What I do
I am a second generation cabinet maker, inheriting the trade from my father who was a carpenter joiner. Apprenticed at 16, I was placed through the Youth Training Scheme with The London College of Furniture. Following 2 years’ study at Nescot, I achieved my NVQ level 3 in carpentry & joinery as the top student of the year in my course.
I worked for 7 years for Harman’s Antiques of Dorking, restoring and refurbishing a vast range of wooden antiques. I am now self-employed as a cabinet maker, continuing to restore furniture as well as designing and making bespoke pieces to commission.
