New News: Staff
by Sam Shaw
Phew it’s been a busy few months we haven’t had chance to catch our collective breaths never mind sit down and blog apologies for our mute ways! Anyway the good news is that everything is moving on well at it woodwork, we now have a permanent workshop manager Jake Shaw, a trained joiner of over 10yrs who learnt his trade with a bespoke furniture company in London. Jake is brother of Sam (Director) and Jack (bench joiner) and will be taking charge of all our build and letting Sam concentrate on working up bespoke kitchen designs with clients and keeping things generally ticking over in the bespoke joinery / handmade kitchen world.
Bucking the trend of employing staff members from the talented Shaw clan (you wouldn’t believe how many of them there are we are talking more than football team numbers) this month we will also be welcoming James Matthews, former employer of Clifton Joinery, James will be it woodworks wood finisher.Rhys is still working with us as 1-2 days a week and collaborating with it woodwork on our fine furniture commissions. We have also started woking with Trish; experienced painter previously of cotswold collections kitchens. Trish brings to it woodwork a vast amount of experience and expertise we are delighted that our kitchens and bespoke joinery projects will now have a painted finish second to none.
Finally just to mention fellow Director Charlie is ever busy running our installation team, keeping our clients across Bristol, Bath and recently the Cotswolds happy, as well as performing magic in our developing showroom which we hope to be open in the New Year.
That’s about it for our staff inventory – apart from Steve, the workshop dog who has recently developed a twitter habit (@itwoodwork).
