” said Geoff Holland, general manager of the Australian Woodworking Industry Suppliers Association Ltd. “Not only is AWISA 2018 by far the biggest AWISA ever, the design of the new ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre makes it unusual for an Australian trade show. The ICC is the first major exhibition centre in Australia to be built over two exhibition floors. AWISA Wood & Panel Processing is on one level and AWISADesign on the level above. All linked by stairs, escalators and elevators.”

The social side of AWISA exhibitions is also important. The show provides the chance to catch up with colleagues in the industry either on the floor of the show, or at one of the many supplier/customer events that take place each evening.

The ICC has two levels of exhibition space, serviced by four levels of foyers and meeting rooms.

ME 35 - SCM success story With many features of larger edge banders while remaining very simple to use SCM Group’s Minimax ME35 has become a real success story for Machines R Us and their customers in New Zealand, over the last few years. With the recent addition of single motor corner rounding as standard in the latest edition this compact edge bander offers all the right units for panel processing at a new level of investment for this sector.

JOINERS Magazine spoke to several of those who have purchased the SCM Minimax ME 35 and found comments reflected a sophisticated yet simple to use machine stacked with features not usually associated with an edge bander of its size and price. Future Products Group FPG have a staff of 18 joiners producing a range of commercial and bespoke projects meaning the edge bander is an essential part of their plant. “Our previous SCM was starting to age and when looking to upgrade we couldn’t go past the features the Minimax ME 35 offered,” says Joinery Supervisor Andrew Miller. “We didn’t need an edge bander to go 24 hours a day but we wanted one that had all the functions required for the top quality finish our clients require.

Its combination of compactness, modern technological capabilities and price point meant the choice was obvious. The benefits have been immediate. We can now apply solid wood edge strips (previously manually), have cleaner trimming and a tidier edge finish, meaning less manual tidy up. The operators enjoy the easy access glue pot changing and the simplicity of the machine which makes both change-outs and servicing a lot easier. We are getting exactly what we expected from the machine - great edges, less manual input.” Custom Built Kitchens Wayne Matthews owner of Custom Built Kitchens in the Waikato purchased his Minimax ME 35 last December. “We were replacing a previous SCM and have found the extra features on this one awesome.

beginning it was simple, the machine had been factory tested so the guys from Machines R Us installed and set it up in a day and we were running. The double glue pot system is really advantageous. We swap out glues quite often and now it is a five minute job compared to a couple of hours to clean and change the old system. The pre-milling and end rounding which we didn’t have previously means a lot more is done in the edging process and components come off it way more finished than before, virtually eliminating any clean up work which we needed to do previously. And the quality is great you can hardly see the glue line.

The Kitchen Lady

Custom Built Kitchens

The Kitchen Lady Joanne Mouat started her business in Tauranga last year and couldn’t be happier with her selection of the Minimax Me 35. “Its perfectly compact for our small workshop and has features as standard that are usually only found on bigger more expensive edge banders.” Shop foreman and operator Paul Comer is also very pleased with the machine. “The pre milling and corner rounding features are excellent and not usually found on a machine of this size and the glue changing set up is simple and quick with two glue pots meaning just a simple swap rather than having to empty and clean the pot on each change. It is also very simple to change most settings on the machine and moving from a 1mm to a 2mm tape is very quick, not always the case on bigger more complicated machines. Wendekreisen Travel Ltd Nazil Ali shop foreman for Wendekreisen Travel Ltd who manufacture and fit-out caravans purchased their machine two years ago and is a big fan. “It has just worked smoothly through that whole period and hasn’t given us any of the usual edge bander

headaches. It simply does a very good job and its array of features means we can do everything we require in house.” Chatswood Kitchens Gareth Williams of Chatswood Kitchens in Paraparaumu purchased their Minimax ME 35 in early 2017 and wished he had one of them 30 years ago. “ It is a nice little compact machine with so many features packed in for the price. Everything about it is pretty easy and pretty simple. Pre-milling which is usually only found on much larger machines saves a job and it comes with two glue pots - a great time saver - and all in the initial price. It also cleans up the board really well, we still give the job a scuff but it doesn’t really need it and the finish is great, white glue on white board is barely visible. Value for money I think it is the best machine on the market. I have absolutely no complaints - and any issue can usually be fixed by John Fleet over the phone - he is so experienced.” Need more production and edging features contact Machines R Us or visit SCM Group online.

Hutchco continues the tradition with a new management team it’s business as usual for edgeband product supplier Hutchco Enterprises, highly regarded as a supplier of edge banding product to the New Zealand market, has recently had a change of ownership. The business was established some thirty three years ago by Marshall Hutchinson, who built it by supplying the highest quality products at very competitive rates. The business has been acquired by Cardrona Importing Ltd, who along with their co owners the Caldwell family of Nelson will continue Hutchco Enterprises as a family owned and operated business. The business will be run by Mark Leith as owner and Managing Director. “We are fortunate to have retained Marshall Hutchinson Junior and the existing team at Hutchco and with their experience and knowledge of the industry, we know we will continue to provide the high level of service our

clientle old and new have come to expect over the past thirty three years. It will be business as usual” Mr Leith comments. Hutchco Enterprises has established a sound long term relationship with their European suppliers that is set to continue. This includes their main edgeband supplier Probos with their Proadec range including their 2mm Proflex and 1mm ProClassic along with their 1mm ProPaint paintable PVC and 1mm ProLaser all of which are European made. “We will also continue with our Tekton range, up to 65mm wide. There has been increased demand for this on commercial projects. Benefits of Tekton include continuous coil of up to 100 metres for easy application which feeds through a normal edgebander just like PVC, and pre primed binding agents.” comments Mr Leith. “We have a great range of

Graeme & Jeremy Posthuma

Nesting at optimum About fifteen months ago Optimum Furniture in East Tamaki, purchased a HolzHer 1308 XL edgebander from Holzher’s NZ agent Mike French of Technical Machinery Services Ltd (TMS). For owner Graeme Posthuma this was the start of a journey to make his manufacturing process quicker, more accurate and largely hands off. Recently he purchased a new CNC machining centre, a Nextec 7705, again from Holzher. Now along with his son Jeremy he has a modern and efficient nested based operation. Bob Nordgren from JOINERS Magazine spoke with Graeme and Jeremy about the impact this HolzHer ‘system’ has had on Optimum Furniture. “These two machines, the 1308XL and the Nextec 7705, have each in turn made the business more efficient and hence more competitive and frankly, easier to run” comments Graeme. A core activity for Optimum has been manufacturing kitchen cabinetry. Streamlining the MDF and Melamine board handling process was seen as key to being more efficient. “The edgebander has a really high level of automation with the Glu Jet Zero Joint with thin film technology offering a close laser like finish through a more accurate application of PUR glue as well as a closeness of bond. The cartridge hopper format has helped to speed up our output and improve the edge finishing quality. The very ability to use PUR glue and change colours in minutes is a real time and money saver. The 1380XL was for us, a really good buy.” says Graeme. A Game Changer The Nextec 7705 CNC machining centre represented a more concerning buy. “The whole

idea of automation was new for us and we were a bit nervous about the software and machinery available. It was a big financial commitment for us.” Graeme explains. “”The ‘Holzher system’ if you like, made that decision making process a whole lot easier though. The machine offered some obvious advantages such as a high flow nesting table with a continuous vacuum field and a ten position pickup tool changer integrated into the machine frame (upgradeable to twelve tool change positions) but just as importantly, the software with it allowed us to nest straight away without buying any expensive cad/nesting software packages until we worked out if we indeed needed any. That was a game changer for us.” The Nextec 7705 has an easy to use software library, preloaded in Germany by Holzher, with some 300 plus cabinets already installed ready to be modified to suit. Jeremy comments “It is really good as well because there was no drawn out training (just two days) before

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 40

we could produce cabinetry as the software had been designed with cabinetmakers and joiners in mind.” The ability to all of a sudden accept jobs that were previously too complicated for them to be competitive was enabled by using the DXF import functions of the Campus and Academy software on the machine. “Using the software also meant we could store different board and hardware configurations so different hardware settings need only to be made once and applied to cabinetry at will. The Laser teach and cut function makes it even more flexible. Another good buy for us - real value for money - especially with the straight forward installation, ongoing service and commitment from Mike and his team at TMS.” O p t i m u m F u r n i t u r e o ff e r s some twenty years experience providing finishes in timber veneer, solid timber, melamine and customwood. They make both residential and commercial

cabinetry as well as for the general office or reception areas. Their paint shop is equipped for two pot lacquer finishing offering a true high end finish. The business is now well positioned to offer a truly competitive, high quality product and service to its clientele, existing and new.

CAD+T efficiency at work An efficient nesting process starts with software, ends with ready parts and offers you a faster and more efficient material handling within the production process.

Interior Design & Production Software

Software solutions for bespoke furniture design, construction and production

CAD+T offer since more than 28 years complete software solutions for the interior design and furniture manufacturing industry. One of the main topics for manufacturing is nesting. Nesting is a key operation for machining of board materials like MDF, plywood or particle board. The goal is to achieve an ideal machining result, marginal wastage and the improvement of production flow. Nesting can be done with CNC machines, beamsaws or with advanced tools 3D nesting. Using CNC machines allows you to cut and run all further successive operations only on 1 machine.

Up to 50%* increase of factory productivity Up to 30%* reduction of labour cost

So far the digital part data could have been loaded to the machines software but needed to be aligned manually by an operator in order to run the nesting. CAD+T offers now a nesting tool which takes the CNC programs directly from the shop floor drawings, nest them and send the correct machine data in the right format directly to the machine. The software recognised automatically material and grain directions and chooses the right tool as well as the production process. This data can directly be used on the machine and doesn’t require any manual check.

CNC connection in less than a week

Advantages of CNC machines with more than one processing head is the possibility to manufacture 3D pocket cut outs using different broaching strategies, the speedup of tools for long operations and the selection of the right tool to achieve the highest quality of the surface. Using nesting sometimes leads as well to rethink your construction principals. What used to be done with drillings and dowels, can now be done with groove and rabbet. CAD+T offers different options for your production process and post processors for any established 3 and 5 axis CNC machines.

Visit us at:

Booth 1823 Hall: 1-4

Next to the nesting on CNC machines, CAD+T offer a solution for nesting on beamsaws. An intelligent sequencing, automatic shredding of material offcuts to achieve short processing times for wastage materials, handling of several jobs at the same time and the highest cutting quality mark the software. Powerful, configurable post processors cater for optimal performance of your machine for 3D Nesting. The software supports as well robot systems for feeding and allow you to define 3D cut-off regions.

We were spending four to five hours corner-rounding and cleaning up each kitchen – and it was time we just didn’t have.

Matt and Sarah Gubb ( front) with their Homag Ambition 1120C and staff.

reliability & flexibility Six years ago Matt Gubb started Stylish Interiors in an unused shed on a lifestyle block on the Kapati Coast. Today his company has large premises just north of Wellington on Grenada North industrial estate. With a team of five staff, a strong reputation in the residential market and a reputation for quality, the company’s growth is mainly due to sheer hard work on the part of Matt and his wife Sarah. “When I started in the shed it was with a few single-phase Ascent machines from Jacks” explains Matt. “I’d served my apprenticeship in the Wairarapa, then travelled and worked in the shop-fitting industry in the UK for a few years. When I came back to NZ I knew I wanted to start my own business, but with very limited funds the Ascent machines were all I could afford.” Several of these machines including the surface planer and thicknesser are still working today, albeit in significantly larger premises.

“I started out taking on all the work I could get” says Matt. “Solid timber, panel based – you name it. I made fences, repaired wooden windows, built wardrobes. After my first kitchen word of mouth caught hold. The first big job I got was a tender up in Ngaio, and I ended up winning Master Joiners Kitchen of the Region, and I haven’t looked back.” Since then Matt’s maintained good relationships with architects and building companies, as well as a local building supply store that passes on plenty of business. “I quickly outgrew the shed” Matt laughs, “so I extended it. Seven months later I’d outgrown it again so we found this place in Grenada North. It’s got room to grow, it’s close to the motorway north and south, and it’s really close to home.” Proud parents of a new baby, being close to home is important – and so too is finding another interior designer to cover Sarah while she’s on maternity leave. “We use PRO100” she explains, “so it’s simple to pick up. But with current workload there will be enough work for both of us when I return.” The work isn’t always straight-forward. Stylish Interiors’ reputation has grown

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 42

and Matt and his team are now in demand for everything from quality kitchens to complete house-lots of solid timber joinery. It was the continually increasing workload that lead Matt to upgrade his edgebander at the end of 2017. “I knew we needed to get more efficient” he says. “We were spending four to five hours corner-rounding and cleaning up each kitchen – and it was time we just didn’t have.” Matt purchased a Homag Ambition 1120C from Jacks. “I had trusted Jacks with the original machines and so went back. After some research, I was pretty satisfied with the Homag they offered me. I wanted reliability, which the Homags [previously known as Brandts] certainly have a reputation for. And I needed flexibility – and so getting two gluepots was a must.” The 1120C was installed soon afterwards and has been getting plenty of use. “We use it every day” says Matt, “and it’s performing exactly as I expected. Training was comprehensive and it’s easy to use. We use mainly 2mm pvc tape, but have also run clashings through and it performed spot-on. It’s saving us hours and hours.”

Matt also equipped his workshop with a Micronair EC4 dust extractor, and a Holytek singleend tenoner – and with plenty of space he’s been able to arrange his premises to allow for growth in the mix of panel and solid timber work they do. “We take the job from start to finish” he explains, “so the customer only deals with us – we arrange sub trades etc etc..With the space we have now then we pre-assemble everything before taking it to site. With a reputation based entirely on wordof-mouth, quality is key.” Quality and hard work have clearly contributed to Matt and Sarah’s success. And with space to grow, sensible investment in machinery that will grow with them, and a positive, can-do attitude then it’s clear there’s plenty more that Stylish Interiors will achieve in the years ahead.

Timbalook™ is a uniquely different woodgrain melamine: It looks different. It feels different.

See S ee the t difference F Feel eel the t difference

See & Feel With a uniquely textured surface, a synchronized picture and texture, and realistic image, Timbalook™ offers a melamine door with a look and feel of a wire-brushed veneer … with advantages.

The Timbalook™ Alphatape® has been carefully textured to imitate that of the Timbalook™ board, to create consistency throughout the panel, with thickness options available from 18 to 60mm thick. Timbalook™ is fast becoming an ‘ingrained’ part of modern kitchen design. Literally.

Why choose Timbalook™ over a natural veneer surface?


Consistency: With no lacquering, staining or colour matching required, Timbalook™ offers a veneer alternative that has a consistent colour throughout the sheets. As it is an easy cut & clash process, it is also a lot faster than a lacquered veneer finish. Durability: Being a durable, hard melamine surface, Timbalook™ won’t mark or scratch easily like a natural timber veneer, making it perfect for use in so many different environments. Sheet size: With a large sheet size of 2800 x 1830, your design opportunities are endless! Perfect for commercial fitouts, as well as cabinetry throughout the home. Price: The cherry on the top? Timbalook™ is a lot cheaper than a veneer finish. You can’t see that, but you can feel it! Feel the difference With a uniquely textured surface that expressly matches image of the melamine, Timbalook™ is well loved for its richly textured, soft and natural feel. To achieve a seamless feeling edge on the deeply textured board, Timbalook™ is edged with Invisedge® in combination with our special Timbalook™ edging technology.

business as usual in Southland Craig and Jeff continue to be excited about getting out and about promoting a very competitive and compelling offer. Based on full pack lots and with the added efficiency of production in the only integrated MDF to Melamine operation in NZ, WhiteBoard by Daiken Southland, on their MDF substrate, becomes much more competitive when compared with particleboard substrate alternatives.

Daiken NZ may have purchased the NZ business of Dongwha NZ, however it’s business as usual for Jeff Davenport, Craig Doughty & Natasha Munokoa in the Auckland office, just a name change to Daiken Southland Ltd - representing where the product is manufactured. Since the commencement of white melamine board production at the Southland plant about 3 years ago, the team have made significant inroads in the NZ market, “We have been successful in breaking into a pretty mature, commodity market so to gain some decent share has been very satisfying. “Customers have realised that our great service, attractive and competitive product offer helps their own bottom line” Jeff says.

wrapped, lacquered and latterly acrylics to name some of them) which have come and gone for cabinet usage, the Melamine faced product has endured as an integral part of the industry requirements. “Our TrueTones colours in particular find a niche in the commercial & shop fitting areas of the industry along with spec & multiple build housing projects, offering a good honest colour palette” according to Jeff

A positive development in 2017 saw the introduction of the TrueTones Colour board selection to extend the range with an additional five colours. Whilst there have been a myriad of designer trends (Euroboard, Melamine edged, vacuum

TrueTones has certainly been a beneficial addition to the Daiken offer for a number of customers, “given we do not require the array of marketing tools to promote five colours we have been in a position to offer very favourable prices to our customer base, which, given

the competitive nature of our industry has been very welcome” Jeff comments. As a significant NZ manufacturer of quality Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) the Daiken market offer for Melamine faced board product stems from MDF as the substrate, with most product available in both Standard NZE1 and MRE0 (Moisture resistant). Whilst weighing just a couple of kilos or so more than Particle board (per 16mm sheet), one significant advantage with MDF substrate is that it doesn’t telegraph particles through the melamine paper. This makes it a great decorative option that is also easier on your cutting machinery and holds screws and other fittings well.

Jeff, Craig and Natasha consider themselves ‘old school’, considering people, service and relationships as all important to them and critical to the ongoing success of the business.

The current models are stylish accessories and give each furniture item its own, unique appearance. Today Häfele is expanding the product range with a second series of 45 high-quality models. It is understood that functionality and quality are key ingredients in any Häfele product. As in the first handle series Häfele pays attention to workmanship and finish. The handles are each ergonomically designed to sit well in the hand. There are no unpleasant corners or edges that compromise the feel. The hardware is made of zinc alloy or aluminium and is suitable for any type of operation: for hinged and sliding doors as well as flap doors and drawers. Even heavy doors such as those found on refrigerators, dishwashers or on pull-outs for kitchen pantry units are easily opened. The handles are also easy to clean and therefore the perfect alternative for those who are disturbed by ugly fingerprints on furniture fronts with pushto-open functions.

Streamlined wardrobe manufacturing Wardrobes Plus is an active, small job shop that focuses on moving work quickly from order to install. Their recent purchase of Microvellum Software has enabled them to streamline the way they work, with automation at the core of the process. Wardrobes Plus, which employs 4 people on the shop floor and up to 6 in installation, currently manufactures and installs around 20-25 house lots a week. For the last fifteen years, owner Trevor Smith and his team have been using a standard design software package to supply their clients with presentation drawings and provide their production team a visual aid for assembly. However, due to the demands to improve efficiencies related to manufacturing, they began their search for new software that could efficiently link their design and manufacturing processes. They

selected Microvellum Software for several reasons. “Microvellum’s initial demonstration was very thorough. We soon realised that it was a great product with a good support hierarchy. We found the intuitive workflows and open architecture to be very appealing. The closet and wardrobe features were abundant and easy to customise.” says Trevor. Product support was also an important factor in the decision making process for Wardrobes Plus. “We were initially impressed by the support of the local team and their personalised assistance. Their online training, tutorials, telephone assistance, and community support forums are second to none in our industry. When issues or questions come up, we can quickly get the answers we need.” says Trevor.“Microvellum has an international presence as well as a strong local user base. This means that there is a large number of users that can influence the direction of the software and

can provide us insight as to how they’ve integrated it into their businesses. We also benefit from having a large pool of knowledgeable operators available to support our own growth.” says Trevor Upon implementing the programme, Trevor saw immediate benefits. “Now, our front-end design team can seamlessly send projects straight to the shop floor with very little detailer interaction. We have been able to reallocate resources from the shop to other areas of engineering and production. Our machinery is driven by

Microvellum’s CNC automation, resulting in consistent quality, increased production, and less waste.” “The choice to invest in Microvellum Software has been a good one. They are a very progressive company that focuses on user influence for new development and enhancements. I have seen significant improvements in my business since using Microvellum and have nothing but good to say about them.” 

Brio launches XY adjustable hinge Brio’s XY Adjustable Hinge set is ideal for exterior and interior door applications as the innovative design allows quick installation of the discreet surface mount hinges on timber and aluminium panels while providing easy vertical and horizontal adjustment, and all without removing the door.

Adjusting the hinge on an XY axis is as easy as winding an Allen key until the desired projection is achieved – on the X axis the hinge can be adjusted 3mm, and on the Y axis the hinge can be adjusted 5mm. Another benefit of the system is that by reducing the adjustment to only two planes, the compression between panel and weather seal is unbroken and the overall door or window installation can maintain energy-efficient performance.

The XY hinges are available in a satin stainless steel finish for doors up to 100kg in weight. For single or French doors up to 50kg in weight, the XY hinges are also available in cast alloy, powder coated black or white. For more information email nzinfo@allegion. com, or call 0800 477 869

enduring partnerships Owner of Aspire Joinery Bernie Hunt knows the value of good working partnerships. For more than 30 years he has been supplying Ryman Healthcare with all the joinery needs for their constantly expanding retirement village network and for half of that period he has relied on Biesse machinery to meet those manufacturing requirements. Bernie has been buying machinery off Biesse since the start of the CNC revolution around 15 years ago. “We still have that first CNC, a Rover B ST 4.4, and are still using it everyday, which has a lot to do with the fact that we have continued to buy Biesse,” says Bernie. “We have got to know and like their product, we know what we are getting.” The company currently have 3 other Biesse CNC machines, a Rover AG 1536 and a Rover B 1224 operating in nesting cells and a Rover A 1224 operating as a stand alone machine set up for one-off requirements. “Our A & B-line nesting cells do the bulk of the work and feature auto labelling and out feed, providing a hands free process where all we need is someone to maintain board supply and pick up the finished components.” The CNC’s feed into a top of the line Biesse Stream 8.0, a very sophisticated fully CNC edgebander with both PUR and AirForce glue application and a state of the art Italian return system.

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 64

keeping up with the growth of Ryman Healthcare is a bit like grabbing a tiger by the tail, you need to hang on to it - Biesse provide us with the means to do so “We are currently looking at adding a further Stream edgebander and replacing the A-line nesting cell which is now six years old, as we look to improve our productivity and throughput,” says Bernie. Improving productivity and throughput has been a constant theme for the Christchurch firm as their major client Ryman Healthcare has continued to grow over the years. “We are linked to their growth and need to keep up with it - and at an historical figure of around 15% per annum, that means, we need to provide double the amount of joinery for them every five years.”

“Biesse understand this and have had a vital role to play in assisting us achieve it. They have kept up with the technology jumps over the years and made them available to us, which gives us a lot of ongoing confidence in our ability to continue to achieve. In consultation with them we estimate our intended CNC upgrade of the A-line with the latest Biesse Rover B will see around a 20% productivity improvement, mainly through increased speeds and improved tooling set up. “The local Biesse team is very good, service wise they are geographically close, quick to respond to our needs, and they do what they say they will, when they say they will. Our close relationship means we are confident in being open with them in discussing future plans - where we want to be in 2 years time or five years time, and can work together on a strategy to put our business in that spot,” says Bernie. Biesse Christchurch representative Warrick Small also knows the importance of an ongoing relationship in understanding a

clients needs. “We are not just selling machines to Aspire Joinery or any of our clients, we are selling them efficiency into the future, keeping them informed on what’s available, where the industry R&D is going and what is pertinent to them. To do this effectively we need to understand their business cycles and growth requirements.” With Biesse as their partner Bernie Hunt sees the future for Aspire Joinery as exciting and stable. “Ryman Healthcare provide us with a natural growth path and Biesse provide us with the means to continue to meet it without having to employ more staff and increase factory size every few years. It is our continuing investment in machinery that keeps us competitive. We realise it is not good enough to have the perfect factory now, we need to be always improving - Biesse understand that and our ongoing relationship with them means we are confident our partnership with Ryman will continue to endure and remain profitable for us both.” 

Waterbased wood finishes becoming the norm

Photography by Kallan MacLeod

Waterbased coating systems have come a long way in recent years, with specialist finish coaters like PPG Industries really leading the way. JOINERS Magazine’s Bob Nordgren recently caught up with Adrian Armstrong who deals with technical sales and training for PPG General Industrial to find out what progress there has been in this competitive sector. “Waterbased finishing systems are where things have been heading for some time now” comments Adrian. “It’s not just because it is deemed safer to apply than solvent based and is viewed as an eco friendly product but it has become a very sound choice in its own right.” To demonstrate the point he took me to see a recently completed residential project in Auckland’s Whitford for Leah and Shaun Simpson owners of Central Joinery Ltd. “As you can imagine there is a fair bit of joinery in this project but of real interest is the finish used throughout the home but particularly in the kitchen area.” With a long island topped in specially made Corian and natural look veneered walnut storage cupboards astride the entrance to a hidden scullery behind, this is a stunning look created by designer Mal Corboy. The

cupboard veneer behind the island and underneath has been coated with a clear 500 Amerthane 2K waterbased polyurethane finish from PPG. Mal comments “The walnut appearance gives a rich look that never really goes out of fashion. I wanted a matt finish which enhanced the timber look without looking plastic. Combined with the Corian benchtop the total effect is quite striking.” I spoke with Shaun Simpson who commented “With Mal you just have to trust his judgement and my wife Leah and I have not been disappointed with the end result. The matt finish is just amazing throughout our home.” Adrian reinforces these comments, “What makes the 500 Amerthane a sound choice is that the sprayed on product gives a really excellent clarity and nude look on timber, in this case veneered walnut. To touch, it has a silky finish offering low reflectivity and excellent Mar resistance as well

as non yellowing properties. 500 Amerthane is designed as a high quality finish for a variety of places including kitchens, shop fittings and cabinetry and it performs.” This finish has also been used in other rooms in the home including the solid wood cabinetry in the TV room. The low reflectivity makes for a more melded look with the surrounds and really

highlights the wood itself. The finish complements the look the Simpsons wanted, a durable yet natural wood finish.

What’s in a name?

a new company name and found that this was a great example of the simplest solution being the best solution!

Fit MD Lyndon Boakes

During 2017, after a dozen years in business, Access Group undertook an extensive process of examining their purpose, culture, future and, most importantly, what's important for their customer base now and going forward. They found themselves at a crossroads with their trade customer base of kitchen makers, cabinet makers and joiners remaining critically important, but with a growing number of designers, specifiers and home-owning consumers finding them online, sourcing information and asking their kitchen maker to use Access Group products. That prompted Managing Director Lyndon Boakes to ask a pivotal question; was Access Group as a company name still appropriate to represent the brand, the company, its market position and product range? That question prompted the engagement of the expert services of a branding agency, who asked the Access team lots of searching questions, asked some of you, Access Group's trade customers, lots of questions and even asked a few friendly designers and architects to contribute. The outcome was virtually unanimous; we love the guys at Access Group, but that name’s not right and it doesn’t reflect, at all, what they do or who they are. Add to that, the fact that there are many other New Zealand businesses using ‘Access’ or a variation of it in their name in totally different industries, and the decision to change was an easy one. And then began the exciting process of developing a new name and a fresh new logo, look and colour palette. Access Group considered multiple options for

Positive momentum for OECE

Left to right: Phil Moen, Chey Brown, Mark Floris, Darryl Landers, Jack Wells, Ricki Jones, Vince Whittaker and Braydon Stone.

OECE Wood Coatings, the new Italian range of wood coatings from DBNZ Coatings is gaining positive momentum in various regions around New Zealand. Casey’s Furniture Finishes based in Nelson has been a pilot shop for OECE and has been successfully using the products for some three years, both pigmented and clears. Jack Wells and Darren Casey have been using OECE for a couple of years now. Darren comments that he finds OECE very easy to use given the simple mixing ratios. The quality of the polyurethanes allows him better spray application control and it works well in both high and low temperatures while giving

better depth and coverage which means he uses less product. This efficiency means that his finished costings are very economic. Darren also uses the polyester primer on MDF which gives him superior adhesion, sanding ability and fantastic gloss retention. “In twenty four years of operating a paint shop, I have found that the customer service from OECE to be the best I have experienced as I am dealing with family businesses and not just a corporate brand. The back up and technical support and training provides a superior level of service.” comments Darren.

... and industry training DBNZ Coatings have now conducted two training sessions at their Hamilton training centre. The first featuring a number of representatives from some of their national distributor network and the second being furniture finishing technicians from Nelson, Taupo and Hamilton while a third training session has been booked with spaces filling up fast. Dean Adamson, Managing Director of DBNZ Coatings comments DBNZ is the first wood coatings provider in New Zealand to offer formal training and the attendees are finding the course material to be very beneficial and a significant help to their skill and understanding of the OECE brand.” JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 72

Dean also commented that OECE will be releasing water based products in the third quarter of 2018 including pigmented and clear coatings for timber substrates, plus a water based system for glass coatings adding “In early May DBNZ hosted Sergio Fugazza, the Global Export Sales Manager and Andrea Dotti, Global Technical and Colour Manager from Sherwin Williams in Italy. Both gentlemen visited most of our current national distributor network along with a number of key customers.” 

Her business, German Kitchens Ltd is a high-end kitchen retail and design studio in Wellington which pushes the boundaries of innovation and creativity. Part of Milvia’s team’s success can be attributed to her work ethic and positive, bubbly approach to everything and (in her apprentice’s own words) – ‘she’s a really good person to be around’. Milvia says, “I encourage my staff to express their own style. Work should be fun - if you find a job you love, then you’ll never seem to be working again! “The key to managing a successful business is allowing yourself, and your business, to evolve over time. Training plays a key part as it allows the individual, the business and the industry to grow. Industry training sets a benchmark for the trainees to achieve, to gain knowledge, experience and a qualification – in turn, this gives the customers confidence that they are dealing with a qualified industry professional. But it shouldn’t stop there - there’s always something new to learn every day. Every job is a chance to try something new.”

wise words As a small company of four, the team at German Kitchens Ltd work closely together, and trainees are involved with the customers from the start as well as being involved in all the daily aspects of the business. Because of this, the company has a very strong team culture. Milvia says, “Success runs both ways, so providing trainees all the necessary encouragement and assistance to succeed is important. You need to be hands-on and willing to break down processes into smaller chunks to facilitate effective learning. “Running your own business can be hard going at times. I might work 80 hours a week for myself,

an introduction

Quantum Timber Finishes Quantum Timber Finishes is a division of the Australian owned manufacturing company Mirotone. The Quantum product range has a focus on environmentally sustainable, environmentally responsible bio-based timber conditioners and finishes. The product range includes: • Interior and exterior timber finishes • Decking finishes • Wood treatments • Flooring finishes • DIP Quantum products are supplied in Australia through a large network of local trade paint stores, supplying professional tradespeople and DIY customers. Now in New Zealand, Mirotone is introducing these products to the market. A growing number of architects and designers are specifying Quantum products as they see the benefits of these environmentally responsible products designed especially for Australian and NZ conditions. Quantum is dedicated to ecologically sustainable products. In order to marry ecological concerns with the durability of our products, we conduct internal research and testing and source outside technologies to develop products which are both effective and safe. ABOUT US Quantum Timber Finishes began in 1992 following numerous requests to develop a timber treatment that would not only work in Australia’s extreme weather conditions, but would also be environmentally friendly and sustainable. Australia's climate varies greatly throughout the eight states and territories; there are four seasons across most of the country and a wet and dry season in the tropical north. Quantum Timber Finishes understood that climate variations would affect all timber substrates differently and so began the challenge of creating products that would not only protect and coat timber in all types of Australian climates, but creating products without harsh chemical bases. This differentiates Quantum Timber Finishes products in the market. Quantum Timber Finishes recognised there was a gap in the market and began to experiment with non-traditional forms of paint manufacturing. With this philosophy at the forefront they soon developed AQUAOIL and TIMBRE PLUS.

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 76

These finishes are unique in nature as they are formulated using vegetable derived resinated oils sourced entirely from renewable resources i.e. they do not have a petro chemical base and are made using very minimal of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). As the company has grown it has expanded its product range to the full range available today. Mirotone makes the products in Australia which enables us to monitor the factory process assuring our customers of the highest quality, environmentally friendly products on the market. They are also tested in practical commercial applications prior to release. Exposure testing is carried out in coastal and alpine areas. The drive behind our ongoing research is to further develop products that outperform in the wood care field whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

BENEFITS OF QUANTUM TIMBER FINISHES PRODUCTS Bio-Based Products Quantum Timber Finishes do not use a petrochemical base. Instead products are formulated with vegetable derived resinated oils. These oils are biodegradable, non-toxic and derived from renewable resources, thus making them safer for both the applicator and user. Renewable resources also produce significantly less greenhouse gases than petrochemical products. Reduced Environmental Impact The paint and coatings industry is under increasing pressure from both consumers and regulatory agencies to reduce the environmental impact of its products and processes. With the core focus of the business “Environmentally

Sustainable, Environmentally Responsible”, Quantum Timber Finishes has paved the way with its business practices from inception. Low VOC - Green Building Council of Australia compliance Volatile organic compounds, usually referred to as VOC’s, are organic compounds that easily become vapours or gases, and contain elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, sulphur, nitrogen and carbon thereby making them hazardous to the environment and those who suffer from paint allergies. Most of Quantum products comply with Green Building Council of Australia Green Star Rating. Green Star – Office Design v3 & Office as Built, Table IEQ-13.1 Maximum TVOC Content Limits for Paints, Varnishes and Protective Coatings. As members of the Green Building Council of Australia, Quantum is proud to be helping to improve the environmental efficiencies in buildings while improving the health and well-being of our community. Green Star compliant products are increasingly being specified by architects in commercial and home builds. Penetrating Oil not a Surface Coating Unlike other timber coating manufacturers, Quantum products are designed to be a penetrating oil. This means the coating does not sit on the surface of the timber leaving the inner section of the timber exposed to the elements. Instead the products work by deeply penetrating into the timber to protect and beautify the timber substrate by binding the wood fibres together, this forms a protective barrier from moisture which prevents peeling, cracking, warping or splintering. Easy Clean Up All Quantum products are water wash up. We are often asked how an oil based product can be washed up in water! Quantum products are made from oil based resins emulsified in water (water acts as the solvent). As water is the carrier “solvent” it will also work to clean the finished product.

timing is everything •

Ensuring a disciplined review of dates and the plan is an everyday activity.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower summed it up: “In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” We can apply this thinking to our furniture and joinery businesses by dedicating more proactive time to understand the risks to project timelines, including our clients' own ability to predict site measure and installation ready dates. Every customer is different, so think about how often you should be reviewing dates in your sales pipeline, as well as confirmed forward work.

Last issue, we discussed monitoring the use of time and materials to keep a focus on improving project and business profitability. But what about timing? Sometimes – in fact, quite often – despite the best made plans, we end up working overtime or having "gaps" in production due to tight or shifting deadlines. In many parts of the country, the building industry is still working at its limit or beyond its capability. There seems to be little room for flexibility, and the desire for more volume is creating inefficiencies.

How do we get off to a better start with regards to timing? It’s easy to be "busy" – but I would urge you to try and stop your people from using this four-letter word! If they say they're busy, ask them about their priorities and commitments. "Busy" may actually mean "unfocused" or "out of control", which flies in the face of the "do it once, do it right" goal. I believe that there are three key things to focus on:

When we break promises to our clients, and our integrity comes into question, it's easy to feel compelled to begin a project just to save face, and then return later to complete it.

Understanding and improving your own estimating, planning and operating performance so you have the best possible plan (refer March 2018 issue).

Starting before you're ready or trying to finish without everything you need is unlikely to produce an outstanding result or customer experience, nor the optimum profit. The problem can exacerbate itself too, as the unfinished list keeps growing and more time is lost, potentially resulting in remedial works and dissatisfied customers.

Having a proactive, trusting relationship with your clients, their project managers, their builders and your own suppliers and subcontractors, so you have the most realistic, up-to-date informationregardingtiming and lead times.

Consider what would you have to do to become known as the most organised company on every project you are involved with? To quote a CEO I used to work with, "a good plan is a flexible plan". Do more planning – not to create a long-term schedule, but make short, daily or weekly plans. Then you can steadily adjust as you go and as more information comes to hand. 

ThermoWood® INTENZ™ the alternative for Western Red Cedar Humans and their never ending hunger for improvement, in search of perfection in the world of wood have led to the next generation of timber products by means of Modification. An example of manipulating a natural product to serve our society, in an acceptable way, sustainable, environmental friendly yet nothing to do with genetics … Timber Modification is bringing a new generation of timber products. It is technically incorrect to refer to a new “timber-treatment” mainly because the properties of the timber after the process are permanently changed, effectively resulting in a new timber species. There are two main categories of timber modification processes, chemical and thermal. Chemical examples are Acetylation and Furfurylation, thermal modification is generally referred to as TMT (Thermally Modified Timber). Among those two categories there are several different technologies and brands on the market catering for a variety of applications. Tunnicliffe’s introduced ThermoWood® 230 to the New Zealand Joinery market in 2009.This new timber species is created from our traditional New Zealand grown Radiata pine with the help of a thermal modification process called ThermoWood® originating in Finland. The timber is “cooked” at 230 degrees to achieve maximum increase in stability and durability. The new product has been maturing over the last 9 years and received a new name:ThermoWood® INTENZ™. The new brand name is referring to “intense” as it has been modified to the maximum temperature of 230 degrees, ensuring maximum stability and durability without the help of any chemicals.

What led us to get started with thermal modification? Our traditional Radiata pine is a great timber species, yet its biggest downfall is instability. We had the desire to find a solution for that instability effecting specific joinery applications such as larger solid doors warping, jamming doors and sashes during wet weather. The first product was our finger-jointed and laminated ThermoWood® mullion that stayed straight. Next was a large section of clear to produce the big sill sections for double-hung windows. The increase in rebate sizes from 44 x 14 up to 65 x 18mm for exterior timber joinery is causing treated pine to cup or “curl”. With ThermoWood ® INTENZ ™ you completely avoid that issue. During the past 10 years since its introduction ThermoWood® INTENZ ™ has found its niche and is gaining ground where preservative treated Radiata pine and Western Red Cedar used to be the norm. We learned a lot over the years and received plenty of valuable feedback from our customers. The main area of growth for ThermoWood® INTENZ™ is offering an alternative to Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar (WRC), with its characteristic look and smell, is a fantastic timber and has been for a long time in the New Zealand joinery industry. However feedback from joiners is that WRC, in general, is not what it used to be. When you have a closer, critical look, you find a number of areas in which WRC is letting itself down. And when you think of it you would be keen to find an alternative for the future. Quality and Sustainability In the past we used a lot of Californian Redwood for cladding and joinery. This resource ran out and we made a switch to WRC. History repeating itself may apply; it seems that the harvest is moving away from old crop trees to planta-

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 82

tion forests, sustainably managed but not producing the quality we were used to. Importers predict that we can expect to see more sappy and knotty timber to work with in the future. ThermoWood® INTENZ™ comes from a truly sustainable resource, here at home in good old New Zealand. There is plenty of it and the quality will be there for a long time to come. Durability Western Red Cedar is a wellestablished timber species in New Zealand. When we evaluated the ThermoWood® durability trials at Scion in Rotorua (former forest

research) we were surprised to find that we could not compare our results with WRC. The timber was never trialled and tested in New Zealand, there is simply no data available.WRC is featuring in our building standard yet, according to feedback from joiners over the years we know that WRC has some serious limitations as to its durability at times. ThermoWood® INTENZ™ is effectively a naturally durable timber like WRC. A naturally durable species we have data for in New Zealand is Cupresses macrocarpa. ThermoWood® INTENZ™ proved to be more durable than Macrocarpa heartwood in accelerated

Exterior Timber Joinery (severe exposure) decking trials. One should not really compare with the Hazard Classification system as it applies to chemically treated timber, but if you do ThermoWood Ž INTENZ ™ also out-performs H3.1 LOSP treated Radiata pine sapwood and comes very close to H3.2.

been taken out by burning o. The resin canals that travel tangentially through the wood are opened up, making the timber more permeable. You will ďŹ nd that the ďŹ rst coat of primer is more or less sucked in. The paint holds very well, making a signiďŹ cant contribution to the products durability.

When compared with chemically treated timber, under pressure the chemicals are never going to disperse evenly throughout the timber due to the variation in the timber ďŹ bres. There is generally more of the preservatives on the outside of the timber than deeper within and heartwood is very diďŹƒcult to treat full stop. An important feature is that heat goes everywhere consistently, evenly modifying all timber ďŹ bres. This means that no matter how much you cut and machine ThermoWoodÂŽ INTENZ™, this will not compromise the durability of that piece of timber.

Machining A common annoyance when machining WRC is that it tends to chip. Less so with ThermoWoodŽ INTENZ™.

ThermoWoodÂŽ INTENZ™ is used as an alternative solution and currently under Code Mark application. Pricing As an imported species WRC has shown signiďŹ cant price uctuations over time due to exchange rate variations and overseas market conditions. ThermoWoodÂŽ INTENZ™ being a locally “grownâ€? timber is not subject to these variables, oering price stability. It has no speculative components for importers covering risks. WRC is a relatively expensive timber. ThermoWoodÂŽ INTENZ™ is now a quality Kiwi commodity, reasonably priced and keeping our Kiwi dollar within our own economy just got to be good for all of us. Painting WRC can be problematic to paint. The timber contains tannic acid and other extractives conicting with paint systems.ThermoWoodÂŽ INTENZ™ paints extremely well due to the fact that all resin, which normally conict with paint, has

Screw-holding Screw holding can be a problem with WRC. During our in-house screw withholding tests we found ThermoWoodŽ INTENZ™ to have 20% more holding power than WRC.



1=6 -0) 3URÂżOHV

Stability and Strength What WRC and ThermoWoodŽ INTENZ™ have in common is stability and strength, both are very similar for both species.

• • • •

So when you sum it all up WRC is proven, old school, well established, but arguably on the way out. ThermoWoodŽ INTENZ™ is new, young and innovative with a growing reputation, making its mark now and even more so in the very near future.

Tradies build dream house for NZ’s toughest customers to be trade qualified,” says Quinn. “The construction industry is facing huge demand with an increase of 13% in job numbers expected over the next four years. We need to attract more people, and it’s not just to fill the typical roles people first think of like being on the tools. Apprenticeships provide fantastic and varied career opportunities for people with a range of skillsets and passions.”

The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) launched a new campaign in May aiming to show New Zealanders anything is possible with a career in the trades. Called TradeUP, the goal of the campaign is to encourage more Kiwis to sign-up to an apprenticeship to meet the demand the construction industry continues to face. To demonstrate what is possible in the trades, a group of talented Kiwi apprentices had just five days to build one of the most difficult design briefs they will ever receive. Wellington siblings, eight-year-old Xavier and sixyear-old Tui, designed their dream house, complete with his and hers turrets, a slide and a rock climbing wall. The group of seven BCITO apprentices had just five days to make this dream a reality and showcase that anything is possible. The project was led by Cody Webby, who recently completed his apprenticeship through

BCITO. “The team had their work cut out for them to get the job completed on time and up to the high expectations of Xavier and Tui. This isn’t your regular project, it tested their skills to the limits – but they were up for the challenge and Tui and Xavier were stoked with the results,” says Webby. BCITO is the leading provider of building and construction industry apprenticeships in New Zealand. The build showcased many of the 15 trades that BCITO

offers including carpentry, brick and block laying and glass and glazing. BCITO Chief Executive Warwick Quinn says he hopes the project will encourage more people to consider a career in the trades. “New Zealand still desperately needs more apprentices in the building and construction industry to meet demand. About 50,000 workers are needed in the construction industry over the next five years, about half of these need

Due Process Geoff Hardy

Treat your joinery contract like a live hand grenade


e spend most of our time advising tradesmen or building owners on what to put in their building contracts, and how to resolve disputes with each other. When it comes to a dispute, we try to find “quick and dirty” ways to resolve it, rather than the traditional way of spending a lifetime and a fortune in court, or arbitration. Those traditional methods just aren’t affordable for the average small-medium tradesman or building owner. Fortunately for tradesmen and building owners alike, ever since 2002 they have had a fast and economical alternative available to them, which is called “adjudication” under the Construction Contracts Act (the “CCA”). CCA adjudication is great for a number of reasons. First, there are very tight time limits, so you generally get a result within two months. Secondly, there are no drawn-out procedures before you even get into arguing your case, and no hearings where lawyers stand up and argue their case at all. Instead, one side simply sends in their written claim and supporting evidence, the other side sends in their written response and supporting evidence, and the adjudicator reads them both and then issues a written ruling. Thirdly, the adjudicators are experts in the building industry or construction law, so the outcome is usually reasonably sensible. Fourthly, adjudications cost a lot less than court proceedings or arbitration. We have done many, many adjudications for tradesmen clients and most of them have been very successful. You never get 100% of what you are asking for, but anything above 75% is

a great result. In fact as long as you get more than you spent in legal and experts’ costs, then you are winning, because you wouldn’t have got anything at all otherwise. However there are a few adjudications where the tradesman is bitterly disappointed at the outcome, and the purpose of this article is to explain why, so you can avoid falling into the same trap. The CCA adjudicators are in a difficult position. Unlike the Referees in the Small Claims Courts (officially known as the Disputes Tribunals), they are not allowed to reach a decision that they think is fair and reasonable, if that is incompatible with what the law says. They have to follow the law, and in their case, that means strictly applying the terms of the building contract. After all, the law assumes that whatever the contract says, represents the bargain that the building owner and the tradesman knowingly and willingly agreed to at the outset. It doesn’t matter if one or both parties didn’t know what was in it or didn’t understand it. The law assumes that you did. It’s not so bad if your joinery contract has been written specifically for you, because you will be familiar with its terms, it won’t require you to comply with overly formal procedures, and it won’t place unrealistic expectations on you. The same is true if you don’t use a sophisticated joinery contract at all, but instead you simply submit a quote with some fine print in it containing your terms and conditions of trade. The problem arises when you are forced to use a contract such as one of New Zealand Standards’ or the New Zealand Institute of Architects’ contracts, or a formal

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 86

subcontract such as SA-2009 put out by Master Builders and the Specialist Trade Contractors Federation. Those contracts are designed to be used in the biggest construction or infrastructure projects imaginable, where the clients and contractors are huge corporations, and the contract price is in the hundreds of millions. Consequently the NZS and NZIA contracts and SA-2009 impose very strict rules on the contractors and subcontractors. If you want to be paid extra for a variation, you have to identify the variation in advance, you have to price it, and you have to document it, all within strict time frames. Similarly, if you believe you are entitled to a time extension, you have to say so as soon as the delay is foreseeable, you have to seek permission in writing, and you have to justify it. If you don’t do those things, you won’t be granted your variation or your time extension. You will have to bear the cost yourself, and still finish by the original deadline. Or face the consequences, which is that you will have to pay damages to your client or your head contractor. And those can deprive you of your entire profit on the job. This is what catches out most small-medium tradesmen. They don’t know these contracts wordfor-word, they aren’t familiar with the complex rules, and they don’t follow the proper procedures. What that means is that when it comes to an adjudication, the Adjudicator has no choice but to hold the tradesman to the terms of the contract. That can result in the tradesman losing something like $20,000$50,000 or more, which is obviously crippling to someone who doesn’t earn much more than

that and is struggling to put food on the table. What it also means is that the tradesman has voluntarily donated $20,000-$50,000 worth of free building work and materials to a wealthy building owner, who doesn’t have to pay a cent for it, even though he got the benefit of it. Obviously from a fairness point of view it doesn’t seem right, but from a legal point of view, if you didn’t follow the rules then you have to suffer the consequences. The essential point of this article is this. Building contracts are not pieces of paper to sign and then put in the bottom drawer. They are like a time bomb waiting to go off. If you don’t have the resources to understand them and comply with them, then refuse to sign them. And if you are forced to sign them, then get to know them intimately and comply with them. That is a big ask for a tradesman who doesn’t have a team of experts on his payroll, but there are other ways of dealing with it. Law firms like ours know these contracts inside and out, and we can train you in their requirements in a matter of hours. The cost of that won’t break the bank, and if it’s going to save you $20,000$50,000, you don’t need to be Einstein to work out that it’s a fairly good investment. 

THERE’S NO BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE ANOTHER YEAR IN OUR INDUSTRY THAN AT THE ANNUAL NKBA CONFERENCE. It’s a great opportunity not only meet new friends and catch up with your peers, but also take the chance to reflect on the year that was and celebrate the best with the 2018 Excellence in Design Awards. Friday will see the conference programme roll out at the majestic Kelliher Estate (set on a privately owned Island in Auckland’s Manukau Harbour). This beautifully restored Spanish Mission homestead will be our playground for the day as we network, explore ideas and learn more about technology@work with a variety of activities and guest speakers. We will end the day with a celebration of the conference as guests enjoy an evening function in the stunning location.

Saturday night will see the climax of our conference in the hosting of the 2018 Excellence in Design Awards, inside the third floor Dome at the magnificent Auckland War Memorial Museum. As always this provides a chance for us all to recognise the best in the business and celebrate the quality and craftsmanship that is the backbone of our industry.

REFLECT ON THE YEAR THAT WAS AND CELEBRATE THE BEST WITH THE 2018 EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN AWARDS. We’re excited that the accommodation for the conference will be the new Naumi Hotel, close to Auckland airport. It boasts internationally acclaimed design features and will be host to our sponsors’ pod sessions on Saturday morning. The 400 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding is just the beginning as the hotel facilities have to be seen to be believed (and we know it will spark much conversation amongst our design community).

So don’t miss this opportunity to be part of it all. Conference registrations are now open via our website.

See you there!

STATE OF THE INDUSTRY Reports from Branch Presidents June 2018

AUCKLAND I think we have just had the best Summer and the mildest Autumn that I can ever remember. The Waitemata Harbour and the greater Hauraki Gulf have been amazing and as busy as the Southern motorway the fishing has been great. Auckland has continued to be reasonably busy. Everywhere you go you can see cranes in the skyline. These are mainly on commercial sites and keep a lot of trades people extremely busy. We are experiencing a real shortage of trades people at present in all trades which is a real concern. I keep expressing my concerns to all our members at Auckland Master Joiners meetings and advise them all to take on an apprentice whenever they can. This is not going to help our situation now, but if we don’t start training now then we will be in the same predicament for years to come. I believe that in the residential building sector the handbrake came on a little leading up to the Elections and I don’t think that it’s has been fully released yet. Group housing is steaming ahead but this is not the type of market for a solid timber joiner. Auckland Master Joiners is going really well. Our membership is still growing and our meeting attendance is continually growing. We are holding our meetings regularly at our suppliers’ / associate members’ premises with factory visits included where we can. We had 60 members attend our last meeting. I believe that it is mainly JMF NZS:4211 reports and progress that is getting most of our members along to the meetings, as well as guest speakers when we can. We just recently held our annual fishing trip with over 50 members and associate members attending. There were around 170 fish caught with some great prizes given out at our last meeting. We also had a golfing day just prior to Christmas - this was the first of what will hopefully become an annual event. Many thanks to all our sponsors who make these events worthwhile and this is a great way to get everybody together for a friendly catch up instead of our normal day’s work where we are always competing against each other. That’s about it from me, it’s Sunday morning and the lawns need mowing again, so on with the gumboots. – Dave Cunningham

CANTERBURY Now a good third of the way through the year, the general feeling from our members was that while most had hit the ground running after the Xmas break, the signs for the future were for a steady flow of work. However, some also agreed that it was a changing climate in Christchurch and we are having to look for the work and do a bit of negotiating. A bit different to the past few years where it was a case of “can you do the work in this time frame”, it’s becoming price competitive now. It really depends on who you talk with as some companies are busy, some are patchy. I recently attended a seminar held by the ANZ bank which covered a few interesting topics on the rebuild in CHCH. The C.B.D currently in the office sector had 267,826sqm of stock which is 195,121sqm leased, 73% the forecast for 2018 is to increase this to 356,403sqm, currently rents are 360-400 per sqm. The forecast is for a downward pressure on rents effectively $300-$350per sqm and a slow down on construction. With several anchor projects completed, some are saying that we are on the verge of something spectacular, however slightly stalling this is the delays on the east frame residential, Convention Centre and the Stadium and Metro Sports facility. On the residential side of things the outer areas of Christchurch are slowing with the exception of Lincoln and Prebbleton. As said, the inner city momentum is building with the eastern frame about to kick off. Developers have reignited the central city’s mojo with the first few bars of many opening Antony Goughs Terrace development (the old strip). The other great area is Little High, a development by Mike Percasky and his syndicate. Also the Farmers market about to be built at the end of Cashel Mall is reported as going to have a big impact in the CBD. Canterbury membership still remains strong with a good turnout to most monthly meetings which makes for some good discussion on various topics. Bad debts don’t seem to be much of an issue at the moment with the majority of Joiners keeping them well under control. - Mark Allworthy CENTRAL With Christmas already a distant memory, everybody in the Central region seems to have hit the ground

JOINERS Magazine June 2018 page 92

running this year with reports of heavy workloads right across the board. New housing seems to be the strongest with consents well up on last year. The small town of Feilding is leading the way on this with a massive increase in growth We’re very lucky here that we have a huge amount of developable land available around the town which is being snapped up and rezoned at the moment to accommodate around 1,000 new sections. This demand is mainly due to an influx of Aucklanders moving to an easier lifestyle and further development at Ohakea air base which is constantly growing in size. If the Singapore Airforce end up bringing their F14 fleet here that will only increase again. This growth is substantial for a town of only around 17,500 people. The recently completed FMG head office brought a boost to the commercial sector but this area is getting quiet of late, though I'm sure it won't last. Our annual MJ golf day was on the 6th of April. This is always well supported by our members and suppliers and this year was no exception with 74 participants. JMFNZS:4211 seems to be gaining momentum with a lot more discussion around promoting this in the other regions outside Auckland. I'd like to point out that Andrew Long is doing a great job with this and his enthusiasm and dedication is second to none. I look forward to seeing all of you at the Auckland conference. – Andrew Reilly HAWKE’S BAY / POVERTY BAY We are now well into 2018, with Autumn still being fairly warm and the workloads steadily rising. Our region continues to be very buoyant with February having 61 consents and March having 53 consents for new construction in the Hawkes Bay area alone. A large number of joinery companies have good forward workloads up to 9 months ahead and some into next year. Unfortunately, even in these busy times, a local franchisee (Hawkes Bay, Taupo and Gisborne) of a national building company has announced that their company has ceased trading and gone into liquidation. This of course affects all the sub-trades who are now left out of pocket with this company owing some subbies $50k or more. One subbie was interviewed by the local

newspaper and was quoted as saying “we’re the ones that get caught all the time not being paid- and that’s not just Hawke’s Bay, that’s the whole country. I think there should be something that can safeguard us in the sub-trades. We are always the ones left without”. I sympathise with this subbie and agree there should be something we can do. Another gripe … Retentions! Why is it even after the new law is in place, joiners and other sub-trades are still having to wait more than 12 months to get the final 10% on commercial (including private homes for construction companies) jobs? This could do with some more clarification as there seems to have been no real change. Other recent happenings ... the government has announced there will be 49 new state homes built in Hastings and Napier, starting from now (one report was that the houses would be built by June, not sure what year though). This along with a huge amount of other planned housing will put a strain on local builders and other sub-trades. We are seeing growth also in the commercial and retail sectors with less vacant shops and more new shops and eateries opening up. Tourism is on a high and that will also have a flow on effect to many other industries and businesses. Looking ahead for our local branch of NZJMF. We held our local HB/PB Master Joiners Awards 2018 dinner which was an enjoyable evening for all. We also have an upcoming Mid Winter dinner after the conference on June 21st at the Mission Estate. All in all 2018 looks very promising. I wish all of you, all the best for the year ahead.–Simon Molloy NELSON / MARLBOROUGH Yes, we are already half way through the year. It seems like many of our members have full order books for many months and are looking at great opportunities this year. The cloud of the low number of qualified joiners and the small number of apprentices continues to cast a shadow over many businesses and companies with aspirations for growth. As we all struggle to accommodate the demands of our customers and are trying to perform beyond our manufacturing capabilities, then expanding our available workforce becomes imperative for the longevity and the success of the joinery industry in Nelson. Our region

has just celebrated a milestone to now have 32 apprentices over two training providers. We have a goal to have over forty in our region by this time next year. With the introduction of a new pre-trade course for joinery that NMIT commenced this year, this has allowed students to get an insight into the joinery industry. This has been achieved on the back of a buoyant market and a campaign that we have been running the last couple of years. We are also working closely with High Schools, Year 8 Students and the NMIT to promote our industry and the benefits and advantages of becoming a joiner. Recently our members completed a survey within our region that included a SWAT analysis on the members’ expectations of Master Joiners nationally and locally. The results are a great platform for our region to move forward.The awards are upon us and I guess like me most businesses have little time available for such an extravagance. However, again we will be running our own independent local Joinery and Design awards, inviting non Master Joiner members to also participate. We hope to embrace the design community whilst increasing our brand positioning within the local building industry. This is becoming the most important night of our year not only as a celebration but also as a statement to the wider industry of what we can do or what we can achieve in the region. Using an abridged version of a Barack Obama quote; “the joiners who out-educate today will out-compete tomorrow”. – Myles Sellers OTAGO With the winter season looming, everybody is hunkering down with predominantly full workloads ahead and plenty of pricing being completed which is a good sign. By the areas, Southland is steady in housing but there has been a decline in the commercial work which is normal for this time of year. Otago is steady, however the University is starting to re-develop and some major contracts are now underway or upcoming. Central Otago is still booming, however consents have levelled off over the last couple of months - is this a trend? All areas are saying that labour is their main concern and if a qualified joiner happened to walk in the door looking for a job they would be employed asap. Having said that, if businesses are looking at employing, then most are now taking the long-term view and looking at training and employing apprentices. This has to be good for the industry. On the Master Joiners side of things we

are having our AGM this Friday (25th May) followed by a boat charter down the Dunedin Harbour to Careys Bay Hotel where we will have a meal and social gathering. Should be good, then it’s onto the conference in Auckland and for some, AWISA in Sydney. - Peter Fisher TARANAKI After a relatively slow start to 2018, workloads have picked up in the Taranaki region. There doesn’t appear to be any obvious reason for the sluggish start but let’s put it down to people living outdoors enjoying the wonderful summer we have had. Now the weather is turning, and more time is spent inside, they are starting to think about kitchens and other joinery projects that need attention and of course it will have to be done by Christmas. Whatever the reason, we are happy to see the workloads picking up and hope that it will continue. With the government putting the brakes on the oil industry, it has certainly got people thinking about what impact this is going to have on our industry. The oil industry has been very quiet over the past 3 to 4 years and this new government initiative will definitely impact more on our businesses and the whole region over the next 10 years and onwards. On a more positive note, there still seems to be plenty of demand for new homes in the region with many of these being snapped up by people from outside the region. This is putting pressure on the existing home market, like it is in most other areas, with more renovation work being undertaken. This home renovation work is certainly picking up and giving the industry a boost and often includes other skills of the joinery trade other than kitchen work, which is a great opportunity to train staff on different facets of the joinery trade. Finding qualified staff continues to be an issue. Training numbers are not where they should be and need to increase drastically to address this continuing shortage of qualified workers. Unfortunately, this is a long-term issue and the sooner companies take on the challenge and train more staff the better it will be for the industry. We are all looking forward to a busy second half of the year with hopefully plenty of chances to train extra staff. – Rhys Powell WAIKATO / BAY OF PLENTY It’s been a hive of activity in our region this quarter with new builds and subdivisions popping up all over the place. Members are busy, with many order books

filling fast and the enquiry rate still relatively high for both new builds and renovations. The numbers of Aucklanders moving down our way appears to have slowed somewhat, however. Issues with freight and courier company deliveries reported by some members pre-Christmas seem to have settled down with the New Year. Looks like most of us will be keeping well occupied through the Winter to come. Let’s hope this year it’s a frosty one, not another wet winter like we had last year! Qualified tradesmen and apprentices are still being sought after. It’s good to see BCITO pushing a new initiative to attract apprentices - let's hope it’s successful and we get some keen young people interested in joining the industry. We recently held our AGM and the Waikato & Bay of Plenty Apprentice Awards on the same evening at WINTEC in Hamilton. It was good to see the awards well supported by apprentices and their families and once again the venue was great. Thanks to Bruce Delaney and Sonya Mackenzie for the integral parts they play in organising this event, also to Paul Ingram for his MC skills. It’s hard to believe the Master Joiners Conference & Awards in Auckland is just a few weeks away. There seems to be more and more members attending every year, with the Awards themselves hotly contended. It’s always good to hear how others deal with the topics that affect most of us; machinery breakdowns, staff shortages, workload stresses and the like. My wife and I were lucky enough to escape the office and workshop and head to Europe for a few weeks in April; combining visits to the Blum factories and EuroCucina in Milano with some R&R. We thoroughly enjoyed the company of fellow joiners from New Zealand, saw some incredible sights, ate and drank and walked a lot before heading home to reality! As we drove home from Auckland Airport, we imagined we were seeing New Zealand through the eyes of newly arrived tourists. We really do live in a beautiful country and after seeing so few animals grazing while away, we could understand why cars pull over to photograph stock in paddocks! Although we don’t have majestic cathedrals and ancient ruins, we do have nature’s own breathtaking scenery on these islands we call home - let’s enjoy and look after it! – David Higgins WAITAKI Seems to be a very busy start to the year with most firms reporting that they have 3-6 months’ workload ahead and most firms commenting

that they are pricing a lot more work at this stage of the year than most other years. No one seems to be having any real problems getting materials although one firm commented that some materials are slower than normal. He has spoken to the reps involved regarding this. All firms seem to be reporting that they are getting paid ok, however some have commented that they have a few slow payers like normal, but nothing to be worried about. All firms have reported stable staff levels with a couple saying that they have taken on new apprentices or tradesmen, or in one case a labourer also. Most comment that they would like more workers, but it is hard to find good tradesmen, so a couple are looking at doing more training. By all the comments that I have received everyone is busy with good amounts of work and the future looks busy with everyone reporting that they are doing lots of pricing and have good work prospects ahead. So, all in all, it looks like being another good busy year for all firms in the Waitaki area. – Warren Atwill WELLINGTON Wow! What a start to 2018 and I’m not just referring to the stunning weather we have been experiencing this Summer. It’s actually due to the fact I can’t remember the last time there was this much work pouring in at such an early stage of the year and it’s great to hear most of our local members are in the same position. With the continuous stream of work and pricing coming in the door and the additional fact that we have noticed people taking a preference to time frames rather than the price of their joinery needs, I suspect this is going to be one very busy year. After our first local meeting of the year it was noted that more of our members have resorted to taking on trainee staff hoping to move them into apprenticeships and in some cases already starting them in one. This is the best way I see our industry coping with the ever increasing work load and getting the staff we are so desperately in need of. With this increase in apprentices I hope to see some entries into the apprentice awards from some of our local joiners in the coming years at the Master Joiners conference.With the middle of the year now here, I look forward to getting together in Auckland for what I’m sure will be another great Master Joiners conference followed closely just a month later by the return to Sydney for AWISA 2018. – Jeremy Patmore 

Technical details in brief • Catch to screw on, adapter to clip on • Plastic • Catch disengages by lifting • Deactivated by sliding adapter aside • Colours match ArciTech & InnoTech Atira

Fewer reveals, easy access Catch for ArciTech and InnoTech Atira internal drawer The internal drawers are hidden from view when the front is closed, making it easy to create purist furniture design with fewer reveals. This is where the Hettich catch provides convenience geared to individual needs: when the pot-and-pan drawer is opened, the internal drawer automatically opens with it. Reliably, no matter what it contains.

Drawer contents frequently needed are ready to hand more quickly. And when usage habits change: simply slide the adapter aside and the automatic opener is deactivated. Installation is also easy: screw on catch, clip on adapter, done.

H& &S with Kathy Compliance

hazardous materials check When did you last check what hazardous materials you hold at work? Do you have a list? Are they stored correctly? As we found out at our Christchurch showroom recently, it’s easy to forget that WorkSafe say “it is mandatory to have a current safety data sheet for each of the hazardous substances in your workplace regardless of the quantity you hold.” We had an external safety audit and while we were pretty good, with just a few small areas needing some changes, our biggest fail was incorrect storage of hazardous materials and needing a couple of extra Safety Data Sheets (SDS). We did have Safety Data Sheets for most things – particularly the chemicals we use most (such as turps). But a couple of cleaning solvents had appeared in our small workshop and we’d never thought about getting a SDS when they were purchased. A small bottle of something used just once or twice is easy to forget. And in reality they’re unlikely to cause

a problem. But in a fire then such items can become very hazardous, particularly to someone trying to fight a fire. Which is one of the reasons WorkSafe insist you have a list and SDS to hand. Where else did we fail? We had spray paint stored with regular paint, which is apparently a nono (aerosols should be stored away from other material). Our LPG bottle for staff bbq’s wasn’t locked away safely. We had a chemical bath for cleaning glue tanks without appropriate signage (even though it was empty of chemicals.) And the SDSs in our emergency evacuation kit – you know, the kit containing a map of your building and SDSs that you grab when you leave in a hurry – didn’t exactly match the Safety Data Sheets stored on the server. Overall, we were happy to with the results because it showed we were generally compliant. But it was a timely reminder that things such as SDS records need checking regularly. A check only need take 15 minutes, and finding a SDS is as easy as pie online. Many suppliers will send these out when you first buy something. Date it – because you’re meant to get a new

one every five years and you’re sure to forget the date unless you write it down. So how about your workplace? Storing any paint? Edgebander glue? Or the solvent you use to clean your panels? Or the chemicals under the sink for cleaning the workshop? You need SDS for all of these, although there are a few exceptions. You don’t need Safety Data Sheets if “you hold a hazardous substance that is a consumer product to be used in quantities consistent with household use”. So you’re probably ok with the toilet duck and jif. But everything else needs to be safely stored with and the SDS “readily accessible”. WorkSafe define this as “capable of being accessed without difficulty in hard copy, electronic, or other form.”

Who should have access? Everyone who may need them, which in effect is everyone in your building. So don’t put them in a locked cupboard, or in a private folder on your PC or server. In our case we store them on a company server, and also in paper form in a folder near all the other safety details we need: crane certificates, strop testing certificates, biosecurity data for containers etc etc.. And we have a copy in the emergency kit. A very recently updated copy… We know one day someone official is going to walk in and expect to see our building WOF, or crane certificate, or something that not having will cause hassle. So we do our best to ensure we’re ready for that day. So should you. It needn’t take long and might save a heap of bother. Kathy from Jacks
