Steve’s Bio

Steve grew up on a cattle farm out in Zulu-land together with his two sisters and a brother. Horses and the great outdoors were a big part of his early childhood having left fond memories and skills. The family re-located to Pietermaritzburg in the early 70’s to another cattle farm, which became their home during the later schooling years. After matric he was called to do military service for two years on the boarders of the country.

Motorbikes still play a huge part in Steve’s life. During his teens he raced the local Enduro circuits for many seasons, also taking interest in other sports like running and paragliding.

The passion for timber started on his travels through Europe and America during the 80’s. He found work on the docks of Florida and California with Bob Henry, a local master boat builder. Together they worked hand in hand, being involved in all boat related timber works, such as decks and gunwales.

The more he honed his skills with wood the more his professional direction appeared. Back in South Africa the first job assignment was for doors and door frames, skirtings and a stairways. Nothing much!

However, through persistence and dedication the first business came alive…Kaljon Joinery, KZN in 1987. The company was later sold, but as life has it, today Kaljon is run by his son Tom, who joined the company in 2012. A wonderful turn of events.

Never leaving his passion for motorbikes, traveling and timber behind, some years went by. The work focus changed to include larger timber constructions and widening his knowledge and skills in the field. Today STJ Joinery is able to supply most timber construction requirements to its clientele.
