Furniture Maker/Designer, Carpenter/Joiner, in Dundee, United Kingdom
Back when I was 14 years old, I had to make a decision at school for my Practical Studies. The choice I was given was either Metalwork or Woodwork, so I chose Metalwo... no I never, I chose Woodwork! So just a few years later at 16 years old I began my Furniture-Making apprenticeship at a famous Cabinet-Makers in Lochee, Dundee.
After the apprenticeship was over I quickly became self employed, and travelled the UK as a Shop-Fitter visiting and fitting out numerous kitchen and clothing stores. Then after a few years working in Holland as a Furniture-Maker/Luxury Boat Builder I returned to Dundee to erect the many new build houses that were expanding at the time.
Now for the last 14 years I'm happily a one man band small business mainly serving the local domestic area in carpentry and joinery, and with infrequent commission requests to make furniture.
