How did Dominic Chinea get into restorations?
We love Dominic on The Repair Shop and Jay and Dom's Home Fix - but how did he start his career in the restorations business? Chatting to the BBC, he said: "I love learning and I’m constantly trying to learn and improve new skills. Instead I always seem to think of myself in terms of the saying 'A jack of all trades, a master of none' dipping into all different subjects.
Dom is a regular on The Repair Shop
"My background was always art and graphic design, however my passion for cars and metalwork led to jobs in car restoration and metalwork. My set design career helped combine all my varying interests, both practical and artistic. Working on the Repair Shop has managed to also include my love of history, vintage and antiques."
