London Carpenter & Joiner

About Us

London based Carpenter & Joiner, Wood Carver and Wood Turner with over twenty-five years experience, Woodenyou combine a sound knowledge of traditional techniques with modern innovations and design concepts.
Mark grew up in a rural community on Exmoor where traditional crafts ranging from metalworking to thatching and pottery are being kept alive by the next generation. He is enthusiastic about keeping wood working alive and vibrant in the 21st century by combining traditional techniques with modern innovations and design concepts.
In the days of the mediaeval guilds right up to the beginning of the 20th century, craftsmen in wood served a seven year apprenticeship with a master, qualifying them in every aspect of woodwork from constructing the roof of the Sistine Chapel (and countless church roofs closer to home), right down to the floor and construction under the floor!

Today few are competent to undertake such a range of work.

Mark however is grateful to Roger and others for the discipline of a thorough modern apprenticeship enabling him to establish his company on firm foundations.
