About Gwyn James Carpentry

I undertook my carpentry & joinery apprenticeship between 1986 - 1990 after becoming extremely interested in woodwork classes at school.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of carrying out a wide range of carpentry work in different parts of the UK ... Oxfordshire, Southampton, London, Cotswolds, North Devon and even North Wales for my relations.

I have spent 12 years (2003 - 2015) working for an Oxford University department as a Building Maintenance Officer where I was responsible for the maintenance & carpentry requirements.

I mainly specialise in internal carpentry jobs such as Stud partion walls, Door hanging, Kitchen fitting, Shelving and Bookcases but can also undertake external jobs such as installing garden Fence panels, Gates, Fascia boards and Guttering.
