Abingdon Marine Carpentry
I have been working with wood for 21 years and working in the boatbuilding industry for over 10 years. I have worked on many projects from ships like the Cutty sark, HMS warrior and HMS victory to smaller privately owned yachts, launches and dinghy’s. I have built several small boats, been involved in larger new builds and undertaken repairs of all kinds on clinker, plywood, strip plank and carvel planked boats. I have fitted engines and made many spars and masts. I have also undertaken interesting carpentry jobs such as carvings for Knole house, a suspended tree house and timber items for TV set design. I have a personal interest in wooden boats and I am passionate about clever engineering and good aesthetics.
