After leaving school, I started my career at a local building company. I completed a multi trades course at college for a year and decided that carpentry was my passion.

I then gained a four year apprenticeship with an organ building company, training in all aspects of church organ building. After my apprenticeship, I chose to further my skills in the cabinet making side of the company.

After about nine years with the organ builders, a local furniture retail company wanted to move in to producing their own furniture, and I set up and ran their workshop for them.

With five years under my belt running the furniture workshop, in 2004 I then felt I wanted to set up my own business.

To date I have had many varied customer requests, including a tortoise flap in a summer house for a tortoise breeder, a corner trophy cabinet for a local golf club, repairing cupboards doors in a motor home and even an under stairs cupboard with a secret door!

But since I started my business in 2004, I haven’t looked back and still really enjoy what I do and the interesting people I meet.

With a well-equipped workshop, I am able to offer anything from a one meter run of wood moulding, through to a fully fitted, handmade kitchen.
