Mike Lindsey is a superb craftsman, a hard worker, and a good guy. I couldn't recommend a carpenter more highly. We needed a fence built to replace our old one that had been damaged by a hit and run driver. We had several "fence builders" come out to talk about the job and give us an estimate. They never even called back. The excuses went on: the job was too complicated; it would entail a finish carpenter that the company didn't have; they couldn't take on the job at the time. I almost gave up, then thought to search for a carpenter instead of a fence builder. That's how we found Mike. He worked with us to create exactly what we envisioned and offered suggestions that greatly improved the look and quality of the fence. His approach and pricing strove to make the job as fair as possible for himself, for his workers, and for us. He found us the best wood possible. The skill he has shown and the care he has taken in building the fence and swinging, saloon-style gate are remarkable. At last, we will a magnificent fence that will last for years. Soon, I'll be posting photos of the finished fence and gate.
Rene was easy to work with; he shows up on time, did quality work, and charged a fair price. Would recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire a carpenter.
Octavio did a wonderful job on a wide range or projects around our home. From door installs to a closet build- he can do it all. Not only were his prices extremely fair but he had such a wonderful attitude. Will definitely be hiring him back!!
Steve was knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and courteous. I definitely plan to hire him again in the future for handyman and construction projects.
I recently moved to Beverly Hills and bought a beautiful antique bed frame. The only problem with the bed frame was the open space underneath it. I have a beautiful little Bengal kitten that would have loved to have crawled under my bed and hid all day long. I considered purchasing a brand new bed frame that extended all the way to the floor to prevent my kitten from running under the bed, but thought perhaps an experienced carpenter could match the wood on the frame exactly and extend it all the way to the floor. I decided to place an ad on Thumbtack and Ricky responded to my request immediately. He did an incredible job. He responded to my request right away, offered an unbelievably inexpensive quote, and offered to come over as soon as possible to resolve the problem. He did such a wonderful job from start to finish - he not only matched the wood perfectly but made the installation seamless with the rest of my bed, which I thought would be nearly possible with an antique. I cannot emphasize what a fabulous job he did - I highly recommend him.
Repaired drywall and floorboards and fixed faulty plumbing valve in bathroom. Also installed mailbox at street. Came on two different days and showed up both times at the agreed on time. Did great work. Highly recommended. Thanks Ron.
Gary fixed all of my interior doors, which were dragging, not closing properly and, in one case, the top hinge had come undone. He also installed a new lock on my front door and it literally seems like a new door. It never quite closed or locked properly and now it's super smooth. In addition to this he built shelves in my garage and then rebuilt all of the casings and moldings around the side entrance to the garage (they had rotted and were the workmanship was shoddy). He then hung a new fiberglass door in the garage and trimmed it out with decorative molding so it would appear to be a wood door. It looks awesome, and the quality of work is superior. I've renovated four houses, and Gary is one of the best finishing carpenters I've ever encountered. He's also a super nice guy who is extremely easy to work with; I highly recommend him! In fact, I'll be hiring him again soon for a bedroom renovation I'm planning.
Kevin is quick, top notch carpenter, fairly priced. Finished product looks terrific. Would use again.
Project still ongoing however I found him to be very professional and hardworking. I will definitely look to hire him again for future projects.
Had 777 Painting and Construction put an attic in my garage and finish the garage. I found Jonathan and his crew to be great to work with. Jonathan would offer up cost saving suggestions, which I think is unusual in the contractor business. He'd rather see my money go toward something that mattered rather than spending it on something that he knew would not help overall. Very reasonably priced and did everything in a timely manner. Very happy with the work done and very proud to show it off to anybody that comes over. Would definitely hire Jonathan again, he's a great find.
They did a great job! I was very satisfied with their work. John is a very talented carpenter.
We hired Pedro to fix our bi-fold closet doors in two bedrooms which were broken off their rails, a couple of interior doors that no longer closed properly, and a couple of side gates that had closing mechanisms that did not work. We were amazed at Pedro's work. Not only did he know his carpentry stuff, but he was thorough, neat, and exceeded all our expectations. We have now found our carpenter for life, and will be using Pedro for other upcoming carpentry projects.
He knows his stuff! Former union carpenter. Made the effort to provide good customer service (arrived when he promised, left the work area clean, etc) as well as good work. (pocket door).

I have over 15 years of carpentry and finish carpentry experience in commercial and residential. I also have kitchen and bathroom remodeling experience, flooring, cabinetry, roofing, painting, etc. I also do custom builds such as entertainment centers/stands and bookcases/shelving. You let me know what you are looking for, and I will build it to your specifications.
Had some repairs done at my home and very pleased in the results that became of them. It's raised my property value so I can get more out of it when I decide to sell. Thank you for being so professional and understading.
