Jenny Angehrn, Lakeside, Email

" Hi Shaun, I just had to let you know how delighted and thrilled I am with my new desk. Although newly made, the way you have put it together has given it has that rustic cottagey look, which I love. You are more than welcome to use my name if you ever need a referral. And should I ever need another piece of furniture in the future, I will contact you once again. Good luck, and I hope your website brings you lots more orders. Best wishes to you and your family over the festive season. Many thanks and kind regards"

Mary, Newlands, WC

"Having served with Shaun in the Navy many years ago, I have always known and admired his thorough, analytical approach alongside his professional and courteous demeanor. It has been a pleasure to watch him apply these traits to his furniture making business, and most importantly to each work of art he crafts. I am very fortunate to own a very spectacular piece of his artwork, and it sits prominently in my dining room. A true showpiece. And, what I know that makes his work so incredibly special is the passion he places into each one with a true commitment to serving the customer. "


Kathy and Dan, Saldanha, WC

"Making up our minds on the look of our new bed took longer than the actual construction.  The pencil post design was an easy choice, but the head board was another matter.  Living on the Saldanha harbour, we have awesome sunsets and sun rises. We also frequently see dolphins swimming by.  We wanted a headboard that reflected our surroundings.  Shaun, leaving nothing to chance, patiently helped us to design the perfect bed for our home.  We gave him artistic liberty with the wood selection and were very pleased with the results.  We love our Dolphin Bed."


Linda, Hermanus, WC

"I want to let you know how beautiful the Paschal Candle stand is. This past Sunday was All Saints Day and the Pastor did a special blessing to dedicate it and we lit it for the first time. It will always be next to the baptismal font. It is simply lovely and we are so happy with it. Thank you again for your very special work and for doing this in memory of my mother."

Bethanne, Strand, WC

"The Paschal candle stand is more than I ever expected.  It was a true joy to work with you.  You completely understood what the family had wanted.  You have such a God-given gift in your artistry.  You were able to take my descriptions and basic design plans via e-mail communication and turn it into a beautiful work of art. This piece will be cherished in my congregation for years to come.  I thank God that He directed my internet search to your website.  We could not have received such a beautiful gift in memory of both of my parents anywhere else.  Thank you again for sharing your gift with us in the form of this beautiful Paschal Candle stand."


John, Porterville, WC

"My name is John and I live in the Porterville WC area. I wanted a post office bank made for my granddaughter. I purchased the brass door on Gumtree and found Shaun’s website on the internet and called him. I have never met Andy to this day. He agreed to build it for me and I mailed the hardware. I trusted him. I received the bank via mail and it is a beautiful walnut and cherry box with dovetail joints. My granddaughter Cassidy will love it. Thanks Shaun"


Sandra, Marmesbury, WC

"Just about one year ago ... my favorite tree near the end of our lane ... a very large persimmon ... we had a very windy day and down came my tree. I was so upset that my "Wizard of Oz tree" was gone forever. But then we thought, why not make a piece of furniture out of it. That way, it could be enjoyed for years to come.  We called Andy ... we decided to have him mill it ... it was the most beautiful wood. We ended up with a very large, beautiful bookcase with drawers. Not just any bookcase, but one that was designed by Shaun, my husband and I, which made it even more special. This bookcase had curves, bends and all sorts of angles. Any time we would go by his shop to check on the progress, we were always impressed by what had been done and how eager he was to show what would be next. It was so easy to work with him. We also enjoyed reading all the updates on Shaun's website 'Works in Progress'. In less than a year, my tree had been milled, dried, and made into a most spectacular piece of furniture. Shaun's work is meticulous, precise, and there was special attention to even the smallest detail. We look forward to working with him again."


Jones, Montaqu Gardens, WC

"I have three pieces by Mr. Kriel and each one is magnificent in it's workmanship, but to me the creativity shown in the design makes each an unsurpassed work of art. Please feel free to call for a personal reference.  804 435 6864"


George and April, Kirstenbosch, WC

"From concept to design, Andy was extremely helpful in guiding the process. His extensive knowledge of the art of furniture design was invaluable. Part of the design is finding the correct wood species to achieve the desired outcome. Shaun was anxious to show us the actual lumber, from his large selection of locally harvested logs.  We learned that shaun's primary source of material is from the Northern forest Knysna. Shaun ages all of his lumber. When building a piece Shaun knows the wood and its history very well. A great design is only as good as the furniture maker. Shaun's craftsmanship must be seen to be appreciated. If "fit and finish" are important aspects of your piece, then you owe it to yourself to consider Shaun Kriel when you consider your next furniture acquisition."


Micki, Stilbaai, WC

We had a concept of what we wanted and presented it to a well-known retail company that says they can custom make furniture and to Shaun Kriels.  In the time the other company took to respond that they could not meet our specifications and to present us with an unattractive (boxy) version of their regular line of cabinet, Shaun gave us three totally different designs.  We worked together with Shaun, refining on of the designs and ended up with a cabinet that is a real work of art -- better than we ever expected!We are truly enjoying it!!"


Amy, Piketberg, WC

"I just had to tell you how much I love our matching nightstands. I am very upset that I have to put anything on top of them. I just want to look at the cherry and red oak that you so carefully chose and put together. They go together beautifully. Thanks again for such beautiful pieces of art."

Lorri, Morreesburg, WC

Ann, Paarl, WC

"I just want you to know how absolutely pleased we are with your wonderful work.  Not only do we love my great-grandfather's chestnut in the coffee table, but our functional but very weathered dining table looks spectacular with its new veneer.  It's beautiful and like new. Thanks for all the effort and amazing craftsmanship and design."

Sara, Stellenbosch, WC

"I appreciate your guidance to make it a piece that I will treasure for years... Thanks for your professionalism throughout the process. My husband and I are very pleased with the table and impressed with how smooth the finish is...... We are enjoying watching it get darker and gain character as it ages. My other furniture just sits there... no fun to watch it... it will just get old and worn out...not gain character like yours will."

Eliot, Worchester, WC

"I will never be able to express my surprise at receiving one of your pieces of art, and that is really what my "File Cabinet" is called .... each time I think of your effort and [my husband's] plan, tears come to me .... Thank you, Shaun, for the joy of your talent ...."
