“Dear Stuart and Jono

Thank you so much for organising and accommodating my four days work experience at Carpenter Oak.

Jono’s attentive guidance and teaching not only helped develop my woodworking skills and taught me the importance of precision, but also opened my eyes to the diverse world of design and construction. I now have some idea of the thought and rigorous planning that goes into construction that I would have otherwise taken for granted.Thank you so much for your time and teaching Jono, I learnt so much and really enjoyed my time in your brilliant workshop.

Thanks also to the friendly team at Carpenter Oak who offered me an interesting insight into what working in the oak-framed building industry entails. Everyone was very welcoming and made my week at Carpenter Oak even more enjoyable.

And finally thank you Stuart for giving me this enriching opportunity to, hopefully, set me on the path to becoming an architect.

Here is a photo of me enjoying my finished bench!”
