I'm a fully qualified carpenter and joiner and have always been interested in working with wood, I remember when i was young shaping a small branch into a spoon using the pavement as sandpaper. I like the whole process from design to completion, and have great joy from teaching on the short courses at CAT.
Using sustainable materials is important to me as well as reusing, especially if you can use it as something completely different.
Wood is such a wonderful material, every day i find you can use it in a different way, that is what makes it exiting to work with. I work to commission, design and build, (the more unusual the better) using traditional and modern techniques.
