Our Story



"In a world of throwaway, fast-moving goods, we're creating earthy, organic products that last.  But we've taken it a step further too!  Every handmade piece may be etched with a special message, corporate branding, or beautiful image. 

From our workshop to your place, ENJOY!"



 

The Lasercut Story 

Handling beautiful New Zealand timber is in our blood. Regan and Rochelle Davies, owners of Orang Otang Tree Trimmers in Mangawhai, New Zealand, have been managing trees in the Northland area with both respect and innovation since 2003.

The process of milling led to an idea of creating furniture. Initially, fine-looking bar leaners, tables and other items were designed, and while popular, they were bulky items to store onsite. The vision altered slightly, but the ethos never changed. How can we breathe new life into a product that might otherwise be thrown on the fire? Enter Lasercut Designs in 2018.

Fastforward to now, and the venture has been taken over by Denise and Martin Davies; yes we’re keeping it in the family!

Denise and Martin have been manufacturing wooden kitchen products and giftware, supplying tourist shops around NZ for the past 25 years. Known formerly as Smithlink and later WoodturNZ, they bring a wealth of knowledge, skill and creativity to Lasercut Designs and they look forward to continuing to grow the business, with an emphasis on quality and customer satisfaction.

 

"Lasercut Designs is about being resourceful. It’s about repurposing timber - etching creativity onto its surface and giving it a new home."


 

The journey of a tree once it hits our workshop has only just begun – it may transform into a chopping board, a company sign, or kiwiana souvenir. The options are endless. From our locally sourced timber, to the creation of products, to the lasering of the image, logo, or message - right through to dispatch, every step in the process is completed onsite. From a picturesque countryside address in northland, a talented team of changemakers are turning waste into art.
 

Our business is a generous one. It’s based on a belief that products should last. From everyday items with added character, personalised kiwi gifts, or customised signs – all of our creations are useful for everyday life, with minimal impact on the environment.


And we couldn’t be prouder.
