I can't help Rob, but have you tried ringing Midway Nursery at Rangiriri? They'll probably be able to give you the name and number, I imagine they are nearby :D

Rob - depending on what type of wooden furniture you are after, someone has opened a new (maybe them) or updated a business in one of the last urban houses on the road that goes past the Pukekohe Hosptal out towards Fiskens/Tuakau. Clear as mud?

It is the older style - at least the chairs out the front are but maybe it is worth a look? Can't help with your original question.

Hi Rob, the Midway Nursey has moved to the Gordonton Road area.
Phone the Rangirir Pub, 826 3647. The Furniture shop is still there, has been on the market for a while.

Was that the place on the Rangiriri main st? Had lots of wood furniture - a lot of it imported from Asia & also did home-made chocolate & confectionary. I've been in there a couple of times, but not recently... Handmade Rangiriri, 10 Austen St.

We had tea at the Rangiriri pub last week and it was still there Rob :D , but they are trying to sell it. Am not aware of imported furniture being sold there, have only ever seen locally made stuff.

As far as I am aware Rob(but have been known to be wrong before[:I]), it is local, made from Kauri, rimu ect...Have two small items made from rimu, a fruit bowl and hot plate. :) I really liked one of their large dinning tables and chairs, but we have a 'timber' house.[}:)]
Cool coffee tables, they have filled holes in the swamp kauri with resin inlaying starfish and other thingys.
Haven't been thru there for over a year or so, things may have changed:rolleyes:

They did have the solid handmade stuff as well. But when I actually talked to the owners about where some of it came from I was quite surprised. I really liked one of the desk type things, It had a lot of small draws & shelves - it turned out to be from China! That was some years ago though...
