Building bespoke, technically-challenging structures in wood for 20 years

If you need to commission a large or complex structure built in wood, you need to talk to Kiwanda Technical Wood Services. KTWS is the technical wood solutions arm of Kiwanda Woodworking and specialises in building complicated, multi-sided shapes in wood. Whether it’s for an icing wind tunnel testing structure or two-storey bookcase made of steel clad in veneer, KTWS will deliver on time, to an agreed price and with an outstanding level of craftsmanship where it matters most.

While it’s true that any decent carpenter should in theory be able to build what you want, why take any risk when budgets are at stake and when you can leverage KTWS’s 20 years’ experience in building and supplying University engineering departments and architects with bespoke, highly engineered wood constructions and structures?

With Kiwanda Technical Wood Services you get:

Cost-effective solutions as standard

We understand budget constraints and because of the way we make our commissions, we are reasonably priced for what we do. We always deliver on time and to budget and the quality of our finishes can be seen in our portfolio pieces.

Depth of experience in building for time-critical projects

We have significant experience in building icing wind tunnels testing structures but have also built and installed multiple bespoke high end shop fittings as well as other technically challenging projects involving glass, steel and wood. All needed to be delivered on time to allow other suppliers’ components to be installed and the project completed successfully.

An ability to successfully interpret even the sketchiest of designs

Because of our technical background we understand how to move from a basic concept sketch or the clean lines of an architects drawing, to a working solution for delivering a finished product, given the limitations of budget and manufacturing resources.

A skill set and resources that includes

  • Auto CAD 2D and 3D proficiency to City and Guild level
  • Solidworks modelling
  • Experience of building large structures
  • Connected to a manufacturing network that includes:
  • Metalwork, Precision Engineering and Plastics
  • Furniture making skills
  • Traditional joinery skills
  • Fully tooled up woodworking workshop
  • Access to CNC routing equipment
  • A willingness and ability to problem solve


Charlie and his team were brilliant. They were easy going and nice to work with … really helpful with technical and design advice while we developed ideas. They were fast, efficient and tidy and the level of workmanship which they produced was absolutely outstanding. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kiwanda.
