I left school in 1990 and went straight into Wood Work and into a 3 year City and Guilds apprenticeship in Purpose Made Joinery with R.J Ward Joinery of Lydney, gaining my level two and then later level 3 City and Guilds of Advanced Craft.
I remained at R.J Ward Joinery for 17 years where my knowledge and experience of manufacturing a wide range of timber products grew.
In 2006 aged 32 I felt like a new challenge.
Working out of my Van I started off fitting kitchens and doing high end site Installations which took me around the country, missing the workshop life some what, in the summer of 2008, I had a chance opportunity to move into Workshop in Blakeney.
I started on my own and with already a good client base which I had built over the few years, my business started to grow and grow. After a year or so I had to take on extra labour to help with the increase in workload. I knew I couldn’t manage on my own and also knew I couldn’t just get anyone in to help, a friend Paul who I had worked with previously approached me and the theme continued.
