Jacob Wood- Glazing at Carpenter Oak


Joined Carpenter Oak: 2015

Interview with Jacob

  • What do you enjoy doing when not in glazing?

  • Bird watching with my partner, I go locally but I've been bird watching all over the place from the Hebrides to the Scilly Isles.
  • What sort of music do you enjoy listening to?

  • I really like reggae and ska and also some older stuff like The Beatles and The Kinks.
  • Best thing about working at Carpenter Oak?

  • The people, everyone is great and the atmosphere here is really nice.


I finished Sixth Form this summer and decided that I wanted to go into carpentry full time after having worked the last three summers with my Dad who is a carpenter. I worked with my Dad until Paul Williams from Carpenter Oak rang me up and said they needed some help with glazing. Tom then offered me a job and now I'm in glazing for the long run. I've just been on my first site with Carpenter Oak and my partner and I are expecting a baby later this year, so I'm enjoying settling into the job before the next adventure begins!
