I’m Phil de Paolo and I have been working with wood for more than 40 years. 


Working as a carpenter and joiner I put my skills to use on a variety of projects including handmade kitchens, furniture, doors and windows. 


More recently I spent 13 years living and working in France where my clients provided me with an even greater range of challenging projects. 


Having now returned to the UK I am now finishing the building work on my house, working on small projects on a part-time basis and developing my skills as a woodturner. 


I am also exploring other ideas using wood in both its green and dry states and have an interest in making small pieces of furniture which I plan to develop further
