Our People

Nathan McCarter

Founder and Owner | Joiner

As the driving force behind Nathan McCarter Joinery, Tavistock born and bred Nathan has a strong background in fine furniture. With a full City & Guilds apprenticeship, he started his career as a talented furniture and cabinet maker and wood machinist with a very obvious eye for detail.

Using these skills to fine effect over the years, Nathan continues to strive for the best in his work and accepts nothing less. Putting his heart and soul into the business, his priority is to give every customer a unique service unavailable anywhere else and creating handcrafted windows and doors to match. 

Outside of the joinery business, Nathan is a big F1 fan, a keen amateur squash player, and an on-call firefighter with the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

Dan Gilbury

Production Manager | Machinist | Sprayer

Working with Nathan for over 10 years, Dan has played an important part in the success of Nathan McCarter Joinery and has been there to see the business go from strength to strength. With a full Level 2 Diploma in Bench Joinery, Dan’s knowledge and skill take every customer’s project from initial machining to the final finish before it leaves the workshop as a quality, handcrafted piece.

An enthusiastic darts man, Dan is keen to step up to the oche at every opportunity for a few sets of 501, but with two small children, those opportunities don’t come around as often as he’d like!

Tom Sherrell

Joiner and On-site Fitter

Having been with us for a number of years in different roles, Tom is now one of our experienced workshop joiners and on-site fitters. With a solid grounding in all our processes, Tom’s skills, knowledge, and understanding are essential in providing our customers with excellent service.

When he’s not joining or fitting with us, he’s kept busy at home with his two children, and enjoys cricket and catching up with friends – when he has time! Tom also joins Nathan in being an on-call firefighter with the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

Aidan Hall


Aidan initially joined us in 2019 to do work experience, but he impressed us so much he joined us on a full-time basis as a joiner in July 2020. He’s continuously learning and is going from strength to strength.

As a Liverpool FC fan, Aidan loves his sport and you’ll spot him either playing football or running to keep fit. But he also slows down a bit to enjoy relaxing walks with family and friends.

Felicity McCarter

Office Manager

Making sure Nathan McCarter Joinery runs smoothly, Felicity has been working behind the scenes in the business for over 10 years. Knowing the business inside out, Felicity is crucial to business development while overseeing all office administration, and is the key to our efficiency and organisation.

Outside the office, she’s Mum to Harry and enjoys the outdoors and long walks with Scruffy the dog and catching up with her BFFs. She’s also keen on doing a bit of gardening and hopes to one day get that veg patch started.

Katie Bolt

Office Administrator

Joining us in September 2020, Katie is our part-time office administrator. Giving essential support to Felicity, she also plays a key role in the day to day running of the office. She’ll also often be your first point of contact when you email, call, or visit us.

Katie’s partner, Dan, is our Production Manager and together they have two children. But when she’s not in the office, you’ll either find Katie working in the local shop or, if she ever manages to get any spare time, out enjoying the moors or at home honing her baking skills.
