Welcome to my site. I hope that it gives you a quick idea of the sort of work that I do.
I have been a carpenter for twenty years. I am now based in East Dulwich and do a lot of jobs locally but continue to work for existing and new clients across the whole of Central London.
I began my career working for friends and family. At first I turned my hand to anything that was required but quickly developed a passion for carpentry.
After a few years of learning by experience I took a City & Guilds course at London Guildhall University where I was taught about both traditional and modern woodworking skills - everything from handmade dovetail joints to computerised cutting machines.
This gave me much greater confidence and over the years I've been involved in a fascinating variety of projects. I usually work on my own but often form part of a team with other trades.
I am particularly interested in accuracy and attention to detail. I don't think it matters if I'm putting up a single shelf or creating a built in library, each deserves to be done to the highest standard.
I believe that this is the only way to get real value for money. I cannot walk away from a job until I know I have completed it to the best of my ability.
