Leo started his career as an apprentice furniture maker under the tuition of his father Colin Kerr, a skilled and highly respected master craftsman in his own right. During this time Leo learnt many skills including furniture restoration, bespoke furniture making, and fine carpentry work. Leo later went on to work for a joinery and construction company in order to broaden his skills and abilities.
In 2014 Leo established ‘Kerr Carpentry’ from his custom built gallery and workshop in Burray. Work carried out ranged from Bespoke Furniture Making, to Specialist Joinery and Property Work. Leo wanted to create a company that could combine and offer skilled craftmanship and attention to detail, with high quality and a personalised service for customers.
Leo has now gone on to develop and grow the business to include a team of highly skilled craftsmen and trusted sub-contractors. Kerr Carpentry can now offer a complete building service from plans to completion!
In 2016 Leo was proud to be recognised his high quality service and craftsmanship by ‘The Guild of Master Craftsmen’. In more recent years Kerr Carpentry have also been gifted accolades and awards from ’Skills Development Scotland’ and ‘CITB‘ for its efforts and for teaching and training up young apprentices.
