A Pembrokeshire College Carpentry student has been presented with a set of specialist tools worth £400 from Dyfed Training Group (DTG).
Level 3 CITB apprenticeship student, Chris Caine is sponsored by DTG and was recently crowned Welsh National winner for Joinery and was also awarded a Silver medal at the UK National Final. Having won the Carpentry Skills Competition Wales last year, he has since been awarded a golden ticket to participate in the Skills Show competition later this year and, if successful, will secure a place to represent the UK in the WorldSkills competition in Russia in 2019.
Chris was delighted to receive a set of Lie-Nielsen Toolworks which included a block plane, a shoulder plane and a spoke shave, “I can’t wait to use the tools given to me by DTG, they’re the best of the best!”
