Tibby Singh Biography – Tibby Singh Wiki

Tibby Singh is an award-winning carpenter and joiner who has appeared on Channel 4’s Changing Rooms and BBC’s Money for Nothing. He was named BBC’s Young Carpenter of the Year in 2012.

Tibby’s passion for carpentry started at a young age. He did well at woodwork at GCSE “it was the only A grade I got” – so perhaps not surprisingly he was drawn towards a career in carpentry and joinery. “My great, great grandfather was a carpenter so I’m following in his footsteps,” he told The Yorkshire Post.

“I’ve always had a passion for woodworking,” Tibby told Channel 4. “I used to mess around with offcuts of timber, making things like pencil cases. When I got an A-grade at school, it was inevitable that I wanted to pursue a career in carpentry, so I went on to do an apprenticeship and I guess the rest is history.”

Tibby did an apprenticeship at the highly respected Leeds College of Building. In 2012, he was named as the BBC’s Young Carpenter of the Year. He has also won several other awards including the Institute of Carpenters’ Craft Competition and Federation of Master Builder’s Apprentice of the Year.

He has more than 15 years of experience under his toolbelt and works alongside family members to buy and renovate rundown buildings to create beautiful bespoke commercial and domestic properties.

“To be involved in this new version is a really prestigious moment for me and for my family, who have supported me from day one,” he told Channel 4.

When asked about his family’s take on him being a part of Changing Rooms, he said: “Coming from a Sikh background, we usually see Sikhs becoming doctors or accountants or lawyers, things like that. But I’ve had the full support from my family from day one. My mum’s really excited, I have to tell her to calm down. The whole family’s excited, hopefully we’ll be able to have viewing parties.”
