Biography
I studied and worked as an aerospace engineer, namely on supersonic air intakes for the never to happen Concorde replacement. I then worked as a school teacher before getting the carpentry bug on a voluntary course just outside Bristol in 1996. I joined Carpenter Oak Ltd in 1999 as a carpenter and now spend most of my time designing frames and supporting the company’s computers, but still get the chance to dust off my tools a few times a year. So thanks for looking at our site, and should you commission us to design and build a frame for you, I look forward to being part of the process!
