MEET THE CRAFTSMAN

My name is Johan Nel. I’m the founder of Knysna Woodworkers and the primary craftsman, I have over 35 years of experience manufacturing all kinds of custom wooden furniture and other wood craft.

I love working with the various woods, whether an indigenous wood or exotic, and the passion I have for woodworking is reflected in everything I make.

(Notably, Johan has been featured numerous times in Timber iQ magazine, a top magazine in the field, showcasing “all about wood”.)
