My name is Richard and I operate my own carpentry & joinery business under the name of "Oakleaf". Anything you need that can be made of wood eg: furniture, decking, pergolas,doors, windows. I will be pleased to quote for. What started as a hobby 8 years ago has now turned into a small business.

About Oakleaf

I have had a varied work history from engineering to long distance artic driving. I actually trained years ago as a vehicle mechanic, for which I hold City & Guilds 1 & 2. I took up woodturning about 10 years ago, and then moved on to furniture making and carpentry. I have my own fully equipped workshop and have made all types of furniture and doors. I have found that my engineering background has been very useful in my woodworking. I take a pride in my work and will not take second best.


I have no formal paper qualifications in woodworking, but have had 10 years experience in making furniture, woodturning and general carpentry/joinery.
