The Wooden Jacket was created by a fourth-generation Canterbury carpenter. It takes its name from an old colloquial term for coffins, as its primary product is handcrafted, wooden coffins. However, The Wooden Jacket has an expansive range of creations as well as services it can provide. If you can dream it, The Wooden Jacket can make it. Boats, fences, furniture, houses and everything in between.


The nostalgia in the name, evokes memories of a time when products were made by hand, locally, and of a quality to last forever. These values underpin The Wooden Jacket and ensure that every creation is unique and made well by a local family business.
