Meet the team
Brief synopsis of experience: At the age of 16 my dad told me “get a trade son” which led me into the world of joinery. I qualified as a cabinetmaker, which is where I learnt precision and quality. From then I trained as a bench joiner also learning skills in workshop management. Being a perfectionist I made the decision to open my own company where I would be in control of the quality and products leaving the workshop. That was over 7 years ago now and although it is hard work, it is worth it to hear great feedback from happy customers. I’m proud of what we produce.
