Meet Tim Birtles our Workshop Manager

The my fathers heart team is motivated, dynamic, talented and, without exception, each team member takes great pride in their work. Some have a high level of expertise and some are just starting on their journey—but they stand united by a love of what they do.

The heart of any good bespoke cabinet and furniture making company is the workshop and my fathers heart is no exception. Our Workshop Manager, Tim Birtles, is the man responsible for leading and managing our team of craftsmen, making sure things run smoothly and ensuring the accuracy and the quality of all our projects.

He joined my fathers heart over 20 years ago and is a highly respected member of the team.

Let’s meet Tim…

Hi Tim, how long have you been working for my fathers heart?

I joined the company in October 1998. Over the years I have worked my way up to Workshop Manager and I now manage a team of 8 talented craftsmen.

Can you describe what you do?

I am responsible for the planning of upcoming projects, ordering materials, supervising ongoing projects and ensuring the quality control of finished jobs.

What’s your favourite hobby?

I love scuba diving and try and go diving as often as possible, whether that’s in the UK or warmer waters abroad. I also enjoy going motorcycling with my daughter.

Do you have a favourite project that you have worked on?

I am proud of every single finished product we produce here so it’s hard to pick a favourite. A recent project I really enjoyed working on was a home cinema for a customer in Sheffield. We were commissioned to design and build an Art Deco style refreshment station and arcade machine for the ‘foyer’ of the cinema. We used beautiful materials and the finished result looked fantastic.

What you would you say makes my fathers heart stand out from its competitors?

I would have to say it’s our skilled craftsmen who are truly passionate about what we do. We only use the highest quality materials and all our bespoke pieces of furniture are finished to an impeccable, unrivalled standard.
