David is passionate about working with timber. After completing a four year apprenticeship with Bristol and West Joinery he then went on to work with numerous cabinet makers and joinery shops learning the arts of his trade. After spending 14 years with LEG Bishop in Bristol David decided to strike out on his own. Since an early age he has been fascinated with the details of working with timber, citing some of his most unique ecclesiastical work undertaken in local churches as his most challenging.
Following historical craftsmen in ancient magnificent buildings, is a true testament to the value of timber over the centuries. Equally, a challenging staircase, however small or large, provides its own technical opportunities.
“One of the greatest pleasures for me now is working alongside my son, William, who seems to have inherited my passion for cabinet making and working with timber. Hopefully, he will continue to build on my strong reputation and in the footsteps of his grandfather and great-grandfather who were both carpenters and joiners.”
