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

Office Manager

As Office Manager, Tom’s organisational skills are essential to keeping every Nathan McCarter Joinery project on track and on schedule. Coming from a background in management, he ensures all our plans and procedures are running smoothly, as he oversees business growth to take us forward.

As one of our loyal customers, Tom is your main point of contact for your project from start to finish. Keeping you informed at every stage, he can also arrange for you to visit the workshop to see your project being worked on.

Tom also joins Nathan in being an on-call firefighter with the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.
