Dean & Robyn Millar

We were pleased we made the choice to use John & Ainslie at Cutit Joinery for our new laundry units. They were professional to deal with and provided a rapid turnaround from design to supply, the result was a well-constructed, detailed piece of cabinetry made to our specifications. We would highly recommend their services.

Cut It was easy to work with in design and production of my kitchen. I received sound advice throughout which streamlined efficiency of the work area and did not cost me extra. An excellent selection of combinations and accessories was available to me. John was open and his workmanship professional.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and have a great kitchen!


I have done 4 kitchens with Cut It over the last 8 years and am thrilled to bits with each one of them. Ainslie and John are both easy to work with and have very high standards of workmanship and customer service. Ainslie and the team do a great job in the design phase and translating my ideas into workable plans, as well as sourcing specific items to fit each kitchen. John and his team have extremely high standards and everything in the kitchens looks fantastic, and equally importantly, works perfectly. We would thoroughly recommend them to anybody looking for a new/remodelled kitchen.

I have utilised the services of John over the past year and found his work and attitude to be excellent. His work was done to the very highest standard and involved some very helpful and aesthetic design work, we still get favourable comments from our customers. He carried out the work quickly and at a very reasonable price. I have no hesitation recommending his services and would use him again if the need arose.
