09 November 2023
An apprentice who learned his craft as a teenager working in Halifax is celebrating the latest milestone for his furniture-making business.
Daniel Fitzpatrick started his joinery journey in Halifax as a 16-year-old apprentice, working for a local business for six years.
During this time, he enjoyed the trade so much he decided to cement his passion for it and start his own company.
Oak and Pine by Design was established in January 2000 and since then the company has grown from strength to strength.
Daniel's daughter, Ella, has followed in her father’s footsteps. She now works at Oak Kitchens and Oak and Pine By Design and runs the showroom on Leeds Road, Huddersfield.
Daniel said: “We are proud to call ourselves a family run company and celebrate our two year anniversary of getting the keys to our Leeds Road showroom.”
