What is your role at Gaze Burvill?

I build the furniture once the pieces have been made – a kind of cabinet maker.

What is the best thing about working at Gaze Burvill?

The variety of different things i can make, and getting to see it from start to finish.

Probably to achieve the quality that’s expected – and maintaining it from the timber to the final product.

What is your most memorable moment since joining?

When I became fully qualified 19 years ago!

What makes you proud to work here?

It’s hard to pick – probably building something that is big, expensive and custom made to a customer.

I think the Spiral bench, I’ve been making them for years and I like that the most.
