MEET TOM OF TW CARPENTRY

Where He Works

COMPANY
TW Carpentry
FOUNDER
Tom Weaver
LOCATION
Newport, South Wales


Tom has been mastering the art of woodworking since he was a child learning the secrets of the industry from his father and uncle. He spent years travel
ing around Europe building timber-framed houses and working on a large variety of construction projects.


"One of my parents’ earliest memories of me was Dad working on a roof, it was at home and I wasn’t even a year old and I was climbing up the ladder."

He was taught to understand all aspects of the building process so he could understand how each trade works with each other. Carpentry isn’t just a trade to Tom; it is a lifestyle which he loves, and he will continue to learn new techniques.

"I’ve always been on a building site, it’s not just my career, it’s my lifestyle."

Tom has worked on projects which have had to involve some out of the box strategies, like lifting an end-terrace roof off in one and replacing it with premade trusses.


"I’ve built anything from brand new houses to renovating houses to handcrafted bay windows. I think it’s really nice to drive around a town you have worked in and drive passed something that you know is going to stand the test of time."

 

Tom has worked in construction his whole life and it is something he enjoys with great passion every day.



"I love what I do, I think there are so many people in the world today that go to bed on a Sunday night dreading their week ahead and I’m so fortunate that I’m one of the people who goes to bed excited, I can’t wait to go up on Monday and go to work. It’s not just a job it’s a passion and I wouldn’t want to do anything else."
