Interview with Paul Slemmings

What is the best project you have worked on and why?
Westonbirt Arboretum Restaurant, interesting shape and lots of folk get to see it.

Who do others think you look like?
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

What music are you currently listening to in the workshop?
Captain Beefheart – Clear Spot.

When not in the yard what do you enjoy doing?
Playing mandolin, cycling and scuba diving.

I studied and worked as an aerospace engineer, namely on supersonic air intakes for the never to happen Concorde replacement. I then worked as a school teacher before getting the carpentry bug on a voluntary course just outside Bristol in 1996. I joined Carpenter Oak Ltd in 1999 as a carpenter and now spend most of my time designing frames and supporting the company’s computers, but still get the chance to dust off my tools a few times a year. So thanks for looking at our site, and should you commission us to design and build a frame for you, I look forward to being part of the process!
