Rare Wood Trophy bases

For the finest in rare wood trophy bases contact the experts. We have been creating rare wood trophy bases for over 20 years. We can accommodate large orders and small runs.
Hassiem is running fine wood craft with his team. Some off the staff have been employed by fine wood craft for over 15 years and bring with them a host off experience.

The spraying and finishing department complements the production department. Spraying in itself is an art and here they create the perfect finish to wood. The spraying department can handle large runs and you are welcome to bring your small projects to them for a professional finish. Supa-wood or MDF spray just as well as rare wood.

Some projects we have completed recently are holders for TV remotes made from 6mm MDF and sprayed in a dark brown. The finish on these was made to our normal high standards to compliment your lounge furniture. TV remote control boxes can be ordered via the contact form. You won’t need to look for the remote again.

Fine wood craft was situated in Elsies River for many years. Due to the high rate of crime in the area it was moved to Brackenfell Industrial. From Brackenfell it moved to Phillipi after being purchased by Hassiem, Where it is situated today.

Wooden Clocks for Government …

Fine Wood Craft has a new accolade to brag about … clocks made from African Mahogany (a hard indigenous rare wood with a beautiful red flame) were ordered by the Parliament of South African as exclusive gifts given in recognition of years of service to a number of its employees.  The clocks are mounted on a bevel base made of the same wood, and decorated with the South African Coat of Arms, and a name plate inscribed with the dates of service.

Fine Wood Craft has a history of creating exclusive items for special occasions; presentation cases for medals and trophies, personalised jewelry boxes, chess boards made from rare indigenous woods (with space for the chess pieces under the board), wine / champagne presentation boxes with space for glasses, personalised printer’s trays … the list just goes on and on.

If you are looking for a specialist wood craft manufacturer to solidify your dreams into any of South Africa’s beautiful woods, you have come to the right place.  With more than 18 years experience, a team of dedicated craftsmen and attention to detail we can create that special piece for you at a very reasonable price.

Besides making memorable once-off pieces, Fine Wood Craft also has a long history with the trophy and award industry, and makes trophy bases and plaques for the national trophy wholesalers.  They have recently ventured into the high-end point of sale display arena, with great success, and now supplies a number of national retail chains with display cabinets for exclusive product launches.

Fine Wood Craft will craft any wooden product you might have in mind, but can also produce artifacts in SupaWood, which can be spray painted to look like Aluminium or Chinese Red Lacquer or … well, the list is endless.  Any colour or finish you desire can be created, so give us a call and be prepared to be amazed!

A new addition to the Cape Craft Services Stable!

 Cape Craft ServicesFine Wood Craft









And here is the reason we have been quiet for a month or two … A brand new addition to the Cape Craft Services family!  Those of you in the know will of course be aware that Fine Wood Craft is no newcomer to the trophy/award industry in South Africa, and has been operating in Cape Town since its inception in 1992.

Besides providing trophy bases and plaques in various woods (or Supawood spray-paited any colour you desire) and in any size you require, Fine Wood Craft also custom-makes any wooden item you might need, inclusing mortar & pestles, gavels for the legal fraternity, crosses, or urns for the last remains of a loved one.  If you can think it, we can most likely make it.

Look at a few of the more intricate products Fine Wood Craft have made in the last while:

and the contact person is Howard van der Westhuizen, who will assist you with quotes and orders.

Speaking of trophies, now is a good time to remind sports institutions, schools and other groups that award performers at the end of the year with trophies and other memorabilia that the year has nearly reached the half way mark.  While the persons who will be receiving trophies and plaques and medals might not yet be known, now is a good time to contact Cape Craft Services to start designing and making your specialised and unique trophies.  We have found in years past that everyone wants their trophies made at about the same time, and while we have not yet had to disappoint anyone in years past, each year the deadlines become tighter and tighter.  We encourage you to call us on 087 807 8131, or email us on howard@capecraft.co.za with your trophy requirements.  You are welcome to use that address for any queries around laser cutting and engraving, trophies, medals/name tags or vinyl signage.  We will be happy to assist you with anything you need to know, and any quote you require.

Another something that the teams at Cape Craft Services and Fine Wood Craft have been keeping themselves busy with, is dabbling in web hosting.  It started primarily as an inhouse function to the operating divisions, but so many clients have asked where they can get quality hosting at a reasonable price, that we have decided to provide this service as well.  The division is known as WebConcept, and is run by Howard van der Westhuizen.  As a LAUNCH OFFER, we offer to better your current hosting fee, or any written hosting quote by 25%.  WebConcept prides itself as a World-class Value for Money hosting provider, and we look forward to providing you with superior service and value.  Click on the banner below to find out how we can help you, or call us on 087 807 8131.
