How I got into joinery

What kind of a person does it take to be a successful joiner?  Is it difficult to find apprenticeships?  And what’s the job really like? 

Hear from some current and recently-qualified joiners working for British Woodworking Federation member companies. 

Tom McKillop – "I wanted to be part of a team…"

Corey Matthews-Turner – "The best thing about joinery is seeing the whole job through…"

Luke Parry – "You are responsible for your own success…"

Adam Smyth – "You transform timber…"

Alice Kreuzburg-"Expanding-horizons…"
