Derek Smart

The last apprentice to Whitehouse Bros., pioneer organbuilders of Queensland, Derek spent four years in the employ of local organ builder H.W. Jarrott before running his own furniture restoration business for ten years.  After some persuasion over a period of time, Derek eventually came to work for Simon in 1993, where he has been foreman and specialist in woodwork.  In his spare time he enjoys woodcarving at home.
