About Us

Kamil Woodcraft is a furniture manufacturing company specialising in hand carved reproductions of antique style furniture. It is owned and managed by Kamil H. Karam, who moved to South Africa in 1976. Prior to that, he was educated in a school specialising in the manufacturing, carving and design of furniture in Lebanon. He then worked in a furniture factory as a foreman whilst also doing freelance design and manufacturing.

Kamil Woodcraft was started in 1980 but not on the scale it is operating on today. Kamil felt he needed to express his creativity, as well as design his own furniture without having any restrictions placed on him, which led to him starting out on his own in a small woodworking shop. He found it extremely satisfying being able to design his own line of hand-crafted furniture- at last he could fulfill his ambition of doing design as well as creatively using his hands. Since then, he believes by the grace of God, his business has expanded from a one man show to a medium sized factory.

Kamil Woodcraft produces an excellent, specialised range of antique styled furniture manufactured out of imported Yugoslavian Beechwood. It is designed and hand carved by trained and highly skilled artisans - from both foreign and local origin. Kamil feels that the qualities of imported Beechwood are the best suited for hand carved furniture, it can also be stained to any colour from natural to Imbuia, Cherry, Oak and Yew or lime-washed chalk pink, burgundy or turquoise.Kamil Woodcraft will also design and manufacture furniture to their customers exact specifications and requirements.
