Dave Millwater

Master Craftsman 

I developed my trade in the UK and studied at Brunel Technical College, Bristol where I received the John Makepeace award for Fine Craftsmanship.

During my career in the UK I was fortunate to work on projects such as the Altar for Bristol Cathedral, the British Museum and many Universities in Oxford, Cambridge and London.

After emigrating to New Zealand with my family in 2004 I started my own business in the Bay of Islands. Then after ten years, decided that Otago was where we wanted to settle so moved and renamed the business Wanaka Furniture Design.

Since then, I have been commissioned to design and make some beautiful pieces while also crafting bespoke kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms.
