Meet Joe Cordingley our Apprentice Cabinet Maker

Eager to learn and always looking to build his skillset, Joe shines in his role as Apprentice Cabinet Maker at My Fathers Heart. In the workshop, Joe can be found assembling furniture and putting the finishing touches on custom-built materials crafted from the finest materials. Think American black walnut, Burr oak, Ripple sycamore, ebony, chestnut and other premium timbers.

Let's meet Joe…

Hi Joe, when did you join the team?

I joined in August 2018 as an Apprentice Cabinet Maker. My role involves assembling furniture, operating machinery and fitting on site.

How would the team describe you?

I’m positive and approachable. I have to be in my role. But they’ll also say I’m determined, as I just can’t let things go unfinished.

Why would you recommend My Fathers Heart?

Because it’s very high quality. I’ve seen that since day one at the company, and you can see it in every finished project I’ve been involved in.

So, do you have a favourite project?

There’s been a few actually. One was a beautiful handmade kitchen with exotic granite worksurfaces and extensive white painted cabinets. I also enjoyed a recent bespoke Gaumont styled home cinema. Another one that stands out was a classic handmade kitchen with a Wolf range and Sub Zero fridge. They were good customers and it was nice to work on something different.

What about your days off, any hobbies?

Definitely skateboarding. That’s my number one hobby, so I’ll always grab my skateboard when the work is done and head to a skate park.
