Interview with Jean-Baptist

  • What is the best project you have worked on and why?

  • What is the most embarassing job you have ever had?

  • When not in the yard, what do you enjoy doing?

  • Running, DIY, skiing.


I trained as a carpenter in France as a Journeyman for five years, applied for a job in England and arrived at Carpenter Oak with a one year contract.  Over a decade on, I'm still here.  I love Devon, live next to Dartmoor and wouldn’t go back to France for all the money in the world.
