Joined Carpenter Oak: 2020

Interview with Chris Loughran

What do you enjoy most about working at Carpenter Oak?

The satisfaction of a well made joint.

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

Whitewater kayaking and mountain biking.

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

Coad – first job I saw through from start to finish. And the client was a fellow Irishman

Who would be in your dream carpentry team?

Alan Wood because he could build a boat and I bet he’d have rum, Jono because I suspect he could fashion an engine out of anything for said boat and Dunstan to keep the heavy drum and bass going while I smash the rum and wait for Alan and Jono to get me home.

What music do you listen to in the workshop?

I listen to everything – classic rock, reggae, drum and bass, deep house, classical, whatever Spotify brings up.

Favourite quote?

‘Try harder, be better.’ – Chris Loughran, 2020

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Floating over the lip of a 70ft waterfall in my kayak, can’t beat it.
