Creative Director, PUNCH INSIDE Interior Design (Residential and Commercial)
Saint John, NB
It has been my joy and privilege to work with Christoph for the last several years. Our projects together have included collaborations on kitchens, wall-units, bars, corporate and professional offices, to name just a few.
I have hired Christoph in two capacities: first (and principally) as a designer in my own company, PUNCH INSIDE, to execute designs I have created, and second, as a home-owner to build our own kitchen.
Christoph is a true cabinetmaker and a genuine craftsperson. His attention to detail is nothing short of astonishing. He takes his craft very seriously and the outcome tells a story of dedication. His ability to deliver on time and on budget is as consistent as the quality of his work.
Based on the dozen or so projects we’ve worked together, I can safely say that, in my view at least, CM Woodcraft – “European inspired. Canadian built” – is the very best company of its kind in the region.

I decided to use CM Woodcraft for a condo renovation I was working on. This was a very interesting project as we had very limited space and needed to increase the storage in the kitchen and have a modern design. Christoph was amazing to work with; I was very impressed with his hand drawings and the speed at which I received them. His innovative ideas for the use of normally unusable space was remarkable.
He was patient with my many questions, and accommodating when changes had to be made at the time of installation, because of a stove which was not a normal size - he was on site very quickly to find a solution to the problem. Also, his co-workers were very accommodating and polite – and everyone worked very well with my staff to get the job completed on time, and on budget.
Annette put the icing on the cake with her very sweet, diligent follow-up of the job. I would give them a very high recommendation to anyone needing their services.
I highly recommend CM Woodcraft. Christoph’s skill and creativity was just what I needed when it came time to renovate my small, quirky kitchen. Christoph brought the right combination of expertise, intuition and innovation to my project; providing the ideas and practical suggestions I was looking for. His craftsmanship was spot-on. Further, Christoph was easy to do business with. He did what he said he would, when he said he would, and at the price he quoted. He even gladly returned 12 months post-completion to make an adjustment at no charge. Now, a year and a half later, I am as happy with my kitchen as I was when it was first completed.

When we decided to renovate our house the kitchen was the key area we wanted to make as a center point for our living space. After looking through countless magazines and asking around we were directed to Christoph at CM Woodcraft. We had never heard of him or his work but after doing some research we decided to give him a call and have a meeting. We were very impressed with his willingness to listen to what our vision was and offer options based on what we wanted, not what he thought we wanted.
After a few decisions and changes we agreed on a final product. We were very pleased with the end result and the entire process of dealing with Christoph. The project was completed on time and on budget with no issues, which is rare, if not unheard of, in today’s construction and renovation market. Christoph and his staff were 100% professional throughout the project and we could not have made a better selection for our kitchen as well as entry and living room cabinets.
Christoph replaced our kitchen island, built and installed a fireplace mantel, new benches and a brand new desk in our kitchen area. We are very pleased and impressed with his professional design and work ethic. We highly recommend Christoph and CM Woodcraft for any type of woodwork!

Christoph came highly recommended by an acquaintance when we mentioned that we were going to be renovating our condominium. What we appreciated most about working with Christoph is his ability to make what seems to be impossible, possible. The service Christoph provides is top quality; he listened, understood our unique requirements, and was able to improvise when necessary. His commitment and passion about his work is his source of drive for excellence. Christoph’s acquaintance with various products and manufacturers makes him a great resource to bring fresh ideas to any project. When Christoph is finished at the end of the day, there is no trace left behind that any major construction work has been completed. He is extremely careful as he works, very conscientious about caring for his working environment. We would not hesitate to recommend Christoph for any job, large or small.

Right from consultation to completion of an entire kitchen/great room gut and reno CM Woodcraft was so helpful, patient, flexible and pleasant, not to mention perfectionist, all of which is so appreciated. We lived-in through the renovation which I’m sure was not always the most efficient nor convenient and I like to think I’m quite detail-oriented about this sort of thing which can drive some contractors nuts. Christoph and Anette were consistently patient and lovely to deal with and I think enjoyed seeing their work come together almost as much as we did. I had a design in mind that was a little out of the ordinary for an island with seating and storage and he made it work so well, I couldn’t be happier. Little touches like outlets and extra shelves were not just afterthoughts for him, but were well thought out and carefully executed. I’m proud to show off the full kitchen, cabinets, lighting, countertop and even some flooring help to everyone who comes in. I would highly recommend working with them, I’m already thinking of the next project.

I appreciate how patient Christoph is, to take the time to do things right, not to rush us or his work. His attention to detail, like lining up the outlets to hit under the counter exactly right, he thinks of everything.
Thank you so much for being great to work with and for doing great work for us. I love it.

Christoph and CM Woodcraft is an end-to-end manufacturer. Many things separate Christoph from others in the industry; his ability to build a strong working relationship with his clients, his breadth and depth of working experience and finally, his education in his craft is something worth keeping and growing in NB. Christoph is a master craftsman.
Christoph met with Gord and me at our building where he drew a conceptual plan for the front entrance and made recommendations for saving us money while accomplishing our goals. Moments into our discussion it was visible that Christoph had a skillset that clearly separated him from others in the ‘heritage restoration’ business.
I have and would continue to recommend CM Woodcraft to others, whether looking for heritage restoration or something new and modern – from a conceptual plan to a finished product.
