Recently, The Winners Group contacted us with a request to craft sixteen trophies for an upcoming awards ceremony in Franschhoek.  The client wanted the trophies to be made from wood, to be rustic and to be a true representation and reflection of the Cape Winelands.

Nothing says Cape Winelands quite like an oak wine barrel, and we settled on an oak shield with a laser-engraved design of the front end of a wine barrel resting on a wood mount.  The names of the winners were engraved on the foot piece the shield was mounted on.

Silver is for second place.  

This year, winners will be accoutred in the warm, luscious gold of oak, complemented by exquisite fine engraving and a rustic finish resembling the warm earthiness the Cape Winelands is known for.

We are mighty proud of the end products we delivered!  We congratulate all the winners who will be receiving these awards, and trust that these trophies will all find a special place in their homes or offices.


At Hawequas Wood we take exceptional pride in the products we craft.  Only the best is good enough for us, and we will always endeavor to deliver on your dream.  Contact us today to discuss your next wood project, and let’s start making magic together!
