Leeds furniture design company Dovetailors has promoted one of its cabinetmakers to head maker as it prepares to expand its commercial and ecclesiastical work in 2018.
Craig Dalziel joined Dovetailors as a trainee furniture maker after graduating from Leeds College of Art and Design. His new role will see him take a more strategic role in production planning and greater input in the design process.
Dovetailors’ Creative Director, David Wilson, said: “Craig’s talent and attention to detail has made his progression to head maker a natural step and the move will support expansion of the commercial and ecclesiastical elements of our business in 2018.
“His versatile skills in using traditional wood making techniques combined with computer assisted design technology results in wonderful pieces of high-quality furniture that are built to last.”
The company has also appointed Charlotte Fitzpatrick as trainee furniture maker as part of its growth plans. Charlotte is combining her time in the workshop with college studies.
David added: “Charlotte’s excellent CAD CAM skills and enthusiasm to learn new skills make her a real asset to the workshop team. She has a bright future ahead as a furniture maker and shows real creativity and skill in her work.
“We are pleased to have made these new appointments as we look ahead to 2018. All our staff share a commitment to craftsmanship and we look forward to further building on our reputation for designing and manufacturing high-quality and original furniture pieces and commercial wood components.”
