Carpentry & Joinery
As a qualified and highly skilled Joiner Richard is able to produce beautiful bespoke products using a blend of both modern and traditional manufacturing techniques. His attention to detail is refreshing and his versatility to work with all types of wood is a credit to him, along with this he is also a very competent and highly skilled on-site carpenter.
So what is the difference between a carpenter and joiner you may ask?
The difference is that a joiner usually makes the timber products that a carpenter fixes on-site, so for example a Joiner would make the doors, frame and windows for a new building, as traditionally joiners ‘join’ wood in a workshop. Whereas a carpenter would construct them on site, and they generally install the products made by a Joiner. Both are specialist skills for example a joiner may craft a beautiful staircase, but a carpenter would best placed to fit them. Similarly a carpenter may skilfully hang a door, but a joiner would make a superior quality door (as pictured below).
So at Mackleys you are getting both the specialisms of one craft, all under one roof.
